We have visited the Steakhouse on several occasions and it is always good. We arrived around 4:45 and had about a half hour wait. We have never been when it has not been busy. The menu offers several choices and the atmosphere is open. The service was good and the food was prepared as ordered. The only thing I would... More

Found a parking spot quickly, and the place was jammed with customers. We were given a 90 minute wait, and it was every minute of that...BUT we were also told... More

We had 8 at our table and the food was great, the rub on the steaks was so tasty and the lines getting into this restaurant at 4:00p.m. on a Saturday was a reason alone to know we were in for a treat. Great wait staff, everyone enjoyed their dinners from scallops to salmon to steaks to pasta all was... More

Have been at "The Steakhose" several times and food always good. Excellent steaks and chowder is wonderful. A little pricey but good service and atmosphere.

Have a few drinks while you wait to be seated. This is one of the best places to eat. Ask for the salad dressing on the side.

Another great scrumptious meal. Staff always hustling and bustling including floor managers. Awesome selection of dinners. We never miss the Steakhouse during our visit to southern Maine.
