Me and my husband thought we would try this place again after years. First the hostess was not very happy looking. Once seated it took a long time for a waitress to come by and they were not busy. Food wasnt our taste i guess..but we ordered salads, shrimp, mac and cheese bites, and steaks. Both of our steaks were... More

My wife and I went on New Years for steak. We have visited this location many times and found the food to be terrific. Last night, my wife had a filet which she said was tender and melt in your mouth delicious. I had a porterhouse cooked medium rare, and it was tougher than the shoe I was wearing. Very... More

Steaks are decent but overpriced. Their food is ok but everything seems to be cooked from frozen and overseasoned. Service is friendly and helpful and the staff is always smiling when we are there. I just can't justify spending steakhouse prices on less than steakhouse-quality food. There are better, locally owned, places nearby where you can get good food cooked... More

This used to be an excellent place for steaks and other food. The quality has really gone down. Steak was thin and tasteless. Not a very good experience.

Service was good. Lunch was good but not excellent. Was a quick chain after church when we had other obligations in the afternoon.

Good service and atmosphere. A little pricey on some items, but quality of meals were good. The upgrade to asparagus with my meal was well worth it!

Whitney M. Provided very good service to three of us. I had the 22 oz ribeye, my wife the smaller one and my daughter a half rack of ribs. Everything was tender and well prepared. The meal came with choice of potatoes and one side. We had the baked sweet potato and the caesar salad. The atmosphere was cordial and... More

Another multi location theme restaurant where the Steak House motif is Australian. It's basically pub food with a few steaks, chops, and lamb chops rounding out the menu. Last year they opened for lunch in many locations including the State Street one. A good choice for family dining lunch or dinner. Neither cheap nor expensive, but there is something on... More

We met here for a family birthday party. From the start the service was phenomenal. We were waiting for one family member but they treated us beautifully. The blooming onion was delicious. My steak--a 6 Oz. sirloin-- was really good but other family members were not as happy with their tough steaks. It was a good experience although the food... More
