They changed their Thanksgiving dinner. We have eaten Thanksgiving dinner here for at least the last 5 years. This year it was horrible. The turkey was out of a can or something. The dressing had no seasoning, the gravy was congealed. The cranberry sauce was like cranberries that had been tossed in sugar. They still charged 44.95 for some of the nastiest food ever. I couldn't believe they were serving this. My dog received my food.

The food was sub par compared to every other time we've been. Nothing was hot. Bland and seemed mass produced

We had a reservation and when we arrived they told us would be an hour’s wait. Not sure why you need a reservation if you have to wait. That said, we did not have to wait an hour. The food was good…not great. We have eaten Thanksgiving dinner here before and it overall better. We were somewhat disappointed.

Our wait staff was very attentive. I would say that service was excellent. The food was very good. My steak slice like butter with a hot knife. I do feel that the crying baby at a nearby table was not appropriate for a restaurant of this level. It was disconcerting and took away from the ambiance. I’m not sure what their policy is, but this is not the place to bring a baby.

Waited 30 min for bread that we had to ask for. The waiter was too worried about the table of 9 vs my table of 2. Never came to ask if we needed something. We had to ask a random waiter/waitress to even get tea refills. It was my 2nd time but my girlfriends 1st time as we were celebrating our 10yr anniversary. My 1st time was a great experience but not this last visit. Very disappointed but still tipped as I should have.

The services we received from (Mr. Bruce) was awesome! Very friendly and attentive during the whole visit. 2 out of the 5 guest - was disappointed with the item (Filet), which we both ordered. The Filet lacked seasoning and was extremely bland, which caused us to request steak sauce to add flavor. In addition, the Sweet Potato Casserole was stiff and not as delicious as previous visits. But overall - my mother enjoyed her meal and birthday (which Bruce made her feel special - Thanks a million!!) - So that's all that mattered :) Hopefully next visit... things will be a better!

Service was good.

Not the best steak I've ever had at a RC around the country.

Apple tart was the best thing on the table. Get extra vanilla ice cream.

My wife and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary here. We had a 8:30 reservation that we never got seated for. We got there early at 7:45 and checked in. People came in after us and got seated before us with the same 8:30 reservation. We waited until after 9 and we still didn’t get a table. Other customers commented and said that me and my wife were there before them and they were getting seated before us. We’ve been there a few times for our anniversary but we will not be going back.

Poor management. If you plan to have a party of 8 or more they automatically separate your guest. With reservations. I was also in a separate room away from the other guest. Me and my guest left.

The server showed up approximately three times, steak was not worth $60, and we were there 2 hours! Don’t waste your money!

Amazing date night. Nice table and a beautiful bottle of wine. This was my husband’s and I first time and definitely won’t be the last. Our server was Ken and he was absolutely amazing. Even brought us dessert AFTER we declined because it was after closing. Truly amazing dinning experience.

Overrated. T bone steak was burned. Creamy spinach had no taste. Salad was good and so was the wines. Too dark in the whole restaurant. I like the light on so I can see my food. Server was nice.

Food was terrible. The calamari was over cooked. The stuffed mushrooms were tasteless. My wife’s steak was cooked to the right temperature but the Oscar style topping was not good. The bernaise sauce was inedible.

Had a reservation for a booth, the special instructions were ignored on our request. When I pointed out the mistake (tired seating us at a table) they said I would have to wait because they were busy. When you pay for quality service one would expect someone to read and pay attention to a simple request.

The 500 degree plates over cooked the steak. When you order a medium steak and it’s placed on a hot plate, it should be slightly undercooked so when it arrives it finishes cooking. This was not the case, my medium filet ended up being close to well done.

The server was amazing and was rewarded for his services, the other food ordered was what is expected at a steak house.
