Lovely: We had a great experience here. We ordered 3 different steaks and all of them were great. I like my done medium rare and it was done to perfection. The pepper sauce was also quite delicious. the side orders were perfect, too. Great ambiance, good service, friendly staff.

Exquisite: My first visit was with a group of nine out of town visitors who universally loved the food and atmosphere. They were so impressed with the service that they conveyed their appreciation to the manager before leaving. <br/><br/>For my part, I thoroughly enjoyed the beef, bison and elk carpaccio and the perfectly cooked rib eye steak. This is a top notch steak house and the pricing reflects this. Highly recomended.
