We loved celebrating our anniversary. The service was excellent and the food for the most part was pretty good.. Loved the spicy shrimp appetizer and the sweet potatoes souflea was awesome. I do think the price of the steak is high. We has the $69.00 ribeye and there was a lot of fat..couldn't chew it .I rarely will send anything back for fear of insulting the chef. Overall I give it a 90 out of 100

Greg was fantastic in the bar area. His service was outstanding and he was very helpful in making our meal selections. We love Eddie Merlots. The service and food are always great. Unfortunately, we have tried almost everything on the menu and know it by heart. We always wait for the season changes to see what new variation they offer. Happy hour is great time to visit.

Great food, great service. Our waiter Max was excellent and Hannah was wonderful at clearing out table. The masks HAVE TO GO! They are demeaning to everyone and serve no purpose whatsoever. Please ask Mayor Ginther to recind his mandate!

As always a wonderful dinner and service experience. We ordered the bourbon ribeye (our fav) and it came out hot and perfectly cooked. Lillian, our server, did an awesome job. We dine here often and always appreciate the attention to detail and quality of food. Thanks EM Team for another successful experience!
