There's a reason people are lined up waiting for this place to open at 4 pm everyday! Great steaks, great staff, great meals! Try the house potatoes side. Also loved the crab cakes, and the ribs were terrific!

We went early on a Saturday night and there was still a wait, but it was only 15-20 minutes and the Patriots game was on in the waiting area so no problem here. The lobster stew alone will bring us back, it's full of lobster in a sherry cream sauce that is to die for. The steaks are great and the house potatoes are very good. The service is prompt and professional. They make a mean Margarita. The atmosphere is chic casual and is very inviting. We are looking forward to going back the prices are comparable to area restaurants. If your in the neighborhood give it a try

To echo many other reviews, this place is "worth the wait"! We managed to park next door, put our name in, and waited approx. 45 mins downstairs in the bar area. We were seated on the upper floor and waited a few minutes for our waitress, the thoughtful and well-trained Wendy -- she brought the garlic rolls over at her first contact/drink order. Wine arrived, our orders were taken, and we were served our good-sized side salads (and one tasty applesauce) shortly thereafter. All ordered the petite filet mignon medium, and all were juicy, soft, and perfectly cooked (we're steak lovers). Other sides of fries & baked beans were great. We all regret that we were too full for dessert, but there WILL be a next time thanks to the excellent food, reasonable prices, and Wendy. High marks!

Went here on the recommendation of a local. Was expecting wonderful steak, but it was pretty average. In fact, I could do better myself on my own grill. Medium rare was decidedly medium to well done. "House potatoes" were undercooked and bland. We waited nearly an hour for this. Totally not worth it. The place was packed, though, so I guess they really don't need to care much about quality. Price was pretty high for what we got.

Not only does The Steakhouse have the best beef around, they also have wonderful seafood meals. Their home made rolls are also excellent. I'm hooked, I will definitely return my next time in Maine.
