I did have the buffet and my meal consisted of roast beef (excellent), mashed potatoes (outstanding) and peas. What's there to say about peas? I also had the salad bar and yeast rolls. The ice tea was fresh. Candace was my server and did an outstanding job. I never leave food on my plate but I couldn't eat it all... More

Their cafeteria lunch is great! You get salad, main entree, two sides and desert for one cost. You get plenty to eat! The sliced roast beef is excellent with mushroom sauce on it!

Our family frequents the Beef House, been coming for over 20 years (live in Illinos, appox 45 mins away). It's just good food! Real meat, homemade rolls, honest mashed potatoes and just an overall great dining experience. Everyone deserves a Beef House visit at least once in their life! It's a staple restaurant for the Midwest.

Friends took us here because they said it was a popular and really good place to eat. Our steak was average, I can make better at home. The salad bar was average. The restaurant seemed dirty and had a bad smell. Our waitress never made eye contact, she just recited what she had to say. I was very underwhelmed. I... More

I have great memories of coming here as a child for special occasions, so for our 10th anniversary I brought my husband for what I anticipated would be a delicious meal. To start, we ordered an appetizer, which by the time we returned to our table from the salad bar, we had our appetizer, soup and salad all waiting to... More

It is always a treat to drive across Illinois and into Indiana and be able to stop for a delicious meal at the Beef House. Customer Service is Awesome as well as the food. Topping the list is their HOMEMADE Dinner Rolls, fresh strawberry jam and apple butter - that alone is worth the stop. We have NEVER had a... More

I heard many positive reputations about this restaurant. However, when my group (two families) visited here from Champaign IL, we were all disappointed regarding the quality of steaks. I and my wife ordered medium rare, but our steaks were almost well-done. My friend and his wife ordered medium, but they are definitely over cooked beyond well-done. There was no red... More

Visited with family for a special occasion and even though we had been here before it has been a few years. The place has a very homey, inviting, and lively atmosphere. The hosts and wait staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and even helped make the occasion more special. The menu is mainly beef and seafood entrees, with pasta and... More

I have been going to the Beef House for many years. Even though I live in Texas now, these folks here don't know what good beef is. "Rumor" has it that I "just might" drive a few hours out of the way to have lunch or dinner at the Beef House...just a rumor Great steaks, applebutter on the table, wonderful... More

It was a pleasure for us to visit our longtime favorite, The Beef House in Covington, Indiana, once again. We used to go there often, but we live hours away now. We ate there for the first time in 10 years yesterday, and were thrilled that the food was just as delectable as ever, and the service was still as... More
