Go here only if you enjoy the smell of mildew and tough stringy bland steak. This place is way over priced for the cheap cuts of meat it serves. The filet was ordered medium; although it was cooked medium the out side was burnt. The charred meat was the only flavor this steak possessed. The ribeye was also ordered medium. However, it was served well to medium well, charred on the outside and tough as boot leather. When we apprised the waitress about the over cooked steak she agreed and stated she would inform management. She returned 10-15 minutes later to inform us half that the price of the steak would be taken off the bill. This steak was inedible. We asked for a new steak be prepared as we had specified. When the steak was finished the manager/owner requested we cut the steak, that was now a to go order, at the front. She then preceded to loudly state how we were "throwing a fit", I guess asking for what you ordered is fit throwing. The "very professional owner" then told us to enjoy our free steak. In what universe is a meal free when you pay full price? I don't know but she must come from that planet. She also stated she never wanted us to come back to her establishment, referred to us as "you people" and invited us to bash the restaurant. The new steak was just as tough as the first. We fed this disgusting piece of meat to our 78 lb dog. It took her 15-20 minutes to chew through this "high quality" piece of "choice sirloin".

The entry smelled like mildew. I ordered the ribeye medium. When i cut into the steak it had a slight bit if pink in the center and was devoid of flavor except the burnt taste of charred meat. I showed the waitress and she agreed it was overcooked. After waiting for what felt like forever the waitress came back and said they would take off half. I told her i could not eat this and asked to have a new steak cooked the way i asked in the first place. Eventually we were told the steak was up front waiting for us to leave. The "owner" of the establishment began to bad mouth me like a little kid and claimed i should be happy because i got a "free" steak. Not sure how that works since i paid full price for my meal. If you are looking for a good steak you would have better luck ordering the sirloin burger from McDonalds.

I'd like this review removed. The person "Coachcash" that wrote the review works for my competitor and had written similar things on FB, etc. The review is fraudulent and bogus.
Kindest Regards,

We took a taxi to this restaurant and had a fantastic evening! Staff treated us like we were locals and had been guest there before.
