We love Vinnie's, we have been going there for a couple years now and it is always a good experience, I celebrated my birthday here last year (15 people) their private room is so beautiful, elegant, and cozy. The staff is very well trained. The steak is always good, they have fried lobster to die for, dessert always amazing!

We have celebrated my husband's birthday here for 2 years in a row now and absolutely love it. The food is great and so is the service! Go on a Monday night for a great steak and wine dinner for $80.

So, we almost went here on accident...we couldn't get in where we wanted to go, so, we had to find another spot for an impromptu date night. Did not let us down. The steak was so tender, the sides sublime. We will definitely be back to this little gem, tucked away in a retail park!

I was visiting family just before Thanksgiving and thought . . . who's going to go to a steakhouse just before the big turkey day. Boy was I wrong!! They squeezed us in (party of 5 plus 2 kids - yes kids) and made us feel like we had standing reservations. Plenty of staff for great, impeccable service. Friendly, warm,... More

It started with a genuine and warm welcome. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and was a great place to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was excellent, the service outstanding and their attention to details was wonderful. I highly recommend it.

Tuna appetizer is one of the best. Near perfect dish in its simplicity. Mushrooms and asparigus sides good. Ribeye was fine but not great. A little tough and so so flavor. Steak did not compare to Sullivan's or Ruth's Chris.

Kind of a local gem. Not a place we often think to go but always enjoy when we do. Food is good and staff is friendly. Waiter picked a great bottle of wine. They often run specials, was a price fixed $80 dinner for 2 including bottle of wine. However our choice of wine not on the selection list, so... More
