Must have caught them on an off night. My strip steak was short of 14-ounces. The potato cake was just mashed potatoes with bacon bits and chives. The vegetable (carrot) was lousy. A friend's filet and baked potato were served cold. My wife said her...More

This was just a really poor experience. When we sat down, the first thing my guest said was "I like the feel of this place" but then an hour minutes later, after an overloaded server caused us to wait for drinks.....and then appetizer.....and then salads......and...More

We stop for coffee and their chocolate cake. You get a huge slice of layered chocolate cake that is dense, chocolaty and yummy. They have good appetizers and entrees as well as a full bar but that cake keeps calling you back!

The waitress was very attentive & the meal was well paced. They even gave my mom a free dessert for her 90th birthday! We had ribs & they were tender but probably over-priced for the cut (spare ribs, not baby back). It is expensive but...More

Be careful not to confuse Axel's with Axel's Bonfire. The menu's between the two are much different. Axel's is higher priced. The restaunt was beautiful. The high back booths were very nice. The food was expensive but good.
