Right on the main highway and lots of choices. Portions were enormous. Meatloaf was excellent! only problem I had "no room" for any of their "real Homemade Pies" very... More

We are always trying to find local places around to eat. Support our communities/state vs chain restaurant. I LOVED this place! He came out with the whole ribeye to ask us how many ounces we wanted. Cooked to order correctly the first time all by memory! Amazing! Nice salad bar and yummy potatoes. I love that the place is small... More

SUPERIOR BEEF grilled to Perfection !! From a full beef loin at your table, you select your cut and specify how you wish it grilled.. The menu is simple and direct. Steak, Potato and Chilled Salad !! Nothing fancy, Just Outstanding Steak Dinner !!

One of the best steaks I have ever had! It just melted in your mouth which is something to say about a steak. My friend and I went on a weeknight and got there around opening. Did not have to wait on table. Salad bar had fresh ingredients with a good selection of options. Wish they had had honey mustard... More

What a great restaurant! Simple menu done perfectly. Tailgating outside before being seated is highly unusual and a treat for when we take friends. The ribeyes are great quality and done to order on the grill every time. Love this quirky little place!

A very simple concept but it works! You get to choose the size of your ribeye steak, how you'd like it grilled, if you'd like a grilled onion and what you'd like to drink. You automatically get a trip to the salad bar and a baked potato. That's it and you're set for a good meal at a good price,... More

The Beefmastor is a simple place, yet the steaks are exceptional. You can always count on superior beef, along with a great salad bar. If you're looking for upscale, this is not your place. However, you can bet that you will enjoy one of the BEST steaks to rival any other. The atmosphere is quaint and the staff always awesome... More

This was my first time visiting this restaurant. It is not fancy, but the food is wonderful. When I went, I did not realize that the only steak that they served was Rib-eyes, which is not my favorite cut of steak. That was by far the best ribeye that I have ever eaten...I can only imagine what they could do... More

The last time I was at the Beefmastor Inn, was over 20 years and I can honestly say that it is still one of the greatest steaks that you will ever eat! I have told my husband about the restaurant since we were married 14 years ago that I will take him one day. Well, that one day was last... More
