Friendly staff and very attentive! One of the best Greek salads we have had, very fresh! Our steaks were not that flavorful, maybe just an off night? We would go back (if in the area), based on the outstanding service and atmosphere!

5 of us had a birthday dinner here and enjoyed the casual country décor. The service was excellent. The menu was a little small but covered all the basics and elegant choices. The mushroom soup was as good as homemade. My steak was huge and cooked perfectly as requested. The sides were fresh locally sourced and a great compliment to... More

I had the flatiron steak. It was nicely prepared. The food generally is quite good. However they did a major renovation about 2 years ago. They replaced many soft surfaces with hard surfaces. Unfortunately it is now so noisy that I found myself shouting just to be heard by my table mates. The service was quite satisfactory though just a... More

I think to call yourself a steakhouse you half to offer more than 2 kinds of steak, (NY strip and flat iron), and more than one kind of pasta. Salad was only an ice burger lettuce salad with shredded carrot, one grape tomato and one slice of cucumber. The NY strip was flavourless, thin, over cooked and HEAVILY seasoned with... More

The food in this restaurant is terrible. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. To bad though, they are right off the highway.
