So, this was my husband and my second time at Stampede. The first time my steak was thin and baked potato was over cooked. We decided to try it again; my 8oz NY Strip was very thin and my baked potato was over cooked again! And the fresh bread sticks, were far from being fresh. I do have to say,... More

Stopped at Stampede for lunch today. (Formerly Joel's Steakhouse). Completely remodeled inside. Smartest thing I've ever seen in a bar/restaurant - there is a ladies restroom and a unisex restroom. Should solve the problem of the long line ladies! The beef was excellent. I had the london broil sandwich with demi glace gravy and my husband had the prime rib... More

We stopped last night for "wing night". From what I hear, the place is usually packed, but last night, it wasn't so busy (it was snowing pretty hard). They were well-staffed and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We ordered the house wings, which is pretty much an "everything" wing and a house salad. The salad was big and...

Not impressed... Service very slow and staff inattentive. We ordered 2 meals the special shrimp and scallops which was soaked with oil from the cheese used and poorly presented. A burger which consisted of a 8 oz patty on a bun, nothing else.... The key to success in the restaurant business is attentive staff, good quality food properly prepared and... More

The atmosphere was right out of the Urban Cowboy without the mechanical bull. The steak was fresh and prepared right and the drinks even better. I stayed in the bar area which had a live band on Wednesday

Great place to get a descent steak. Prime rib was cooked to perfection. Don't get the oysters. $10 for six may seem like a bargain, but they were the smallest I've ever been served. This is the old Joel's steakhouse. Its cleaned up a lot but the service was terrible.

New name, still good food. Nice crisp salad. The place is known for steak and delivers. Very tender meat, very flavorful. Great service, attentive server. A good experience.

I just don't understand for a steakhouse to serve drinks in old plastic pepsi glasses tea tasted like it was instant Onion rings were half cooked had to be sent back no flavor but to Charge $30 for prime rib or a steak you should get some class and use real Glass

This is now Stampede Steak House. The steak was brought to the table with the corners burned(which was fat)but a good restaurant would have cut it off and not served it like that. It comes with only one side and everything else is Ala Carte. Neither bread nor rolls were served. The room we were in was exceptionally cool,several patrons... More

We've traveled past this place for 30 years and never stopped. Yes, the name is changing and under new management, and I'm not able to compare to previous management. We had no idea what to expect. After reading the reviews here we decided to give it a go. The hostess indicated that they had a reunion going on and 2... More
