Great food and Okay Service

The food here was great but the service was not at the level that it should have been at a steakhouse. I don't know if the server thought we were too young or weren't going to tip her or order high priced items, but something was definitely going on.

A celebration meal for my wife. She had lobster. I had Prime Rib. Our server was the absolute best. Her name is Christina and she has been there a while. Christine was upbeat, responsive, caring and most of all helpful. Our overall experience was top notch and the restaurant has a good reputation that showed once again.

I have been waiting for a return visit to The Ringside Steak House. The wait was well worth it. As usual, the service was excellent. They treated us to Onion Rings that were great. We both ordered Steak Delmonico. The complete evening was well worth the return trip.

Bring your credit card, but the quality of the food and service are well worth it. We had a great experience on our last night in Portland here. Though not cheap you will not be disappointed with the food or service. If you like lobster try the Lobster Mashed Potatoes!

I first dined at Portland's original Ringside Steakhouse more than 40 years ago. I have magical memories of it. So, when my wife and I spent this anniversary in Portland, the Ringside was a 'must' on our visit. It is steak heaven!!! It's 'old school' - dark in the bar, the walls decorated with boxing scenes and photos from the... More

After a lot of innovative and highly spiced meals during our week in Portland, we felt like a basic steak place. Salads were good. Entrees were uninspired and expensive. Presentation was lacking, especially at the prices charged. Server was slow. It took him so long to bring my husband a glass of wine that we had finished our meal when... More

The Ringside on Burnside does it again (do not confuse the Burnside location with the eastside location, don't even think about going to the eastside)... in a town dotted with "er satz" imitators with puffed up egos and over priced food the Ringside on Burnside is the real deal... are you looking for that special evening with that special person...

In a town dominated by the trendy and new, Ringside is an old classic of the first order. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary, and this was indeed a special place to celebrate. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly, giving the top-notch care you come to expect. I'm not much of a steak eater, so when I do... More

The Ringside tradition continues. Professional waiters and dressed so. World class onion rings not to be missed. All selections are excellent. Order steaks a bit undercooked. You will not have room for dessert. We always return.

My friends and I were in Portland for a few days and they wanted a steak, so we came here. A great local place. I really loved it. Good service from the moment we walked in. Pricey for sure, as most steak houses tend to be, but the service and the quality were excellent. Had the lobster mashed potatoes -... More
