Great place for a steak. Very reasonable for steaks and prime rib. Don't go unless you bring your appetite!

I used to go to Stetson's on a rare occasion when they were located in Pendleton. Primarily, it was because I'd get a "hankering" for really good chicken fried steak and Stetson's had the best in Pendleton - by a long shot! Like others have said, the prices seem high for Eastern Oregon for their beef cuts, and for the... More

Newly transferred to Hermiston, OR Stetson's is right off of the main drag. Easy parking and little wait to get in. From the beginning though we didn't get the feeling that we were welcome. I was ignored coming in, then when the host saw me he made sure to deal with two separate server issues before addressing me. Service was... More

In Hermiston: we were their first customers of the day at 430-ish. Owner(?) talking with a woman in the dining room...no welcome or "hi folks...we'll be right there"...just ignored until they were done (only 3-4 minutes but felt very awkward to be ignored.) Server was trying but got seated pretty quickly and was on his own it looked like...with 1... More

This steakhouse just moved from Pendleton to Hermiston so they are still working on the transition. My husband and I went on their 3 rd night open. We had a bit of wait to get seated as a server finally sat us after no one else did. We had already finished reading the menu before we even got asked about... More

Stetson's has always been a stop for us when visiting Pendleton and once again it did not disappoint. Prices have increased but so has beef prices around the country so it's not surprising. Included with your meal is a salad, potato and vegetable. I look forward to returning here next year.

This place has gone down hill. Our meals were overpriced, and more than reflected the recent increase in the wholesale cost of beef. Service was fair. The beef was not of the same quality Stetson's was so well-known for previously. We have been going here a couple times a year for the past 11 years. I am uncertain we will... More

My husband and I decided to eat here to celebrate our anniversary while traveling through the area and were both disappointed. The location is downtown Pendleton and easy to find. Restaurant interior has seen better days. We both ordered prime rib, which was just "OK". It came with mashed red potatoes (good) and CANNED green beans -- really?? Canned green... More

The food was not bad, nice presentation and prompt service. The pricing is over board though. I understand they are moving to Hermiston. Great deal for Hermiston but I do hope they consider bringing the price point down.
