Good quality food at a reasonable price. Nothing out of the ordinary but just good food and good service. Will head back next time in town to check steaks out.

Parties of five or less do not need reservations...that also means you get blessed with waiting while many parties come in and get seated after you have arrived. We decided it might be quicker to sit at the bar. After almost 10min of no acknowledgement from the staff, a bartender came to take our drink order. She explained a few... More

I really enjoyed this place. The family that runs it are so friendly and the food and drinks very good. I had a steak that was cooked perfectly and they really treated us well. I will go back in the future for sure just because the family was so nice and they made me feel like family.

The Flame has been around forever, and for good reason. Great steaks with a family atmosphere and excellent service. My first experience here was over 20 years ago, and not much has changed since. And that is a good thing. Steaks are always cooked to order and are fair priced. Service is friendly and will remember your name after only... More

Great Meal at a great place! The service was friendly and efficient for a group of 15 without a reservation, asked for separate checks it wasn't even an issue!
