Excellent food and the friendliest staff make this a must stop and eat in the area. Amazing steaks and reasonable priced wine list with local bottles. Nice bar and happy hour.

This is an outstanding steakhouse. Outstanding. The cuts of beef are generous, the ribeye well-marbled, the filet nice and thick. My mouth is watering just thinking about this place. When you order off the regular menu, there are endless sides of onion rings, salsa, campfire...More

McLintocks is always a fun place to dine. From the life size Bison to the wait staff attire and of course your water glass being filled from 5 feet above your table makes your dining experience a memorable one. Our food has always been delicious...More

They do take reservations and it's easier/safer to have a reservation than not is my rule of thumb. You never know what they might have going on.

Sorry - no outdoor seating, but you could leave the dogs in the car with the windows down or put them in a doggie daycare. I believe there is one on or near Madonna Road.
