“Good steaks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The one thing that recommends this restaurant is that the steaks are excellent but that's where it ends.
The decor is reminiscent of a 1960's drinking club, so it is a little like stepping into a time warp. A feeling that is reinforced by the back to school dinners custard drenched industrial puddings.
The staff are very friendly and if what you want is a really good steak then this is the place. For a romantic evening with your loved one - try somewhere else.

“Thanks!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

It used to be advertised as the best steaks in Sussex....I thought I did those! I must admit though, the sirloin steak was cooked to perfection and the chips were spot on! The service was really good with a very knowledgeable..(and gorgeous!) young waitress. Thank you...! We will return in the future.

“Superb Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I don't do many reviews and until now never in my home Town, but I really can't understand the negative reviews for this restaurant. For sure you wouldn't come here to appreciate the decor or admire the furnishings but the steaks are second to none. Served on a sizzling dish and cooked to perfection we have always had great meals here, the wines are very reasonably priced and John is the perfect host. I've eaten in most of restaurants in Worthing and MacMillans is up with the very best. I would always recommend this as the best steak restaurant in Town. Go there, chill out and enjoy.

“great steaks rude owner/chef”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went to the restraunt 5 years ago, stunning food, fair price, large group of us, food came out fast and had no complaints.
Returned last night (26th jan 2013) service was great, ordered our steaks, came out as ordered in a good time, unfortunatly one of the sirloins had a lot of chewy silver skin running though it and full of fat, sent it back and another one was sent out the same needless to say we sent it back for an alturnative but the chef refused, he was very aggressive when he eventually came down, saying the steak was good however he wont charge but will not replace it, he also shouted at us telling us never to return (not that we would)
The table next to us also sent back 3 steaks!!

Such a shame because sometimes you do get a dodge steak, if he just replaced it and was polite we would have been happy but he was just rude and not a very nice person! very unprofessional!!
