This may not be fashionable in today's world, but I am a carnivore!!! I have tried many local "Steak houses" only to be disappointed by a tough unchewable piece of meat! I was wondering why ( the first thought was as times are tough, so is the meat) . I was advised that at this steakhouse they cut their own... More

I have lived in the North County for over 40 years and had never set foot in this establishment. My suspicions were confirmed on a recent evening when we went to Hunter's for dinner. The A-frame shingled roof shelters a dark, wood-paneled dining room with booths along one side. The overall atmosphere is dark and depressing. Hunter's is a throwback... More

Had a great prime rib dinner. Brought me back to the 70's which isn't a bad thing!! Love the cold crisp salad, the prime rib is always great. The 3 course menu (early bird) is inclusive with a nice choc molten cake. Happy hour drinks in the bar is nice as well. Have come here every month or so for... More

The Hunter Steakhouse in Oceanside was pleasantly active on the Wednesday night I arrived. I took the moderately filled parking lot as a first good indicator of a quality place. As I walked inside, the hostesses were pleasant, greeted me warmly and showed me immediately to my unreserved table. The decor of the place is very...germanic...simple, straightforward and unembellished. The... More

The lamb chop appetizer was very tasty but a bit too burnt for my liking. The filet mignon and prime rib sandwich were top notch. However, the service was a bit lacking, nobody bothered to ask us if our glasses needed to be refilled. It looked like the restaurant was short-staffed. Nonetheless, it's still a good restaurant and I'd definitely... More

We did a search for a good restaurant in the Oceanside area and the Hunter is what came up. It is pretty easy to find with navigation. Our party of 6 were pleasantly greeted and seated very quickly. The atmosphere is nice and rustic. The waitress was nice and her service was good. They offer a very good selection of... More

Hunter has been a staple in Oceanside for many years. It's consistently delicious, the staff is always friendly, portions are very generous! There are 2 levels and they are good about asking if any in your party have an problem with stairs, very accommodating! Perfect place for a prime rib fix with all the works!

What can I say? This is the best place to go have steak and chicken. I have always gotten the Forrest Mushroom Chicken. It's perfectly cooked and the mushroom sauce is excellent. Under the chicken if you have it the first time there's s nicely buttered wedge of toast that is a great compliment to your meal. I can't say... More
