This is the best steak and ribs place in town. Yes, it's a close run race but after many many dinners here, this place gets the cigar. Don't come for the service or even comfortable dining - come for the meat. GooglePlace - August 2017

Came with high recommendations from a close friend. I booked a table almost a month ahead to make sure there will be no mishap. Got on time and received a table to my wife's liking. Got started with stale dry bread. Swallowed it. The waiter received the order and brought back a small glass of beer. When I asked why the small glass I was answered that I didn't ask for a specific size. The glass was billed and a pint was brought on top. Asked for plain water with lemon, got mineral water instead. Swallowed it. Explaining my wife was not feeling very well resulted in setting the table for one. On top of all this, while waiting for our order, we were asked to switch tables to accommodate another guest. We paid and left promptly since we did not believe the food itself was worth the wait. Surely this waiter needs more hours in school and for a different vocation. It could have been a great evening. GooglePlace - July 2017

This place is awesome. I had the shrimp in spicy garlic sauce appetizer (special) and shared the ribs and a Angus rib-eye steak (special). Everything we ate here was truly fantastic and should make it on your must-eat lists in Amsterdam. GooglePlace - April 2017

Restaurant was great!! Came with a big crew and they were able to accommodate us (with reservations beforehand - make sure to or else you won't get in the night of). Many in our crew had steaks, I went with the veal and it was great. Pork ribs also looked outstanding. One weird thing - you have to eat on your lap with a tray at some of the tables. That was a little goofy, but not worth complaining about and the overall ambiance was very cool. GooglePlace - January 2017

This place has a really cool vibe and atmosphere. I loved being in the restaurant. It is so unexpected and very unique! The food is so good too! So much variety you won't be disappointed. The T-bone steak and baked potato were excellent! The only reason I gave this place 4 stars is because of the seating options. They don't have real dinning tables, so you sit with a TV tray to eat on. Unfortunately, eating a steak on a TV tray placed on your lap means you end up spilling half your contents on the floor, or on yourself. Either way, I am sure I will be back! This place is very unique and interesting, and the food is wonderful. GooglePlace - January 2017
