Excellent - especially anything with the Whiskey River Salmon! Easy parking, nice outdoor patio, and mini-golf for a little side activity!

I rarely eat steak (down 70 pounds from 20 years ago) so when I do I want it to be perfect. My previous stake here was superior to my previous steak which was at an extremely expensive high end restaurant.
