This place was walking distance from our hotel and the front desk person recommended it versus the national chain next door. Doh! I should have checked out both before committing. So, is anything wrong here? Well, nothing distressing, but consider this: the menu and decor are circa 1974 but the prices are 2017. The food is fine, just not anything... More

My partner asked to go here for his birthday as he has been curious since we moved back to the area. Since they advertise they are known for their sirloin, I ordered one and he ordered the teriyaki one. He enjoyed the teriyaki but I found mine to be so-so, not something I'd go back for, especially for the price.... More

I was in the mood for a nice steak and the Hardcover has traditionally been one of the best around. However my medium-rare steak was served well done. The middle was gray, not pink. Yes, I sent it back. The server was ticked and only marginally apologetic. To be fair the manager came by, apologized, and offered us a dessert.... More

Had a wonderful steak dinner here. Top sirloin cooked perfectly and so tender. Started our meal with a nice cup of clam chowder. Nice salad bar with a large block of cheese you can cute how much you want and nice fresh bread. Excellent wait staff.

Had a surprise birthday party for my aunt and the party was great. Had one of the best steak au poivres ever! They have a traditional salad bar and some terrific cuts of steak! Service was great and the environment is very nice. Traditional decor with a fireplace, nothing template-y at all. A very nice steak house, not too dressy... More

Like so many restaurants in the area, not terrible, but not worth traveling far for. Husband asked for steak med rare. Came almost black outside, bloody (not pink) inside. He said it was not trimmed well, either; don't know if that's a supplier or kitchen problem. Would have sent it back. but didn't want to inconvenience the folks we were... More

I hate to do this but by dinner bill was so large I had to say a word or two. Place smelled musty when we first walked in and our waiter hurried to light our candle to kill the smell. Salad bar was nice. As our plates started to come one by one our disappointment came over. My scallops were... More

My husband took me to what used to be my favorite restaurant for my birthday meal. We ordered filet mignon with baked potato and chicken with rice pilaf and each came with the salad bar. We filled our salad plates and just started to eat when the appetizer arrived. We set the salad aside and had the shared appetizer.We decided... More

First of all I have to say the servers were great and the salad bar was wonderful as usual. We were there to celebrate my 75th birthday as it's one of our favorite restaurants. The sirloin steak for two was so chewy and you could hardly cut it with the steak knife. It looked so delicious when served. This is... More

We enjoyed our meal and the service. Our first visit to Hardcover. I enjoyed filet mignon and had ordered it medium rare and it was perfect. My husband had baked stuffed shrimp and scallops and was completely satisfied. The salad bar was a surprise both because I haven't seen one in ages and it was so good. Very generous size... More
