“Best Steak in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you are looking for that tasty chunk of steak with heart stopping sides and don't care about the price, West is the place. Beautiful decor, dark and just like a steak house should be. Staff is as professional as you could ask for and the home made rolls ( make sure they are piping hot!) are good enough to make a meal of.Salads and sids are always perfect. When we want the good restaurant steakhouse experience this is where we go.

“Great Service, Excellent Dead Cow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Excellent dining experience at West Steak House in Carlsbad. The noise level is high. Well, it is actually very high, making it difficult to hear my dining partners. Noise notwithstanding, we found the service and food exceptional.

We had a couple of filets and one New York strip. All three steaks were prepared as ordered. One thing that West does which is unusual is that they include a couple of side dishes with each entree.

Sides were good. Steaks were great. Dessert (apple cobbler and banana's Foster) were exceptional.

If you're in the Carlsbad area, be sure to make reservations at West Steak and Seafood. I am sure you'll have a great experience.

“One Great Steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Ruth's Chris, Mortons and the other well known chain steakhouses are very good. But here in Carlsbad, we know that West's is every bit as good if not better. With a menu that features both choice and prime steaks, fresh seafood and wonderful side dishes that are included with your meal, a dinner at West's is a real treat. For birthdays, anniversaries or any special occasion, you cannot do any better.

“Best Happy Hour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Happy hour is every day in the bar. The filet and wedge is excellent and everything else that I have tried in the bar is wonderful. Service is great so are the drinks.
