Just finished dinner consisting of 8 Oz filet, charcoaled shrimp, salad and baked sweet potato. The meal and service were both excellent. The steak was tender and flavorful, as was the shrimp. I would definitely recommend and I will be back. If I had to...More

Well I ordered the largest cut of prime rib....35.00 for 20 oz. slab. Well first I saw that it had way too much fat in it for the price. But that aside...there was not flavor...and its not just me. My honey said the same thing!

Enjoyed 12oz New York Strip, Broccoli casserole and baked sweet potato. Steak was very tasty and cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the triple double chocolate cake and ice cream. A great place for steak when visiting Knoxville. Highly recommend a meal here.

Not only is this place expensive, but they lack the knowledge of how to cook a steak. My steak came out gray instead of having a good grill char on it. If I am paying $40 for a steak, at least it could be cooked...More

This is not the best or worst steak you will ever eat. It's pretty much average. Service was pretty good. This is pretty much old school Knoxville though and kind of fun to visit now and then.

I have been here a few times and always enjoy my meal. This is an old Knoxville steakhouse with good steaks. It is rustic but with good food. The service is very good. They only have beer but allow liquor and wine to be brought...More

We came with a group of five after a stress filled day, needing some time to have a nice meal in quiet surroundings and found just what we needed here. Although the menu choices are on the expensive side, everyone was pleased with their meals....More

I've eaten at many steakhouses and found some items different here. Try the home potatoes if you like garlic and butter with lots of black pepper. I had a 32oz grilled prime rib. Was cooked perfectly to medium rare , but lacked some taste. Garlic...More
