Food was pricey for average fair-- although the appetizers seem to be the most hit for everyone. Onion rings, n chicken livers were gone quickly. Main course were not very savory for the price charge. Had sea bass an was told it was fresh but was a little fishy and plain seasoned for $29 . Probably would not go back... More

This is a great restaurant to take company to. There is a wide selection of dinner entries and the atmosphere is quite good. Even with a large group you can still hold a conversation with those across from you. If you happen to like onion rings, you might want to check it out. The exterior of the building is not... More

The meal we had at J. Bruner's Steakhouse was the best we had in a 4 day stay in Missouri. The atmosphere is nothing special, typical mom and pop steak house however the food is excellent. My husband had a filet and lobster combination and I had a KC strip and both were very good and well prepared. He raved... More

Walking distance from our hotel. Food and service was good. It was a typical supper club. Good steaks and seafood. Nothing stood out but was overall a good experience.

My wife and I have been together for about 8 years; this whole time she has been bragging about the food at J Bruner's. Recently, we had a vacation at the lake and decided to eat at this establishment. It was a huge disappointment. The Prime Rib soup had a good taste; however, it was full of gristle, the steak...

They are pricey but the quality of the food and service is worth it. Our server was extremely nice and very knowledgeable about the restaurant and menu. We both got KC strips and they were great. My husband's was over cooked a bit but they quickly cooked another at the right temp. We would definitely return!

Service was great and the food was good but prices are high. The building isn't anything to rave about and neither is the atmosphere. We went for our anniversary and everyone was very nice....even a great dessert. So go have a great meal but plan on spending at least a 100 for 2 ppl.

The food is good but way over priced. Everything is served individually. The restaurant is actually an old house next to a gas station on the old highway. With no windows! The TVs are programmed to show a fake fish tank. Not sure how this place passed the Handicapped Laws. The atmosphere and the prices don't match! The original chef... More

We arrived on a what seemed a slow evening. Service was prompt and courteous. They seated our large party of 11 quickly in a room by ourselves. The decor is late 70's/early 80's. Very dim lighting and dark wood paneling. There are a couple of flat screen TVs that are projecting fish (like aquariums). Being a steak place they recommended... More
