We went to Mark Allen's for a great date night on Wednesday. For $40 you receive an appetizer to share, salads, 2 entrees, a bottle of wine of your choice and a messy yummy dessert to share. We had a fabulous meal and great service! Steaks were top quality and the angel hair pasta with stuffed chicken was my favorite.... More

My new FAVORITE dessert is the molten lava cake with cherry sauce. What a great Feb . treat! The warm chocolate gooeyness with the cherries is a great combination. Try this while it's still available.

Hubby took me here for my birthday dinner. It was a Saturday night and it was busy even at 7:30 so we had a decent wait. We were offered a spot at the bar to wait with drink and appetizer. Once we got a table, the service and food were very good. We got the bruschetta for an appetizer and... More

My husband had the prime rib, a huge cut and cooked perfectly! I had the ribeye and it was perfect. Started the meal with the best onion rings, the cheesy potatoes were the bomb, and finished with a fantastic choice of desserts, from which we chose to share a fabulous piece of chocolate mousse cake! Will gladly make the 2... More

Have had fish taco many times, this time very disappointed in fish portion size, had to open taco to make sure it was in there. Companions had buffalo chicken sandwich and hamburger and couldn't finish either one, so generous were the portions and sides. We also shared bruchetta (spelling?)and it was excellent.

This restaurant is #1 in the area where my mom lives so we decided to try it out. I enjoyed the atmosphere and artwork! I would say it is more "upscale" than other restaurants in the Peru area. The only negative is my mom was trying to eat healthy but her salad was $18. Great service though! They also have... More
