Really good food, very dated establishment.

We were looking for a steakhouse in Oceanside. We found this place on trip advisor with decent reviews. When we got there it was a little scary maybe because it was dark and old and had all the Halloween decorations which for a steakhouse I thought was very odd. Steak was delicious cooked and... read more

What can I say? This is the best place to go have steak and chicken. I have always gotten the Forrest Mushroom Chicken. It's perfectly cooked and the mushroom sauce is excellent. Under the chicken if you have it the first time there's s nicely buttered wedge of toast that is a great compliment to your meal. I can't say... More

We were celebrating our Uncle's 87th birthday and had made plans two months in advance. I haven't eaten there before so not sure what to expect. The table side personal salads were great - loved it. My dinner was fair, the baked potato was good, the meat and vegetables were undercooked - carrots were almost raw. We had ordered a... More

Just off the I5 freeway this place is a favorite with locals and tourists alike. The exterior of the building is unprepossessing. Inside you feel more like you have walked into a New Jersey Mafia establishment than a Southern California restaurant. Low light levels , lots of dark wood and cream paint give an overall gloomy atmosphere. The place boasts... More

I chose the Caesar Salad, Tri-Tips and Loaded Baked Potato. It also came with fresh Squaw bread and honey butter. The Tri-Tips were covered in sautéed mushrooms & onions. The portions were generous. Yum Yum I love the dark wood atmosphere. It reminds me of steakhouses in Wisconsin. Could use a little TLC though. This is a great place for... More

We travel to Oceanside at least once a year and we always have dinner here one night. We usually go with the kids and grandkids as a tradition but this year it was just the two of us. We love the salad here. It is brought by the server and they give you a selection of about 10 different items.... More

We selected Hunter Steakhouse based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. It is a romantic place next to the I-5 Interstate on Vista Way. The steaks were prepared to perfection as was the rest of the meal. The service was great! We will return to try other inviting menu items. The table salad looked interesting.

We surely enjoyed taking our family for a yummy juicy steak dinner. The salad and dressings delicious. Sauted mushrooms melted in our mouth. The homemade squaw bread went well with our dinner. Our family raved about the dinner the next day!

Hunter Steakhouse has been around for awhile but the food is consistent and the staff and warm and friendly. It is one of those places where everyone knows your name...so to speak! Whether eating in the downstairs bar or upstairs in the main restaurant, the hostesses, wait staff, bartender and even the clients are friendly. It is one of my... More

Very good steaks and accompaniments, especially the build your own salads. Very good onion rings too. We got a great waitress and a relatively quiet table. My pet peeve: no soft drinks or prices listed on the menu.
