“Popular but Not Impressive Enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Overall, this is a good steakhouse but not impressive due to its value. An overall 3.5 stars should be right.

It is quite crowded.

The Rib Steak I ordered was good quality and cooked exactly as ordered. The combination plates ordered by my friends were also said to be good. But I would not know firsthand since they refused to share. Note to myself: Remember the names of these friends.

The price matches middle/upper steakhouses in a big city and the portions were not excessive. However, the ulimitted salad bar can make up for the difference.

“There is better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Good but not great food. The prices were not bad but not great . This is probably a tourist trap Resteraunt. I am sure there is better in the area if you look. Service was not the best . We actually had to ask for our waiter. Wife's steak was over cooked to point it was dried out. Mine was good. Salad bar was nice . Had crab cake that was ok but not great . Again I would look around before here you will probably get a better deal/ meal.

“good place for a late lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We stopped in for lunch on a rainy say on the way home for a trip to RI. Great service, menu is good, crab cakes tasteless, lobster bisque very good. Salad bar is included in lunch, its very basic, but all you need, (add olives). good for all ages, and big groups, or just one. Desserts are so-so. Had been there years ago, would go back, and not order crab cakes.

“Decent menu with great salad bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

You can either dine in the bar area or the main dining room. The meals in the dining room include the salad bar which is awesome. Before we even had our main meals we were full from the salad bar. The value and the service is great.

“Reliable place to dine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

We always include Steak Loft on our list of restaurant selections when visiting Mystic. It's always a good choice. You can't beat the salad bar. Good value and good service. Good management that makes this place always consistent. There's a reason why it's been here forever.
