Description: Steak 'n Shake, a classic American brand, was founded in 1934 in Normal, Illinois by Gus Belt who pioneered the concept of premium burgers and milkshakes. For over 85 years, the company's name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word "steak" stood for steakburger. The term "shake" stood for hand-dipped milkshakes. Gus was determined to serve his customers the finest burgers and shakes in the business. Today, Steak 'n Shake remains the "better burger" leader, serving premium 100% beef steakburgers, hand-dipped milkshakes, thin crispy fries, and more. Steakburgers are made without preservatives or artificial ingredients, topped with fresh produce, and always hand-crafted to order. Other classics include the Frisco Melt, 7x7, Prime Steakburgers, and fan favorite M&M milkshakes.

We have visited Steak 'n Shake restaurants in a few different states and cities, and only one of them has provided a truly outstanding experience.

The Stuart restaurant was NOT that place. Instead, it was just what we've come to expect as standard for the brand.

The person who seated us could not have been any less interested in us and seemed both annoyed and bored when she seated us.

Our server was very friendly. She greeted us warmly and took our orders patiently and accurately. We were pleased that her attitude and personality were the complete opposite of the woman who seated us.

The food at Steak 'n Shake is good but not great. It's inexpensive and fairly fresh, but not really anything to write home about. This is a shame because it seems that the crews in most Steak 'n Shake restaurants are just phoning it in and passing the time with as little effort as possible till they can clock out and go do something else.

I have mixed feelings as to whether I recommend or do not recommend the Steak 'n Shake in Stuart. On the one hand, we will probably return if we're in town for more than a month or so. However, on the other hand there are a lot of other places from which to choose, so the return to Steak 'n Shake won't happen any time soon.

Not a bad place for a fresh burger. Milk shakes are very good. Service was a little slow but very good.

Very poor service,waited at least 5 minutes to be seated, the table was dirty, waited another 10 minutes for the waitress to take our order, when the food finally came, the fries were cold, the milkshake was served in a plastic take out container, although we ate in the restaurant, and the burger had a topping that was not ordered, pickles.
They needed more staff working to take the orders, and it wasn’t even lunch time when we went, it was 2:15. Not sure if I would go there again.

Visited for dinner, son and myself stood by "wait to be seated sign." One group in the restaurant one at take out, pretty slow. No acknowledgement at all. Ten minutes we left. The time before at least got to table and sat there for awhile with no service before we left.

Love the shoe string fries w/Cajun seasoning. The burgers and chicken finger are great. They are slow if you go to the drive thru. I have had to wait 10-15 minutes with only two cars before me. This is each time I've tried to use the drive thru. So I opt to go inside to save myself the aggravation. So if you have time to burn to hang out in the drive thru-go for it. If not go inside for quicker service.
