Steakhouse
Repeal is Whiskey Row’s only oak-fired steakhouse, located at the birthplace of J.T.S. Brown & Sons Bourbon Company. A stylish departure from a traditional steakhouse, Repeal uses a wood-fired grill stoked daily with reclaimed American Oak bourbon barrels. Repeal is a tribute to the Repeal of Prohibition – a place to see, be seen and celebrate the rich tradition of the building in which it resides.


Please call the restaurant for a reservation with 5 or more guests.

upon arrival, and seeing that there was plenty of open seating, I requested a full-size booth, since I am a large man with back problems. The man at the door then said we could have a half-booth and seated us by the kitchen door, where the back of my chair was bumped repeatedly by the waitstaff. I informed Josh, our waiter, of this and he immediately moved us to a full-size booth. The rest of the meal was enjoyable, though quite noisy with chatter. The food was excellent and expertly prepared from the lump crab cake, the caeser salad, golden mashed potatoes, creamed spinach (best ever), unbelievable bread, and the amazing Repeal style filet that melts in your mouth! Wonderful meal and was given a delicious house bread pudding to take home (since I was too full to eat it then). Service was very good and over-all 4 of 5 stars on the experience.

Bread was to die for. Server was funny and boisterous. Petite Filet was melt in your mouth. Creamed spinach was the best I’ve ever had. Bread pudding was delectable. Martinis were flowing and a great time was had by all.

We didn’t get to keep our reservation due to the dining room being closed. Still worth giving a good review for the courtesy phone call and the excellent service we have had in the past.

This was my third visit to Repeal, one at the bar prior to the theater, once for a celebration meal, and once for meeting a friend. The needs were all different but Repeal lived up to its reputation for three different types of visits

Our server, Gage, was very experienced and professional. He knew all the menu items well, both food and beverage. It was my second time dining at Repeal. In my opinion, it is at the top of all the local steak restaurants, and yet the price points are quite competitive. The wine list is superb (and also fairly priced) including very well-curated by the glass selections. And the bourbon list is unparalleled.
