Brisket was dry, steak was mediocre, not sure why this place has such a great reputation. The food and menu really was lacking. In my opinion.

The service was terrible constantly had empty drinks & the nachos were way to salty. Nice atmosphere but that's about it.

Had the brisket and rib combo. Ribs weren't to my liking but the brisket was great. Also had the onion rings that were billed as billings best and the weren't wrong. Karla was our friendly server who did a great job. Well done

A unique historic downtown building. Great staff. Food was excellent but three steak prices were ridiculous. We had cattle breeders from Montana, Pennsylvania, New York and South Dakota in the group. None of us found the prices acceptable. I would eat here again but I'll never try the steak at those prices.

This dinner was amazing! Bartender and waitstaff were friendly and informative. This was one of the best steaks we have ever had!! We also had shrimp wontons and ahi tuna at the bar before dinner - delicious! (Watch out for the hot mustard!)

I love this restaurant's interior, location and patio, but the food is never that great in my experience. If you go, the best, most consistent thing I've had there is the barbecue.

I was really excited to see this turn of the century restaurant. I still haven't! The lounge was open but not the restaurant, we peeked inside but didn't see anything that stood out. The food was ok but not great. I had beer cheese soup, my suggestion would be to add some beer and turn down the heat so it... More

This is a very expensive restaurant for what you get. I ordered fried shrimp with mashed potatoes and a salad. She brought my salad but no ranch dressing. I told her and she never brought it. She came back and said they were out of mash potatoes, so I told her french fries with catsup and I needed ranch dressing.... More
