Had a great meal here on a Monday night after traveling all day. The owner/manager was quick to suggest an appetizer tray full of yummy meats and cheeses that was excellent. The steaks and chops we had were great. The peppers they served were also excellent. A great meal at a decent price for the quality of the food.

Met friends for dinner and had a a very good dinner. Very noisy, so try to get a table in the back area. Restaurant is large. Salads were very good as was my BBQ ribs. The sea bass was also very good. Service was slow but friendly. Probably should go there more often but so many choices of places to... More

Needed a quick meal on my way to a show at Star Plaza a wondered into this upscale steakhouse. It was packed, but I found a seat at the bar and an efficient and pleasant service team there. After a cocktail, a salad, and an appetizer I was on my way to the show and ready to enjoy a concert.... More

We eat at Gino's a couple of times a year and always enjoy the meals. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is pleasant and overall very clean. Our waitress had the chef make an entrée for dinner we like that is typically only served at lunch. My husband didn't care for what he ordered so they prepared... More

Stopped in for a late dinner. Not only was our server awesome, but our meal and appetizer were amazing. We loved the sample of marinated peppers they brought to try when we were seated. We will definitely return and definitely recommend to stop and eat.

My husband and I stopped in coming out of Chicago on our way home from a Sox game. It was Sunday evening, an hour before closing. Very nice to come in, be welcomed and not rushed through our meal. We were greeted promptly by our waitress who surprised us with marinated refrigerator sweet peppers. Very delicious! Then bread with butter... More

The atmosphere is lovely and you will have a loooooong time to enjoy it. We were on a road trip and wanted a really relaxing nice restaurant. Two hours later we were glad to be out. We think they had to raise the cow for dinner. The 2 filets mignons were flavorful, tender and cooked to perfection, and the garlic... More

We met some coworkers here for dinner. The atmosphere was lovely. The food was great. The peppers they gave us for an appetizer were amazing. I had the beef tenderloin Diane and it was perfection. Their deserts are amazing and meant to be shared. Our server was wonderful and very attentive. If you are in Merrillville I highly suggest you... More

I was very surprised. Their lunch was awesome and my expectation was that they would be expensive and weak on service. Just the opposite was true. They get five stars all around. For being just off of US-30 they are a class joint.

This has been one of our family favorite fine dining with a casual atmosphere restaurants for many years. We've never had a meal that wasn't memorable from appetizers to desserts at the restaurant.
