An older customer base on a weekend so a reserved atmosphere. Has the potential to be a great sports destination for great steak. Portions are large and price is $$$+. Not a kids destination.

This is the perfect place to have dinner before a Kraken game. Walk across the parking lot to catch light rail to the Monorail. It's seamless. Menu has everything you would expect from a steak house, with fresh fish and excellent salads. We also meet our work clients for lunches here. Central location. Proof of vaccination required, which honestly made me feel safer going out. Top notch service every time.

Very good review to meet friends and eat. There are several kinds of foods that can be ordered as preferred, in size and details of the various dishes. The place was not unreasonably loud and people were seated safely distant from each other. The parking near the restaurant is also excellent and open. Very good options.

Blackened halibut and petite filet mignon both excellent, as were the sides. Service was a little slow, as it seems to be everywhere these days. Not too crowded at 5:30 pm on a Tuesday. Covid protocols in place. Very enjoyable.

It was a good experience. Quiet and the server was busy, but would bend with any special requests. Knowledgeable about the wines, but willing to get someone that might know more on any that he wasn’t sure of.

We had the fish and chips and the prawns and chips. The fish was quite good but the prawns were overcooked (too long in the deep fryer). Our server did a good job which helped the experience. The two ladies in the next booth were loud and obnoxious which really detracted from our enjoyment. Overall I think that given what this establishment charges that the overall quality should be a little better than what we go. I doubt that we'll be back again.

Food was tasty and served warm. Overall a good experience.

I’m having trouble signing up for the rewards program so we didn’t get credit for that meal.

My sis-in-law and I have lunch here once a month and have never had a less than great experience. Yesterday was no exception. The hostess was pleasant and efficient and out waitress was wonderful. I wish I could remember her name because we loved her. The food, as always, was excellent.

This place has THE BEST cheesy bread on the planet! We highly recommend ordering it! We only gave 4 stars for the food because the steak was just ok- it could have used more seasoning. Overall a great place to get a meal.

The food was great, as were the cocktails. The restaurant was very accommodating for our child, with a good kids’ menu. Our waitress, Nicole, was very attentive to our needs, making sure that our child got a nice cold drink and doing a very good job on recommendations on cocktails. A very good and unique feature on this restaurant is the cocktails to go for 2. Definitely worth trying!

The open face crab and artichoke sandwich had problems: too tough to cut readily with a steak knife; crab tasted very fishy. Overall disappointing compared to the past.
