I have eaten at the Pine Club many times over the past few decades and it use to be the best "old school" steak house in Dayton. (My definition of old school means fabulous food and service in a no frills, "hole in the wall" bar/restaurant.) Unfortunately I think they've relied too much on past reputation and have forgotten about... More

I know this is a highly recommended restaurant with a lot of history...presidents and stars on the walls...and yes, the steaks are great. But come on, in our modern times, cash only, no soup nor dessert ever? It's noisy, dark, a boys club atmoshpere and the wait for a table can be easily 90 minutes on weekends - as there... More

The Pine Club is my favorite steak house. We have been going there for many years and the filet is always great, and the best onion rings come with it. The house salad dressing is very good also. It is our first choice when we want a steak. Our grand kids love going there too.

I was reluctant to try the Pine Club but I like the atmosphere-comfy. Dimly lit with a bar in the middle. Now you have to keep in mind it's not a chain restaurant. It's local. And like they say the locals do it different. If you get an entree you might as well just get one. That's how much food... More

The Pine Club is a landmark that serves the best steak in Dayton. They do not take reservations and they only take cash. There are stories that even Presidents of the United States had to wait their turn at the pine club. The Stewed Tomatoes are one of a kind and their steak sauces and dressings are a staple at...

Hadn't been to Pine Club in ten + years. Thought I'd try it again. It's such an icon in Dayton. Sheesh, give it up. Close the place before you make a fool of yourself. Same hostesses and waitresses as ten + years ago. Not nice. No smiles greeting you. Just a "How many in your party? Are the all here?"... More

50's atmosphere. Cash or check only. Great steaks. If you like your stewed tomatoes sweet don't miss these, they are the standard side or get another side and order the tomatoes for dessert as they don't offer dessert otherwise. But for my money the best item on the menu is the Cape Scallops. You can get them as an appetizer... More

Come early or plan to wait for a table, but it's worth the wait. These are by far the best steaks in Dayton.
