Favorite place for dinner

Absolutely love the food and friendly atmosphere. The steaks are delicious and so much tastier than places that charge twice as much. Never had a bad meal there. The soups are made fresh every day and all are delicious also. They also have some pretty good daily specials if you want something more... read more

Absolutely love the food and friendly atmosphere. The steaks are delicious and so much tastier than places that charge twice as much. Never had a bad meal there. The soups are made fresh every day and all are delicious also. They also have some pretty good daily specials if you want something more casual.

Every dish imaginable is on the menu and every dish is substandard. I think this restaurant remains in business due to loyal neighborhood patrons who really don't care about quality food. In fact, we were there because our 82 year old friend who lives nearby insisted we dine there.

This is one of the favorite restaurants of my brother. It was my first visit. The steaks were good and cooked properly but his was quite thin relative to mine and perhaps a bit more than medium. Mine was fine. My sister-in-law had veal marsala that looked terrific and she said it was very good. Marie, our server, is a... More

Made reservations for the Easter Buffet at G. Subu hoping for a joyful and delicious meal with family instead we got a great disappointment. We knew we were in trouble when we got at the restaurant and there was a long line formed out along the front of the restaurant. Everyone had reservations waiting for the restaurant to seat us....

Food and service can break a restaurant, These will not be issues. They have a balanced menu and the food is excellent. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is excellent. My Rotary Club has a nunber of events there and everyone was pleased. What more can I say?

The food is great. The portions are very large and I always have enough for lunch the next day. Owners are very friendly and we are treated like an old friend and not just a customer. Service is usually excellent and efficient.

I have eaten at Subu's many times when our organization has a dinner meeting there. They do have a varied menu but I would probably not go there on my own. The main dishes whether steak, veal, or seafood are their best feature but do not overcome the deficiencies in the rest of the meal. The pasta always seems to... More

This restaurant always has a great menu with daily specials. Wait staff and owners are always friendly and helpful. We have been to several banquets at this facility as well. They have a great room for parties and a nice buffet setup. Did I mention that they make great drinks. Prices are mid range and portions are just right.

Very nice place. Good food and good prices. The bar was a bit noisy. The dining room was nice and quiet. Mostly a senior crowd the night we were there.
