This is my 3rd visit. You rarely go anywhere that knows how to properly deliver your meal and timed correctly. This place does and it is a rare treat. Besides the outstanding service, everything I have had was 1st rate. Mushroom soup is the best...More

Food is ok, steaks average, very pricey. Peppers and bread for starters is great. If you are looking for a good steakhouse in the area go to Kelsey's in Valparaiso.

The food and service are always of the highest quality. Can't beat them...I only get there once/twice per year but they remember me! They serve plentiful quantities but reasonable. The menu is diverse enough for any tastes.

We had a group of 8 people and everyone commented how great the food was. The Alskan king crab legs were some of the best I've ever had. And the cheesecake, oh the cheesecake! Beats the Cheesecake Factory hands down.

Gino's was a wonderful Italian reasturant. The lunch menu had a large selection and very reasonable prices. Our waitress was very professional and friendly. I had the dish with Italian sausage, green peppers and potatoes which was cooked in a wonderful sauce. Loved it! Nice...More
