“Wonderful Steak Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Nice place to have a special dinner. More for business or couples- not for most families with young children.

“A fine steak that just melts in your mouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This restaurant is in the strangest of places. It is just off the freeway and between a gas station and a small hotel. Looking from the outside, you would never know this is one of the finest steak houses around. It is on the expensive side, yet worth every cent. The truffle infused mac and cheese will blow your mind. The steaks are cooked to perfection and literally melt in your mouth. I can't say I have ever had a better steak. Enjoy!

“This is DINING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We dined here for Valentine's Day and were not disappointed that we shared such a special day at West Steak and Seafood. Everything about our experience was superb. The ambience is relaxing and the service is attentive. I enjoyed steak and lobster in a unique presentation with sweet potato au gratin, and my husband dined on tender venison chops. Salads were ala carte. Wonderful evening.
