Great steakhouse! Ordered the filet mignon cooked at medium+ and it was prepared to perfection. The sides were great, although didn’t feel like they were large enough for 2 people to share. The scalloped potatoes were nice, and the mashed Potato’s fantastic! My only concern:...More

Great food. No waterfront views though. Enjoy going here in winter. The steak is outstanding. So are the sides.

There is street parking only available. I'm not sure if there are designated handicap spots or not. You may want to contact the restaurant for assistance.

I didn't take notice to be honest as we went to just have steak. I'm sure they have non meat items on the menu. I would not recommend their sides though as they were greasy and over cooked.
