Our steaks are our trademark, prepared to perfection by professionals who know the difference between great meat and dry, bland ones. In addition, our beef is aged to intensify the flavor and improve the tenderness of the cut. A dash of seasoning is added, just to taste but not to overpower the rich flavor of the beef. 

All steaks at this restaurant are aged Certified Angus Beef, served with a choice of soup or salad and a hefty serving of mashed potatoes and gravy. Options to our steak dishes include caramelized onions, blue cheese, sautéed mushrooms, house Béarnaise, Oscar style, and jumbo shrimp skewer - and we haven't even reached the good part yet!

In addition, our bone-in NY Strip is a steak dish served with baby portabella mushrooms, roasted garlic steak butter, and white truffle oil. Lastly, to make sure that you’ll get the best flavor possible, our Filet Mignon is wrapped in Applewood bacon.
