We visited the restaurant recently and were quickly greeted by Max, our friendly and attentive server. To get started, we sampled a half dozen jumbo (and we do mean enormous) shrimp cocktail served with spicy cocktail sauce. The crab cake is large enough for two people to share, made almost entirely of pure crabmeat, topped with a spicy Cajun lobster sauce.
Steaks are the name of the game here and take on every shape and size seasoned to perfection. Pair up a glass of Hess Cabernet or Stag’s Leap Cabernet with the juicy wet aged bone-in ribeye or enormous and uber tender double eagle special. Other steaks include a bone-in filet, Tomahawk veal chop, 16-ounce prime strip and gigantic 24-ounce porterhouse. Sides here are a la carte and large enough to be shared. We split a baked potato, which came with all of the complements, including bacon, sour cream, chives and cheddar cheese. Desserts here should not be missed, especially the gigantic layered lemon cake. Don’t worry if you can’t finish it – they will send you home with the rest.
