I had the roast beef and it was tasty. My sister had the crown pork and she liked it very much. This restaurant would be nice for a date night but is casual and comfortable for any occasion.

Although we didn't have reservations we were seated right away which was great for a Friday night (7 PM). We ordered steaks, seafood, and salads and all were well-prepared and tasty. The only negative was that one person ordered a Manhattan and the drink arrived with barely an ounce. He actually complained and was told that's the standard pour. So... More

This place never disappoints. Great atmosphere! Best salad I have ever eaten and delicious prime rib. There were about 15 things on the menu I wanted to try but I love their prime rib.

I had the slow roasted prime rib special, served up with au jus and mild horseradish, broccoli and mashed potatoes. It was quite good! My wife had broiled cod served with a dollop of rich sauce over Israeli... More

Impressive upscale dining at an affordable price. Excellent service and nice parking options next to the restaurant. We had the steak, deviled eggs and fish tacos. Was not disappointed. We then had dessert....OMG....the best chocolate cake I have ever had. We also had the caramel ice cream and it was phenomenal. I would go back for the dessert alone! So... More

Three of us just happened in for lunch one day and we're pleased with our choice. The sushi eaters said their dishes were excellent. The grilled chicken salad was very good too. Our waiter was efficient and friendly with us. We would recommend a stop here.

Went on a business lunch with two others. We had the smoked salmon dip and two sushi rolls to start. Sushi was rolled to perfection and the fresh fish was very good. We all got burgers that were delicious. I had a pimiento cheese bacon burger with shoestring french fries which was one of the daily specials and it was... More

Prime West End location next to Vanderbilt University. Warm, comfy atmosphere with friendly, knowledgeable service. Nice menu with extra daily specials. We had steak tacos and filet kabobs. Both were delicious. The filet kabobs were cooked perfectly ... medium as requested.
