“Grizzle”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I've decided I'm going to write a song dedicated to the grizzle they serve up to you here and claim it's a 20oz steak when 15 oz is nothing but fat! Just because they throw a slab of grizzled meat on your plate and give you Ice Berg lettuce with thousand island dressing on it does not a good steak joint make. Don't even get me started on the horrible ambiance. You charge those kind of prices for grizzle, then I suggest you class it up a bit. Actually, I'm going to lower your score to poor. That's how awful my experience was. Next!

“A must try when in Bloomington”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

A steak house like none other you have ever been in. Not the fanciest place, but by far the friendliest and most enjoyable experience of any steak place.

The portions are huge.... No, they are like Flintstones sized!!! Steaks are cooked to perfection. Reasonably priced and great value.

Despite being extremely crowded (packed!!) on a Saturday night, the host had the place running with the precision of a Swiss watch. Our Open Table res got us seated within 10 minutes of arrival. The waitress was fast, friendly and very helpful assisting the entire family figure out what to order.

Try it..... You will like it. Great for the entire family.

“Good food over priced”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food is good and portions are large. It is an average steakhouse but one of your only options in Bloomington.

“The BEST!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I'd heard about Little Zagreb for years (my husband is an IU alum. and has always raved about it) before actually going there.
It totally lived up to its billing.
Excellent food, great Wisconsin-supper-club atmosphere (sorry, that's my own term of reference) and good service .
We'd reserved for 10 people and at the very last minute they squeezed two more at our table even though it made the wait staff working conditions serving us rather camped.
WILL return!
