    We've been to this restaurant several times and the food & service is always excellent. This time they seated us in a different part of the dining room on the other side of the salad bar- to the right as you enter the dining room. Ambiance was much nicer. It was quiet and we were able to have a conversation in normal volumes.

    There were 6 of us dining in for a meal. I had the ribeye and was very disappointed. It was extremely tough. Our tab was over $300 for the entire meal. I expected better quality from your restaurant. Jessica

    The servers were appropriately attentive and timely. The drinks were perfect. The appetizers were delicious! My husband had the peanut butter chocolate cheesecake and it was divine, I had the heart cake and it was blah but very pretty. The main dishes sucked. Mine tasted like Spaghettios.

    The best steak I’ve had in years. 28 day aged and great soup/salad bar. The menu said “enormous” baked potato it wasn’t a lie! On par with the upscale steak houses in Fort Wayne if not better. Well worth the drive from Indiana

    We have gone here many times and our experience is always good. Went for my husbands birthday dinner. He wanted the tomahawk steak. They were sold out. We were there on a Friday and our reservation was for 8:15 pm so we understood. The server was very pleasant and helpful and apologetic. She helped my husband find the perfect steak that he would like for his birthday. Salad bar is always full and clean. The bang bang seafood appetizer is always a win. I tried the swordfish. It was absolutely amazing and not dry. I’m kinda jealous. I have made swordfish at home and it always comes out dry. Our overall experience was amazing. The desserts were amazing too! 😃my only critique would be if they could cut the stems off of the Spinich shorter. I almost choked on a stem of a piece of Spinich from the salad bar. It’s probably my fault I coulda cut it myself and I thought I had. No worries. 😉 we will be back. We love this place in little rural defiance ohio.

    While we were seated upon arrival and our server was very attentive. I thought the prices were a little too high and the whipped potatoes and green beans were less than tepid but the overall flavor was very good. We got dessert to go and both of us very much enjoyed them later in the evening.
