Well, maybe Alameda finally has a steak and chop house worthy of staying in business! Not cheap but huge portions and very well prepared. You won't be disappointed at this locale... gets busy quick and if you're in the mood for a highball... this is the right place for you. So much to choose from. Let's hope this place opens for lunch soon!

Friendly attentive service, perfectly cooked flat iron steak. While a little noisy, you take that as a lively, happy crowd. And the bar? One of the best rye old-fashioneds I've had----with plenty of liquor choices

Restaurants come and go here, but this one is a keeper. Good choice of cocktails and wines, and the food is well-prepared. The bison burger was rich and cooked medium rare perfectly as I had requested. My partner had chicken breast, mashed potatoes and peas and it looked very appetizing and he said it was the best he had ever had.Everything was prepared with care, although the side of green peas were not very tender, but an interesting side.

My friends and I frequent this place for their amazing happy hour, and their delicious cocktails. They make the best Manhattan in town, and also have a killer variety of whiskeys. I absolutely love their food as well. The flank steak is always cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. Their burgers are also legit, and a great bang for your buck! They don't take reservations, and fill up fast on the weekends, so get there early.

Service is always exceptional and we've never been let down!
