I re-visited. Nothing has changed with the ambiance. Bone in Bison is still outstanding. It is a little pricey, but outstanding. Wear casual clothes, don't expect classy, but hang on for a great steak.

For the price, this place isn’t worth it. It’s a great place for a drink. Lots of energy and a good crowd but the food does not match the price. There are by far a lot better places.
