Excellent food, not very accommodating when changing reservations, they know their food is good and so they don’t think they have to be kind to me. And very expensive , but suggest you splurge!

The food is mostly OK, but not for the price!!! I've found many steak houses that had better food for half the price. Half! On top of that, we could hear everyone around us having to cut all the accouterments out of their steak dinner. (Salad, potatoes and vegetables, ALL STANDARD WITH ANY OTHER STEAK DINNER ANYWHERE ELSE). The couple next to us had to split a steak, split one bowl of potatoes, and not do any soups, salads, vegetables etc. On top of that, they offer NO bread. So basically you get a slab of meat and nothing with it. Better order water of you're thirsty. I make good money and will never go back. My fiance and I each got out own steak and ended up splitting a veggie and splitting a potatoe. One drink each and shelled out 222.00 dollars. I was hungry as soon as I got home. I missed having soup and salad and having to split the 2 sides we chose from. My fiance missed the bread and still spent 222.00. Never would go back or recommend. Very poor value. Ripping off Minneapolis one person at a time. Lastly, my fiance is a veteran and we were there for veterans day. Nobody asked because nobody cared. Finally as we were leaving I asked for him and the waiter said "um oh yeah, I'll get you a dessert" and came back with it 20min later.

Although you pay quite a bit, the seating can be tight and the atmosphere is very noisy. Despite this, the service was above and beyond! Really good drinks and an endless menu of liquor and wine. Everything was supremely fresh but a bit on the spicy side for my acid reflux ;) The cornbread was not very good, the longbone was delicious, and the sausages were very spicy. Would try it again to sample some other items but would try the dining room or a booth instead of the seating just inside the front door that is tight.

Excellent service and selections. Filet melted in my mouth. Wish there were more veggie and mid level entrees. $30 - $40.00 range - ther than salads.

We came here for a birthday. It was nearly impossible to hold a conversation. Part of that was being 10 inches away from the next tables, but also just where were were seated we were surrounded by groups. Our server was great the entire evening.
We ordered the Crafted Charcuterie, Pork Chop, Long Rib, Creole Shrimp Mac & Cheese, Smoked Baby Carrots, Skillet Cornbread, and Dark Chocolate Cake.
The Charcuterie was good but nothing special. The Pork Chop was delicious. The Long Rib was mostly fat and too peppery in places, but the other bites were amazing. The mac & cheese was worth getting again. The carrots were one of the better items. The cornbread was cornbread but the butter was enjoyable. The chocolate cake was good if you got a bite of all the elements at once.
I would definitely come back for a private event or at a time of day where you could hear those you intended to enjoy a meal.
It was nearly impossible to hold a conversation

We had the sausage sampler and the long rib. Both were terrific—well prepared and full of flavor. The menu has a little bit of everything, and everything seemed really good. We also enjoyed the brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. Bring your appetite, the meals are rich, but worth every bite.

Our group of 4 was looking forward to having dinner at this restaurant & was very disappointed. It was so noisy we could not have a decent conversation. Everyone was shouting. We all ordered the fish special which was over cooked. Not worth the $45 dollars for sure. Service was spotty. Restaurant is over-rated.

I read many amazing reviews about this restaurant, so I had very high hopes. Our appetizer was the battered fries, and those were amazing, but our entrees were a let down. My husband had the bone in New York Strip and was not satisfied, and I ordered the salmon salad, which was also not very good. The shrimp mac and cheese was delicious and I would recommend that. The servers were very nice, but it was also a very loud environment, I had to talk very loudly so my husband could hear me.
