I have been told best steaks and a must go. My t-bone had zero edible tenderloin (fatty and other connective tissue), 2 of 3 medium rare requested steaks (emphasis on closer to “rare” than “medium”) came out almost medium. The bone-in filet was okay, not outstanding. 2 of the t-bones were very chewy. The up charge of $5 for a baked potato on a $45+ plate seemed not worth it. The mashed potatoes that come with the entree (1 of 1 included sides) was very good but not as healthy. On the positive…The salad is very good! The wine special was fantastic at 1/2 price for a very nice Cabernet. Our server was the right amount of attentive and worked hard to make things right. Our meal with 4 people (food only) averaged about $50 per person + drinks and tip. The atmosphere is loud so make sure you’re up for that robust environment.

Great experience. Food was excellent and service was outstanding. Should have a smaller steak on menu, like a 6 ounce as my wife could not eat the smallest steak on the menu. The birthday steak was a great value.

We went for my sons birthday and we probably will not be returning. I held my company Christmas party there about 4 weeks ago and it was good however, last night was one of our worst dining experiences anywhere.
For starters we were an early reservation at 4:45 so it wasn’t very busy yet. Our server rushed the entire meal and experience for us and continued to try and upscale us even after we told him our order. 2 of the steaks were not cooked right and had to be returned and one steak was the incorrect type. I had to wait for some time for the ribeye to be brought out that the manager came to the table to apologize. I continued to wait and just asked for it to be Togo as everyone was done eating and we wanted to do the birthday cake we brought. I didn’t want to hold up our party any longer. We asked for separate bills and the server only brought out 1 bill. The bill was not itemized and it was just total bill. My husband gave his card to the server and we began to ask the other guest at our table what their total was as we felt ours was extremely high given the fact my sons meal was free for his birthday. That’s when we realized it was all on 1 bill. Before my husband could locate the server he had already run our card. So then he apologized and divided the bill. Yet again we only received a total bill and not itemized. This is not acceptable and he already ran our card again when he brought the 2nd bill to the table. Now this bill was incorrect too as he didn’t take off the birthday meal. So now he had to run our card again, we asked for the manager because the transactions should have been voided. Now we have over $1000 pending on our acct. due to mistakes and poorly run dining. We do not appreciate nor like the fact that this was done. Also, my TOGO steak should not have been charged for for all the hassle we had and the manager didn’t do anything about that. I would not recommend dining here to anyone in the future and you have lost our business.

This was a favorite restaurant of mine. The prices have changed a lot and the entrée options for a guests birthday have also changed. I was caught off guard by this at my birthday dinner celebration. The service was top notch even tho the food has been better in the past.

Celebrated my husbands birthday here. First time there. We will never go back. First off, place smells old. They sat us in a tight 2 person booth, we asked to be moved to a bigger booth as my husband didn’t fit in the booth. They moved us to the “back, old room” as the waitress called it. It got worse. It was as if we time traveled back to a 90s Applebees. We both are big steak eating people. We ordered a T-bone and Center cut Filet mignon with mashed potatoes. We ordered the gator bites as our starter.. they were frozen.. very chewy. The house salad.. let’s just say you can prepare a better salad at home. The bread is nothing great. The steaks tasted like Turkey legs you get at a theme park.
Mash potatoes had no flavor. We ordered one that was loaded and the bacon bits were burnt. Price is ridiculous for 2 people. Could had taken my money to a top of the line restaurant then wasting it here. We were extremely disappointed as we have been recommended to try this place.

We’ve been to TCC numerous times. We go once a month, over an hour drive. We order the dang bang shrimp every time. The table behind us, it was their first time and their dang bang shrimp came out and the lady delivering it to the table made a comment dang they really hooked y’all up with the shrimp. The waiter made a comment similar. Wasn’t appreciated to see a table Order what we order and pay what we pay baguette almost 3 to 4 times more than what we did.

The layout of the restaurant is a good, It could benefit from a bit more space between tables to allow enough room for the waiters/waitress to navigate between tables. Food was good and could have been better, was a bit too salty (Aged T-boneand Filet mignon), salad was just okay, cheesy garlic bread was just okay as well.

My wife and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary here. It was amazing! I’m not a steak person, so I got the Parmesan crusted chicken and wow! They didn’t disappoint. My wife got the aged porterhouse and she loved it. We will be back for MY birthday next month!

Just a reminder , because I overlooked this, they add 20% gratuity if one of your party is using they birthday discount. Also all parties of 6 or more get tip added. However, great food and service. Bye the way, bring a sweater, they keep it cold.
