What a great way to start off the New Year 2015!! I’ve been wanting to try this place out for a long time since it opened back in May 2014, but seeing that I am pretty frugal and can’t afford to eat out too often, I’ve been putting this off for a long time until — surprise! — I received the birthday offer from the eClub.
With lunch priced at $29.50 and dinner at $49.50, it was a no-brainer to just do the lunch option. My wife and I went just after 1:00pm on this New Year’s Day when parking is free downtown. We were seated immediately and our waiter explained the process. I don’t need to go through everything as you can find plenty of reviews on Yelp and Urbanspoon, but let me just say that you definitely want to go here when hungry!
We stuffed ourselves silly with warm cheese bread, soup, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, fried polenta sticks, salad bar items and ten different fire roasted cuts of meat — sausage, lamb chops, Parmesan coated pork loin, pork ribs, bacon-wrapped chicken breasts, bottom sirloin, garlic beef, prime rib eye, filet mignon and top sirloin. And of course we saved the complimentary caramelized bananas for last. We passed on the dessert menu because we had plenty to eat and then some.
Payment was seamless — the server knew exactly what to do with my certificate and promptly subtracted $25 from the total bill. Day one of my birthday meals all month was a rousing success!
