Just OK dinner

It was just OK. Steak was overdone. Potatoes were cold. Wait staff didn't come check on us. We probably wouldn't go back.

We have eaten here many times over the past twenty years and have seen the quality continue to decline. This is a shame because we used to drive 30 miles to eat here. Our last experience will be our very last. Overpriced stringy steak with no flavor. Wait time for food was unacceptable and there were only two other occupied... More

I don't normally write reviews so for me to go out of my way to actually write up a review means this really was an unpleasant experience for myself and my family. The drinks, appetizers and the bread were amazing! There's a reason why the lights in this restaurant are so dim, because they don't want you to see how... More

Let's start with the good first. Jalapeno poppers were awesome. In fact they used a different type of jalapeno which made it a bit of a surprise and was very tasty. The dinner salads, although plain, were fresh and tasty as well. Their dinner biscuit w/butter & honey were also pretty good. Now the BAD. All meals are extremely over... More

We love this famous OLD restaurant. It's been popular in Williams for I don't know how many years??? We live about 50 miles away, but always bring friends and family to Rod's Steak House! A visit to the Grand Canyon isn't complete without this stop! Unfortunately we drive over many Sundays, but have to eat elsewhere because it's closed, (bummer).... More

Places change, people sell to new owners etc... We understand all that, still it is disappointing when a place that you vividly remember from your child hood slips into mediocrity. This was once a great steak house. now it is meh at best. Not bad, but far from good.

Food prep was a but slow, but the results were well worth it. Steaks were great and service was good. Prices were reasonable.

The restaurant was set up with a lot of hype. The steaks were decent, but kinda fatty. It was cool to eat at an old timey steak house on Route 66. The fresh made rolls were my favorite of the night.

We were on a one night stopover and our tour guide pointed out this place and recommended it for a steak. We made the mistake of following his tip and had a very poor experience. The draft beer was utter rubbish and was $10 for a small glass! The wine was well overpriced and only average. But the icing on... More

An institution in Williams. Lots of memorabilia. Great beef, burgers and sides. The service was spotty. This was probably due to the Route 66 Car show and the amount of people. My husband has been going there for over 30 years, since he worked in the area.
