The staff was friendly but steaks only ok. Steak was overcooked and thin for prices paid for that meal. The bright spot of the night was their salad bar. It has just about anything you could possibly want on a salad available on that bar.

Restaurant opens at 5, but was able to walk in and wait at 4:30. Large crowd began to show up and it was the middle of the week. We were seated right at 5. Food delicious..the salad bar was excellent!

My wife and I went here under a recommendation from a friend. The service was outstanding as well as the salad and stuffed potatoe. But when it came to the steak it was blaaa at best. We had steak two days earlier at another restaurant and it blew this one out of the water at half the cost. Being its... More

We were here on Nov. 23rd which seemed to be the time of year when everyone has a cough/cold. People were coughing in their hands and picking up the reusable menus. Glen/Glenn? was the steak peddler. We watched as he showed the other tables the ribeye and NY strip steaks that he cut to the # of ounces you ordered.... More

Absolutely fantastic food, service, and friendly too. A little high priced but well worth it if you want a great place to eat. Call ahead seating goes very quickly.

My husband and I ate here over 12 years ago and had a wonderfully romantic visit. I can definitely say that our visit this trip was just ordinary and a little boring. They have a nice salad bar but nothing spectacular. The fried pickle appetizer was ok but nothing I would order again. The restaurant is most known for its... More

Wife and I went for our anniversary, once again, they did not disappoint. Prime rib was juicy and tender. Salad bar is out of this world. Call an hour before they open to make reservation and ask for a table by the river. You will not be disappointed . Dinner is pricey though. For wife and I, we spent around... More

I truly enjoy this restaurant and have been many times. It's worth waiting for a window seat -- go to the upstairs bar and have a drink while you wait. You might get lucky and have a window table open up up there!
