Never been to the local, a friend suggested that we try it. Was not disappointed food was good, the steak was cooked to perfection. Parking is not great as a few establishments in the same street. Best to Uber!!

We had an amazing night here doing The Beef Appreciation. Most of the night was in the kitchen and it was not just a dinner but a complete evening experience. If you are at all a steak eater make time for this dining option!
