“One time terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

This restaurant is absolutely horrible. When i first got there for my 7:00 PM reservation, they told me that my table wasn't ready. How ridiculous! The host was also giving me a horrible look. Once we got to our table, the waiter took water orders, but my order was not taken. i was given a water with lemon, which i am allergic to. I was starting to think that this place is horrible. Just as a side note on the waters, the coasters that they try to use, stick to the cup, and make your drinking experience unpleasant. Make sure you ask for no coasters if you dare to go here. now moving to the food orders. The food orders went smoothly, but it took an outrageous 37 minutes for the food to come. My family and I were dying in sweat, since this place apparently doesn't have air conditioning. My brother has a Gluten Free diet and the waiter was glad to accommodate. When we were looking for his dessert, the waiter all of a sudden brought out an entire gluten free menu. This shows how uneducated and untrained their waiters and waitresses are. The shortest it took for my water to come was 1:50 seconds, but that was on rare occasions. some times i was waiting 10 minutes, dying in the terrible spice of the steak. Moving on to the dessert orders: the waiter said that the lava cake was their best dessert, but it was the worst thing i had ever tasted in my life. I've eaten a lot of lava cakes, but this tasted like dog crap. Now to the bill: when i reviewed the bill to begin to pay, i realized that they put on a 15% gratuity. This is when my open outrage began to really start. this place/server would not have gotten more than a 10% tip, if any under my standards. This place is a rip off, and the food is overpriced. If this review is not enough for you, the following will finally take you away from this place:
-the fries sucked
-the lava cake sucked
-the waiter sucked
-unless you want to eat for a full four hours, this is not the place.

If you want, this would be the best place to take a boss if you want to be fired.

“Always a Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

These guys always get it right. There is no mystery to the popularity of this neighborhood spot. Hard to imagine why anyone would go to one of the cookie cutter restaurants when a gem like this is so nearby. Exceptionally well run in all regards.

“Always delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

We've never had a bad meal at E&E's. It is our go-to restaurant for a delicious, as-fancy-as-you-make-it evening. It's good for families of all ages, couples, groups of friends or business associates. The Prime Rib, Rodeo steak, Salmon, Pork Chops... they're all melt in your mouth wonderful. Great cocktail menu. The prices are very reasonable for drinks and meals. It's a hidden gem in this area, not as high profile as Bern's or other more well known steakhouses. In my opinion, however, it far surpasses the others.
