I really like the atmosphere of this old building. The staff was top notch and our waiter was great. The shrimp cocktail was good especially if like A LOT of horseradish. I got the ribeye, it was cooked to perfection but it lacked flavor. Seemed to be no seasoning at all. Others at my table felt the same. The sides... More

The food is very good. Did not have to wait to long. I think that the prices were a bit much. Service was good. Would definitely recommend.

We were very hungry and tired from driving on our trip. We stayed at the Omni around the corner. We felt bad because we didn't think we were dressed with the right attire, we were wrong. They welcomed us, the hostess said you have to try the Shrimp Cocktail, that's what they are known for besides the great steak, I... More

He pronounced the 14 ounce ribeye to be a " once in... More

Went for dinner to try something different than our usual steak haunts. Cool atmosphere. Steaks are cooked very fast and hot to the point that my med rare plus steak was pretty charred on the outside. If you like black and blue...this may be place for you. It didn't seem like the strip had much flavor. Shrimp cocktail was good.... More

We were in town for the Steelers/Colts Thanksgiving game so we had our Thanksgiving supper here the night before. We had a reservation and our table was ready when we arrived. We started off with the shrimp cocktail which was excellent. I had the chicken which had a great seasoning and it was cooked perfectly. My husband and son had... More

Had dinner in the 1933 lounge at the bar. Filet was fantastic.....one of the best steaks I've eaten in a restaurant. Their shrimp cocktail is great...the cocktail sauce is quite hot. Great selection of bourbon choices. They have their own barrel selections of Four Roses...five choices in all...had my favorite mashbill. Friendly atmosphere. Will definitely visit here again on my... More

The old fashioned was more of a Manhattan. NY Strip had a worm-looking piece of grissle sticking out of the cut side which killed the appetite. The knives weren't cutting the meat. The baked potato was not done and the creme brulé was cold. After bringing the issues to manager, we were comped a meal but we will not return... More

I heard some great things about this steakhouse and they are true. I went here with 5 business colleagues and we all loved this place. The best server ever is Jason White and is helping hand Gisselle. They took super great care of us. First of all you have to try the shrimp cocktail. The horseradish is super fresh and... More
