This restaurant is badly understaffed and the staff that is there is rude and complaining to each other about too many customers. We tried today three or four times to get our server to refill our glasses to no avail. Waited 10 minutes for someone to take check us out. We are done here and will go to the Cumming... More

Best place to grab a quick snack. Great service when you order. The food gets to you still warm from the grill. I love the fact if you order something that's not on the menu you can still get it... Thank You

The mix of cuts of beef in their steakburgers (not to mention the toppings) and the real ice cream in their shakes make for diner-style meals that are very hard to beat! This location serves them up very well with great service on most visits. All this at a price that beats most fast food joints!

Such a variety of choices on the menu, even the $4 menu. We both ordered different style burgers and upped the side of fries with cheesy fries. All excellent as usual. The shakes are always our favorite. Despite the many choices we usually stick to our chocolate and chocolate fudge examples. Our favorite shakes in the USA. Our server was... More

I should have known better after I saw the B health code rating. Food was under cooked and cold. Not much meat on the burgers. Fries weren't even cooked. Floors were dirty, restaurant in general was dirty. Ice water tastes like chlorine.

I've eaten at this Steak and Shake location many, many times over the years. The food, with a few exceptions (cold fries at times) remains very consistent at a great price point. The problem for the past few years (yes years) is the staff is pretty lazy if given the opportunity (waiting 5-8 minutes) to be seated in an otherwise... More

This place has to be under new management because they've improved tremendously! Our last 2 experiences here have been great. We were here probably about 6 months ago and if I had to review the place then, I would have been disappointed that I couldn't give them less than 1 star. After past terrible experiences we decided to pop in... More

This was the first Steak n' Shake I have ever been in and I was amazed at the low cost and how great the food and the service was. Will definitely be back.

My husband used to be a die-hard Steak N Shake fan... but the past several times we have been to this establishment has made us switch to Freddy's as the better alternative. This Steak N Shake is always packed, dirty, and smells like a McDonald's playground. The staff always makes you stand and wait a while before someone comes to... More

We saw our waitress Victoria two times. When she took our order and deliverer our drinks. There was not a salt and pepper shaker on our table and when our order was delivered I had to request napkins and silverware. I was told they were out of salt and pepper shakers?? He brought packets?
