This is a IU landmark. It's a simple place that makes great food and doesn't need to complicate things. It is a nice relaxed setting were you can get a quality steak, just can't beat it.

We always order the sirloin-for-two -- cooked exactly to order, and enough for us to take home leftovers. Comes with a baked potato and a pretty generic salad. And white bread. Don't forget the white bread. But the steak is delicious!!!

What looks more like a Mom & Pop pizza place has some great food, decent beer, and good wine selection. VERY crowded - had to wait 20 minutes past our scheduled reservation time. Friendly wait staff.

Just an FYI ==> this place can be quite busy but it is worth the wait. If the line waiting to get in is any indication of the food quality you can't but not give it a 5. Fast friendly service, they knew what we...More

We both had Fillet and it was prepared perfectly. Wonderful melt in your mouth flavor. But the restaurant was noisy and a portion of the kitchen is in the dining area so you hear the clanking of dishes while you eat. Plus their air conditioning...More

I don't know for sure, but most restaurants are happy to accommodate special diner needs. For instance, dieters sometimes go on a low- or no-starch dirt. Asking for two salads or an additional green side would not be... More

There are actually quite a few GF options. If the seasoning doesn't affect you, then all of the steaks should be fine, along with the French Pork Chops, Lamb chops, Steak Kabob, and Grilled chicken. Seafood options should be... More
