We were not disappointed in the size or the quality of the steaks here. Staff was friendly and efficient. Go there hungry or you will not be able to finish the steak

DELICIOUS. My husband had a 38oz steak that he said was the best he ever had. We all had different types of steak and everyone loved them. A definite for a return visit when we come back.

We went on a Monday at 8:30 and made reservations. We were grateful we did because it was really crowded. We only made it a few days before though.
