Have to say one of the best steaks that I have had on the East coast. Their onion rings are almost as good as The Ringside, in Portland, Oregon! Excellent salads, incredible steaks! None of the "boys" wanted dessert until they came with the dessert...More

Really not exaggerating here. This was the best steak we've ever had. And we've had a lot of steak. Perfection.
