Steak was great but really surprised they don’t serve sautéed mushrooms. We’ve been going for 3 years and always ask for mushrooms. Even the waitress last night said she was asked that 3 times that evening.

Place was busy but hostess seated us early.
Server,Matthew was very knowledgeable and helpful.
We had a nice leisurely meal without feeling rushed even though it was a football weekend.
Scallops were nicely prepared. Sides are generous. Even the house salad was a generous portion.

We shared the Prime Steak Tacos, followed by my wife having the Chicken Fried Steak and I had the burger. The Chicken Fried Steak accompanied by mash potatoes and green beans was excellent! My burger was not just a normal burger, but with steak trimmings and a homemade bun! They brought a Creme Brulee for my wife and her birthday that made her eyes roll back in her head!

From the moment we arrived things were not going smoothly. I booked a 7:15pm reservation so that way we could avoid a dinner rush and not have to stand around. However, we arrived right at 7:15pm and had to wait another 10-15 minutes in order for our table to be cleaned. This forced us to go sit at the bar which isn’t a big deal but in my mind it begs the question why did we even bother with a reservation. Then upon sitting down we were paired with a sub par waitress that really ruined the experience honestly. There was no enthusiasm or even a simple laugh, the entire time we felt rushed to eat and hurry up and leave. Starting out dinner, when we received our cornbread, we were only halfway through with the skillet and our waitress walks up without saying a word. She reaches and grabs all our plates and utensils then walks off. Only to return when our order of wine from the bar was ready which seemed like a sampler size from Olive Garden. Then we proceeded to order our plates where it just felt like we were not welcomed. I was asked about upgrading my steak to a dry aged $75 steak that “I probably have never experienced before” and that the $50 steak I ordered probably wasn’t the same. Also, a heads up about the steaks; they don’t come with any sides at all so be prepared to consider sharing sides or you can order extra. Then the entire time we ate it seemed like almost every 5 minutes we were asked if we were done eating. I’m not some entitled person that expects my server to walk on their hands and knees for me. However, when there’s no enthusiasm, smile, or sincerity shown that’s where I have a problem. It felt like we were just another bill paid at the end of the night instead of a welcoming experience. Don’t get me wrong the food was great but the service was completely lacking to complete a great experience. I’ve lived in the area for half my life and would recommend Christopher’s World Grille and Casa Do Brasil before coming here. Dinner was eaten on 10/17

The food was terrible. The salmon was extremely fishy tasting and the steak was tough, dry, overcooked, and tasted very bland with way too much salt. For a restaurant that uses that boasts a wood fired grill there was no flavor development from the wood and honestly you wouldn’t have known if you weren’t told. The prices were high as I expected for a steakhouse, but they are higher than other steakhouses in the area and the food quality was much lower than others in the area. The restaurant was decently noisy, not distracting, but also not quiet. The ambience is very modern and has wine racks everywhere and wooden themes throughout. I may have come on a bad night, but it was certainly not a good experience when I went and I would not recommend it to anyone.
