    Pork Chops here are sooo yummy. It's four meals for me, crazy huge chops and there's two of them.

    Followed some tips and ordered up the Spencer steak. Holy cow. Worth the wait and more.

    Get the large steak sandwich. Not really a sandwich - more like a ribeye thrown on top of garlic bread and smothered with fries. To die for.

    Mark Hammond · July 3, 2014

    The best oak grilled beefy juicy steak you will ever have.

    Eugene Wang · June 8, 2014
  • Scott L.

    Call early to get reservations, have your whole party show up on time and be prepared to wait anyway. The place is dingy and loud but the steak is great. Is it worth it?

    Scott Landers · August 5, 2013

    Reservations go out the window when it gets busy. Fair warning.

    I love this place, amazing food but they suck about seating people. and I dont know why the HELL they take reservations as you wait 1.5 hours regardless.

    Emily Van Norden · December 29, 2012

    Prepare to wait even with a reservation. I wasn't too impressed with the food. Not to say it was bad or that I wouldn't go back. I'm just saying I've had better.

    The Small spencer is big, so I can't imagine what a large is like, but very good, and ice cream included awesome

  • Jeffy G.

    18 oz. filet mignon not big enough for you? Get the extra cut for an extra 10 oz. of steak. That's the biggest filet I've ever seen (& eaten)

    You MUST get the Spencer cut...Also, they usually under cook the steaks. Even if you ask for medium, most likely, it'll come out medium-rare.
