I love this place! The steaks are great, and the prices can't be beat. Try the creative appetizers, in particular the bacon appetizer and the deviled eggs. You will be pleased. When you see the prices you will be shocked at how low they are compared to other places. The price aside, honestly, I think their steak quality and preparations... More

Stopped by just to meet a buddy from High School. Ended up having dinner and cocktails. Soup, salad and dessert were all well prepared and worth a return trip.

The service and food were both good, not great. I've had a better rib eye. The filet was undercooked. The wine list was minimal. Everything else was fine. I would go back.

I rank this local steak house over Ruth Chris. offerings may not be as much but what they have is fantastic plus it's the type of place where the staff remembers you. Hadn't been here in a long time but a lot of familiar faces were there to greet my friend and I. If you want a burger this place... More

My husband and I were in the mood for a good hamburger. The Classics is the place to go for it.(Also have an extensive menu for other things including hanger steak, that are well priced) The manager was friendly and greeted us. We sat in the bar area that includes tables and chairs. First, spicy cashews and bread arrived at... More

Nowhere better for Steaks, and the prices can't be beat. Everyone I take here loves it - seriously. What impresses me is the how they flavor their food. You can tell the really care about what they serve. Highly recommend.

I think this is probably a good local spot to go to for a drink, to watch a game or to have a casual meeting with friends. I had a business dinner there. The food was very underwhelming so it's not a place to impress people.

Pros: The steak, fresh roasted cashews, freshly baked herbed bread, and baked potato were all very good. Between us we had 2 Filet Mignon and one special 22 oz. bone-in Ribeye. All were perfectly cooked to medium rare. The lightly spiced roasted cashews were a great palate starter. The freshly baked bread was good, but would have been better if... More

Three colleagues and I were entertained at The Classics. We had a private room. The room was sparsely decorated, the walls had scuff marks and the carpet stained. It felt more like a staff canteen room than a private dining room. Our server arrived, leaned over, resting on one of the empty chairs and proceeded with .... "welcome to our... More
