Sizzling Steak in Salem

DH's New York Steak was tasty, but a little tough. My chicken taco salad was excellent, but a little spicy for my taste. The restaurant filled quickly at around 6 p.m. on Sunday, so I am glad we got there as early as we did. Sports TV was playing with the sound off. The sound resonance is poor... read more

Husband and I stopped by here today for lunch. I ordered the nachos and he had the taco salad. Our service was terrific; our server was attentive despite the fact that he was really busy. The atmosphere was pleasant and our food presented very attractively. I was going to share some of Husband's salad, but it was so spicy there... More

I know I've reviewed this restaurant before with not so good results, but the wife wanted to go back and try it again. What a mistake! This restaurant has, without a doubt, the worst customer service of any restaurant we've been to in the Willamette Valley. From the moment you walk in the door all of the staff that you... More

I have eaten here several times, different days and times. The service is great each time, friendly staff whether we are at their table or not, we are always greeted with cheerful people. The food is fantastic! Our favorite is the ribs and sweet potatoes. We get a full rack so we can take some home to enjoy for lunch... More

Always good food and great service. Finding a place to park in the parking lot can be difficult during lunch & dinner hours. Fun mini Golf.

THis restaurant get very busy around happy hour and dinner time but worth the wait, we have been there during lunch also not as long of a wait. The hot wings are so good and crispy if asked to cook them longer and the onions strings are also so good but there is a lot of them. I really liked... More

Not too far and easy to find with nav off interstate 5. Arrived just before noon on a Saturday. Nice updated decor and restroom. Attentive service. Pulled pork sandwich was excellent and I chose a sweet potato instead of fries. It was huge, soft, topped with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar--the best I've ever had and not too sweet. And...

The jalapeno popper rolls are good, the salad was crisp. My steak was way overcooked- a steak house should be able to do a medium rate with their eyes closed. End of story for me.
