Visited KC on business and just HAD to try a steakhouse. Excellent prime rib, decent wine selection, very good service. Deviled egg appetizer was also worth trying. Would have been better with a more extensive selection of scotch.

We had a great evening. We had the KC strip and filet mignon. Both were perfect. Ceasar Salade has lots of garlic, which we liked a lot. The carrot cake is to die for! Try the red wines by the glass. All good!

Everything is delicious, the service is impeccable, the atmosphere is refined but not stuffy. The prime rib melts in your mouth and the baked potato is to die for. Ribs, carrot cake....it's all good!

Picked this wonderful place because of the smell outside. The flavor didn't disappoint. I ordered a filet and it was mouthwatering. And it was my birthday, so I ordered a carrot cake. It was wonderful. I loved the frosting on the cake. Nice sweet and decadent.

A very popular spot in Overland Park, be prepared to wait a bit - the wait will be worth it however, as the restaurant offers daily specials that will keep you coming back for more. While our friends order a (fish) special, we chose to stay with the standards (prime rib and another fish dish). Depending on your appetite, you... More

Stopped in on a week night with a co-worker while in the area for business. We were seated after about 5 minutes, but it looked like a longer wait by the time we were leaving. We started off with a Deviled egg app which was Delicious! We both had dinner salads which were great too! The service was good, the... More

We are from the Overland Park area and for years we have really enjoyed this restaurant on special occasions. Our favorite is the prime rib. They have great salads as well. Occasionally we try different dishes and they are great as well. Definitely one of the best places in Southern Johnson county.

Thank Clayton E
