We had the worst waitress and service ever! There were 4 of us and the restaurant was not crowded but we spent 3 hours there - not because we wanted to take our time but because the waitress was bad and perhaps the kitchen was backed up as well. It all started with not enough wine glasses on the table, the water glasses were dirty and they were out of the first bottle of wine we ordered. It took quite some time before she took our order, never told us about any kind of specials. We ordered an appetizer and it took so long to come we forget we even ordered it! The wrong meals came out for 3 of us and when we told her, she said they ran out of the boneless rib-eye and serving the bone in but when the check came and we were charged for the more expensive bone in, she came back and said she made a mistake and pushed the wrong button even though that's not what the original story was, and that she was going to be 'out of $50' - so rude. She never brought dessert tray around and when we asked, she said they ran out of most desserts and were only 3 left, and she only gave the name and never described them. To top it off, this was supposed to be the 2nd night of their grand-reopening - you would have thought they'd have their best wait staff and restaurant serving things up promptly.

Restaurant was quite busy for a Sunday evening and we did have to wait approximately 11 minutes before being seated but Everyone was super nice from the hostess to the manager who took us to the bar for a glass of wine while we waited for our table to be ready. The food was so worth the few minute wait! We had the best server. Absolutely will be a regular spot for us. I was excited to find the PUB is open for lunch and has HAPPY HOUR everyday. Can’t wait to bring the girls from the office.

We made a reservation 4 days prior to coming out at 7pm, we got there at 6:55pm and wasn’t seated until 7:45pm. In addition, the waiter we had (an older woman) was very unhelpful and had poor service. On top of that we waited over an hour after we put our order of food in to receive our food. Also, I had put in a special request when I made the reservation for a simple small cup of lemon wedges to be on our table for my partner and they failed to even acknowledge that request was even made. Additionally, I asked for my steak to be medium well, and it came out very under cooked, at medium rare. The only positive thing was my partners sushi, that was delicious! Finally, the waiter took over 25 minutes to take our money and give us change, so we were forced to sit at our table while waiting for my debit card back for almost half an hour.

We made reservations for Valentine's Day. Our special requests were accommodated. The host and servers were polite and thorough. There was a limited holiday menu; however, it featured enough variety for most tastes. The price was about what was expected. We had received a 20% off coupon in the mail just the day and were able to use it with no restrictions.
We had shrimp cocktail for appetizer. The shrimp were excellent. For my main entree, I had filet mignon which was cooked perfectly. We shared lava cake for dessert. It was ok.
The ambiance could have been better. The lighting was a little bright for dinner time. We went at 4pm so maybe it was too early to dim the lights. Also, they played country music over the loud speaker. I didn't care for that at all. It should be something more calm and relaxing.

Celebrated our Mother's 90th birthday here last night and the food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation. The wait staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The newly renovated dinning room is warm and inviting with a family friendly, fine dinning atmosphere. Couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely be back !! Highly recommend !

New Years Eve plus birthday celebration. Was put in back room, corner table. Table next to us received meal - steaks not cooked as asked - they literally got up and left. Our appetizer and salad came out almost simultaneously. Asked for soy sauce for sushi - waitress “couldn’t find it”. Tables facing us never cleared/cleaned- we had view of dirty linens and dishes most of our time there. Meal was mediocre for a fine steakhouse as was service. Doubtful there will be a return - esp since no response was given to an email I sent to their website.

The service was horrible. 45 mins to bring out appetizers and they brought out wrong stuff. Four attempts to order a beer, finally bus boy got me a beer. Brought out three meals to our table and never brought out last two remain meals. Canceled those meals, told them to bring check and they tried to make us happy by offering a free dessert! Told them no thanks, didn’t want to wait all night for that. Place could be good if they got more servers and a couple sushi chefs. There only seemed to be one sushi chef when we were there. Really was disappointed!

The "Prime" ribeye was not prime and tasted horrible. It appeared and tasted like it was grilled on a burnt grill that had not ever been cleaned (steak covered with pieces of char), and the steak quality was not good. Service was almost non-existent at times even though there were only a few tables occupied. It was very unfortunate that this restaurant was highly recommended by my hotel, so I informed the hotel about my meal so that they could warn other customers about the possibility of getting a bad meal and less than adequate service. Will never go back! Diners beware!

The restaurant is very nice inside. It doesn't seem to get very busy either. We made a reservation for a Friday night and it wasn't needed since only a few tables were occupied. the food is good, but for a slow night there were some waits in the service. Think the server might have been taking a smoke break or something. Anyway, the food was good, the prices are fair and the atmosphere is very nice. And it's much less crowded than the other chain restaurants, so I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Best steak my husband ever had! Our waitress Tomi Lynn was professional & personable & made our first dining experience wonderful! I had the broiled seafood & it was delicious as well! The only drawback was the loud thumping bass from the event next door, but I was told they are remodeling!😘❤👏👌

The food was excellent as always there and the waitress, Kelly, was most pleasant. There was a wedding going on in the banquet room next to the restaurant so it was a little noisier than usual.

The service was great and my porterhouse steak was excellent with flavor, but it was a bit tough for being a center cut prime that’s advertised on their website. I had a hard time cutting the steak using a steak knife. In a real world evaluation, I would give their flavor 5 stars and tenderness 2 stars. My fiancée has the filet mignon and it was 5 stars across the board.

We went on Valentine’s Day. Firstly, be careful will when using the open table app. The front desk insisted I didn’t have a reservation. I had to show them The reservation my phone. When I was seated water and bread were brought to the table quickly. After April. 30 mins of waiting, I asked the front desk where our waiter was. They apologized and immediately fixed the problem. The waiter we had was very nice and brought our dinner in a timely manner. The food was amazing. We both ordered the porterhouse steak w/ onions and mushrooms. The steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The Asparagus (tender and not over cooked) and mashed potatoes perfect as well. I also ordered the union soup. It wasn’t too salty and the bread in the soup not overly soggy. Both meals allowed us one free desert to share with each other. We had the lava cake w/ Whipped cream. Very rich taste. I was even given another free desert to help make up for not having a server the first 30 mins when We were seated. Over all valve of the meal wasn’t as good as expected. I have been here Several times in the past. The porterhouse is usually 29.99 on the normal menu. And on the valentines menu, it was a little 36 dollar for the same steak. Only difference was no desert included with a purchase of 2 meals. So I will recommend not going here on Valentine’s Day itself. Wednesday’s is my favorite day. They have some of the best prime rib I have ever had. And it too is usually priced at 29.99. Overall experience was great but jacking the prices up on the meal for Valentine’s Day,... not so good.

Been to restaurant about 6 times previously. They have had changes to menu and staff several times. Gave them another try. Must say, the food was not bad but Valentine's menu was very limited. Service was horrible though. We weren't even told that we could order from their normal menu until we saw food served to the table next to us. We unfortunately were seated right next to the kitchen which gave us CONSTANT traffic for such a private holiday. No compensation was offered unless you count the baby scoop of vanilla ice cream which was given to go along with the chocolate lava cake dessert. I will visit the bAr next door again but the restaurant---I don't think so.
