This restaurant's decor is one of the worst I've ever been in. It doesn't look like they've updated or renovated anything since the 1980s. It is very dark but not in a nice modern restaurant way, but in a dark, old creepy building way.

The food is decent. Nothing special, but not bad either. The thing is terrible however is if you order a steak for twenty - thirty some odd dollars that's what you get. A steak. On a plate. It doesn't come with anything else. At all. Here's your steak on a plate, sir. They want you to pay extra for any kind of vegetable or potato. How they get away with serving just a piece of meat on a plate just for presentation value alone blows my mind.

My advice is to avoid.

Enjoyed another delicious steak burger. I wish I knew the secret to their burgers for my BBQ. The salad is very good and great value as a $4 add on to the cheaper items. Sweet potato fries are highly recommended.

Little changes here. The decor is still the same and its as busy as ever.

I look forward my next visit. Must splash out sometime and have one of the steaks but its so hard to pass by the steak burger at $10.

For those who are burger connoisseurs, this place is a must-eat! Nice sized, juicy, beefy and meaty burgers that are so rich in flavour they are hard to beat anywhere. Fries are extra crispy with a slight coating on the top....and all is reasonably priced considering it is a meal and a very nice restaurant. For an extra 4 dollars, enjoy their incredibly fresh, clean and crisp salad buffet with all the basics, rich dressings, a delectable pumpernickel bread with raisins and yummify-ing corn bread that is more like corn cake than bread. We passed on the desserts as we were absolutely stuffed after the salad bar, burger and fries. Put this terrific restaurant on your to-eat list.

This type of steak and salad bar resturant waa really popular when i was a kid forty years ago but chucks hasnt keep pace and regressed. Salad bar very limited not filled or cleaned up often enough. Steaks good but not great...a good spot for a medium budget......if want great need to spend more $$$$

This is a good steakhouse right next door to the Danbury Residence Inn. The service was good although we did wait a while for our meal... but it is steak. Prices were fair and the salad bar was a nice touch.
