This is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville. We usually go when we are in town for a football game.The steaks are always superb, grilled just like you order, also the scallops. Great service from waiters who know what they are doing.This restaurant always delivers.

On Charlottesville's north side, this is a nice old fashioned steak house. We had prime rib which tasted great. The only disappointment was they did not have horseradish sauce. Salad was large and good. (Salad dressings are homemade) very fresh. Shrimp cocktail was one of...More

What a disappointing dinner. Went there for my brother’s birthday. Filet mignon was tough and the prime rib was a poor cut and tough also. Service was slow. We have gone there many times over the years but this was our last time.

Loved the atmosphere and decor. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were greeted and seated promptly. But most of all the food was done to perfection!

We had dinner and really enjoyed the old school charm of the restaurant. The prime rib was excellent and my daughter's steak was great. And the prices are very reasonable - at least by larger city standards. $35 for the extra thick cut prime rib...More
