Great steak!

Stopped at the Beef House with my husband and mother-in-law on the way to Champaign, IL. My mother-in-law had eaten here a number of times and raved about their food and their pies for dessert. Although a number of reviewers had commented on their salad bar and their decor, I found it to be... read more

This is our favorite place to visit when we travel from Ohio to Minnesota. We always time it to hit for lunch or supper. The rolls are wonderful. Their steaks are cooked perfectly. I could eat their broccoli soup every day. I wish they sold it to take home!

We had a family gathering and had a late lunch at the Beef House. The servers did an excellent job of keeping track of the orders and making sure that everyone was satisfied with their food and drink. Large portions, so be prepared to ask for a "to-go" box. The homemade rolls are excellent. This place is a regular for... More

My wife and I went to the Beef House for their Dinner Theatre on Sunday, July 26th. To be honest, the food was ok, but not spectacular or stellar in any way. It was served buffet style and the servers, who are also in the play were excellent. The rolls ARE exceptionally good and I could have eaten them all... More

Had rib eye with mushrooms and it was very good. Place looks and smells the same from when I was a kid. Rolls are good to. Not the greatest modern steakhouse I've been to but good for Covington/Danville area. Unfortunately waitress was absolutely rude, overwhelmed and terrible. Drink refills went 15 minutes empty.. No Good!

Family road trip and I wanted to eat nice, as opposed to fast food. The waitress was super nice. The rolls were really good. The salad bar is lacking. A few vegetables and tons of mayonnaise based salads. Yuck. Salad means vegetables not potato salad not macaroni salad not beans slathered in mayo salad. Gross who eats like that? It's... More

Business traveler expecting good meal at steak house which was rated the best in Indiana (What year?). The restaurant was a throwback to the 1960s. I live near a family restaurant from this era with a similar menu in Ohio, The prices are reasonable at the Ohio restaurant (~60% of these menu prices), the food is much better and it... More

Had a chance to stop by the Beef House on my way to Danville, IL. They have been around since 1964 and the food is great. The freshly baked rolls are a meal in themselves. The buffet is a great deal for lunch. Save room for their pies. I will be sure to stop by there more often. Close to... More

Go for the Sunday Specials! More food than one can eat. VERY fresh salad bar - not extensive, but that is not why you came to the Beef House! Roast Beef dinner with salad, sides and dessert was about $18 and overwhelmed the plates. Go VERY hungry. Beef was very good, Potatoes excellent, veggies and sides fine. We didn't get... More
