    The food is excellent! The prices are super reasonable and they even give you a second round of steak for free. I definitely recommend this place. Be prepared for the fixed price set menu. 😁

    Bottomless bloody marys, screwdrivers & mimosas for brunch? Yes, please! To eat get Medium Rare's Famous Benedict: sliced steak, portobello, mushroom, "the perfect poached egg", topped w/ hollondaise.

    The steak is one of the best ( if not the best) steak I've ever had in my life. The service was top notch and friendly. I highly recommend the secret sauce 😋

    The steak,salad & frites or as us Americans like to call it "Fries" are by far the best in the city! I love this place it is a great spot for a group of friends to meet and have a easy dinner!

    Everything is so good. One of my go to’s for date night, birthdays, and visiting family. It feels a little fancy since it’s a nice steak dinner but won’t break the bank

    Loved the Concept! Dinner and Dessert were excellent. Pepe Le Pew speaking french in the bathroom was hillarious. I will definitely visit again and recommend. You must enjoy a noisy atmosphere.

    The French Toast at brunch is made with the same amazing bread they serve at dinner. It's got a great outside crunchiness with doughy soft inside!

    Great steak, fries, for$20. And just when you think you're done, they bring the second helping. You have to ask for ketchup though.

    I would recommend a bottle of Malbec, specifically the "Simona Moenaert Estate" from Argentina. If you're not in the mood for wine, I would then suggest the Avery IPA, one of my personal favorites.

    We love this place and go there quite often. Their sauce is simply delicious,but leave some room for desserts!

    There was only a prix fixe menu for the entire place. The only choice you get is for drinks and the temperature of your steak. One free refill on the steak and fries.

    Bottomless Sunday brunch for $25, need I say more? The steak and eggs is wonderful! Be sure to make a reservation, this is a very popular place!

    It's an average stake, ain't that's perfect. However, it tastes good. It's about full corse:start with bread and butter than salad followed by the stake and fries.The stake's sauce is the good thing.

    Everyone knows it for the steak, but the secret sauce is my favorite part. And the brunch is excellent -- but reservations are recommended.

    Brunch is $23: bottomless mimosa/bloody mary/screwdriver with appetizer and entree. Portion of the entree is quite small.

    Fantastic location for Sunday brunch. If you have more than 2 you should reserve a table because it gets crowded.

    Great, moderately priced brunch. If you're alone, eat at the bar and make friends with the bartenders.

    Steak and fries... Pretty simple. Steals are cut thin, so if you order closer to the well side normally I'd go a bit more medium/rare.

    A) there's a secret vegetation option B) ask for the "spiked" hot fudge sundae for dessert .... That is all ;)

    Came for a Saturday brunch. While its certainly an inexpensive choice, the food wasn't anything to write home about & the drinks (mimosas in our case) were mostly orange juice.

    For a fixed price of $19.50, their award-winning culotte steak & hand-cut fries with secret sauce is absolutely delicious.

    Cab sav from chateau smith is excellent. Rioja is okay. Delicious steak for price. Gravy is the best.
