This restaurant is the sorriest fable of a steak restaurant I have visited in many years. 3 of us dined. We all ordered surf and turf, recommended by the waiter. None of the steaks were cooked properly; The baked potatoes were cold...The surf was 5...More

Great prices, variety, quality, service, atmosphere, location, parking... What's not to like -- nothing?! It was our first experience and we'll return soon. Serves and seats everything from casual to fine in its several dining room alternatives -- the central gas fireplace was especially pleasant...More

We frequently dine here where you will find good quality food and fine service. The soup and salad bar is extensive and you can make yourself a healthy meal from its contents alone. My favorite dish is the Surf and Turf special with pasta marinara.
