    You can't go wrong with the NY strip. Try it with bleu cheese. And macaroni. And creamed spinach.

    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

    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.
