“Best steak, hands down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is the place to go for steak. Aged just right for the most tender and flavorful steak cuts. This place has never had a sign and never needed one as they built their reputation by word of mouth advertising and you won't stay in business that way without an excellent product.

We have had their prime rib and their ribeye but our favorite cut by far is their filet. Each steak is cooked to profection. Served with a nice sized baked potato & salad you will not leave there hungry.

This place is not fast food. It takes time and they want you to not be rushed either. The staff seems to work very well together here helping each other make sure drinks are kept full and food it to your liking.

“Food took a long time.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The food took a long time to be served, and it wasn't even busy. Our server just couldn't get it together. The bus-boy was so attentive and tried to make everything better, but they wouldn't let him be our server. When the food finally came it was not all correct, but it was fixed fairly timely and everything was delicious. They might have closed since then.

“Good Steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

If decor and ambiance are your thing this is not the place. However the steaks are reasonably priced and very good. Service is better than average.

“Now Taking Reservations? Apparently Don't Know What That Means.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We have eaten at Young's many times, starting in the 70's when it was a pizza and hamburger joint. Their transition to a Steak House was a smooth one and the steaks and service were once very good. For many years, Youngs, the restaurant that has never had signage, didn't take reservations. Instead of enlarging the restaurant to accomodate more people, they enlarged the bar so that they could make money serving drinks before you were seated at a table. After the family split up the business and one of the sons left, the quality of service and food waned. A few years ago, we did go back and had been back several times. It was not the Young's Steak House of the 80's and 90's, but the food was good. Recently, they had a coupon in the local paper and the coupon said that they were taking reservations. I called and made a reservation for 6:30 on a Thursday. We show up at 6:30 and are told that we would have at least an HOUR WAIT. I reminded her that we had reservations and she proceeded to tell me the tables that she had just filled and pointed to all of the people waiting in the enlarged bar/waiting area. They just don't get it. It doesn't matter how good the food is. If the service stinks, I won't be back.

“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

In the 1970's to 1990's, you had to wait 1-2 hours on a Saturday night...and it was worth it. Now, you can walk in and be seated within 15 min's on any day. And the food tells you why... Decent steaks but not the best cuts...
