About
The Old Homestead, a New York City institution, is one of the country’s oldest steakhouses and is known for serving the finest steaks in the Big Apple for nearly 150 years. With their second location in Atlantic City, guests can experience their trademarked domestically raised, hand-massaged Wagyu beef on both sides of the river. Brothers and owners Marc and Greg Sherry believe in the adage “don’t mess with a good thing,” which is why the menu at their steakhouse in Atlantic City nearly mirrors the one in New York. And for good reason: "We haven't had an empty seat in quite a few years," Greg explained. Now visitors to Borgata have the chance to see why. We made the list! Find out why our 20

The service here was great! Our waiter was so friendly and helpful! The food was just ok. My steak was a little burnt and the appetizers and sides were nothing special.

This was our anniversary and truly the 3 servers were the best to help make our day. The food was so fantastic my husband had to return the next night. We were fortunate to be introduced to the owner and he was truly a pleasant...person. Oscar especially went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied with our meal and drinks. I am so sure if you visit the establishment and ask for him you will not be disappointed. Look forward to visiting again quite often. Thank you 3 for making our day so special.More

This was our first visit to Old Homestead. Located inside the Borgata Hotel and Casino, I was very pleased with the decor, the atmosphere, the service and the food. The menu had a wide variety of choices, whether it be steak, fish, chicken, etc. I...wouldn't order chicken in a place like this, but to each his own. I had the large (18oz) filet mignon and my wife had a large (10oz) lobster tail with a side of spinach. I also ordered onion rings, which were close to the best I've had. The steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The lobster tail was great also. And the rolls.......warm and delicious. Service was excellent. The bill was about 175.00 for the two of us. Not bad, when you consider where you are. Will definitely return here.More

Had a very nice dinner. We ordered the Porterhouse for two which was a steak like no other! Also order the broccoli but that was not so great. Too full for dessert even though even though everything on the menu looked delicious!

This was not on our list of places to eat, but after everywhere else looked to be closed, we decided to give it a go. The restaurant is very nice, we sat upstairs and the ambiance is romantic. The service was great, the three waiters...that assisted us were friendly and timely. The food was ok. The size of their homestead ribeye is good, but it was slightly overcooked and lacked flavor. The lamb chops were just ok as well. For the price, we were expecting a little more. We did find it funny when we were asked if we wanted fresh pepper and then were handed a shaker. I'm guessing it was a miscommunication and we weren't upset, but it did make us laugh. We wanted a romantic couples dinner, and this provided that. But at those prices, we probably wouldn't return based on the food we got.More

The food here is awesome and we had the best waiter named Mike. He explained the cuts of the steaks and gave us exceptional customer service.

I ordered the fried shrimp which I took to my room. The shrimp were hard and dry as they were overcooked. The coleslaw and cocktail sauce were both missing. $35 for nothing.

My wife and I had been looking forward to getting back to the Old Homestead for quite some time. We recently had to settle for “Homestead to Go”. It was great. Once I placed my order on line, they called me just to double check...they had everything correct. The service and the food was incredible! Nice job on keeping up your standards during these crazy times. Surf and turf in our room was even better than I thought it would be!!! Thanks Old Homestead!!More
