As with our many prior visits, service was exceptional and the steaks were very high quality and perfectly cooked. A top notch restaurant!

Took a party of 8 there on busy night. Great service and food. The steaks are HUGE and butter tender. Sides are family style and large enough for the whole table. Smoked trout appetizer was delish also. Salads are enormous so a half is plenty to go along with the meal. Had key lime pie which was yummy. Not a bad thing to say here! Waitstaff were terrific as well. There but not intrusive and very knowledgeable about the menu. Got to go there!

Please be warned, this restaurant is pricey. The service is outstanding, the food quality is superior. If you go, this is a completely a la carte restaurant. The entree is literally a piece of steak with sides ordered separately and served family style. Our waiter this time did not tell us that the sides were also available as half orders. We went on a Wednesday night, around 7:30pm. The restaurant was as busy as one would expect on a Wednesday. We had the petite filet which was absolutely delicious and a nightly special of diver scallops. We also order, mashed potatoes, french fries, creamed spinach and a vegetable of the day offering of petite brussel sprouts with pancetta. All of the sides were delicious and my daughter took the leftovers back to school with her and enjoyed all the vegies as leftovers as well. The deserts were delicious as well. They are offered to you on a cart where you can look and see and decide. We had creme brulee and again a special of the day fruit cobbler with ice cream dessert. The atmosphere is relaxing and the pace of service is just right. I look forward to visiting again.

Had dinner with my daughter and three of her friends. Filet mignon, salmon, and balsamic chicken all prepared perfectly. Sides, tomato salad and brussel sprouts, were also excellent. Two desserts, cheesecake and key lime pie, also right on. House wines (Malbec and Reisling were both very good). Service was also outstanding.

Following the cookie cutter steak house model so prevalent else where seems to have originated here. That is a big statement, but I think its true. They have all the staples here that make a great steak house: Great salads, Hash browns, there own steak sauce and huge steaks cooked perfectly. you don't have to be in Chicago or NYC to do this type of restaurant the right way, it is done in Ithaca.
