Best steak I have ever had! We ordered the beef tenderloin for two and it was amazing. It was cooked perfectly- and was extremely flavorful and tender. Service was excellent.

Just a phenomenal meal, all around - one of the best steaks I've ever had (and I've had lots), fantastic and warm service, and a throwback experience. Cannot wait to visit Minneapolis again, just so I can go back.

We were there for our 25th wedding anniversary. Our waiter, Shelly, was awesome! Multiple employees took great care of us during the meal making sure plates were removed and silverware was fresh.

Food was outstanding as well. Shelly had great recommendations for us.

We really enjoyed a special family meal. The restaurant was very busy but the service and food were as spectacular as ever. Excellent steak and seafood, well crafted cocktails and an unexpectedly amazing wedge salad. Can’t wait for business lunches to resume so I have reason to come back more often!

Our server Anthony was both hilarious and the perfect staff member. He was extremely prompt with all food and water without being pushy and made excellent recommendations. Very personable and made our experience wonderful. The food was absolutely delicious. I do not eat steak and decided to try the signature steak for two with my husband and it was divine to say the least. We also had a delicious dessert and it was a wonderful birthday dinner. Would absolutely come back.
