This place was near our hotel, so we popped in for a dinner. What a great steak it was. This in a quiet residential location so the quality and price were much more than adequate.

Amazing food. Not a big variety but the steaks were excellent. Personnel quite helpful and always smiling. The place is really nice, but it was really packed and the tables really close to each other.
