This was our second visit and unfortunately it will be our last.

The place was full but clearly understaffed. The bartender was also working as a server and he simply could not keep up. Pretty unfair to him to be put in that position.

The kitchen was also quite slow, 45 mins for 3 salads and a soup, of which we had to request the soup as again the bartender was making drinks and forgot to bring it out.

Once the food arrived it was very, very good. Well worth the price. We had a strip, ribeye, salmon and ribs. All excellent. And the corn casserole is amazing.

We were not offered dessert and we requested the check. The bartender saw our frustration, 2 hours from the time we sat down to the time we got the check. Not a big deal usually but again it was clear they were understaffed.

We left and while walking to the car the owner sticks his head out the door and says "thanks for coming in" unfortunately a little late.

I'm very sad as the place has great potential and the food is very good. But the lack of service just made it a frustrating experience.

I love a locally owned establishment, which I why we went there, but ..................

Overall a great experience. The ambiance is VERY lacking. Located in a strip mall with minimal decor. Although there seemed to be an additional dining room that we did not experience, the main dining room was very bright and too close to the kitchen area. That said, the food was excellent! Will for sure go back.

Food was good, but not great, particularly in light of the price tag. I don't mind a dive, but the food should compensate for the poor location and scene. Also, they were out of much of the offerings when we ordered.

The waiter was nice enough, but at times rather curt. Again, you shouldn't have 4 star prices with mediocre service that is no better, and perhaps worse, than a chain.

Love a locally owned establishment, but sadly will not be back to this one.

The food may be the finest in southern indiana. The bourbon selection is one of the best i have seen outside of Kentucky as the wine list is stellar as well. Owner/chef stopped by our table and was gracious and quite witty. Will definatly return.

The restaurant was Ok service just aOK. We had to wait longer than we should have to be seated. We were not acknowledged when we came inside. My filet mignon was good cooked right but the side dish there just wasn't enough of it for the price I was paying. What I recommend maybe maybe not.

We loved it! Great dinner, nice place. Its a small place with Sinatra music playing overhead. Very relaxing setting. Celebrated my sons 25th birthday and were greeted by both the hostess and waiter with Happy Birthday to him, nice touch. My bone in ribeye was excellent and cooked to perfection. All of our meals were cooked correctly and tasted fantastic. They have a nice wine selection. Chef came out to see how our meal was,which I appreciated. We will be back.

We ate there on Saturday night. After sitting at our table for over 15 minutes one of the waiters, who wasn't ours, finally acknowledged us. He was good the rest of the night but the waiter who was supposed to have our table never said anything. Another couple walked out while we were eating because they weren't acknowledged by wait staff either. A little disappointed for a $100 dinner for two.

We were seated immediately upon arrival right at our reservation time. The restaurant was only about half full. We waited longer than usual for someone to take our drink order. We ordered both drinks and food once waiter arrived. For some reason, my son's food was brought out about 10 minutes before the rest of the family's. Food was all very good.
