Outstanding steakhouse. Meticulous attention is paid to how your steak is prepared. Very wide selection of cuts available, many of which are cut in house that day. Great selection of wine to pair with your meal. Attentive service.

This place is a Bloomington institution. Most townies and alumni rave about this place. Honestly, I think the steak is great and my husband and I split the "steak for two" which is the best deal on the menu. However, the atmosphere is appalling. Imagine...More

When in Bloomington, Indiana, the finest steak can be found here. It is on the caliber of Ruth Chris, Morton’s and even the Capital Grill. Yes, it is that good. However, you will take half of it home. Other than the steak, everything else (salad,...More

There are actually quite a few GF options. If the seasoning doesn't affect you, then all of the steaks should be fine, along with the French Pork Chops, Lamb chops, Steak Kabob, and Grilled chicken. Seafood options should be... More
