“Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Excellent food and dining experience. Best steakhouse around. Very pricey!!! Wine, low lighting, romantic, and warm.

“Disappointed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

Always enjoy good steaks in the past but tonight was awful...beef tips & ribeye were very tough and sides were cold...not sure if new management or what but the quality of food was very poor...also husband did not like the cheap paper napkins versus the nice white cloth napkins we had on prior visits!

Good food without driving to Charlotte. Normally go for the New Orleans Broil. The wings are excellent for an appetizer.

“Special occasion - bad meal!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

Don't know what's happened to this restaurant!
Nine of us were celebrating a special event last night and made reservations at Yadkin Valley, which used to be one of the best restaurants around. We arrived on time, our table was set up and our waiter was efficient and pleasant and his service was good. However that was where the "good" ended . . . the house ribeye was only 3/8" - 1/2" thick and tough. I had ordered my ribeye rare and it was medium, so I returned it; the second one came to me medium rare. The last time we were there that steak was closer to 1" thick, very flavorful and tender. Our son-in-law ordered the 32 oz. ribeye (that was very good last time), and when it came it had been butterflied and overcooked. Our friend ordered the chicken and it was the size of a sandwich patty. Someone else's Filet Mignon was gristly and tough. Salads were made with iceburg and no mixed greens. Out of nine people in our party, only one was happy with her meal - her prime rib was a nice-sized cut and cooked perfectly.
I don't know what has happened but this 5-star establishment has lowered itself to a 1 - 2 star restaurant. Other chain restaurants in the area are better quality and better value. We won't be going back until we either hear or read some consecutive good reviews.
It's a shame things have gone bad .....

“What!s happened to this place??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

Food quality and atmosphere is nothing like it use to be but prices are still high. We use to look forward to going here but most likely won't be going back. It use to be worth the 30-40 minute drive but not now. Food was not prepared to requests.
