We've been eating here every time we visit the area. This time we were shocked when we heard that Rose has sold the place. Everything else still seemed the same but unfortunately we did not have the same wonderful food as before. The same steak...More

I never ever rave about meat, as it all usually tastes the same to me. The steak I had at Joplins was exceptional and I could've had another whole meal because it was so incredibly delicious. What a simple concept and such a pleasant atmosphere....More

Perfect place for steaks. Had the best fillet steak of my life there. The menu is easy: Steaks, chops, fries, salad. And then there are some great desserts: the apple crumble is amazing.

Last night was the second visit for us and all I can say is: the steak is really as good as everyone is saying, the service is excellent and the seventies music and decor, very quirky. The chips were crispy, our little side salad was...More

Limited menu at this establishment, they do steak, steak or steak! I had the fillet steak, cooked medium. I'm not kidding, you could cut it with a piece of paper it was so tender and flavoursome. Great food, great atmosphere and friendly servers. Be sure...More

As it was a warm evening we would loved to have been seated on the patio but we were denied this pleasure due to the restuarant allowing people to smoke there. This is blatantly breaking the law. Also not a non- smoking sign anywhere. That...More
