Wow, is all I can say. If you haven't eaten at mclins it is a must if u are in the area, there is nothing average about this old church. This man runs a clean kitchen and he knows how to cook a steak anyway you like it, be prepared for greatness. Great family restaunt and a perfect place for... More

Food was pretty good, only had the seafood platter. I just think they should add a surf and turf platter to their menu.

Ricky McLin and his team continue to provide the best food at the best possible price. If you love steak and shrimp, you've found your place. If you like catfish, then McLin's is for you. Of course, there are other things offered but these are my personal favorites. I've lived in the Wirgegrass nearly all my life and McLins is... More

This is by far the best steak house I have ever been. The food may be a little on the expensive side but it is so worth it! This is the only place I will eat steak. Their fried catfish is awesome as well. Very homely people here. Highly recommended for those looking for a casual restaurant with 5 star... More

My first exposure to McLin's was while stationed at Ft. Rucker back in 1978, just a month shy of the birth of my first child... I've logged many miles in the years since, but have always treasured the times I can get back to Daleville; the most recent being in April, when I was privileged to introduce my youngest grandson...

The special was about $19 for the steak, salad, potato and single roll. To get fried shrimp on the side, you had to order the "Half-order" dinner at $8 and leave off the sides. This gets you 8 medium size fried shrimp. The salad was iceberg with a few spinach leaves, a few cherry tomatoes, and a single cucumber slice.... More

We come here very often. They have mastered having the right cut of steak and cooking it to perfection! There crab claws and hush puppies are go good also. One side note when I was there for lunch we received our food right when it was time for them to close. I asked the waitress for hush puppies and she... More

I complained to the owner regarding the unbelievably high noise level in the large dining room. I have been a customer since the restaurant opened in 1968. The food was good as usual but the dining experience is probably the worst I have ever had. There were large parties in the dining area; however, the lack of sound panels and... More
