The only thing that’s wild about this place is how insanely popular it is—even on a sleepy Tuesday night, you’ll need a reservation. Other than that, though, the menu will be familiar (think upscale T.G.I. Friday’s). Steaks seem to be a favorite among regulars, but we found that the seafood fared better: meaty swordfish London broil is topped with juicy roasted tomatoes and sweet roasted red onions, and crab-crusted shrimp are the epitome of guilty pleasures.

The half off appetizers from 3-6 M-F are a steal. However, the cocktail menu in the martini lounge is not very extensive. The ambiance isn't that great either. It's like any other steakhouse. You're better off going somewhere else.
