The food here is good. Nothing super amazing, the cheese sauce is good. Some things were a little greasy, this place has been open for years so they must be doing something right but I personally don't frequent this establishment.

The service is always very good. The food is good standard American. The price is a little high for the food served. I go there a few times per year for many years and the menu seems to be the same. I would love to see some variety and some imagination from the chefs.

I used to love this place. I basically begged my wife to go here based on nostalgia. The family was disappointed, food was pretty aweful and I'm going to take a guess that our burgers were precooked. Will never go back, too many better places in the area. It's a shame because I spent many Friday nights there as a... More

Just ate at the good steer it used to be our go to spot but not anymore. The food wasn't good it all seemed precooked not fresh. It also took forever to get food. The waiter was nice but didn't refill drinks without us asking. It's not cheap either the steaks are priced like normal steak houses between 25 and... More

The Classic Cheese Dream burger was awesome - a burger topped with creamy cheese and onion straws. The sweet potato fries were fantastic too. In addition to the great food, the restaurant has been an icon on the same corner since the 1950s. Ask owner Linda about the circus photos in the restaurant.

the Good Steer has the best burgers and onion straws in Suffolk County, back it up with a shake and your set for the day. Service is friendly and professional. My wife and I have been coming here for years and never had a bad time. It*s a great place to bring the kids, reasonably priced.

The good Steer has been around since the fifties. Like many establishments of that era, it provided and continues to provide good old American Beef. The quintessential steak and frites joint, American style. Their burgers are cooked to order, in our case very rare. They top them with their signature fried onions, as they have for over half a century.... More

I am sorry but I do not mean to be negative. I have lived on Long Island since 1969. I have gone up and down Middle Country Road from many years I have gone to the good steer only twice I remember when they did not accept credit cards. The first time I went there we ordered two steaks unfortunately... More
