Made it to Nick & Sam's last week for a guy's night out. I haven't done this in a while, so I hadn't had a good steak in a while, but this was far better than I ever remember it. I had the bone-in filet, and although it made a big difference in the flavor, there were no flaws in the steak either. You can go to plenty of reputable establishments and still wind up with a portion of the meat overdone or fatty. The rest of the steak is great, but that small encounter leaves a bad taste in your memory. This steak, this bone-in filet, this was totally worth the upgrade price and then some.
Also ordered were the "Damn Good Fries," which arrived in the form of a heaping pile of seasoned potatos that didn't seem to have an end. For dessert, I split hot fresh doughnuts with the evening's spice of cinnamon.
Aside from that, yes the lighting is really dim. Fine for those like myself who prefer the cave, others are presented a small flashlight for reading the menu. The wine list was expansive and you would have to be a wine nerd or a regular drinker to recognize any of the names. The service was helpful and educated.
Finally, you will likely feel poor if you go here. I don't care what car you drive, it will still suck compared to the Rosso Corsa Ferrari F50 that the valet pulls around for the guy in front of you.
