We have heard great reviews about this restaurant however we were disappointed. Atmosphere is nice and very casual. Servers very friendly. We felt for the prices we paid the food should be exceptional. We felt the taste was ordinary. Since it was my husbands birthday felt we would splurge. We had a sausage stuffed mushrooms from the special of the... More

OMG died and went to pork chop heaven. I'm lost for words and that never happens. Owner Dave Janicki came buy table 3... More

So we went to dinner with the in laws expecting to have a lovely dinner based on reviews and friends suggestions. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Overpriced...the best steak places in Chicago cost way less and have higher quality food. There were 4 of us and there was something wrong in each meal. I ordered the "special" which was a bacon wrapped filet... More

We came here during a visit with family. We live in Kansas City, but have family in Buffalo. Without a doubt, Kennedy's Cove has the BEST steak you will ever eat!! Melt in your mouth fabulous. Can't say enough! Do yourself a favor and follow with the Creme Brulee. If you visit Buffalo without visiting this place, you have failed.

Small restaurant, always busy, no reservations, ambiance-naaah, but it makes for certainly in ur dinner. Their beef is blackened seasoned, tender, mouth watering and flavorful served on a long, garlic toast. You get a choice of salad or soup (unheard of that these days) and a huge portion of potatoes. Not cheap nor will it break the bank, but worth... More

Neither of us were impressed with the food. Hidden fees for different choices given us. I have spent way less for MUCH more! In both quality and service alike. For a place of similar prices, and much better food and service, I would recommend Russell's on Transit Rd. At least the atmosphere will come closer to matching the price! In... More

We went here to celebrate a birthday with some family members. After hearing many good things we figured we had to try it out! First off, the place is really small so if it had been busy we probably would've had to wait a while for a table, fortunately it was not at the time we arrived. Our waitress was... More

We came here with friends on a Sun evening. The restaurant is small and does not take reservations but it is worth the wait at the bar for a table. The food is marvelous...with two caveats. The onion soup was salty and the seafood bisque was bland and flavorless. The filet mignon however was fork tender yet juicy with a... More
