Do not miss this restaurant. The steaks here are fantastic. They also have a terrific selection of wines.

We had the steak entree that included a baked potato, salad, rolls, bottle of wine. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. The lighting was perfect and the music was fun and not too loud. Our server was very professional.

This place is a diamond in the rough! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. My boyfriend got the ribeye and said it's the best he's ever had. I had chicken skewers that were wonderful and perfectly cooked. We will definitely be hitting this one last time before we leave.
