An interesting evening. It has lower lights at night and little white lights around the mirrors. It has a "clubby" ambiance with a fireplace. I was surprised live music was playing since it was a Wednesday. Nice, service people, good food, ambiance.

Late dinner on a Friday. I had the Stuffed and Wrapped Chicken. Excellent. It's an older place in Bakersfield. Atmosphere is like an old cocktail lounge. We keep getting the same server. She knows food service but she needs an attitude adjustment. The assistant runner was fabulous. She needs to serve. Her name is Brooke. Love seeing her every time.... More

Staff are very attentive: Within a matter of three minutes, three different staff might check in to make sure everything is good. That's a disadvantage to the "team" approach to service. Lighting is dim, and energy is high, with the noise level eventually uncomfortable. But the food is good, as one would expect from a long-time Bakersfield classic. The menu... More

I love the food here, but the atmosphere almost trumps the food. It's like stepping back 30-40 years in time, love it! Steaks are always good, delicious hamburgers, love the dinner salad. Prices tend to be a little high for some items; $4.00 for ice tea seems excessive to me. Overall a great place to dine.

The reason I chose this place for anniversary dinner, wasn't for the food, but for cool retro ambience, and the great music and the dance floor. Place reminds me of place where Martin and Sinatra might dine. My husband and I had the filet mignon special with mushroom demi glaze cooked medium rare. Perfection. $15 corkage fee for champagne we... More

Been here several times for the steak salad and yummy dressing. It was always good before. Today we got wilted lettuce, no cheddar cheese nor onions. We had to get the attention of rhe waitress to ask for it. Also, the dressing was nothing like before. Not even close. How sad. No attempt to make up for the sad salad... More

I'm still upset, a few weeks later, after getting the lobster and mac and cheese. I took a picture of the lobster, because it was horrific. 6 tiny pieces, almost impossible to see. I ordered take out, so maybe they thought I wouldn't complain, as I would have done in the restaurant if I saw small bits of lobster. I... More

KC Steakhouse is right out of the 50's and 60's. Their food is premium and the servers art top notch. The booths are luxe and you think Frank Sanatra and Dean Martin just might come in. They have live music some nights
