After walking around a bit, we settled on Cuts as it looked fairly new and was off the main touristy path. We were seated right away in the main dining room next to the fire place. The decor was very upscale and our server informed us several times how new she was, as was the restaurant itself.
Classic steak fare and sides are offered, but I chose a house special - Shrimp & Grits. This preparation of garlic sauteed shrimp with tomato and scallion on top of cheddar grits was clean, flavorful, and probably the best version of shrimp & grits I've ever had. I devoured my plate.
Overall, the quality of food was impressive but the service needs improvement. Little things stood out that need to be worked on, such as notifying of the night's specials before everyone has already ordered, knowing when to clear plates, presenting new silverware, etc. Having been open only a couple months, their groove will come with time. Cuts Steakhouse is sure to be a hot during the warmer months as well, as they have a nice sized outdoor seating area.
