This restaurant is the same as it was the day it opened. The menu has lots of items and the portions are always large and the food is O K, but nothing exciting. If what you want is a hamburger, salad or big sandwich then its O K The food is certainly not for anyone trying to watch their weight.... More

Friends recommended this place, so I drove down from my hotel in a Highland to see what all the excitement was about. I had a ribeye steak that was so-so. Steaks should not be allowed to be cooked on a flat grill. The shrimp cocktail was tasty and fresh. But, I must say their loaded bake potato was awesome. It's... More

Low lighting, plenty of large comfortable booths but not necessarily a quiet, intimate place to enjoy a fairly-priced steak dinner. Husband enjoys the liver & onions and their house steak served with your choice of steak fries or baked potato. We've always thought the food good, portions generous and prices reasonable. Plus the servers have always been efficient and friendly.... More

This is a very nice family venue. The service is good, its clean, the portions are large, and it quality food. Let's be honest this is a wonderful place that you are paying $16 for a 16 oz T-bone. Don't expect a high end steak house but rather a family friendly restaurant that servers your weekly dinning needs.

I have always had good experiences here. Friendly staff and great prices. For the price you cannot get a much better piece of meat.... I have had lesser meat at many more expensive restaurants. Its not fancy just a great place to take a family and get a decent meal.

When I moved to Jurupa Valley area in April, I came across this restaurant. It is wonderful! The steaks are always cooked appropriately; the presentation is nice; the employees are friendly. The prices are comparable to other steak houses. We now come here approximately twice monthly.

Good food in an old 70's style restaurant. Steaks are pretty good and come out sizzling, a la Ruth's. Good sized portions and the staff is always friendly. Not gourmet, just good.

I use to love the food here. The Stockyard was a favorite of mine. However, after the miserable experience I had tonight I will never go back. We get seated right away which was good, the busser took our drink order and the drinks came back and the way he served them the drinks were all over the place on... More
