An upscale dining venue. Well trained, professional staff never missed a beat. The food is amazing, one of the best filet mignon I have ever tasted. If in the area it is worth the trip.

You cannot beat the filet here. It's pure perfection! Great wine, typical steak sides like mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Great Creme brûlée.

They really don't have a children's menu. However, they have many delicious non-steak options (the salmon is amazing) and the serving sizes are generous enough that a child could share any entree.
