no window ! but decent food...

It is a bit of a bizarre place.... It is located in the corner of a shopping mall and has no windows... Staff is very helpful and friendly. Food is good, however a bit expensive (considering the place) however you will get a lot of extras out of the kitchen...

Sometimes you just have to get a steak and nothing else will do. For those of us of like mind and desire, Lord Nelson's is heaven-sent. I've been visiting this shrine for over a decade for both business and pleasure occasions and have never been disappointed, and have always returned for more. Nick and his colleagues always provide a warm,... More

I am never disappointed, it is a family tradition that we go to the Lord Nelson on Christmas Eve. Excellent service, the food, is always hot!

We found the Lord Nelson surprisingly nestled in a strip-plaza that, at first, did not give the impression that such a gem would exist there. Upon entering the restaurant we were graciously greeted and seated in a manner that we thought had long been forgotten - old fashioned VIP treatment and a genuine feeling conveyed that we were truly welcome...

We were looking for a place to have a nice dinner for our family of 15 for Christmas. We certainly found it at the Lord Nelson. We reserved a separate room which made the experience that much better. Yes it is old world type of steak house but that is just what we were looking for. This place does not... More

It's so hard in Burlington to find an old school steak house with black and white dressed waiters and great steaks! The Lord Nelson never fails in giving the dining experience you expect. Great food, great service and a quality experience. We are regulars here and are never disappointed. It might be fun to try a different, more edgy tapas/bar... More

The Lord Nelson is one of those classic steak houses where the Cesar Salad and Cherries jubilee are made table side. I have been at least 100 times and decided to share with everyone how great it is. I have come to know and really like the staff, and I have never had a bad meal since going. The Steak... More

The restaurant is located where you'd least expect it (a low-end retail plaza) and unless you knew it was there, you'd drive right on by without so much as a second look. Thankfully for us we knew this restaurant's reputation, and decided to seek it out. Once you get past the front door, you quickly forget about the restaurant's surroundings.... More

From the time we entered this restaurant till the time we left, there was not one thing that was not a 10 out of 10. The atmosphere, the service, the food and all the people. One of the very few places I have been in the past ten years that give service like it should be done, for example making... More

We went here for my birthday, the setting is dark but nice, my son order a Cesar salad that was made right at the table, we order steak which was absolutely delicious. The wait staff was very attentive and courteous. I would recommend making reservations. A good choice.
