THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST STEAKHOUSES IN PA

To call this place a steakhouse is an insult to all other legitimate steak venues. The food was pitiful, the steak almost inedible. Stay away.

The salad bar which seems to be the big attraction was dried out, never replenished and was a disaster. Steaks were tough and fatty, food choices were not better than a local bar would offer. Wouldn't suggest this to anyone with a brain, except for the bar full of local losers....

They were understaffed and the manager was a little on the rude side. However our waitress was very sweet. The ribs and mashed potatoes were delicious. The steak was ok. Everything at the salad bar was fresh. Very reasonable prices.

Went here for my parents 40th anniversary along with my 95 year old grandma. We all got steak except for grandma who got fried shrimp. It was all delicous, the soup/salad bar was great too. Our steaks were cooked to our asking and grandma's shrimp were nice and crunchy. Even the baked potatoe was creamy and great. I want to... More

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food and service has always been very good. We look forward to Amber's Steakhouse because it is very reasonable and service is quick. If on the way to Mt.Airy Casino you will save a lot of money eating here instead of at casino.

Worst service I have ever had at a place to eat. Rude manager, inept waitress, terrible food. Our party had to send the rib eye back because it was bad (as in something was wrong with it) and the manager argued with us that it was fine. So, one person did not eat. She did order dessert...and they charged her... More

We have been dining at Ambers for many years with long periods of abstinence between visits.This restaurant needs a good cleaning and the windows closed so flies are not buzzing around. The steaks were all cooked nicely and tasted fine. The fried shrimp was over cooked and crunchy. Chicken noodle soup was delicious as was the potato salad.
