Four of us ate at this restaurant in the lounge side and atmosphere was great. Awesome service, and the food was great. We will for sure go back sometime. The mac and cheese was delicious.

We ate in the lounge bar the menu was good. Beers & wines good. Service excellent. We had burgers which were brilliant, then followed with delicious desserts. Left feeling very full!! Couldn't fault it. The lounge bar had a great atmosphere & staff excellent. Would recommend.

Never had calamari prepared like this, awesome!! The duck tacos and stuffed dates were great. A little pricey but delicious!

Food was great - sweet potato fries with the special mayo sauce - chipotle bbq sauce is spicy and a perfect side to the steak - service was awesome

Steaks were terrible. (California cut and the Filet) under cooked and cold when served. Then reheated in and oven not on a grill like one would expect from a 'steak house'... The date appy and brussels sprouts side dish were great, like really great! Ordering wine never took so long.

Went here for a nice evening out, the food was fairly basic. My partner and I both had steak, which comes by itself, and we ordered a side of mashed potatoes. The food was fairly tasty but it was just too simple for the price they charge. The atmosphere in the restaurant is alright, the staff are lovely and service... More

If you like steak this IS the place. If you like burgers, this is THE place (we never tasted burgers so fantastic in our lives . . . we came back two more times!!). The surroundings in the restaurant are fantastic. Outside is stylish modern log built. Downstairs is kind of sports bar atmosphere whilst upstairs is fine dining at... More

The steaks were excellent as was the Caesar salad and broccoli. However the steaks are served a la carte meaning that all you got for that price was the steak and all sides are extra $. They make the sides big enough to serve two people which is fine if both people want the same side. The place is a... More

We went for dinner here with a big group of guys. The steaks were excellent as well as the rest of the food. Service was also great and the prices were not outrageous. We had one vegetarian in our group and they were great about providing options for him. They made him a special veggie burger which he said was... More
