The servers were attentive, the menu was extensive. We had the special, steelhead over spinach...very good. The salad bar was good but could have been maintained a little better. So full we didn't have room for dessert, darn it.

Came for lunch, got the Tritip sandwich. It was $10 and included fries, unlimited soup & salad bar. Soup was just ok, salad was basic. Tritip was delicious, flavorful, juicy, thin sliced piled high on a chibatta roll with a touh of garlic butter. The sandwich alone was worth $10. The fries were seasoned and crispy, excellent compliment to the... More

I know this is a steak house, but sometimes you just want soup and salad. So we had the salad buffet and the french onion soup of the day. It was a cold day outside, and the soup hit the spot. Great staff.

I came in for a holiday lunch with extended family, to catch up. We all ordered burgers, salads, or tri tip plates. Store front atmosphere with casual seating, but oh, such great food. I had the tri tip plate with green beans and salad. Food was prepared just right and beef very tender. Wow, great food with moderate prices. You... More

I have eating here on several occasions but tend not to return mainly for a few reasons and that is because their prices are very high and their atmosphere feels like I am in a very low end soup kitchen. But I am paying a very high price for their food and their salid bar has a lot to be... More

The staff just don't care. Went there and I could never understand why people who come in later than us were served faster than us. We walked out on our third visit because we were not seated even though there were only two tables filled. I say we're were pretty good people who don't complain, always wearing a smile, not...

My family always gets the tri-tip dinner for a take out meal when we visit House of Beef. It includes corn, chili, a loaf of garlic bread, and a 2 liter of soda (of your choice from what's available). The meat is fantastic every time-- perfectly cooked and so tender. The corn is just corn on the cob, nothing special,... More

We wanted to try this restaurant but had heard mixed reviews. We had a tritip dinner to go which included a loaf of garlic french bread, 2 ears of corn, chili, and a 2 liter of soda. Tritip was awesome! Good rustic bread, and good chili. We will be returning to sample more of the menu!
