Steak over open pit fire!

If you don't won't steak don't go. The place is very small and rustic, but the steaks are terrific. There's limited seating. You can watch your steak being cooked over the open fire. Servers are friendly and attentive. Great value!

Quaint little place. My wife had the steak burger and sweet potato fries, and enjoyed it. I had the steak, shrimp and chicken combo salad. Very plain. 2 quarter slices of tomato, 1small cucumber slice. No croutons, but they made up for it with lots of lettuce. The prices are a bit high. Not sure if we will go back,... More

This little hometown place is worth your visit. I live about 45 minutes away and past several steakhouses to get here. Its small, its personal and the steaks are seasoned to perfection. A great date night getaway. Nothing to fancy but definitely a nice place to eat.

Cheryl's is definitely not fine dining but is just fine for a night out. The menu's are written on paper bags or something like that. The menu is limited if you want something besides steak. The steak is good but not great. The do have beer. Here is the BIG problem: the open pit where they cook the steak is... More

We were on our way to another restaurant for dinner when we passed by Cheryl's and saw quite a few cars in the parking lot. We pulled into the lot and saw what looked like mostly local license plates. We'd rather eat at a local favorite than a chain. The place was pretty full at 7 PM during the middle... More

I've eaten here many times over the years. I've tried their filet and NY strip several times and the quality of the cut can vary widely. It took a while to figure out, but my experience is that the large ribeye is the only consistently good steak available here. However, it is VERY good. There's a good deal of fat... More

Best ribeye steak we've eaten in a long time. Excellent service too. "I'll be back", to quote Arnold.

A friend of ours recommended this steak place and we were not disappointed. It is a small place and our party of 6 had to wait to be seated, but the wait staff and food are excellant. Prices were reasonalble. This is not a "fine dining" experiance but just really good food.

My wife and I decided to eat here for a date night. I had read some reviews, and the majority were good... Well, I have to disagree. The wait staff was friendly, but seemed overworked. We both ordered steaks- mine with vegetables and soup, hers with baked potato and soup. The soup was plain, nothing good or bad about it,... More
