Old School Steak House

Buried in the downtown section of Orlando just east of little Saigon on Colonial Drive is a wonderful old style steakhouse. It has been around for a while and I believe rebuilt once after a fire. It has a classic menu of beef and other items. Simply tasty beef and served well. If you are looking... read more

The steaks, sides and salads were delicious. Linda's has a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. I was impressed with the retro bathroom that resembled the 20's. We arrived at 4:50 with no reservations. We were seated immediately and enjoyed a couple drinks. By the time we ordered, this place was wall to wall with people and the lounge was also full.... More

We were celebrating my mom's birthday so there were 18 of us including small children and several adults. Samantha was our waitress and she was so attentive and never once seemed overwhelmed; she was awesome! The steaks were so good and tender we could cut them with a fork. It may costs a little more, but well worth it. I... More

We have been to Linda's several times with 40+ snowbird seniors to celebrate everyone's anniversary - many over 50 years. We are always treated well by the staff. Service is quick and efficient. The steaks are always very good and flavorful, although there was a variation in the toughness of some of our sirloins last time. I would willingly return... More

This place is still the best steakhouse in Orlando. Steaks and service are always consistent and their rib eye(my favorite) is fantastic. Most of the other reviews expand on the specifics, but trust me, make sure to go here.

I am nit really a big steak eater but my family loves this place (for their steaks) and I did get the Tbone which was delicious and the only place I will probably ever order a steak again. We have our parents celebrations here and the service is always exceptional. My Dad has been going here for 55 years and... More

I prefer to write a good review and more than 90% of the reviews I write are positive but not this one. For my birthday my husband took me to Linda's. We have been there before and always found it pleasant and delicious. My husband made reservations which are a must and we were seated promptly. My view was looking... More

No wonder that this establishment had been in business for 47 years. I have been going there since it was in the original location at the same spot I believe. Steak is mouth watering, tender, juicy just perfect. Even after moving away from the area I still always go back for the best steak fix.

Our Orlando friends said to meet at Linda's for dinner. It was excellent steak. I split a 12oz steak with my sister. There was not an up charge for that. Side selections are the usual with the possible exception of spaghetti as a side. Go on line to view their menu. Do make reservations.

I had been here a few times prior and was impressed. I took my boss here while attending a convention. Drove over 30 minutes in traffic my boss is a steak house guy so he was skeptical when we pulled up. That all changed when he got his large T-bone. Great flavor, cooked prefect! Service was outstanding. My boss has... More
