Seriously! Since about 1947 the Pine Club Steak House has been a well kept secret by locals. It sits discreetly in the shadows near the university on the southside. Get this: The New York Times rated it one of the TOP TEN RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD! It remains unchanged since 1947...the same interior. You can see a photo of the... More

The Pine Club has been around for a long time. There must be a good reason. Friendly atmosphere and consistently good food and service.

Wow, I have heard people talk about the Pine Club, great 8 oz. filet cooked just the way I liked it. My baked potato was cold, but who cares when your steak was GREAT! The sides were nothing to speak of.

We love the steaks, sides, drinks, and atmosphere at Pine Club. It's like being in an episode of Mad Men! The only mildly negative thing I have to say is that you don't feel like you can linger. That's okay with me, but others might feel rushed.

My wife and I have been going to the Pine Club for more than 25 years. For special celebrations, it's our go-to place for some of the best steaks in the country. Quite often we go for the top cheeseburger in the country--as rated by the New York Times. We have never found a better one anywhere in the world... More

Porterhouse was slightly above average. Prime rib was super. Tomatoes - forget them. Drinks OK. Service was average

OK - been to the Pine Club several times over the years. The steaks seldom disappoint and last night was no exception. I ordered the 16 oz NY Strip - it arrived a perfect MR - as requested. Fluffy baked potato - lots of sour cream. FABULOUS. My hubby had the porterhouse - also good and our friends seemed pleased... More

Finally on this trip to Dayton I had a chance to eat at this place I had heard so much about, had been told it was a "must" for the "best" steaks. And folks had told me the house dressing was fantastic and the stewed tomatoes alone would be worth the trip. Well, it didn't live up to the hype.... More
