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

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.

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.

Jared B, General Manager at Bin 54, responded to this review

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.

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
