Steakhouse
The Caucus Club, located in the Penobscot Building, is an historic, stylish art deco masterpiece featuring two distinct dining spaces, historic bar and live Jazz. The front entrance leads guests to the elegant front dining room with the stage being the focal point. The back entrance leads to the dark and moody back room and bar with space for mingling, cocktails and dining. Adjacent to the bar entrance is the Caucus Club Kitchen, fully viewable from the hallway of the Penobscot building.

The menu centers around the in-house dry-aging room, yielding Prime Steaks and Chops expertly cut by owner/butcher George Sboukis. The balance of the menu features seafood and eclectic dishes that change with the seasons. Lunch has its own unique offerings, and the Bar offers distinct offerings for Happy Hour. An extensive wine list is housed in a state of the art cellar with private lockers.

Dress code is business casual at a minimum, and is strictly enforced. Please dress accordingly

This was the second time my wife and I had a great dinner at the Caucus club. I started out with the lobster bisque soup, it was excellent. The bread for the table was fresh and hot. (That's important to me) I then ordered the filet mignon, garlic mashed potatoes and some sautéed mushrooms. I wanted the filet cooked medium well and it was perfect. Melt in your mouth perfect. My wife had the New York strip with asparagus. Everything was cooked correctly and very satisfying. We took some food home for the kids because we couldn't finish it all, but we tried. The staff was very polite and helpful and I greatly appreciated the piano player taking my requests. I requested a favorite song of my Uncle who recently passed away. My wife and I toasted him and talked about how much he guided me in my life. Thanks to the staff at the Caucus Club for making the night great. We will definitely be back soon.

The food was good our waiter on the other hand was MIA for most of the night, other waitresses had to refill our water and pack our food to go. It was literally 20 min each time he returned to our table.

Our birthday celebratory meal at the Caucus Club was great. Although we were seated right next to the entrance, the ambience was very nice. The food was excellent, only surpassed by the service - Daryl was attentive and prompt, and entertained all 6 of us with his table-side creation of the Caesar salad. I highly recommend the Caucus Club for any special occassion.

We felt as though the service from the wait staff was average. Nothing above a regular night out unfortunately. For such a beautiful club, the experience could have been elevated from a 6-to a 10 if the waitress made us feel appreciated. The initial greeting from the podium, the hostess was very nice.
We arrived on time, proper attire, and happy to tip above the customary 15%, which we did. Going forward we would probably do the same, but hope that this level of service might be addressed, and improved. When customers spend 5-600 on dinner, it’s the very least that you would hope for.
Thank you, and I hope this will help you for the future.

We had an amazing experience across the board. Manager was very accommodating and friendly. The steaks we had were cooked perfectly and Alex ,quite frankly, might have been the best server we’ve ever had. He showed us a phenomenal time and guided us through the menu like a pro. Can’t wait to come back!

I cannot believe I've missed the Caucus Club all these years! It was my first experience, and now consider it my favorite high-end restaurant. My filet was one of the best I've ever had. Darryl, our server, was superb (obviously experienced). The piano in the background was delightful. I can't wait to go back.

The experience was really nice. We had the meatballs as an appetizer and they were Outstanding. Ordered Filet and Porter House for dinner with baked potatoe and brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts were ok- a little too charcoal tasty. But had a great time, the music & ambience was exceptional.

Absolutely awful!! It was my daughter’s 19th birthday and she and her girlfriends were SO excited to go to The Caucus Club downtown. I arrived a little after them because my husband is in the hospital. They called to tell me they were shamed out loud in front of people for their clothing. We will not be back, and we are telling our friends and family.

For $75 the steak was not worth it. The Mac and cheese side as well as the Brussels sprouts side, both were very bland and underwhelming.

Awesome wait staff.. i ordered a lemon drop and it was horrible … i ordered Kansas City medium well and it was medium rare. Sides were good. I got full off of bread and water. Definitely too expensive for quality of food.
