This is truly a one of a kind steak house. There are some other great ones in the Pasadena area, but this is the original. The atmosphere is exactly how you'd want a steak house, dark mahongy wood, low lighting, and burgundy seats. There is a great bar that plays sporting events and is cluttered with local sports memoribilia, but that's besides the point. The steaks are fantastic, and always cooked to perfection. The Pasadena Peppercorn is fantastic. They also make the best baked potatoes that I have ever had (and the biggest), and when they are brought out, your waitress will mash it and add anything else you like to it. The wine selection is also very good. A good secret to know about, ask for the fried pickles. They aren't on the menu, but they will make them and they are a great way to start off the meal.
Pros: Atmosphere is perfect, the food is wonderful and the parking is easy with the valet
Cons: Pricey, but you'd expect that from a great Steak House
