Local brought me here and very happy with experience. Full menu of many items, steaks, burgers, pasta etc. I had the Hot Hamburger and loved it. Meat was good quality, very tasty and came with potatoes and fresh vegs (appeared as such anyway) and very nice gravy. Waitress was very attentive, she knew my friend as frequent customer. Far better... More

For the prices Steak & Stein is a good option. You get a lot of food for your money and the quality is generally pretty good. I had a 1/2 rack of ribs with corn bread and a side salad and that provided a lot of food for one. The steaks were a little on the thin side for my... More

I saw a sign for 7.99 steak lunch and had to try it Was not disappointed. A tasty steak and fries hit the spot. A small steak, but exactly what i wanted. The fries were great too.

I use to come here all the time with my family but it seems over the last year the steaks taste different, much more gristle and just overall not a nice cut of meat. That hasn't stopped the prices from going up tho. There is way better options close by now for the same price. Sad this use to be... More

Although it seems to be popular , I have been going off and on for years , and really wouldn't call it a true steakhouse . The steaks are very thin , there is usually quite a bit of gristle and it can seldom be served medium rare , or rare because of these reasons .They use frozen fries and... More

This has been a landmark in the Portland area for eons. Steak and eggs are fantastic and great for brunch. Recommended for families and a nice brunch. Make reservations though it can get busy

This was my third visit there on various trips to Dartmouth. It's not much on service or food, really, but it's a place that locals go. The Calgary steak is a local favourite and the sandwiches are fine. This is a place for lunch, but there are better places for dinner.

Had supper there this evening. The prices are quite a bit higher then I remember and the quality is quite a bit lower. I remember this place to be packed for years over the supper hours, some nights with long lines waiting for tables - not tonight! Service was decent. The ceiling squares are falling apart and in some spots... More

I always find it frustrating when errors are made on orders, even for a table of 8. It was not so busy that drinks should be forgotten, the waitress was very kind and taught me all about chow but we were disappointed when what we specifically asked for was not what came to the table for the kids who then...
