    It was a mantastic filet, the ambience of the restaurant was just great (like a mafia flick) and service was great, even though we came in close to closing time. Will return with hot date!

    Pepper steak has been über reliably *noms* - if you want to splurge your diet with some old-school red meat & potatoes, especially take out, especially in the Marina, brazen head is the place

    Try the Beef Stroganoff - #kvpinmybelly - Thick, buttery noodles with a yummy beef sauce. NOM!

    Try the Mussels In Garlic Wine Butter - #kvpinmybelly : Savory garlic wine broth. Fresh shellfish. Plenty of garlic bread to sop it all up. Heaven.

    Great ambiance, carrying the torch for the late great Liverpool Lil's. Food is great, I'd go for the steak and a strong Manhattan.

    Great for late night eat and drink. The Monday Maker's Mark Special is worth it.

    Excellent small traditional American restaurant with full bar and full service; Kitchen open until 1 am; The pepper steak, veal picatta, escargot and caesar salad are fantastic and classic.

    Prime Rib is excellent, but the price is not $21.and it is served everyday.

    If your group includes six people or fewer, The Brazen Head is for you. Larger groups will probably not even fit. Read more

    Crab cakes tasted like Gordon's fish sticks (maybe more dry). NY strip comes covered in sauce - who puts sauce on such a great piece of meat??? The baby spinach salad was decent. Not worth a return

    Got a roast beef instead of a steak and a warm glass of Cabernet for 12 bucks. Disappointing.
