Surprisingly, no one has reviewed this place. We went their last night, SWMBO, my son and his lovely wife person. The three of them had been there before and thought highly of it, thus a return visit. SWMBO, opted for the Chilean Sea Bass, which I knew would be a mistake, and I got the 8 oz. FM. The place is interesting is that service is top notch. Everyone is well rehearsed, including Toni our waitress, and knows their stuff. I think the biggget draw is the sides that come with your dinner. The meat eaters got some seasoned mashed potatos with brown gravy. Everyone got their whole kernal creamed corn. Both were very good. In addition the waitstaff comes aroulnd with a large platter of little green onions, scallions to some of you people, and sliced tomatoes and gives you some of these. The bread was fresh and warm and good. My wife's CSB was average. It appeared to be slightly overcooked and not partiicularly flavorful. That , imho, is in part because I think CSB is not a very tasty fish to start with. My FM was cooked perfectly. (When they bring your steak to your table they ask you to slice into it to check if it cooked to your preference). The meat itself was not as tasty as I had expected. It had a strange taste I could not identlify, at times tasted like freezer burn, and at times had a soft, pasty consistency that I associate with meat tenderizer. Our dessert was a delicous bread pudding with a big scoop of ice cream on top and a caramel pecan sauce.. They servied Qupe syrah by the glass, my favorite, and sold us a bottle for the price of four glasses, which was okay by me.

Our watiress, Toni, was a wisp of a girl, probably from Round Rock or someplace nearby but she was congenial;, took my teasing and questions in stride and knew her stuff. She had been taught, rehearsed and was accomplished at what she was doing. Hooray for her.Will I go back?. Maybe if the family really pushes for it. Not for the meat but for the experience and the sides, dessert, drinks ( they made a pretty good Negroni although the bartender didn't know what it was.)
