If you want to experience a real steak dinner, this is the place to try. With its live music and bohemian atmosphere, all your senses will be delighted. It has been voted the best steak house in the south bay several times in a row... need I say more?

This place is very local and very "old fashioned American" while still dishing out a pretty darn good prime rib for a pretty good price without all the fancy bottled water nonsense. It's pretty much a historical point of interest in the South Bay...you'll mostly find old timers and South Bay locals in here and so if you want a little taste of South Bay localism this is the spot.

Great neighborhood steakhouse. The spaghetti is also a favorite! Like to eat in the bar and watch sports with all the old Timers!

Been going here for so many years and it never gets old-the prime rib and eggplant is unbelievable! Cozy old leather booths and romantic ambiance!
