Good hearty food!

Went to Dan's with a group after hiking nearby Strickler Knob. We were exhausted, cold and starving. Warm yeast rolls were immediately brought and are delicious. The portions are very generous. I ordered a steak sandwich with mushrooms, and it was an entire steak on a bun. Cooked to order... read more

Warm. Inviting atmosphere. Tables and booths. Friendly, helpful staff. Our adult party of three ordered crab cakes and grilled flounder stuffed with crab/lobster. Meal comes with choice of salad and choice of vegetable. Table comes with delicious rolls and--if you ask for it--real butter. Menu had a good variety of sides--baked/ "French-fried" sweet potatoes; and, combo dinners--double portion steaks for... More

The mixed review was worrisome before I went. I can understand that now. There were 3 of us that ordered steaks, and 1 was undercooked a bit, 1 was slightly overcooked, and 1 was perfect. I had the one that was cooked properly, and it was absolutely fantastic. But consistency is an issue. The steak itself was great. The appetizer... More

Staff and atmosphere was great! Megan, our server, was by-far one of the best we've ever had, at any restaurant.

I should have listened to my wife's sage advice... "Never Eat Seafood in a Steakhouse." I was passing through the area, and the front desk at my motel highly recommended Dan's Steakhouse. Originally, I planned on ordering a steak, but then the health-conscious side of me took over, and I decided to order something "healthy" like the seafood combination platter.... More

It isn't Ruth's Chris but the steaks aren't a hundred bucks either. Overall, the steaks are very good and well worth the price. I'm pretty sure if you were dissatisfied, they would cook you another. We had eight in the party and all the food was delivered as expected. The salads were fresh and crisp and had onions, peppers, tomatoes,... More

We always get the Sirloin for Two. It is more than enough to feed us & we always have enough left over to bring home to have with eggs for breakfast the following morning! Great service & very cozy

well it is your basic steak place. we had a very large steak for two to share and it was enough for a second meal for both of us. since we shared, it made for a very budget friendly meal.

Other than Circa 31 at the Mimslyn, there are not any high quality dining experiences in Luray! I have been to Dan's twice in two years and each time it has proved an acceptable dining experience. Yes, I did have the sirloin for two last fall and it was well cooked and not too fatty! This time, I had the... More

OK, Luray is just a charming town but really lacks on eateries. It's a shame one has to drive ten miles out of town to find a meal. The place does not look to be much on the outside or the inside; however meal is more than expected, great taste and quality.
