I'm what you might call a "regular" here coming 3-4 times a month. I love this place and find the food, staff and service to be impeccable. If you want an authentic experience where the wait staff are cordial and service-oriented, the bartenders get to...More

The ambience is very charming, service great, but their steak just doesn't taste or feel good. My friends LOVED it, but I thought it was vile.

We were there for graduation dinner and were given a set menu for the evening. Maybe that was the problem but the steak I had was not worth the price. I've had better steak at Long Horn's. Additionally, the other entrees, pasta and the salmon...More
