This was my third visit to Dewey's, the second for brunch. We were a raucous group, and the servers were patient and lovely to us. Trey, the chef, came out personally to say hello and ask how one of the dishes was (and FYI: it was DELICIOUS). If I could eat here every week, I would do so. Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous ambiance.

As usual, the steaks at 350 Grill were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. We've never been disappointed when we choose to dine out at 350 Grill.

About the restaurant
Everybody has their own idea about what makes a perfect steak. Yes, it always starts with a great cut of 100% Black Angus beef from cattle raised on small farms and fed an all-vegetarian diet to promote superior marbling and outstanding flavor. But which cut is best, the degree to which a steak is cooked, and what best complements a steak's flavor — well, that's all pretty personal. That's why we at Delaney's Grill and The Mick take the time to talk to every diner.

Loved Micks! We definitely would go back. The food was amazing and the service was most excellent. We both would highly recommend Micks to our friends and anyone else who asks. Plan on trying either the steak or pasta next time.
