One of the best meals I’ve had in a while! I had the porkchop and it was perfect. My husband had steak and lobster and it was excellent. It’s a must if you are around! Service was excellent to!

I ordered the rack of lamb, $47. Was served one bone w 3 ounce of meat. Very disappointed, felt ripped off. Don’t order it. Get the elk or a real steak.

Had a good dinner there, but the service was lacking the entire time. Ordered wine, got wine, but no wine glasses. Waiter seemed to disappear and never come back. Food was really good, but for that price I expect the service to be better.

Steak houses as they tend to over price wines and steaks can tend not to be cooked correctly. Yes, most of the prices for a bottle of wine were over priced, so we went with a Spanish Tempranillo (Torres Altos Ibericos Crianza 2014) that was...More
