Wife and I were dying to get back here after the quarantine ended. We were delighted to see it open again and rushed down there.

This place, as usual, did not disappoint. Food was outstanding and the service fantastic as usual. This is our family’s #1 spot to eat!! Absolute greatness!!

Overall our experience is always good(food, service and etc), but we missed the old ways. Nevertheless, safety and compliance is foremost and paramount during these pandemic times.

It was a little different with the social distancing. They took your order and brought a couple slices of whatever meat you wanted but we had excellent service and the food was great as always.

There's an offer on open table for $40.99 that you are asked to choose when making a reservation. They do not honor that at the restaurant.

The salad bar and the meats were excellent. The king crab legs were very small though. The blueberry cheesecake was heavenly!

Experience was just ok. Took a long time to refill drink orders. We had to slide our table over to leave enough room for servers to get by, several of the cuts of meat were on the fatty side and rotation of meat skewers was off ... did not see a few cuts at all and the pork tenderloin did not come by until the very end.

So much delicious meats, all cooked to perfection and served up by the most attentive, considerate staff. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday and the kids loved it so much they asked to go back for their own birthday celebration next time. We will be back!!

Do not recommend lunch buffet. Dinner is better. We had a reservation for 2:45pm. We arrived early and were sested at 2:15pm. Our waiter was nice, but did not refill our drinks, or ask if we wanted another beverage. The meats were yummy, but the cheese chicken and sausage kept reappearing. Not much variety. The fruits and dessert was scarce/emoty when we arrived and was not refilled. When we asked the gentlemen with meat walking around if they would be refilling the fruit or cookies...we were told the kitchen was getting ready for dinner and the lunch portion was whatever was left and currently out. Basically not much was left. It was only 2:45pm. Lunch doesn’t end until 4pm. This was my Father’s 70th Birthday lunch. Huge disappointment. I told them ahead of time it was his birthday, staff never acknowledged that either. It was a waste of money. I have come to this restaurant multiple times for dinner and never had this lack of service or running out of food. I would not recommend lunch here, but dinner is always a pleasant experience.

The food was excellent but the impression that my party got was only okay. The service seemed to be slow when we ordered alcoholic drinks, it took a while to receive them. We went for a birthday and even notified the restaurant and they said they provide cakes for $20 but we asked if we were allowed to bring our own which they said was fine. When it came time for cake, the waiter did NOT notify us that there was a $15 fee just to cut the cake. We ended up just paying that amount but it should have been atleast stated before actually cutting the cake. We kept on having to look around for our waiter to simply ask a question or ask for at item. The food was great but the service overall is very lacking. I also stated that the birthday was a surprise and the host actually ruined the surprise right when we arrived by saying our party of 8 was already here. just wish they look some of the comments provided in the reservation into consideration.

Yes and no. They were really slow on getting the meats out, even the ones that were special requested. One of the gentleman seemed annoyed and didnt believe we had special requested a meat 25 minutes prior. It's also like a maze to get from one end of the room to another. There needs to beat better setup somehow. It's just a little squished. I think they're a little cheap on bringing their meats out. We also were in this side room and the room was vibrating because of the club either next door or underneath. That wasn't very comfortable. I joked with the server and said at least my feet were getting massaged.

On a positive note, the salad bar is great.

It was Valentines Dinner for my group. This was the first time for 2. The meal and service did not disappoint. They accommodated us to sit indoors beautifully. Juliana was our server and the other servers who brought out the meats were so personable! We’ll be back. We truly enjoyed this place! Everything was delicious!

Rodrigo did an amazing job at serving my boyfriend and I for Valentine's Day, a fully booked evening for everyone. He was very attentive and deserves a promotion or a raise.

The seafood was not good. The crab legs were over cooked and small. The crab leg chowder was bland. The meat was good overall some where over cooked (well done). The pork was dry.
