place to take whole family

salad bar is great. Something for everyone. Steak is top quality. All waitresses and bartenders are extremely friendly. It is the place to go when you just do not want to go to a fancy over fill restaurant

We took our 3 grandsons out for dinner since they are all beef eaters. They ordered various cuts of beef, as did we. The salad bar was good and plentiful but the beef was average at best.

I have been eating here for over 20 years, good food, very good salad bar, don't like the idea of everyone touching and taking a slice of bread from the bread drawer, cant understand why health dept allows this. overall a nice place.

Six of us went to dinner here. The salad bar is awesome...nice & fresh and a great variety from iceberg to Ceasar to field greens and anything you can think of to go on top. The guys had steaks and prime rib and raved about them...tender & very tasty. The ladies had broiled flounder and I for one think the... More

I had received a $100.00 'Gift Certificate' for "What's Your Beef" and I had wanted to use it before it expired. My boyfriend and I decided to go on 10/12. We were seated and I can't say enough about how attentive the wait staff is. We don't drink - so we both ordered two sodas....A customer, at the bar, recognized... More

My girlfriends and I went to this restaurant this past Sunday, 8/23. Two of us had the steak and one had the prime rib....as we were eating my girlfriend who had ordered the prime rib at $29.95 said it was fatty and grisly and she was just pushing the meat around on her plate and not really eating it.

If you're looking for a wonderful steak place, this is it. Great salad bar (keeping it as simple as real cold lettuce and real warm bread does the trick every time) with plenty of selection, and a "pick your own" cut and size of meat is the "unique" part that I like best. The ambiance is old world-ish, with dark... More

Looks aren't everything - remember that. The outside appearance lends to thoughts of 'probably was good back in the day' but once inside you can be assured the standard of care is still there. Waitress was really wonderful - felt like family - and she navigated the menu for us without a hint of annoyance. The steak was truly delicious... More

Next time you are in Rumson NJ make time for a meal or even just a snack and a drink at the bar at What's Your Beef. Quality food, expertly prepared, flavorful and moderately priced. Great ambiance too! I have eaten here so many times with family and friends and we always enjoy the meal. The staff is wonderful too.... More
