The food selection is great, the bar and bartenders are the best in the business! They have a good wine selection to go with the beef or seafood they serve, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu!

One of my best meals ever, and I’ve eaten plenty! My companion had scallops that were also fine though we also salivated over the ribeye and tenderloin served at a neighboring table! Truly fine dining in an intimate restaurant.

I have to be honest and say that I have not been ecstatic about any steak in Nashville or Franklin yet. Coming from NY maybe I'm asking too much?
