Great Steaks, Tremendous Value

I used to pass this place every Wednesday on my way to work. From the outside, meh! Inside is the old standard steakhouse atmosphere. The menu is rather extensive for a place this size. I have always been satisfied with the portions and delighted with the flavors. I'd go there again and again.

My first time at Garlock's and I was simply amazed by every aspect of the food, hands-down best stuffed banana peppers and steak in my life! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Can't wait to return :)

I have always wanted to try Garlock's and we got our chance recently with relatives. We had dinner reservations on a slow Thursday night at 5:30 P.M. and did not get out of there until 7:30 P.M. Slow kitchen plus only 1 waitress is not acceptable. My $36 Prime Rib was too big (no smaller options) plus it was undercooked... More

Fantastic!!!!!! Everything from the time you enter to the time you leave, you are family!!! Everyone is friendly and the waitresses explain all of the entrees. The steaks and the Prime Rib is so juicy and tender!! We LOVE this place and have been coming here for over 10 years!!

I was starved when I entered. Their philosophy is to have a leisurely meal. So it took a long time to get my salad and mussels appetizer.

My sister and I stopped by the Garlock restaurant on a Friday night just after 8 pm. The parking lot was full - a good sign I think. We were escorted to a nice table right away. We decided to order a 5 course meal for $20. The meal included salad, seafood bisque soup, baked haddock, scalloped potatoes, garlic toast... More

Garlocks has been around for quite some time. The food here has always been pretty good. It's geared towards an older crowd.

My husband and I have eaten here in the past and have noticed a decline in service. We arrived around 6:30 pm and were told the wait was 5 minutes. We took a seat at the bar and ordered a drink and were seated 15 minutes later. This was fine with us. The problem we had was from the time... More

After 40 years of driving by Garlock's on our semi-annual journeys to see relatives in the area, I finally had an opportunity to have dinner there. It was early on a Saturday and we didn't have reservations, but we were able to be seated right away. They had a mini surf n turf special (6 oz filet and 5 oz... More

The outside of this restaurant may be off putting as it looks like an old dive. The inside is quite charming. The food includes steaks, seafood, chops and fowl. We came here for our anniversary. My husband had the surf and turf. His steak was supposed to be medium well and it was medium rare to rare. It was also... More
