We were traveling and saw the tripadvisor review - stopped for the evening meal. Food was excellent, simply served in a diner style environment. Servers were energetic and knowledgeable of the broad menu. The food deserved a nicer china, more comfortable booths, and a more relaxing choice of background music. The prices would have matched a new environment; seemed high... More

I ate here for a business dinner today. Nice atmosphere and we were able to easily have a conversation. They have the BEST steak in Sanford. Period.

We have been there twice now. The wait staff is very attentive. Wonderful food, all the way from appetizers to dessert. We recommend the pork chop, salmon, and for dessert the gooey bar.

Wait for food was over an hour and a half. Arrived at 7:00pm. Food finally arrived at 8:45pm. Wait staff gave the reason for the delay on another table and we overheard them telling the other table our group was the reason for the delay on their food. Food arrived warm but not hot. Menu was overpriced across the board... More

Although this restaurant is promoted as being a BBQ restaurant this is not your usual BBQ restaurant. I would classify this place as being an upscale BBQ restaurant that offers both BBQ and non BBQ selections on the menu. The menu includes fried chicken, pan seared Salmon, and other items. The atmosphere is warm, inviting, and offers seating at tables,... More

Took two clients to the Steele Pig after a day playing golf nearby. We were late for our reservation but they seated us with a smile. Waitress came over right away and asked to get our drink order. We ordered some cocktails and they came promptly. They were poured the way they should be and we ordered another round. We... More

The Steel Pig is wonderful. You have to try their Shrimp & Grits. WOW I don't like Grits, but this dish is excellent.

I took three out-of-town friends to the Steel Pig a few weeks back. Although I live in Sanford I have only been to the Steel Pig a few times. They recently changed their menu and we were looking for something new to try. Good choice. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was pure Southern. I had the shrimp and... More
