This is an old style steak house, reminding you of a 70- 80's restaurant. Restaurant is fairly close to several hotels which is good for travelers. If y0u are in a mood for a good steak check this place out.

This is one of the priciest restaurants around Beckley, but the food is really good, with great view and atmosphere and excellent service.

I would especially reserve a table on a weekend and if I had a large party. However, during the week days you don't really need one. Hope this is of assistance.
