Don't let the fact that it shares a parking lot with the Best Western fool you. This charming restaurant offers a classic steakhouse atmosphere and a solid meal. The meat was prepared very simply - very little seasoning - but it was cooked to perfection just the way we asked for it. Drinks were reasonably priced. Service was a little slow, but they were very attentive with our water glasses. And they have great, classic '50s music from Frank, Satchmo, et al, playing in the background, just loud enough to hear but not so loud that it drowns out your conversation. A little overpriced for what it is, but it was still a lovely dinner.
