Best steaks and prime rib in town! We took another couple to eat there and they also said it was the best prime rib they have ever had. The chef came by table too which was nice and appreciated.

Always good steaks and all that comes with it. Very good location for celebrations (Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc.)

By no means inexpensive, would like it to be a bit less costly so we could go more often.

It was the first time there. The atmosphere was clean with nice decor. It was a slow time with just a few patrons. The server was in a hurry to turn the table. My guest made the comment that our server acted like a fast food server in a nice upscale restaurant. I had asked for soup, before the salad was served. The server did this by bringing the soup and within 15 seconds brought a salad which was soggy, not crisp. The medium steak was brought to the table which was cooked well done. The server looked at the steak and said, “yes it’s over cooked” and left. Halfway through desert the server brought the check, threw it on the table and said, “no rush”.

At no time was a apology made for either the poor service or food.

This was a Birthday dinner which was certainly not up to par.

Chef Ben, as always, does it right. Our waiter, Sam, always treats us with the right balance of friendliness and professionalism. We usually spend $100 + tip for cocktails, a glass of wine and dinner. Good value.

Chef Ben is an amazing chef! He's such an asset. We have become return customers since he's been there. Our waiter Steven was excellent and made the evening very enjoyable. The hostess was a very sweet lady as well. We love going places where we feel appreciated. Thank you so much for a wonderful anniversary dinner.

I have been there before and the service and food was great. This time it was disappointing. The prime rib was not cooked correctly so then had to be thrown on the grill, which changes the flavor of it. Last time it was nice and tender and this time it was tough. You pay alot for steaks and prime rib, so expect them to be high quality. The baked potato this time was over done and tough. One person got mashed potatoes and they were absolutely horrible. Everyone at the table thought so! The salad and the bread were good.

I was not impressed. The prime rib was tender but had no flavor. My glazed baby carrots were way under cooked. Waiter did a good job.

My husband and I were here for dinner before a concert. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The busboy was the hardest working guy we’ve ever seen! We had waters and a bread basket before we had even settled in. Drinks from the bar were slow, but nicely crafted. Filet, very nice, needed seasoning however. Shrimp and grits, too much on the plate, also needed seasoning. Overall, good place for dinner out, but a bit pricey.

Everything was great except for the rib eye steak. It was tasteless and worthy only in a one star restaurant. Very low value for the price.

Brussel spouts were very delicious, best thing I can say about my experience... ordered a 22 oz dry aged ribeye rare side of med and it came out blue! Sent it back and they reheated the exact same steak which has been cut in half and now it was well done no pink anywhere to be found! A $70 steak should be cooked to perfection every time no questions asked! Also had the spinach artichoke dip which tasted like came from a can! Salad was minimal effort at best!
