Lots of free parking and plenty of seating. The staff is well trained and attentive. The food is up to par, but no better. It was an OK breakfast but the coffee was not very good.

We visited Nov25,2015 on the occasion of my sister-in-law's birthday lunch. It was not busy at all and yet after placing our order we waited quite a long time for it to be placed on our table. The kitchen is very visible and we were able to see our order was ready, however sat on the counter for well over... More

We were there with a group so I expected delays. We ended up with three different servers because the establishment was very busy! Some ordered onion rings to start as I also did but when our plates were brought there was a big hair in between the two plates...I showed the waitress but she just took the plate and never... More

Went last night for the Turkey dinner Special and was told none left. So we had the derby Steak instead and it was Tough and service was slow. Even though the place was quite empty at the time. Was not overly impressed. It really is hit or miss here lately and last few times have been misses.

Back in the day this place was awesome. I found the portion very small. No coleslaw. And the meat fatty. One of our family members did have the Seafood Chowder and it was good. But personally I wouldn't go back.

I visited Steak & Stein Family Restaurant while on vacation a few weeks ago after my relatives from Nova Scotia had told us we absolutely had to give the steak a try. When we walked in the restaurant was extremely busy, however, we were still very promptly seated by our super friendly server and our drink order was taken immediately... More

Took their Monday special on steak (Two of a Kind), was flavorful but the steaks are a bit small still enough to fill you. Tried one Derby Style and one Charbroiled. I would recommend Derby Style as it has way more flavor to anyone except if you have high blood pressure as that flavor is a bit more salty but... More
