“The Golden Ox just isn't Golden anymore!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2009

Wow, what a disappointing experience my family and I had this past Tuesday. It was 15-20 minutes before the waiter even appeared at our table. We just sat there. Even then he did not introduce himself or even say he was our waiter. Keep in mind that the restaurant was not busy at all. He took our drink order and it was another 15 minutes before our drinks arrived. Then he left again. We had to ask if we could order an appetizer after we got his attention. It took another 15 minutes to get the appetizer which was really the only thing good about the meal. He took our salad and dinner orders but it was another 15-20 minutes before the salads came and you guessed it, another 15 minutes or so before the entree's came out. My potato was cool and my steak was tougher than a Ribeye should be. Same for my wife. Oh well no more Ox for us.

“It Is What It Is-A Steak House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

Based on some of the reviews of fellow "tripadvisors" I almost passed this one up. However upon the recommendations of two local strangers I talked with, I decided to give it a try. I wasn't sorry. I ordered a J/W on the rocks and was presented with a large brandy snifter full to the brim. No wimpy shots here! The small prime rib cut was MORE than enough and done just right (rare). The servers where attentive and punctual and the bill was reasonable. It is what it’s supposed to be; an American steakhouse.

“Not impressed. For these prices, there's a ton of better places.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2009

Service was slow / especially initially. When served our salad/soup, the waiter left a bowl of crackers...along with bread plates and butter ? Filet mignon not flavorful. Very mediocre.

“Very Disappointing Steak”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

Suppose to be aged prime beef, it was not. Steak was choice quality that one would get at a super market and not cooked that well. What happened to the 1800 degree oven?
