If you want a taste of the local upper middle class milieu in Pasadena, drop in for a cocktail, and stay for dinner. More comfortable than big sister restaurant--the Arroyo--on Arroyo Seco, but just as good. I'll apologize for eating red meat once in a while, but there is where I like to do it

Great restaurant in Pasadena; with a large varied menu. Active bar scene a little small, but fun. Probably the best home mad potato chips ever. Great place for lunch or dinner.

Ran in to a guy at Bobs steakhouse in Grapevine TX. Told me this was the place. I have to agree. Meat loaf is one of the specialties and nicely priced for a white table cloth Resturant. But being the hard core carnivore from Fort Worth TX that I am the 40 day dry aged prime New York had my attention first. Caesar slade has very light dressing and the corn bread croutons make it. This is a fine steak house I WILL return!

We like the grill, you over look the kitchen and are up close to all the action. You can't go wrong with pretty much any thing on the menu, from homemade potato chips, to Rib-eye, pot roast, mash potato's, fresh fish, homemade pot pies and macaroni and cheese.
