Wonderful steak house. Consistently good, albiet a bit expensive. The service is friendly and attentive without being obnoxious. The steak is high quality and the sides are good and plentiful.

The steaks and all the other sides were great! I ordered steak cooked at medium well and the steak was tender, but still cooked to my liking! Service at times was on the slow side, but cooking good food fresh will take time. You cannot be in a hurry at this restaurant. There were around 24 of us for lunch... More

Overpriced, overbuttered, overseasoned, and uninspired. If you want to overpay for a meal - there are far better places within a short ride. Definitely a declining classic. Great location - but for excellent food at this price or better you can do MUCH better.
