The hostess and wait staff are friendly, and the service is quick. The restaurant has a nice bar with plenty of seating, and the dining room is a good mix of booths and tables, which can accommodate various sizes groups. The open kitchen design means you get to see the cooks preparing the food and hear them getting out the orders. I had the portobello sandwich with fruit salad for dinner. My son got the Cesar salad with chicken. We both got the lemonade which is very good and they offered complimentary refills, which was nice. My son really liked the salad. The dressing is delicious, the croutons we're crispy with a slight spice, and the chicken was juicy and flavorful. This is the second time I've gotten this sandwich and it is good but not great, and definitely not worth the $13 they charge for it. The bread of the sandwich was over toasted and much more than the filling within, so the second half I removed the bottom slice, and ate the top and filling with utensils, which helped. The fruit salad was good and had a mix of pineapple, melon, grapes and strangely green apples. Some of the grapes were mushy so I didn't eat them. I guess, though, if you're going to a restaurant that specializes in grilled meat plates, you should go with a meat dish. Next time I'll get something with chicken.

Man, has this place gone downhill. I hadn't been here in a few years, but I remembered the food being pricey yet delicious. I went back earlier this week. The prices have now gotten insane, the portions are as small as ever, and the food is decidedly mediocre. I gave 2 stars because service was still really good, but I won't be back. $60 after tip for 2 smaller than average entrees that taste like they were heated up in the microwave, no cocktails, and no desert? No thanks.

Consistently delicious burgers. Host stand can be a little odd? I think honestly it's just the effect of like 4 bored people sitting in the same spot all day. The waiters I've had here have literally always been excellent. Easily 10 visits and I've never had bad food. Around winter time the fires are super cozy and wonderful.

Excellent food. The sirloin was cooked to perfection. I usually like to tweak my steaks to my liking once they get to the table but there was nothing this steak needed except to slide into my mouth. They have a really good drinks menu as well. Our server Riley was a joy! The building was beautiful. We have been wanting to go and this was the first chance we had. We were not even a little bit disappointed. We Will go back. Sorry about the picture....we demolished that dinner!!

Really good food, everyone enjoyed their meals. Tenderloin salad was fantastic, beef cooked as expected. Grilled Ckn Breast was very flavorful and moist - delicious. Service was also good. No complaints.

I came close to not ordering the prime rib based on reviews I read. It is best to experience for yourself. There are nay-Sayers out there. I took the "leap of faith". Faith prevail. Wonderful experience all the way around. Eat with a party of 7. No complaints from anyone. The waiter, actually two other helpers too were exceptional. In laymen terms "Off the Chain.

We had the best time! It's my sisters birthday and we were celebrating. My sister accidentally spilled water all over the table and booth and a passing server immediately noticed and helped clean it up. He even made a joke to clear air and help us relax. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed our time there. I especially want to thank our waiter Kristie. She was super sweet and looked after us.

Had a birthday dinner and you could not ask for better service from our two servers. The restaurant was as usual very clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was outstanding, steaks cooked to perfection, appetizers were absolutely luscious. I cant begin to say how good their salads are. All around an excellent place for an absolute great dining experience.

The food is always good.. I set near the window, the floor was dirty and must have been 4 old cloth napkins left on the floor for some time. I enjoy this place, it just need some clean attention.

This is a wonderful place to go for dinner with your family. While it's not probably known for being a place to bring kids, they do have a kids menu, and big booths that are good for kids. It's a decent size and relatively noisy so it's ok if kids get a little loud :) Their loaded baked potatoes are so good and their steamed broccoli is seasoned wonderfully. I love their bread and have not ever had anything I do not like. Our waiters name was Larry and he was great! He has been a waiter at the restaurant for almost 10 years. Ask for Larry if you go!
