"Hit the spot"

The parking lot was packed on the Friday night that my wife, daughter and I went and we were expecting a long wait but it only took 15 minutes to get seated. The salad bar was awesome and the rib eye I had was great. The service was very good and the server was nice. We would go back again.

We have tried 2 Cattlemen's locations, and just find them to be average at best, compared to other steak places. The best thing you can say is that their salad bars are above average.

Cattleman's Roadhouse serves aged Angus Beef, usually found in white tablecloth restaurants. Most other casual steakhouses don't have the quality steaks we serve. I eat at other casual steakhouses to try the competition, and always can't believe they get away with serving what they do! I'm glad you liked our signature salad Bar, but sorry you felt we were average.... More

The food was great with lots of options. The staff was very friendly and always asking what they could do to make our dinner better. Family friendly.

Stopped along our trip. Ribs and burgers delicious. Kind of a chain feel but prices matched the food well. Staff was friendly and efficient. Not an every day spot but works as a travel stop.

Large menu, reasonably priced, easy access to interstate. Server was very busy but took time to direct us into town to buy needed items. Do not let full parking lot keep you from going in. We thought there would be a long wait but we're seated immediately.

The buffet is one of the best around. I could make a meal just out of the salad, but the tobacco fries were great if you are not health minded. (No real tobacco in them) lol

After reading the reviews we gave this place a try. I was not impressed with anything other than the waitress. I thought the flood was blah and very over priced. I was kind by giving 3 stars...think that was because the waitress was so friendly.For the $76 (including tip for 3 of us) I spent I could have had a... More

Cattleman's Roadhouse is a locally owned steakhouse. We serve premium beef usually served in white tablecloth restaurants, certainly not like Ponderosa. I am sorry you didn't think we were a good value. We don't try to be the least expensive, but to put great quality on the plate for a good price. I am happy you had great service. I... More

Great steak place with the option to add a large salad bar to any meal. Our group was in the area for a cattle show and the waitress did an awesome job in explaining many things we were not familiar with. She was very welcoming and informative.
