Had dinner there with four friends. I ordered the Rainbow Trout and it was very good. They also have a real nice wine selection. My friends all enjoyed their meals too. I've eaten there many times and it's always great!

The steaks here are excellent and unless you have a massive appetite you don’t really need a starter. Our party tried the local delicacy Fried Green Tomatoes- they were dreadful! The house red wine was a blend , but reasonable value given the silly wine...More

Highly mediocre steak house. Frankly based on the food and service I would suggest saving some money and going to Longhorn Steakhouse. The steak was ok. The fries were ok. The desert was ok, but was definitely an oreo pie rather than the snickers pie...More
