We had graduates from Duke and UNC to celebrate and were delighted with their special cocktails of the evening. Wait staff attended to our every need. Each course was sublime. Once you enter their doors, you are transported to culinary heaven. Do not let their location in a strip mall deter you. It made for a spectacular celebration dinner for... More

Every time I'm in Chapel Hill i enjoy a fantastic dinner and great service at Bin 54. Last week my colleagues and I dined at the bar and worked our way around Bin's nicely balanced wine list. If you like wagyu beef, Bin 54 doesn't disappoint in preparation, flavor and portion size. After five or six dinners over the last... More

I probably am in the top 5 or top 2 all time visitors to this steak house. Eat there at least 15 times or more per year. It is a favorite of all of our traveling financial institution guests, whether Wall STreet firms, or Boston, or elsewhere. Many eat at competitors all the time, including Ruth's Chris, Flemings and Morton's.... More

This is a nice restaurant, along the lines of a Ruth's Chris, but not as good IMO. The service was friendly but a wee bit slow. Food was good, but not good enough for the price...as I haven't been back since.

Bin 54 has a beautiful, upscale atmosphere without being stuffy. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the extensive wine list and menu. The scallop appetizer was delicious! Our steaks were cooked to perfection and came with a choice of "condiment" to compliment the taste. I had Blue Cheese Butter. The cool, savory taste with a medium rare filet... More

Our daughter booked an early dinner for approximately 20 family members and friends which took place on their outdoor veranda. Very enjoyable atmosphere, excellent service and an outstanding meal. Thank you Bin 54!

Husband wanted a steak! Was a little concerned about the other recent reviews citing substandard service. Wow were these folks ever misguided! This was a superb meal in a upscale warm comfortable setting: all in all a most memorable evening. Everything we ordered was delicious and served simply allowing the food to shine. Note: Please respect the dress code. The... More

This is a popular restaurant in the Chapel Hill area specialising in steak. We called in without a reservation during restaurant week to be met by an attitude of " you have to be joking" from the young lady at the front desk. This time we had a reservation and the young lady perfunctorily showed us to our seats without... More

I take that back. She had no idea what she was doing unless you were her friend. A guy got me a wine as the lady was useless. I asked the lady 3 times for a menu and she failed . In the end due to awful service I left. Now friends of hers came, sat, had drinks, food and... More
