Good Steaks, nice wine list

They specialize in prime rib but overcooked both on our order. I did enjoy it nonetheless. Service was very good and though they have small wine list, it had several very good wines. Not a 5 star, but a good place for a steak if you're in the area.

Good place to have a steak. Very pleasant, good service, fair pricing, and easy location as near I5 freeway. We had a great time and enjoyed the atmosphere.

Ate here a long time back in the 70's. My brother went to the Local High School, and it was HUNGRY HUNTER then. Same fireplace/lodge feel. Very extensive/interesting menu. They have a table side salad 'lazy-susan'. And Huge Steak choices. I had prime Rib (I never have that) But was torn between that or Filet Mignon with Bearnaise. The only... More

I'm on my second day of diarrhea. Yeah, TMI, I know, but hopefully this gets the owner's attention. The meat tasted sour, like it had been sitting out too long either before or after cooking, then reheated insufficiently to kill the bacteria. The manager adjusted the bill, and apologized, but probably should have taken my contact info to make sure... More

We had an early supper in this restaurant on Sunday . It was so nearly good but just missed the mark on a number of issues First appearance was of a dark & dreary room . However the waiters made up for first impressions . The menu was varied although not stimulating . The food though was very good .... More

we went to Hunter after reading the reviews and decided to go. I had the fillet mignon which was one of the tenderest pieces of meat that I've had in a long time. The flavor was outstanding and my wife had a chicken dish that was very very good. For dessert my wife had the carrot cake which was excellent... More

Just had the most incredible meal and service. Dina was one of the most caring waitress I have ever encountered. Her service was unbelievable. She was not a hovering, but was right there when she needed to be. And the food was awesome. It was one of the best steaks, so tender and cooked perfect.

Hunter is our go to restaurant for a special occasion. We order the filet Mignon steak dinner with the tasty salad bar they bring to you. You get a choice of potato, rice, or veggies for a side. The fresh veggies are perfectly steamed. The homemade squaw bread is delicious. Only veggie we were missing on the salad bar was... More

We've been seeing the sign for this restaurant for quite a while and wondered how it would be. This is Restaurant Week in San Diego County and seeing it on the list, we thought what a great opportunity to give it a try. Are we glad we did. The atmosphere was cozy and the food delicious. Prices are very reasonable.... More

We had the three course meal and it was well enjoyed. It was a more mature crowd but the food was still good and they accommodated the kids well. I would eat here for the set menu price but I am not sure about the regular prices.
