"We went for the spotlight deal with The Famous Butchers Grill last night. Sadly the food was mostly average - the steak, which I asked for Blue was more Medium temperature, the chips were sadly a bit soggy and the creme brulee was more solid than butter. Sadly I feel the place was just on the positive side of mediocre for the food This was mitigated by amazing service from our waitress, she was friendly, chatty, vibey and really attentive. I didn't want to ruin her evening nor mine by sending food back and thus I think she is a credit to the place. The decor was sadly a bit dated but the live music was good and it was quiet and smoke free."

"Steak was amazing and the service was really good. The ambience is alright and really enjoed the live musix. However, when the live music is not playing, no other background music is playing. "

"Had an awesome time celebrating my husband's birthday with our family. Music was entertaining and interactive. Dessert was a bit of a dissappointment but enjoyed the overall service and dining experience."

"The service we experiences was very good. The dessert let us down a little but the staff quickly replaced it with a good alternative. Overall it was a good experience, I would however recommend an alternative type of entertainment as the live band/singer they had was not that good. It became a bit cheesy after a couple of songs because they all sounded the same (one tone). I do think that the restaurant is a good family type restaurant."

"The food was excellent, it maintain the standard as it has always been. I am happy to say that they did not drop their quality/portion just because it on special. The Ambience was great. The live music selected the perfect song for the mood, with volume just right for a good conversation. The services is however alittle dissapointing. The waiter have a poker face and doesnt seems to know exactly what he is doing. He was not able to explain the Table Magic special properly, don't seems very passionate when taking our orders. He's not there when we needed him, but shows up too many times when we don't need him. (three times asking us how was the food, all within 30min) We were sitting right at the corner, and was not able to find him whenever we need something. I ended up placing the dessert order through another waitres, which he doesnt seems very happy after he found out. The other waiteress are very friendly and the communication was fluent, which convinced me it not the language barrier that people would usually claim it is. "
