Good family dinner

First off, I loved the fact that the cut and weighed your steak and you could say what piece you wanted. The salad bar was yummy and the waitress was very good to us and attentive. The steak was good, but I have had better, there was really no flavor. Nice area, I would go back again but... read more

My wife and I enjoy eating at the bar with a couple of glasses of wine and talking to the to all the people there. The food is good and it is not over the top expensive . Liz is a great bartender and is very welcoming . :-)

This place has consistantly the best steaks anywhere...keep peter luger and ruths chris and mortons....this is monmouth countys best kept secret. The owner cuts your choice of type of steak and cooks it to your taste, the wait staff is the same for years, bartenders are very welcoming, sometimes there is a long wait, but its so worth it...they also...

Met friends for a party. the bartender was very nice, hostess was accommodating since we were late and the waitress was very nice. Salad bar was just good nice selections for a starter. Bread selection was good. most of the guests had steak and lobster combos. I would have liked more selection of cuts. I had the NY 11 oz... More

A while back I wrote a review of Neal Michaels Steak House. I raved about their food and service. They rank up there with What's Your Beef in my opinion. This past Saturday was my birthday and my family wanted to take me out to my favorite restaurant for dinner. Uh-oh, I had to choose between the two. I weighed... More

We sat at the bar and ordered a beer and ribeye steak. The place was just finishing its dinner rush and the bar was half full. The bartenders were very slow and distracted. He served us two warm beers in 12 oz. mugs , not the usual cold pint glasses most places serve. The salad bar was dirty with butter... More

My Favorite! I've been eating there for years. Great steaks at a reasonable prices. They cut and cook the stakes right in front of you. Great salad bar. I love the stuffed shrimp. Great decor. All of the chain restaurants must've went here and copied the cool style. Small and cozy. Nice bar area. Across the street from a beautiful... More

We walked in to what looked like a cute dining establishment, and were greeted by a weirdly tiled salad bar next to a sign listing menu items. The sign was made using letters you would find on a garage sale sign, and were not even put on using a ruler. Looked sloppy. Then we sat down, the smell was awful.... More

Doesn't look like much on the outside but inside Wow! great decor, service wonderful and food great. Little funky -- you take your bill to the chef and order direct and then they bring it to you. But anytime I am in Rumson -- I will go here!!
