they were very rude.

We ordered a three ounce steak and a salad which we had done many times before. This time we were told that they would let us get away with it this time but next time we would have to get the full meal. We are seniors and steak and salad was just perfect. Needles to say there won't be a... read more

I would rate this up there with the old Bonanza restaurant's that use to be around, Fair prices and fair quality for what your paying. My stepson enjoyed it because you could get steaks added on for $3 at a time mind you they weren't very big but they were tasty, This is more for family's on a tight budget... More

We had a retirement function at Steak and Stein and the event went well. Everybody seemed happy with the food and the service was great with one exception. The servers were too slow getting desert orders so they did not sell any deserts. Their loss of approximately 54 possible desert sales and the sad part is they have great deserts.... More

Portions are small, dishes are not clean, too loud and generally if you like good food this place has food that is on the low side of average.

I'm pretty sure I've reviewed Steak & Stein before. I've been going to this restaurant since it was over on Tacoma Drive. I am so disappointed with the meal we had. We've had up and down meals here before, but this was really really bad. The service was slow to begin with. Once we were seated, staff walked by us... More

I've been going here once a month or so for twenty years with both of my elderly parents until my mother passed away. Then I started taking my father and my son. I work with a lot of 50-somethings and have recommended this restaurant to many baby boomers looking for a place to take their senior parents. Older people seem... More

Breakfast is always hot and made fresh. I never walk away hungry. I recommend the omelette stuffed with veggies. Nice family atmosphere.

The food is hit or miss usually, however when I go I usually enjoy my experience. This time was the worst in the 35 years I've been going there. My meal took too long, when it came it was cold and not at all what I'm use to. The worst though was the argumentative waitress, full of excuses. I ask... More

Dined here with my mom and son this past weekend. Seated quickly, not over busy at this time. My son always gets the breaded chicken burger which is a good sized sandwich, and he is always happy with it. Mom and I shared some nachos and a bloomin onion. They do nachos quite nicely here, and the onion was good... More

Went to Breakfast with a friend, first time for us both. I ordered Eggs Benedict, soft egg, she ordered, hard eggs with hers. She got the soft, i got the hard, then the waiter came back with 2 hard eggs on a plate, and told my friend, they gave her the wrong egg. Hello...you also gave me the wrong egg.... More
