  • People taking the order were not professional. The food was not tasty and the atmosphere were not pleasing. I doubt it we'll go back.

  • The food just wasn't good. Been there twice and had the same problem. The steak was sent back numerous times before it was right. Asked for well done got medium rare. Vegetables weren't cooked they were cold and hard kind of lukewarm. On top of that both times I was there they had a bunch of rowdy people hanging out in the parking lot. Maybe they needed to get that security guard whose wandering around that restaurant to police that parking lot. They hang out in front of the restaurant cursing at each other and standing in the way of the door after they've eaten. Just the entire experience is terrible. Wouldn't suggest this place to anyone.

  • Order: steaks potato, grilled shrimp skewers

  • This resturant is very poorly organized. Every problem we had came from that fact alone.
    First, we were not warmly greeted. A large, intimidating man stood at the front desk silently while we had to sk for seating. It was not offered.
    Our server was under 21 which in Indiana meant that getting our drinks from the bar was a huge hassle. First one got his beer. Then 10 minutes later I got my mixed drink. Finally 5 minutes after that, an arm appears around the corner to slide a Cookie Blast onto the table. When we had offered our IDs to the waitress upon ordering alcohol, she waved us off saying I don't need to see that.
    While the server was taking our order, the hostess interrupted her to rather rudely explain the process for entering a "Cookie Blast" into the computer.
    As we waited for our food, we noticed a man with a "SECURITY" shirt roaming around the resturant packing a gun. He would walk about the tables, into the kitchen, behind the bar. It is understandable that Indiana has CC permits but seeing someone exit a kitchen with a large firearm strapped to their hip will unsettle most anyone from "The People's Republic of Illinois".
    When the table seated next to us left in a huff over having not recieved their food, we realised we had been seated for an hour and still did not have ours either. We flagged down our waitress and she said the delay was being caused by a party of 20 (which we later found out was for a 6 year old's birthday).
    Soon it was out - cold. Two of us chose to order the appitizer samplers as our meals. The are large, after all. The 3rd ordered a rare steak with fries but got a mushroom swiss hamburger. After telling the waitress that it was wrong, he got the proper steak - perfectly prepared and at a delicious temperature - less than 5 minutes later.
    The food itself was not delicious. The cheese sauce on my nachos, being cold, was lumpy and the salsa tasted like nothing more than ketchup with chili powder added.

  • Order: nachos, chicken strips & moz. sticks, and guiness steak with fries
