I wrote a negative review on our first visit in the spring but noted we would try again because of the service. We made it back for Christmas Eve which is a tough night for a restaurant. The service was terrific again....and so was the food from appetizers through dessert. The steaks were all well prepared and flavorful, and the... More

The atmosphere is modern, our service was quite good and the food was excellent. My only issue was the price of some of the steak dishes, which neither of us had.

Had 4 different steaks and a lobster tail, including the special, a 12 oz. Delmonico steak that was out of this world! Great family style sides and excellent service. Reasonable wine list prices, we had a very good Zinfandel (Soberoff ?sp) and surprisingly good cocktails. As good as any excellent steak restaurant in Atlanta (our hometown)

Hello Stuart. Thrilled to hear you enjoyed Bin 54 as much as you did. I'm also from Atlanta, and I know how good the steakhouses are there. We appreciate the high praise and very much look forward to your next visit to Chapel Hill and Bin 54. The Zinfandel I'm thinking you had is Seghesio. That's the only one we... More

We were there for a special birthday and the evening could not have been better. The wait staff was excellent, attentive and not intrusive. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave excellent tips about the main courses. The wine choices were good and the wine steward was excellent in his knowledge of the wines and its origins.... More

Place was hopping. Good selection of wines and bourbons. Salads very very good but not great. (Not out of Food Lion bag as someone said). Wife ordered her filet blue, mine rare, and they got them right, they were very tender. Brussel sprouts were excellent, 2 x baked potato so-so. Value not so bad. Did not get our server's name....

Enjoyed having dinner here. I was looking for a place that served good steak and this was one of the higher rated restaurants. I had a salad and the filet and they were both excellent. I recommend making a reservation and allowing yourself time to enjoy your meal and the atmosphere. They have a friendly staff, full bar and many... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in the Triangle. It's a high-end steak house. I don't eat meat but love the food here. Lovely ambiance and topnotch service. Took my college kids here for a celebratory meal and the experience couldn't have been better. A great place for a special evening.

Thank Tracy S

It was our pleasure to help you celebrate, and we hope you give us the opportunity to celebrate many more special occasions in the future. We will always be able to accommodate those that don't eat meat, such as yourself. Thank you, again. More

Overpriced!! The beef is of high quality but who still eats 15-18 oz steaks? Really! Call them Kobe or Angus Prime, they are absurdly priced unless, of course, you are on a business travel budget when there is no limit and you can gorge yourselves on beef. Having said that much negative stuff, I still have more. The serving staff... More

Enjoyed dinner with the girlfriend and her parents. Everything was delicious except, interestingly, the dinner rolls were conspicuously dull. Petite filets tasted very good, although (to me) it was a turn-off they were pre-sliced. Maybe just to confirm they were cooked as requested? In any case, I have never seen that before. Anyway, sides were all very good (asparagus, lobster... More

Thank you for your feedback. It is the only way we can improve on any areas in which we are not the best. We slice our filets only for the purpose of presentation. We do not slice any of the other cuts, NY Strip, Porterhouse, etc. Upon your next visit, please request to have your steak served to you without... More

Really- you will ever find a better crab cake. All crab- makes you wonder what binds it together . . . But it doesn't matter as it is the one against which to measure all others.
