Excellent food. The steaks are unbelievable. I would call this a special occasion place or someplace you want to take family who are visiting from out is town. We will definitely go here again and we have already recommended the restaurant to a few neighbors.

I know tht they are open late; for sure can get seated until 10ish. They book up so I would recommend calling them or going on Open Table to book. You will definitely enjoy the experience.

Tie was not required. Several men in our party just had on button down shirts. And yes, dressy blouse and pants are good. Enjoy!
