We took our daughter here for her 13th birthday. We went on a week day, a little early for dinner. There was hardly anyone there when we arrived, but it was packed by the time we left. Service was also very attentive and then dropped off, but then you have to expect that when it gets busy. The only reason why I did not give 5 stars is because they started to rush us when it started to get busy. Some of the servers acted almost frantic, and just put random chunks of meat on our plates when we asked what they were serving. The drink order took so long that we were about to give up and leave. I didn't look at my watch when I ordered, but it took over half an hour and probably closer to 45 minutes for 2 drinks to arrive. All things considered, it was a nice time and our daughter loved it. I would recommend ordering the drinks as soon as you sit down, though.

Our family of five loves this restaurant, but we usually only go on special occasions, and we don't eat lunch if we plan on coming here for dinner ;0 There is so much food to enjoy, and it is all delicious, especially the steak and beef ribs! Service is always amazing too!

OMG!!! This place was so delicious!! They never let you go a few seconds without coming with some type of meat for you to choose! Even the boys (10 year olds) we're enjoying it. I eat Keto so this place was perfect! A must stop if you have the opportunity!

We go here to celebrate. When we take new people here I give the suggestion, decide which meats you really want to try first to ensure you save room. Everything looks and smells delicious. It is easy eat too much before what you really wanted to try comes around. Even the salad bar has so many bright and flavorful dishes the vegetarians in the family do not feel left out. The house cocktail is fabulous tangy lime with a hint of sweetness. They go down way to easy. The wait staff is very vigilent about keeping your plates clean and your water glass filled. Sometimes they can get a bit overwelming but they take a hint pretty fast.

The variety of salad and the array of meat provided such a gastronomic delight. Meat after meat not only filled my craving stomach but the truly delectable taste also fulfilled my savoring palate. Among my favorites were the beef sirloin, the garlic steak, the bacon wrapped fillet mignon and the lamb chops. With undeniably great food respectively accompanied with warm and generous service, it was so worth it and is highly recommended.
