    Steaks are of very good quality, from the $19.99 hanger to the $35.99 rib eye called a cowboy cut. They no longer come with free sides, but in steakhouse land, $5 for mashed potatoes is a steal.

    Definitely get the mashed potatoes/creamed spinach if you get steak. It's incredible, as is the steak.

    Best Chocolae Mousse in the world. And the service is amazing - even the General Manager made several stops at our table to make sure we were enjoying our evening.

    If ya want burgers/ribs and/or bar atmosphere, sit in the "bistro" area. Steaks/seafood are available in whole restaurant, but dining experience is more elegant in the "restaurant " area. Reservation
