Like every other, but fine

even our vegetarian people could get something to eat here. I like the vegetable soup. Hamburgers are fresh seeming.

Stopped here late night on our way back to the Holiday Inn, which is directly beside this restaurant. Both the drive-thru staff and the counter staff were nice and the food is always good here (chili five-way minus onions is too good and the salted caramel milkshake was to die for). Excellent for late-night.

Had lunch here one day and the small steak sliders were excellent. The price was very reasonable and the place was neat and clean.

On our last visit, we waited over 10 min to be greeted. Smaller groups were seated first, because there were clean tables. We had to wait quite a while for a table to be cleaned. (One table was dirty for over half an hour.) We had to wait again for drinks and to place our order, and finally 22 min... More

I am surprised by the poor reviews of the Homestead Steak and Shake. We recently stopped by for lunch as this is my nephew's favorite chain. It's a fast food chain, so it-is-what-it-is, but we got seated right away, had a great server and a pleasant visit. The food came in a timely manner. Overall it was a nice visit... More

We live in the Waterfront Area where this Steak and Shake is located. We have had our ups and downs there. Wasn't too great for awhile, got better. The cycle repeated. But, this last visit really is my last visit. We got seated and placed our order. Right after that another lady came over and asked the staff what was... More

I have never seen such an unprofessional staff in my life. My family and I went in after a pirates game last Friday and was completely ignored by staff. As we stood in front waiting for at least 10 minutes,we got to watch 2 staff members argue with each other. They were so loud. They could not stop fighting long... More
