Atmosphere is nice, and the service is good. Their beef is cooked the way you want it, and it tastes great.

I was hoping for more, but they didn't deliver. The steaks we OK, the side OK, the service was friendly, but spotty, so just OK. Overall this was just OK. There are too many other places to try so I wouldn't go back

We had a great dinner at the restaurant and especially enjoyed the beans served with the steaks. They were a little spicy and delicious. The staff was friendly and efficient.

The staff was so nice that we felt like at home eating with our relatives. The portions are big also for beverages (including beer and drinks). Great option. Recommend it.
