We had filet mignon and flat iron steak which they were both excellent. We also had cheesecake and creme brulee for dessert. These were also excellent. We received outstanding service. Will go back next time we are in the area.

Had a cheeseburger at the bar on cheeseburger night! It really was awesome! You have to get the bacon on the burger because it truly is an experience!

I had an excellent steak (rib-eye) and enjoyed going through the wine list to finally settle on a Hitching Post branded bottling which was also excellent. Everything else we had was very, very average. The meals are pretty much all-inclusive (salad, soup, sides, etc.) but...More
