Experience the ambiance of the Victorian Old West as we serve you an array of eclectic culinary specialties.

When preparing the Mahogany Grille menu, our award-winning staff gives special focus to farm-fresh recipes that represent new styles with old west flavors. We hand-cut our steaks in our butcher shop, carefully select our foods, and incorporate products by local growers when available creating a mosaic of tastes and textures.

We take pride in being well-versed in fine wine and spirits. Complimented with our aromatic food, our wines and spirits make quite a delicious impression.

    Fantastic experience celebrating my mother's 85th birthday at a hotel where she honeymooned 59 years ago! Absolutely THE BEST elk tenderloin I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy so kudos to the chef for that! Calamari was fantastic as well. Just a very first class experience over all and I am so grateful. Thank you!

    Great Manhattans, good service, price is a little high. Had red trout with crawfish sauce which was superb and good price of $25. Husband had pepper steak and it was overcooked and not worth the $48 cost.

    This restaurant is in the historic Strater Hotel. The portions for our main entrees weren't overly large, but the sides were large enough to share. This place is all about ambiance. Food was average, but the wait staff was very friendly and attentive.

    Great location in the Statler Hotel, old time western decor, very good food and service. Our server, Rachel, was very attentive, knew the menu and had sampled most of the items. She suggested the Elk tenderloin and it was excellent, attractively plated and really prepared medium rare. The Chicken Saltimbocca was very good and the shared Saffron Risotto was perfect.

    The ribeye was good… at $60 is should be. The blue cornbread was awful - so dry! Desserts were just okay. The bread pudding was not good. For a $200 meal I expected better food and service.

    Traveling through and wanted a nice dinner at this fabulous old hotel. Another event was happening so our food was slow coming out. Ok but don’t ignore us! Drop off dishes and disappear. Asked for decaf tea and brought me black tea after we had finished eating. Food just okay. I do not think I got the steak I ordered. It was over salted/seasoned- maybe to cover the quality up? The soup was flavorless and the potatoes were heavy with garlic. Patient gone. Just paid bill and left.

    Very good service, server was very attentive,. They were out of the ribeye, which is what we had gone for. The calamari appetizer lacked flavor and was very chewy did not finish. The blue cornbread was very good the salad was good with the raspberry dressing. The brussels sprouts war season nicely but very tough and Chewy, did not finish.

    Great menu with gluten free options. Portions are large: appetizer (cornbread), we split a salad and it was like a normal portion for each of us. Entree's were la' carte so we ordered the risotto which enough for 4 people. Overall, great food and atmosphere is an historic hotel.

    Our server seemed like he had never waited tables before, got our orders wrong but never came back to check on us until it was time to pay, then he was gone with our cards for 30 minutes. My eggs over easy didn’t even have yolks in them. It was bizarre.

    First time visit and would not recommend. Meat was just meh, for cost I expected amazing flavors and texture. Pasta shade was good, should have just ordered that. First young man that helped was very friendly and went above expectations in offering a version of a cocktail and was very nice. Left underwhelmed and hungry after dropping almost $100.
