We enjoy trying locally owned places as we travel. We found this place online as we were passing through Nebraska. Food was good, but nothing spectacular. The 24oz porterhouse was cooked unevenly and pecan pie was almost too sweet to eat. Our waitress was awesome!

This restaurant put on a good face, but the fact is that the food was not very good. My husband had a burger with bacon and mushrooms and didn't comment on it. I had a steak salad. The lettuce was wilted, and the other vegetables on the salad were nothing special. The steak on it was pretty good. Overall, it... More

Uncle Ed's is a welcome break from the endless chain restaurants that make up much of Grand Island's dining scene. I have never had a bad steak there, but occasionally a burger or a fish entree will be less than stellar. It has been several months since I dined there, and they may have worked out the kinks. Your best... More

This is a wonderful place for a quiet, romantic date for a great meal. This is a somewhat fancy restaurant that serve an amazing steak. It is more pricey than other steak houses, but well worth the money!

Was not a good experience this time at all. I know that you shouldn't have fish at a steak place but I did and it was the worst. Frozen fish cooked to dryness. Should focus not only on steak but also the rest of the menu if you are offering choices. Friend had steak diane horriblely undercooked. Just to really... More

Working a convention in Grande Island, we thought we would try Ed's. Everyone told us to try the beef and we did. We all ordered prime rib, and a couple appys to start. Service was awful and our table was in the back corner in what appeared the storage area for extra chairs and the place was empty. The shrimp... More

Steaks here were higher than I pay in Las Vegas! Service was slow, and place was dead. Food was average.
