I came here from out of town and looked for a nice place to eat. It was not the best restaurant I have been to, but it hit the spot.

We strolled in while cruising up the coast. Walked in right in the middle of lunch/dinner time and it was scary empty. 3 of us ordered the prime rib and it was good. Not the greatest I've ever had, but I was satisfied. The service is wonderful. As dinner time neared, the place started filling in. As I people watched,... More

We were there for the early seating. party of 4 with a four year old. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. the whiskey sirlion tips were meh but the sirlion the other two got was very tender and good. The tableside salad bar was interesting and the house chili was good too if meatless. The price for the early... More

Very busy place with good service and prompt seating in a relatively quiet area, which we requested when making our reservation. Unique aspect was a table-side salad bar where you can choose your own ingredients. The steaks were tender, done to order, with little waste. The side potatoes and hot vegetables were good, and there were many other choices-onion rings,... More

I was told by a colleague to try this place and I found the place to be So-so at best. I would think you could find a lot better places for the same price. I don't use Outback Steakhouse, but that would be an upgrade from this place. I had the NY Steak and the steak was cooked OK at... More

This was really our first time here, and were looking forward to a great streak house experience. The menu is small, which i always see as a good sign, because that means they can concentrate on a few things and do them very well. WELL- lets just see. first the good news we went on a Monday night, and were... More

Annually I have to select a restaurant in North San Diego County for our Company Christmas Party. Over the years, Hunter Steakhouse has been one of the most popular places for the party. This year we took 44 employees there for a wonderful evening of fine food and fellowship. As always, the food was excellent and the wait staff was... More

Very disappointed. Prime rib is the only thing they do well and even that's not the best. Skip this one.

The restaurant boasts prime ribs. They shouldn't. It wasn't prime nor did it taste like choice. The room was dark and almost empty at 8PM on a Sunday night. The space seemed used up. I got the feeling the place was on its last legs.
