Eat it to believe it! i wish they'd step into the 21st century with their payment options (for their own sake as well) but, it is just amazing. like i said, TRY IT. i've eaten here about... More

The first thing to mention is that they don't accept credit cards. I've eaten here several times and the food is overpriced but always excellent. The steaks are great, the scallops were very good, and they have the best stewed tomatoes ever. The staff are mostly old timers who can be cranky. This time we got lucky and had a... More

Took my wife and granddaughter there last night as neither had ever been there. They both had the filet and said it was very good. I had the scallops and they were very bad. About the size of a nickle and just warm. I was expecting large scallops for the $30 price tag. Baked potatoes were not hot enough to... More

In Dayton, a restaurant that you always hear about is the Pine Club. It is a cash only steak place that doesn't take reservations. People rave about the steaks, and their signature steak is the bone-in rib-eye according to their wait staff. My wife grew up in the Dayton area, but had never been there. So we, along with another... More

Locals always know the best restaurants and especially the best steak houses. While in town on business I asked about the favorite steakhouse and the Pine Club was the most recommended (4 to 1). They don't take reservations but the wait at the bar was a pleasure. Once seated, the service was quick and efficient. Probably the best filet I've... More

Our Daughter went to UD.. She would call to her mother and say she was having "Steak Withdrawal".. Her mother would... More

We visited UD for family weekend to see our freshman daughter and knew the restaurant would be packed but never expected to be rushed in and out like cattle. Our server was Linda who has worked there since 1983! And literaly she was in such a hurry grabbed menus back from us, threw down our plates, bumped into people throughout... More
