“excellent steak and dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The stone grill concept is fantastic.. you order the meat and extras (scallops, shrimp..) and they arrive basically uncooked on a searingly hot slab of stone. Add a sauce and sides and you are ready to go. Flip the meat and it starts cooking, slice pieces off and cook it to your taste. Whats great about this is that at a regular steak restaurant you order rare or even medium rare and the meat is cold by the time you are half way through. Whereas at crazy horse you can still be eating hot/warm medium rare steak exactly as you like it at the end of your meal. Steak quality was very good and the overall dining experience was great. I went with my teen and tween kids and its great for them as they get to control the meal. Coupled with a good draft beer and good deserts it makes for a special treat. Service was very friendly... and I would class it as a family friendly location even though the mostly female servers are sporting the daisy duke look so dont be put off by that. Its a bit pricey but well worth it both for the food and overall occasion. Yes you can have them cook your steak, but why would you?

“Steak & Mushrooms will never do me wrong!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I got the 7oz. Tenderloin with mushrooms and the onion petals on the side and man was I impressed!!!

The steak was hot and tender all the way through to the last bite. The mushrooms were cooked just right, and the onion petals were lightly breaded and definitely done to golden perfection.

Do without the comical short shorts and this could be a five-star joint for sure!!

“Suprisingly good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I have been here dozens of times and felt it was time to give this place a review.

The food and service are consistently excellent. I've never had anything short of impressive service. The food stands out because of the stone grill, which is a hot stone to cook your food on. This allows you to cook your steak to just the right point and eat it immediately. The result is outstanding. Note that there are many other options on the menu if this sounds too ambitious. The price is reasonable for what you get.

The décor is western country style with music geared towards city folk. The servers are young and the girls wear a daisy duke look. The guys dress like sheriffs. Initially, we avoided the place because of the way the girls were dressed, wrongly assuming that the service and food must be poor with such an atmosphere.

Before 9 pm this is a family friendly restaurant. Afterwards, it transforms into a bar, no kids allowed, with live bands on the weekend, a mechanical bull on Wednesdays, and amateur night on Tuesdays. I recently attended the open mic on Tuesday and was stunned with the high quality of the amateur bands and singers. The audience was supportive and the performers deserved the applause.

“2.5 stars out of 5 for what I'm not crazy about Crazy Horse”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

more like 2.5 stars. I'm guessing pants or shorts for that matter are expensive in Ottawa.

Medium-well means a bit of pink on the inside, not the majority of the steak... I ordered a steak salad medium well, and it came out medium rare. Perhaps the server confused well and rare?

when she wasn't too busy sitting with what appeared to be a regular patron or perhaps management in the bar area. I'm glad I didn't need or want much.

Suffice it to say I may very well not be going back.

“Great steak, and the hot stone cooking is tasty and fun!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Consistently good quality steak, cooked to perfection.

We particularly enjoy the diy option of cooking a juicy and tender little steak, a couple of big fat prawns, and a couple of big fat scallops on a hot slab of granite.

However, there is one in-your-face irritant. The predominantly female staff appear offended - understandably - by the presumably management policy of pouring quarts into pint pots, teetering around the restaurant in heels and the skimpiest shorts known to humanity.

It appears that the look-but-don't-touch concept of T&A service is designed to make one spend foolish amounts of $$$ on booze and food, but, SURPRISE! for those of us not titillated by the presence of exposed female flesh next to our plate of food (and that would be approximately half the world), it's rather off-putting, really.
