Old reliable steak house. You can always depend on a good meal at this place. It has been in the same spot for years.

Never been to Knight Cap and always heard it was good and known for its lobster bisque. The place was under staffed and our waitress was not very familiar with the menu or the drinks. We were finally offered a place to hang our coats....More

I dined here with a business colleague. I was a bit surprised how small the dining area was when we walked in and the decor was kind of dated (and I was a little worried that there was only one other table occupied). We were...More

My husband and I visited this establishment for our 36th anniversary. It is small and intimate, the lighting subdued, creating a relaxed atmosphere. We found it absolutely delightful! The owner, Mr. Farhat, showed an interest in the customers and the waitstaff was attentive. And most...More

Of course, if you don't like quirky and old-fashioned, you won't like this place. But it is so cute! Old waiters, old decor, old-style but excellent food. Love the intimate environment. A memorable special occasion place. If you are not going for steak, don't bother...More
