Superior steak at this establishment!

My friends and I went to eat at Pine Club this past weekend, August 29, 2015 at 8:30pm. The place was absolutely packed, which was a great sign, and we did not mind one bit. Hostess Cathy was more than hospitable as was the gentleman who found us in back to alert us we were being seated. Only... read more

Mandatory time in the bar, slow unattentive service, over cooked steak, cash-only payments. I only mention the cash-only because the experience was sooooo bad that they only take cash. I guess so they don't have to deal with angry customers disputing charges via credit cards. 25 years ago, with lots of competition in Dayton, the Pine Club was fantastic. Now... More

We have been here several times and each time it is outstanding. They have a great steak as well as other very fine dinner choices. The atmosphere is very old world charming supper club. Staff is very friendly. They only take cash.

The Pine Club looks like it is right out of the 60s. I like that, and I also like the excellent food and good service. I particularly recommend the bone-in filet, which was terrific.

Been enjoying the steaks here since 1969 and it is always fantastic. On our last visit had the bone in filet, best steak I have ever had. No reservation taken and no credit cards, they have their own credit card, so bring cash and enjoy a true experience.

I have been taken here several times on business. It is a VERY old time steak house. The steaks are good but not great. Everyone says that you have to get the stewed tomatoes ----They taste like steamed tomatoes, pretty bland. The coolness of being old time only gets you so far. I don't think it matters what I think... More

The staff is extremely rude. The clientele are old and stuffy. The decor is ancient and needs updating. The steaks are from Michaels of Columbus which means you can get them yourself without having to endure 2 hours of waiting. Watered down drinks and awfully small sides. The tables are even smaller. 4 people at a table built for 2.... More

Bring cash, get there early, and order a steak. Yes, this is an old establishment that could use some updating, but if fancy is what you're looking for, this is not it. The wait for a table was an hour, but the bartender took good care of us. It's crowded, loud and dark inside, but that's part of the charm... More

What can I say about a place that is easily one of the top 5 steak houses in the country. The meat is fabulous. My favorite is the rib eye or sometimes the NY Strip. Just can't go wrong here. Just good steaks without all the frills. The place gets busy so be prepared. Cash only!

They live on their reputation! Take no reservations. Always have to wait even at opening. Steaks are still great, but.........!
