Can't get past the bathroom smell

The food was ok. The prices were good. The bathroom was horrible. The doors wouldn't shut to lock, the paper towel dispenser wasn't working properly, and there was this awful, strange odor. A good cleaning and some air freshener would be great. The restaurant didn't feel clean either. The floors... read more

My husband used to be a die-hard Steak N Shake fan... but the past several times we have been to this establishment has made us switch to Freddy's as the better alternative. This Steak N Shake is always packed, dirty, and smells like a McDonald's playground. The staff always makes you stand and wait a while before someone comes to... More

We saw our waitress Victoria two times. When she took our order and deliverer our drinks. There was not a salt and pepper shaker on our table and when our order was delivered I had to request napkins and silverware. I was told they were out of salt and pepper shakers?? He brought packets? How do you run a rescue... More

We rolled in around 11pm after traveling from the airport and were delighted to find a "sit-down" restaurant still open (24 hours...woot woot!) The restaurant wasn't too busy and our waiter, Hunter, was very attentive. Our meal was good and pretty inexpensive. We were already eyeing up the breakfast menu for later in our trip (all you can eat pancakes...what,... More

I went for dinner in the last day of school with my daughter. The food was ok, fries were cold. Our waiter was very unresponsive. We wanted to get a milkshake to go after our meal, but after leaving us a check, he never returned. I am here, 2 days later, I have been waiting 19 mins for 2 milkshakes.... More

I agree with other reviews. This was the worst experience I have ever had at a Steak n Shake. Were not acknowledged or seated for at least 20 minutes even though there were only 4 or 5 tables occupied when we arrived but every other table in the house was dirty. After seated we watched the staff turn away everyone... More

We visited this restaurant last week for a late dinner around 10:00 p.m. Everyone was starving as we had just come from purchasing a car nearby and decided to have some good burgers from here to celebrate. Upon opening the door and entering the restaurant, several employees just looked at us and continued doing their work. We were just ignored... More

I am so disappointed with this location of Steak & Shake. I ordered a "turkey club sandwich"(No Bacon) with fries along with an Oreo milkshake. I checked my order before pulling off and what was on my sandwich? 5 pieces of bacon and my fries where not hot. (that's right I counted it) I repeated no bacon 2 times. I... More

This is the absolute worst place to eat. Upon arriving my two sisters and I were seated at a dirty table. When trying to move to another table we couldn't find not one clean table. The manager (older black man that kind of resembles Samuel L. Jackson) came and asked us if we'd like him to wipe down the table... More
