“Old school steakhouse. Unique!”

This is one of my dad's favorite hangs from his days as a student at IU. Great steaks, with plenty of leftover potential.

“Plan to share an entree”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Little Zagreb has always been a favorite with me and a must do when I am in Bloomington. The food portions are huge - my mother ordered the stuffed pepper which came with a meatball; the stuffed pepper was enough for two at least, and the meatball, another two. Although this restaurant is known for its steaks, I always order the meatballs & my leftovers can feed me and a friend the next day. You can just order the meatball appetizer and a side potato. The salad is not memorable - but the blue cheese dressing is. I love the wine list - nice choices by the glass as well as half bottles.

The servers are great. They are helpful and friendly and they work together to take care of the customers. It is an upbeat and happy wait staff that makes you feel right at home. This is a casual place with no pretensions. I love the atmosphere although it has been very busy the last few years and it is crowded and noisy, but still a lot of fun. If it's busy, don't plan to have any quiet conversations. I recommend making reservations.

“Bring your appetite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

This is 2 of my children's favorite resturarnt in Bloomington when Dad is paying. They were both IU grads. The servers are great. The steaks are wonderful except they are so large. Easily 3 people could share the steak for one. I had the kabobs which was more than enough especially after sharing a shrimp cocktail and the spicy meatballs. The one downside is they do not have draft beer. They have wine and beer by the bottle. They have a good beer selection.

“Best steaks in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Don't come here expecting a fancy meal. You will get the best steak in town, along with a baked potatoes, salad and grilled bread.
