Went for my wifes birthday. Dinner was great. Both of our steaks were over cooked first time around. We addressed it with our waitress and she brought us out 2 perfectly cooked ones. Overall it was a great night and the service was exceptional.

Our dinner as always was cooked and served to perfection. Our waiter Rob rounded off the experience by prompt and friendly service. He really made our night special.
The tables were spaced apart sufficiently enough where we felt very comfortable dining.

We will definitely be back!!

This is my favorite restaurant. I have been going there since they opened over 20 years ago, and not ONE time did I ever have to send something back. Everything is always cooked to order, and the service is ALWAYS above and beyond. I don't want to brag about it too much, to you all will make it too hard to get a table there!

We were at the first booth at the bar so it was a little noisier with patrons checking in or staff toting take out orders to and from the bar area.
Evan was attentive and did a great job. Food portions were good; cooked perfectly for our varied requirements and tasty.

We had dined here before but hadn’t been back since pandemic started. This was our first time dining in and our waiter Don was very attentive as well as other staff members. Our food was very good and cooked just right. Look forward to going back.

The steak was delicious and cooked medium just as ordered. The green beans were excellent! The baked potato should be served steaming hot, but was lukewarm. We did not call attention to it while there. Overall great service.

Heard so much about this place and it was spoken so highly as if it was a very upscale restaurant....we were the most dressed up ones there it seemed like. Got onion rings as an app and they were okay, nothing crazy. Came specifically for the steaks and that was fantastic! Wish there was more to choose from the sides other than 3 different kind of potatoes. Didn’t have room for dessert since the steaks were huge.

Will not be running back any time soon. Most likely will come back for a happy hour but not for a Valentine’s Day dinner.

Oddly enough this Steak house couldn’t cook my steak properly. Medium rare came out burnt around the outside and rare in middle. Looks like they used too high of heat, wasn’t worth sending it back but was disappointed.

We waiting 25 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. It was Valentines day so it was busy and we also requested bar seating that we did not get (no big deal). We frequently receive coupons in our email, and when we had asked if we could apply to our bill it was denied which I thought could've been handled better (the coupon did not have any special limitations or expiration date). Food was very good so that was the only plus.
