This is our third time at this sizzler while in town Food is fresh and tasty, orders come out quickly. Great price for what you receive. Order takers and waitress are very friendly and always clearing your table.

This was definitely in of the nicest steak houses for the price. I had steak and lobster. The steak was angus. It was cooked just right. The lobster was also tasteful. The salad bar had a good variety of cold and hot dishes. It would be a dinner without even ordering an entree.

Over the past 35 years I have dined at this restaurant and originally I called it a 5 star in disguise because of the value and the quality. Although the new owner has built it up with a great interior appearance wise and the choices are pretty fair, the sodium, sugar, and the over use of mayonnaise is ridiculous along... More

Sizzler, leastways the one on Lake Forest Drive, Lake Forest, is a good place for basic steaks, not extreme quality but good. Service is very good with a nice staff. We go there when we want a reasonable priced meal that's tasty and prepared well. Now the hungry part. The all you want salad bar is unique in that it... More

Friendly, courteous staff, the minute you get to the order and pay in line counter, until the very end of your visit. Our waiter, Tim, was so solicitous of our needs, he stopped by every so often to check if we needed anything, to replenish our beverages and the bread basket. While waiting for our orders from the All American... More

I remember when this place was around many years ago. They did a full tear down and rebuilt it. It looks so much better on the inside. The salad bar is worth visiting for sure. Food is not bad at all. The location of the bathrooms is horrid because it crosses the waiting line where you have to place your... More

Our family love Sizzler. I would give them five stars if they would ever offer coupons or discounts but the food is great for the value you get.

Very good out alternative close to interstate 5. Looks brand new. One of the best Sizzlers I have been to. Will have it in mind whenever I'm on this road.

Good size stake and delicious all you can eat salad bar what more could you ask for. Clam chowder was perfect. I really couldn't go for dessert or ice cream

My father loves this place - I rated it as poor because it was dirty - food on the empty tables, food on the floor. Tables need to be washed off once cleared. Food was ok as expected in a chain restaurant. Servers were pleasant and efficient.
