“Expensive Steak House”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Had a nice meal but not worth the price. $120 for two people. Beets for an appetizer and two steaks, no dessert. Beer & a glass of wine. Server was very good. Food took forever to come out. If we were super rich we could maybe eat here once a week. I think this is a place to be seen.

“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We decided to try James Steakhouse last night before walking over to an Elton John Concert. Reservations were needed as the restaurant was booked for the night due to the event. we were seated as soon as we arrived and the excellent service began immediately. My wife and I shared the Chateaubriand for two served with turnip greens, baby carrots and potato pavé with a choice of béarnaise, red wine tarragon sauce. It was to die for. The steak was prepared perfectly and very tender. One of the best meals that we have experienced eating out in a long time. It is a bit pricey. You can expect to pay around $100 (or more) per couple depending on appetizers and drinks added to the main meal. Well worth a try. We'll be back to James Steakhouse for sure.

“Excellent food, excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Food, service and drinks were excellent. Our party of four all had steaks, Worcestershire butter topping was incredible. Sides, included with steaks, we're large and delicious. Perfect amount of attention from servers, never overbearing but attentive. Large selection of wine to accompany meal. Highly recommend James for a special occasion or just a great steak meal.

“Deeelish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

From the atmosphere of being in Downtown Huntsville to the way you are treated by the valet to the serving staff, James was a real treat. The food was something I am still daydreaming about...tuna shushumi, polenta, french green beans. My husband's New York strip melted in your mouth and his au gratin potatos made me ashamed of my own attempts at home. Creme brulet and port wine was the perfect ending....well not to mention how our vehicle was waiting on us at the front door with perfect timing. I want to say thanks to Susan Garrett who spoiled us with awesome service. It was definately a special night.
