A throwback joint, “where everybody knows your name.” Good food. Nice cocktail pours. Open pit charcoal cooking. Great overall vibe.

A nice restaurant to get a great meal. I had the fried shrimp with the garlic mashed potatoes. A very generous serving. Large shrimp. Red skin potatos mashed. Very flavorful. I would definitely visit again. Nice staff! Moderately priced.

Group of 9; great service, great steaks and great ambiance. My first time to the steak pit and it did not disappoint. It’s a little pricey but the size of the entree was significant. You get what you pay for!

My wife and I went to this restaurant for a romantic dinner. Our experience was great. The steaks were cooked perfectly to order. I ordered the 32 oz Porterhouse and it was amazing. I would recommend this cut, even if you don't plan to finish it all.

This locally owned restaurant located just off Grand Ave. is the perfect place to go for an intimate dinner, great food and service or just to hang with your friends at the large bar. The food is superb and the staff from the owners down couldn't be any nicer! We visit this restaurant frequently for libations and to hang with our friends! Don't just read it, go check it out!
