Even though it's considered a steakhouse, their bloomin' burger was cooked perfectly and absolutely scrumptious. Seated upon arrival by the hostess and our server was efficient and friendly. The sweet potato and side of broccoli were prepared just the way they should be. Parking is behind the restaurant and a bit tricky if you are turning off of Newport Blvd.
Don't believe the negative reviews and give them a try.

Two of us had dinner on a Friday night. One ordered a blue cheese-pecan chopped salad. It was served with no blue cheese and no pecans - but the waitress (unfailingly polite) brought little bowls of each to add ourselves. When we said the greens were not at all “chopped” we were informed “That’s how we do it here” - Next came a medium steak that was the color of old brown shoe leather, compact and tough. The server left the baked potato and took back the steak. 20 min. later a new piece of meat and another (unnecessary) potato were served; this time it was fine. Restaurant was 80% empty - not a busy night. Service was good but kitchen was sloppy and food looked “thrown on the plates”. Never again. There are too many better places around.

Terrible service. They gave me a wet napkin and I had to request a dry one. Apparently you have to ask for bread. They don’t offer it to you. They told me that filet and lobster only came with a potato or a side when the menu clearly stated you got both. Then the manager said it was a mistake but she would “honor” it this time. Very disappointing to be treated this way especially after ordering three steak and lobster meals.

I've been there three times and try salmon BBQ and steak with endless shrimps. Everything was perfect

The food is always good, but tonight our server was excellent, big shout out to Jameson.
Started out with the coconut shrimp app followed with the delicious bread and a chopped salad, such a treat. Moved onto the sirloin grilled to a perfect medium and side was a baked sweet potato. I paired with 3 thieves chardonnay. Yum Yum
