Just Perfect!

“Friendly staff, amazing food, and nice atmosphere. I brought friends and ALL of us enjoyed it. I ordered the prime rib and it was the best prime rib I've ever had. That means a lot coming from me. It had such a good flavor, I can't get over it! They have specials different nights and last night we hit it right - risotto balls, which I've never heard of. The Tomato basil dipping sauce that came with it was to die for. My husband had a prime rib sandwich, he loved it. Everyone was so friendly. It was their first Friday night being open, and people kept streaming in. From what I hear they've been busy every night. No wonder! The food is wonderful. We will definitely be back.”

“A friend and I stopped in for dinner and drinks last night and we both could not be more pleased with our decision! The food was absolutely delicious at every course, from appetizers all the way through dessert. The staff was very attentive to the needs of all patrons and not just their tables. There wasn't a single aspect of our dining experience that we would change.”
