On vacation we had to try to get a decent priced steak to we came to Longhorn as all the local places seemed to be much higher priced. Well, we made a great choice. We saw the parking lot was full, but were seated within prob 15 mins. Not bad. Our waiter was Oscar, he was delightful and so accommodating.... More

Excellent meal here, steaks fantastic and cooked beautifully. Some great sides, spinach with Parmesan was very very nice . Service a little slow but it was busy. I had NY strip and was Superb. Wife's filet mignon was excellent too. Didn't like the steak sauce, too spicy for a good steak!

Our server, Allison, made our night. She steered us to great menu choices, suggested good drink choices, and just made everything enjoyable. Not the kind of service you experience at a place like this. We'll always ask for and wait for Allison. PS - the steaks were made just right and tasted very good.

We went for bar bites and drinks. We like this bar - cozy, but with enough stools that you don't have to wait for service. We really liked the crab and artichoke sampler and our chipotle peach margaritas were a pleasant surprise. Our bartender was a little taciturn - not a Debbie Downer, but not exactly a sparkling conversationalist. We... More

Steak was not so good. Atmosphere & service was good. Been to others in this chain but this one was a disappointment.

Our salads were wrong, the soup was wrong, and the steaks were not cooked as we requested. Manager Shannon did come out and address the issue but this is not up to usual longhorn standards. Our server never smiled and he seemed put off by most of our questions and requests. We felt bad for asking him for anything and... More

Four of us had dinner at The Longhorn and we all enjoyed our dinners. I had the ribs, my wife had the salmon and the other two had a steak. We used the call ahead seating option and were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival. The service was good, the salads excellent and the dinners very good and fairly... More
