Fodor's Review

Special-occasion diners, conventioneers on expense accounts, and meat-loving locals haunt this surprisingly intimate dining room for great beef expertly prepared. The wood-and-brick interior has leather accents, Western landscapes, and vintage Old West photos, and servers wear stylish plaid shirts, all creating a relaxed urban-cowboy ambience. Here, prime 35-day dry-aged beef is king. Savor choice cuts with everyone’s favorite side, mashed potatoes and cheese with chunks

of smoked bacon, and a paired artisan brew. Non–steak options include Dungeness crab cakes and pan-roasted salmon. High-back booths are comfy, as is the chef's counter and the bar, where mixologists shake up strong bourbon cocktails.
