A good mid-range restaurant with great improvements over the years. Cattle Barron famously serves the well known "Carpetbagger" steaks, grilled to perfection. Nice restaurant for Dinner.

I really love the food here and have been here a good couple of times. But recently I was a bit upset you guys didn't serve the little pieces of steak and bread. That really set up the entire meal and it's really unfortunate you guys don't serve it anymore. Please start again, it was amazing.
