It was an okay experience. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. I ordered the steak diane and it was okay, I just don't think it was worth the $29 price tag. My friend ordered the english cut of the prime rib and he indicated that it was a bit chewy as opposed to "melt in your mouth". The decor was very dated. All in all, it was an average experience. I wouldn't have tried it without the groupon.

The food was just OK - the beef was good and all else was below average for a "nice" place. The decor is so dated - 30 years ago it may have been new - and the dinnerware was reminiscent of a diner. The sauces are presented on you plate in plastic cups like a fast food joint. It was all kinda disappointing considering the prices on the menu.

From Our Editors

History is built into The Flaming Pit Restaurant & Piano Lounge building—literally. The historic building was constructed back in the 19th century before it transitioned into a tavern in the 1940s and an Italian restaurant in the late 1970s. Now, the landmark eatery—nestled on the "The Great Road," which travels from the tobacco port of Georgetown through Montgomery county—plays host to lively piano-bar acts every night of the week (7:30 p.m.–11 p.m.) as diners sing along while enjoying upscale homestyle cuisine. Savory meats, such as roasted prime rib and filet mignon, and seafood platters, such as Alaskan king-crab legs and Australian lobster are accompanied by housemade bread and a tossed salad while desserts are baked fresh in the restaurant's onsite bakery instead of over a backyard tire fire.

Even though The Flaming Pit building has a colorful past, it doesn’t show its age because most of the building is new. Still, diners can easily be taken back to the building’s past by gazing at the stone fireplaces, barroom arches, and second-story windows, which double as time-machine portals.
