Best Place for a Business Lunch

The Famous, A Steak House

Opened by Tony and Anna Leahy in 2002 and locally owned to this day, The Famous has been at the top of its highly competitive category ever since. With its comfortable booths, horseshoe bar and polished menu, The Famous is an elegant urban oasis in the heart of downtown.

Offering prime steaks, fresh seafood and more, The Famous considers everyone family and sees lots of regulars in its heart-of-downtown establishment.

It’s fine dining with a casual feel, as well as a family-oriented restaurant, said Bridgett Teresinski, party and events manager at The Famous.

“[When you] walk in the door, there’s a friendly, smiley face. Our staff knows our guests by name and we definitely welcome you,” she said.

The food is great, the servers attentive, the bar well-stocked, and the ambiance exceptional — especially around the bar on Friday night. The restaurant, as well as the building that houses it, now belong to hotelier/entrepreneur Perry Sanders, a longtime customer, and business partner, John Goede.

“I didn’t change a thing when I bought it,” said Sanders, “We had the good sense to be preservationists of Tony and company’s fabulous concept. Exceptional food and high-end yet casual service, in a classy but cool atmosphere. Preserve perfection when you get the rare chance to do so.”
