We were looking for a good steakhouse to eat nearby and discuss strategies for the next business day. Found this on a GPS search and it worked out just fine. Close by good food, good environment to talk without creating a nuisance in a private meeting. They even offered a few complete dinner packages to choose from at great prices.... More

ALWAYS LOVE THIS PLACE - SUNDAY BRUNCH IN THE BAR!! Jen treats you like a 'Family Member', just about everyone in there is a 'Regular' - everyone knows everyone - Great Food (especially the Prime Rib, Spinach Salad, Muffins/Bread) & Excellent Bloody Mary's, Mimosas,etc - HUNTERS ROCKS!! :)

I'm willing to fly 1000 miles to eat here! When ever I visit California I have to stop and eat here! Steaks are great and always cooked to order, friendly service with a smile, and my drink never got dry. I especially loved the table side salad.

When I was in college, back in the day this restraint was the Hungry Hunter. Some things never change it was outstanding then and it is now. The service was outstanding, the bread is out of this world. The place still packs them in, so eat early. The build your salad is the best and the steaks Awesome. The parking... More

I enjoy a great meal at a nice steakhouse. Hunter steakhouse is a place I like to go and have great conversation with great people. I enjoy their food very much. My husband always gets a nice steak and it's always cooked to perfection. I love steak but their Forest Mushroom Chicken is soooo good. If you like a good... More

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

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
