Had dinner the other night at Nick & Sam's and again it was the best. I started going there when I was still in the corporate world and they 1st came to Dallas. The fact that, after all these years they are still going strong. We don't eat out a lot anymore but when we do we always go to Nick & Sam's and never come away feeling it wasn't worth every cent.

“Full throttle food”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Drop the fact that you are a New Yorker in a Dallas Steakhouse and you are going to be treated like a King. The restaurant is very pleasing to the eye, only to be outdone by the waitress's who are so pretty that it spells absolute trouble if you bring your wife. The Mac & Cheese was the best I had in Dallas. Steaks were very consistent and very tasty. Sides were all awesome and very filling. I really enjoyed my visits here, great martini's, excellent wine list and very consistent food. One night they sent me so many side dishes to try that I had to take a nap before I drove back to Fort Worth!! Oh, and did I mention the waitress's?

Great atmosphere and service. Perfect for a celebration meal. As a vegetarian I didn't have a steak, but the sides I had instead were delicious. Others in my party had steaks and they looked delicious as well.

“Very impressive steak house”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Ate here with a group of professional colleagues in a private room. The restaurant interior beautiful, well lit and the bar and dining areas impressive. I sampled several of their appetizers, which were excellent. The Caesar salad had too much dressing, for my taste, but was very good as were the garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. Service was very attentive, even for a large, catered affair. My rib eye steak, to my taste, was very good but not excellent. Something about the spices didn't appeal to me, but several of my colleagues liked it very much.

All in all, a very impressive restaurant - easily on a par with Ruths' Chris, etc. Had I liked the steak a bit more, I would have given it 5 stars instead of four, and will definitely consider returning with my family.
