My wife and I tried this place today on the recommendation of a friend of mine who spoke highly of the prime rib.

I give this a solid 8/10. For $46 you also get two sides with it, and the slab of roasty, beefy goodness is very well portioned.

It had a nice cap, good flavor both on the crust and throughout, and they serve it with a great seasoning salt (tasted like a sweet but spicy old bay salt), horseradish cream sauce, and gravy in a tea kettle.

The item that stole the show for me though was this grilled artichoke appetizer that our really nice and helpful waitress Marissa recommended.

The halves were perfectly seasoned, steamed, grilled, and then hit with some finishing salt. Absolutely awesome.

They serve some good crafted cocktails, and the bar is impressive as well.

Not a bad lunch!

  1. ps for their french dip sandwich, they shave the very same prime rib onto a toasty baguette with some New Orleans style “debris.”
    Good shit!!!

  2. Glad you liked it, Johnny!
    Next time try the burger; it’s up there with the best of ‘em! Also the spinach dip.

  3. I use to love this place in the late 1990’s when it was Houston’s……..is it me or do the lights over the bar look like your grilled artichoke app? By the way I second the recommendation for the french dip, one of my all time favorite sandwiches.
