“Best Steak House in Colorado Springs”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

I have lived in Texas, the midwest, the southeast United States and in quite a few states that are known for their steaks. A goood steak is one of the best things in life and the steak I received from the Famous Steak House did not disappoint. The Famous Steak House uses intense heat to sear their steaks in order to retain the juices of the steak and to ensure that the interior of the steaks are cooked to perfection. The Famous is conveniently located off of Tejon street in downtown Colorado Springs so after dinner you can grab a drink at one of the nearby bars or clubs. Going to the Famous Steak House.....you should expect to spend some money. Yes there are numerous cheaper Steak Houses in town but at the Famous....you get what you pay for which is high quality food cooked perfectly to order. Service here is always friendly and professional. This is a great place for a special occasaion or a anniversary. If you love steak...then the Famous Steak House is a must-try restaurant.

“Excellent Food and Service but Overpriced”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

My wife and I dined here recently to take advantage of a specially priced three course dinner for two. As with the last time we went, the steak was quite good, as was the rest of the food, and service was above average. We also very much enjoyed the flexibility to build reasonably priced custom wine flights to accompany the meal. The jus that came with the chateaubriand was excellent as well, but the Béarnaise sauce we requested (that classically accompanies the dish) wasn’t great (too thick; like soft butter). Given consistently good dining experiences, The Famous is a solid choice, but as the "value" ratings on Tripadvisor show, the regular menu is quite a bit overpriced. Best Advice: Wait for the reguarly advertised specials.

“Celebration Dinner”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

A great time at Famous Steak House with friends. Our server J D did a super job and the steaks, oysters on half shell, side dishes, shrimp cocktail and cheesecake + drinks were delicious. One person had the lobster/steak special and the lobster was a little tough and they credited us back for 1/2 the price of that meal. We will definitely return.

“Over-rated”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We went to the Famous for an early Valentine's dinner. We had a reservation. The food was good, however the service was not what I expected considering the reputation and the price. We were not met at the door by a host. In fact we waited for a few minutes and were ignored by the bartender and a server. A smile would have been nice. Then the host didn't take our coats until we got to the table and he had to juggle coats and menus. Even though we had a reservation we were seated by the kitchen door and the server's station in the bar. The server was distracted the whole evening. They were busy, but a restaurant of this caliber should do better. I would much prefer MacKenzie's Chophouse for a nice steak dinner.
