The steak was not fit for a dog. Octopus and sides were great. The service was great; they took back the steak, replaced with lamb chops with No charge. They tried very hard to make it right. However, you cannot fix poor quality meat and tasteless lamb chops.

Very confused - fancy setting, expensive pricing but dance club lights and sparklers for birthdays? Is it nice or tacky? Ordered the filet mignon risotto and found a piece of plastic in my meal. They removed the dish from the bill and a round of drinks and the bill was STILL $150. For the price, I would’ve expected everyone involved to be paying more attention and care to our experience. For example, the waiter did not know the menu nor the alcohol list, and there were no specials.

Our dinner at BBG was amazing! We had oysters, Mac & cheese, Surf & Turf, NY Strip and sautéed spinach. Everything including the bread and dipping sauce were delicious! Our waiter Steve was awesome! Knowledgeable and friendly- he treated us very well! Even surprised us with an anniversary dessert and played a song as he presented it to us(turned out to be our wedding song!). All in all, it was a great time and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! Can’t wait to go back again!

First time at BBG. Walked in and it was freezing. Apparently there was a problem 3 the restaurants heating system. They offered an electric heater to us once a other table left that was using it. We had to keep our jacket on the entire meal. Food was very good and top quality. Portions are large but overpriced. Bone in rib eye was fantastic, the unique French onion soup was rich and quite good, wedge salad was excellent and enough for 2 people to share. Wine was in a large wine glass and more than 1/2 full. All n' all the meal was very good. When my mom complained about the heat and asked for some sort of concession all they did was apologize and tell us the mechanic was working in their heating system
They did not even offer to cover 1 drink which is the least they should have done. Our waiter was a nice friendly young man who was very knowledgable about the different cuts of meat, etc. However, he must of been the waiter for the entire restaurant because it took too long to get drinks, and to pay for our meal. Once he brought the bill over to us we were ready to pay and he should have come right back to take our money but we waited a while for him to come back. With all of that said I would still come back and give it one more try.

Our good friends recommended this place so we could stay somewhat local and still have a good steak for my husband's birthday. We sat in a cozy little booth had a bottle of some delicious Merlot and stuffed our faces. They brought out some toasted bread with some cheese sauce. I could've stayed here all night eating that alone! We started with a slab of bacon, rock shrimp, and calamari. Follow that with a wedge salad, some strip steaks with a side of cream spinach, and for the one that didn't want steak tonight the bacon burger with the works. Everyone finished off with the ice cream Sundays. The food,the service, the ambience, was absolutely fantastic. Will be coming back here again

I've been to the BBG twice, the first time was a different experience. We sat at the bar the first time and had the bartenders recommendations which were excellent, I just didn't think the second time was up to the first experience. We'll give it another try - three times a charm.

We went to the BBG to celebrate my husbands birthday. It's right near our house but we had never been before. The food was delicious, we had the calamari appetizer, lamb chop and filet mignon Oscar style entrees. Our waiter was very nice and the service great. They made his bday special by bringing out a cake with a sparkler, they dimmed the lights and played fun music when they brought the cake. There was also a couple celebrating their anniversary and they played a special song for them too . Overall great evening out!

The food was so delicious! I ordered the Filet Mignon Risotto and my husband had the BBQ Ribs. We also ordered a Mac n Cheese on the side. Everything came out impeccable and we even packed leftovers for lunch the next day and the food tasted so much better then. Would definitely return to this restaurant again for another date night!

Lobster Bisque which I have ordered for years did not taste right. The lobster was so stringy and tough and difficult to cut, even with the steak knife. I eaten lobsterer 74 years, but this tasted STRANGE. I returned it and was credited.
The salad was great!
THE Ribs were prepared just right and tasted good.
The tilapia was good and crust was great with the wilted spinach.
The creme brûlée was cold and mushy and lacked it's usual taste.
The service was Excellent from Devin.

Food was awful. Fruit flies like the place more then we did. Espresso was cold and taste burnt. Waiter brought milk over with the espresso. Steak doesn’t compare to high end steak houses. The meat quality is fair at best. Chilean Sea Bass was over cooked. And Creme Brûlée was cold inside and awful. Over all the place sucks.

Weekday service and food is better than Sundays. What a huge difference. Dont go Sunday when it opens. They tend to put not very experienced wait staff and only 1. We ordered coffee and can you believe it came out borderline cool and then you add milk it became cold...very disappointing. I’ve never had a restaurant serve cool coffee when it’s supposed to be hot.
The chef is inconsistent with there cooking. If you order the same things on diff days it will come out different. Not sure what is going on but the quality control is not up to par.
Went there a few times but after Sunday we will not be going again
All in all the free garlic bread is really good! That i pretty consistent.

I usually don't eat a porterhouse steak, it just sounded good -- my husband and I shared a 42oz slab of meet, it was a lot of meat for the price (a very good value) - however, as with most steakhouses it came with nothing, all a la carte. We ate at the bar and found one of the most attentive bar tenders you could ever ask for, Jay! He took such good care of us that we didn't need to go to the table. We up to try again and I'll order a different cut of meat. It's a local restaurant and close!

As we took a good hunk of meat home with us - I am looking forward to trying it again. Thank you Jay for providing a wonderful evening - you're the best.

Went for lunch, restaurant was empty. Not a good sign. Ordered appetizers of calamari and hummus. Both were decent in flavor and value. Entrees were ALL over cooked - burgers and ribs were very dry and way over cooked. Fish special was flavorless, dry and over cooked as well. The plate service was so hot it burned the waiter and me! Almost a liability. With menu pricing as high as it is the management should find a proper chef and sous chef. We expected better and were celebrating a birthday. Appreciated the waiter, Pavel. He was pleasant and attentive and delivered a sweet birthday cake at the end of our meal. Would not recommend for the food. Maybe cocktails and appetizers or not at all.

Upon arrival we waited a while for a waiter. When he finally came he stated he wasn’t aware that it was his table. The ambiance is okay...nothing special. The steak was amazing! The food took a while to come out and the waiter stated they had computer issues. They gave us free drinks for the long waits.

Severely under staffed, 2 waiters in the entire restaurant. It was so bad, the hostess had to take orders. Pathetic. Ordered the rib eye on the bone for 2, medium. It was bloody, black and blue. Had to send it back. EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED ! Will NOT GO BACK. PLENTY OF STEAK HOUSES THAT ARE SUPERIOR. Waiter tried his best. All on the owner. BBG WON'T SURVIVE. POOR VALET SERVICE.

■ Good drinks.
■ Nice decor.
■ Some waitstaff inexperienced but very friendly.
■ Pricing is in line with well known steakhouses but BBG isn't as upscale nor as professional, and their steaks aren't on par..it's not miles apart but there's a difference.
■ Overall, it's a good local restaurant place but why go to BBG when you have so many better steak options (morton's, luger's) for roughly the same $. For my money, there's no value going here as opposed to the other choices I've mentioned.
