Good - but not the best in area.

We have lived in the area 19 years and every 3 or 4 try the Pine Club again. We frequent the Oakwood Club as we typically have preferred it. With recent publicity we decided to try the Pine Club again. No affiliation with either restaurant. Here is our comparison: Ambiance: equal to Oakwood... read more

My wife and I spent our 13th anniversary here for dinner with high expectations. We ordered the strip steak for two, which is a 24 oz extra thick cut. We ordered it medium. When it arrived the steak was overlooked on the outside and rare in the middle ( grey meat on the 3/4 inch around outside with a bright... More

Yes the headline is correct this steak restaurant is better than either Ruth's Chris or Morton's! Since 1947 this Locals favorite has been serving great steaks lobster and a full menu. It also offers a full locals style bar and 1950 decor. But when you go and you should go bring cash since they don't take credit cards. If you... More

Our first time there and I was not overly impressed. Our female server (short black hair) was about as friendly as a dead fish. The iceberg salad was soaked in dressing. The steak knifes need sharpening. Our party of 4 had ordered the porter house, prime rib and filet mignon. The steaks were good at $34.95 a piece but nothing... More

Best of best steak prep. We've been dining for 11+ years. ALL good!! Traditional food, traditional atmosphere. We don't visit for contemporary setting, PC 40's style! Sometimes longer wait- so what?!? Have a drink, socialize, & wait for the yum!

Read raving reviews about how this is a top restaurant in the country. We must have been there on an off night as this restaurant didn't meet the standards we've experienced elsewhere. My wife had fish and I had steak -- both were very average meals. In addition we were with another couple and the service was slow. Surrounding tables... More

I have been going to the Pine club for years. I think it the best that Dayton has to offer. It is a better value than Fleming's, Chris Ruth, or other upscale steak houses.

Pine Club is a historic restaurant, but, it does not live up to it's fine dining prices. When I pay in this price range, I want a culinary experience and outstanding food. What I get here is average, there is zero ambiance, no fine china, and bar decor/atmosphere. I have had way better steak and food in many, many places.... More

The Pine Club is a Dayton tradition with excellent steak. First thing to know is that they don't take credit cards, which can be a shock to out-of-towners. The decor and atmosphere hasn't been updated but that's part of the ambiance. Regulars like it that way. But it's clean and the wait staff provide excellent service.

I'm a steak fanatic, and this place is one of the best in the nation. The line is always long but moves fast. The steak is incredible. I was in Dayton for a week and ate here every night.
