We were seated in the bigger barn like room for a birthday celebration and the water tasted horrible - like rusty well water. Complaining to the waitress got no help and we seriously had to go to the other side of the restaurant and ask for fresh water from them. The food was unappetizing - the Sunday specials looked like... More

My $28 petite filet was luke warm with no flavor. I had to add steak sauce. You should never do that on a well seasoned piece of meat. My potato was barely warm said well. My husband's ribeye poorly cooked with no search or flavor. Plus, the server brought his steak and said the broccoli wasn't ready yet. He was... More

Nothing to complain about. Food, service, and restaurant was excellent. Kind of a long drive for us (two hours each way), but definitely worth it. Good if you are traveling and want to stop for something other than McDonalds. Two of us had ribeye steaks. You get a choice of sizes, the biggest being 20 oz. The other two in... More

We did a date night here with another couple and I had always heard about it. Advice: go early! Although the line goes quickly and there is a lot of room, it's very popular. The food is filling, comforting, and delicious. The only negative I had was that I had ordered medium rare on a filet and got medium raw.

The first time I came here was in the early 1990's and it was a great place. Ask for the steak to be seasoned and you'll be pleasantly surprised. The last time I was here was just this past August and It was decent then. Unfortunately, I went there today with my daughter and my wife-it was not good at... More

Over the years I have spent many celebratory dinners at the Beef House. I've always looked forward to going there but after our meal last Sunday I'm not going back. It was my birthday and we had a party of ten. We arrived at about 12:45 and were seated in the annex area at the long tables and what I... More

My wife and I stopped on a Monday night. I hadn't been to the Beef House since probably the late 80's. It looked exactly the same. Some may see that as bad (dated), but I didn't think that it mattered that much. The service was excellent, everything was clean, and the food was good. We had the 4 ounce dinner... More

After hearing rave reviews about this restaurant from my better half, we were passing though the area and I was able to experience it first hand. We had the pleasure of enjoying everything from drinks to desserts along with the company of some friends of ours that live in that area and are "regulars" there. The rolls were memorable! Take...

This is off West I-74 Exit 63 and is a big restaurant located in a 2000 population since 1964 and is almost always full of customers every time I stop by to eat. Inside is a big restaurant, and all tables and chairs are solid oak and has cloth napkins. Has a full bar and next door is a separate... More

The food is decent but not great. Prices are high for what you get. Sure, you will be full because of the giant rolls with strawberry jam and apple butter, but you can get a better steak or burger at nearly any neighborhood bar & grill. The place needs to be thoroughly cleaned and updated. Oh, and their Wi-Fi didn't... More
