    The service was EXCELLENT. Michael was very attentive but not overly present. The food was pretty pricey but was overall very good. I personally had the pork chop. The taste was good but the first two bites I took were full of fat. It kind of turned me off to be able to enjoy the rest of it. I had an add on crab cake and it was so delicious! The ribeye was marbled perfectly. My daughter said it was in the top three of the best ribeyes she’s ever had and was cooked to perfection. The prime rib was also delicious per my husband. We had onion rings and crab claws as appetizers. Both delicious. For dessert, we had a brownie, a piece of pecan pie, and the butter crunch dessert (can’t think of the exact name of it). All were delicious except the pecan pie was a little too done around the edges. Overall a good first experience and we will be back.

    We were greeted when we arrived. We were seated a couple of minutes prior to our reservation time. Waiters explained any/all options or specials available. Wr did not feel rushed to make dinner choices. Food was over-the-top good. Everyone we interacted with seemed genuinely grateful that we were there and they wanted to make sure our experience was second to none.

    Had a reservation on a Sunday night,our 46th anniversary..waited 15 minutes to be seated. Sat at a middle table but our waiter would ignore us. We usually leave extra large tips but not on the 18th…he was slow, didn’t check on us as we needed something twice and just let it go as we were close to be done. The food was amazing. This waiter just was that bad.

    If this were my first experience dining, I would have never returned. We were in the restaurant seated for 1 he 38 minutes before leaving. We were seated 30 minutes before the server finally stopped to take our food order. Let me just list the issues- Too long to great and take order No kids menu offered or a child’s cup for my 3 year old - so I let her play with the open glass of water Did not take app order or offer Did not inform of specials - soups or dessert Order was taken 28 minutes after were seated Appetizer and Salad were delivered timely and delicious 30 minutes after the salad plates were cleared our main course -2 steak frites were finally delivered- total time seated 1HR 30 mins. I asked for the check before the food came and no apologies were mentioned by the server. Briefly spoke the manager- about table 32. Offered dessert but I was beyond ready to leave without with my dinner.
