“Overpriced and salty steak.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

The Cub is a venerable Shreveport hangout. It is famous for its steaks (and not for its ambience which does not exist). It's a hole-in-the-wall. Despite the diner atmosphere, I love the potatoes au gratin-- but who wouldn't as they are loaded with butter, cheese and sour cream! The wedge salad is a joke as it is tasteless iceberg lettuce. The house dressing is good, though. And the steaks are waaaaaay too expensive. Wil is a great cook but he has a heavy hand with the seasoning rub. Try this place once just to say you've been there, but bring you credit card! By the way, no-one under 21 can eat here, as you have to walk through the bar to get to the restaurant and they are VERY keen on carding everyone!

Great steaks in a back room of a biker bar type setting. Truly unique dining experience

“Don't Drink Too Much”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2011

Get to the bar early for a few cocktails, then ease into your table. Good little wine selection but cut to the chase. Steak is why you are here. Any steak, wedge with house, and au gratin potatoes is all you need to know. Don’t be messing around with stupid questions about the menu. Get you drink on, and satisfy your red meat cravings.

“The CUB!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2010

The Cub resturant is a great little steakhouse tucked inside a little dive bar in Shreveport.
They have a few seafood and chicken items but the star of the menu is the filet. As good as any you will get anywhere. The au gratin potatoes and soft shell crab are also a must. If you can find it... Go there and enjoy a true original.
