Vegetarian visits steak house

My work colleagues choose this restaurant. I was pessimistic as it's a steak house and I expected veggie options to be extremely limited. Staff were very helpful and I found myself with a type of veggie tapas made up from the salads and side dishes. It was really excellent. A pleasant... read more

Big Horn restaurants are quite many in Norway. It is not a fine dining or maybe the best steaks but in Kristiansand for instance I have had really good steaks in Big Horn Steak House. I had the same expectations in Bodø but the meat was not tender like it should be even though you order it as rare. Also... More

Had to wait for a while for a seat and the food was good. Actually better than good but not up to very good. The meat was cut differently but done exactly as ordered and the staff provided reasonable service

It used to be a great place, but now its hardly mediocre... The waiter greeted us and gave us a nice table. The restaurant was half full. Menus came quick, and we got a card that specified what side dishes and sauce, etc. We wanted. And this is where I personally started to dislike the place. What was the waiters... More

Our experience is not good. We were group of 5 friends and 3 of us got cold meat. After our claim they have got new meal, but no fork and knife. One of us ordered his steak medium rear, but all steaks they made the same way - something more then medium. Our "Horn potatos" (big potato baked in aluminium... More

Part of a national chain of Big Horn restaurants, this one caters both for individual guests and fairly large groups, with a variety of dishes, starters and side dishes. Friendly and expeditious service. I've visited it several times with local groups and look forward to coming back.

BIg horn has a menu where you can specify all details of your meal, depending on whether you like your meat well done or rare, the type of vegetables and the way you want your potatoes. So basically you get what you want. I was pleased with the all the food except the meat- which was OK - but that... More

My girlfriend and I took the combi appetizer and later the combi main course. Together with the coke we paid nearly 1000 NOK. Although the meal was fine, we found this to be quite overpriced. The service staff didn't talk Norwegian but only English. However, they were friendly and professional. The facility is neither romantic nor typically for a steakhouse.

This is a nice steakhouse. We visited with a large group and the serving was very efficient. The steaks are large (at least in my mind) with the smallest steak being 150 gr. The cook does know how to prepare his steak. Nobody from our group was complaining about the food.
