Ask for Dee Dee, provided excellent service. Excellent presentation. Premium and tender cuts of steak. Relaxed atmosphere, conducive to table talk.

Every Sunday, Schlesinger's hosts a brunch buffet. It's pricey, $25, but worth every penney. At our most recent visit, they featured a fresh ingredient omelet station, top quality prime rib, ham, several fresh vegetable choices, eggs benedict, chicken dishes, fish dishes, 3 cold salad choices, a delicious asparagus/potato/cheese frittata, 3 cold pasta salads, fresh garden salad, many fresh fruit choices,...

We arrived late due to road construction. The server could not have been friendlier. Our food came quickly. The steak Diane was just right. The crab cake was delicious. We unfortunately both had a mild reaction later to something we ate, but it could be our lactose intolerance. We were happy with our experience and will try again.

After reading several reviews, I decided to drive to Newport News for my first visit to Schlesinger's Steakhouse. It was a slow night and I can understand that a wait staff can be less efficient with little to do, but my guest had to request a water refill three times before the water actually arrived at the table. Same problem... More

Had a great business lunch here the other day. Three of us, all with different orders all raved about the quality of the food and the attentiveness of our server. The Thai Peanut salad with crispy chicken was out of this world. While off the beaten path, it is worth the trip. You will not be disappointed.

Family celebrated a birthday Sunday after church. We feasted on an outstanding buffet which had something for all tastes and ages. Great salads, normal breakfast offerings as well as carving station and cooked veggies. Chocolate fountain was a hit with the children, while pies and cakes with fruit were enjoyed by the adults. Table service was outstanding. We will go... More

Loved everything from the steak to the dessert. We ordered cowboy ribeye that melted in you mouth like butter and cooked to perfection. Staff was personable and attentive. Loved the chocolate cake. Will do it again for anniversary.

We went for anniversary dinner and was very impressed. The wine list is very well put together and is not overwhelming. The service was top notch, and the steaks were perfectly done and flavored. The prices are high, but worth the treat for certain occasions!
