Went here to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had reservations for 1830 and we were promptly seated. Our waitress "Emma" did and excellent job at getting everything we needed. We will be back.

Great ambiance. Restaurant's help with our reservation was outstanding (we had to make a couple of updates and they were very accommodating) and server very pleasant & professional. There was a delay with meal (others around us received their orders long before we did) which would have been ok if the manager or server had kept us posted on the delay. The chicken fried steak & gravy was the best I've ever had, highly recommend. Another in our group ordered the filet and it was overcooked. The brussel sprouts were great - roasted deliciousness. Overall would have been 5 stars if better communication & steak correct. Would also suggest if staff going to wear masks (I'm fine with that) the masks should also cover the nose (or what's the point?).

The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were not sweet. They were out of the butter smothered lobster so they had lobster tails to add to our steak and they were very over-priced and again the seafood did not have the sweet taste one hopes for. I will say our steaks were wonderfully cooked and seasoned well and tender. The whipped potatoes were dried out. Overall a bummer evening with a BIG price tag. I don't mind paying big when the food is good.

The ambience was also lacking, we could hardly carry on a conversation without repeating.

The chicken fried steak was extremely spicy! When it was mentioned to the manager, he told us they had recently changed the seasoning and he would mention it to the kitchen. He made no offer fix something else or adjust the bill.

The service was great but for the price the food did not measure up. Ordered the porterhouse for two, cooked to order but very tough. When you have to saw with the knife, you either have a dull knife or the meat is not that great.

Ordered a bottle of wine; server poured the wine into a glass which we found to be dirty (lipstick marks all over it). One of the sides (mac n cheese) did not make to our table until we were halfway done with the steaks. Steaks were ok but far from great, NY strip not done as ordered (medium instead of medium-rare).

I took my girlfriend here for our first anniversary and I could not begin to describe the amount of pleasure and satisfaction I felt for myself and her. First off the waiter knew exactly which drinks would compliment our date and food, the greatest bourbon I’ve had in a while. Secondly the filet was beyond delicious and my girl friend loved the mash potatoes and Salmon. Their deserts are even better, and they even have these lovely desert cocktails, I had to see my girl try the s’mores one and it did not disappoint!

For the price it was absolutely worth the fine dining.

Overall a good experience but the brunch menu left something to be desired. The ambiance was great, wait staff were nice but not atentive to empty drink glasses, my water was never refilled. The food was nothing special and was extremely bland. We will consider regular dining but wouldn’t eat brunch here again.

The food was not as good as we thought it’d be. Servers were friendly and attentive, however for a restaurant of this caliber, the steak and sides left us feeling ripped off. Quail legs were very tasty, so were the cocktails.

Excellent service at both the bar and dining. My steak was just slightly overcooked but was still very tender and flavorful. Wine selection is good but could use a bit more depth. We will come again. Desserts, were wonderful. Thank you!

Fabulous food, great service! We tried multiple appetizers, steaks, the pork chop and sides. Highlights were the pork chop and Mac & cheese, with the whipped potatoes and crispy Brussel sprouts taking a close second. Steaks were very well flavored and well cooked.

For dessert we had the cheesecake and carrot cake. Both were very good. Honestly, I think we all just could have had a second serving of the cornbread instead, though- it’s incredible. Only complaint was the coffee wasn’t very hot - but they brewed a new pot for us.

Overall an excellent meal with excellent service. We would recommend.

I wished they had a better brunch menu, but the ones online were apparently just special events. Otherwise, the food was good and so was the service.
