Steakhouse
$$$
“This place has been around for for over 50 years. You don't last that long without doing something right. If you're going during the weekend, I would HIGHLY recommend reservations and even then prepare to wait. We normally don't sit in the dining room, but prefer sitting at the bar and ordering a large steak plate and cocktails. Warning: You will get a funny look if you order meat well done or ask for A1/BBQ sauce. Meat at steakhouses are meant to be eaten medium to medium rare. ”
