I travel and frequently try different steak houses. This place came recommended to me while i was in town. The place has a great atmosphere. There were a lot of people and the ambiance is like how I expect a nicer establishment to be. Started with the calamari which was cooked perfectly, however, the amount of garlic is astounding. It...

For a fantastic steak, Bin 54 is the place to go. Hands down the best meat available that is cooked to perfection over a real wood fire. I recommend the bone-in ribeye for the carnivores out there. Wine list is decent and desserts are top notch as well. Can't go wrong here.

Thank you, CM. The bone-in ribeye is definitely the most flavorful steak we offer on the menu. We often feature Wagyu and other bone-in cuts as well. Hopefully, you can come back and give one of those a try sometime soon. More

Excellent food, atmosphere and service, now that I am retire I travel less but do enjoy going out to amazing restaurants. Traveling the world for business I ate at many Michelin star rated restaurants. Bin 54 is easily a rated establishment, cannot believe it has not been rated. The old Warsaw in Dallas Tx was and I cannot believe Bin... More

The perfect combination of what we expect in a meal. Vicki was our server and made suggestions of lobster and filet that were beyond expectations. Martinis were perfect. Appetizers also to our liking. We will return soon and often.

Our first time visiting the area.. This steakhouse lived up to the reviews we read online before booking. Everything was delicious and we would love to go back next time we're in town.

We had just arrived in Chapel Hill and were looking for a restaurant that was quiet and casual. This was perfect - near the hotel, any casual attire and it offered both steak and fish. My trout was too salty to my taste and was immediately whisked away and I was given another trout to my liking. The wait staff... More

Atmosphere is on the romantic side. I was there with a business group. I had the crab cake as an appetizer and it was over the top. And actually, it was a large enough size that it could serve for 2. I had the salmon for my entree and it was just OK. Nothing at all special. I did taste... More

Hello Susan. Thank you for your feedback. I am happy to hear that the steak you tasted was very good, but I was wondering if there was anything you felt we could have done differently with the salmon for you. We do often get high praises for our crab cake, and I am glad to see that you agree. We... More

Great service, food was excellent. Lamb, steaks, fish etc in a reasonable price. Good wine list and not noisy. Was a bit dated on the fixtures, but a very good restaurant.

This was our first visit to Bin 54 and it was Saturday night. The service was excellent and the food choices we had were all excellent from entrees, sides, and deserts. Our only issue was the high level of noise that made conversation almost impossible. This high level of noise may be a result of Saturday night crowds or larger... More

Thanks for your feedback, Ned. We're happy to hear that your service and food were both excellent. Unfortunately, you joined us over Duke University Graduation weekend, and there were many large groups celebrating. Festivities can make it louder in the restaurant than normal. Next reservation, please ask if there will be anything out of the ordinary occurring. We look forward... More
