“Awesome food”
Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

Yes we waited 2 hours for a table of 10 on a Saturday night, but well worth the wait. Upon arriving we were told 1 1/2 to 2 hour wait. They were accurate. Drinks at the bar were great and had samples of pizza while waiting. Owner and chef came around to ask how everything was, more than once. My husband is particular about his food and he enjoyed it greatly and stated "better than Ruth Chris!!". Definitely going back

“WONDERFUL FOOD!”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

This is one of Lake Charles' better places to eat, especially for steak. The steaks will just melt in your mouth, they are so fabulously tender. There's also a choice of four sauces to go along with them, all good. The salad are great, the pizzas and calzones are delicious! Good selections of beer and wine, it's all wonderful!

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

This former DeAngelos restaurant is now an independent. There are several menu items that DeAngelos lovers will recognize, but we were told there will be significant changes to the menu this year. Waiter was enthusiastic about the upcoming changes. The food was excellent and our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was clean and had a nice atmosphere. Great place to meet friends and share a meal.

“Delicious.”
Reviewed 9 November 2012 via mobile

This is a favorite local restaurant. Cozy atmosphere with a visible kitchen, it is a great place to go for drinks or dinner. The flash fried oyster appetizer is amazing. Some of the best steak dinners have been had here, too, Entrees are best topped off with their sauces. I've never been disappointed.
