T-bone steakhouse:Great views, good steak, so-so service.. Well, after reading several great reviews about this place, I figured It was time for my wife and I to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary here. Easy to find, huge parking lot and the views of the city/valley are spectactular. There are people riding horses right up to the back of the restaurant, hitching their horses and walking inside for a nice steak. We were seated immediately, and our drink order was taken right away. The drinks came soon after, and the waiter took our order. The salad bar is just like everyone says: a huge bowl of iceberg lettuce, some weird cold green beans and onions(not that great), and 4 types of salad dressing. They do have croutons. The bowls for the salad were filthy and wet(like they had been half-ass washed). We had to sort through a few before we found a few clean ones...We ordered our steaks. My wife ordered the NY strip, which was $18.99, and I ordered the 24oz porterhouse which was $26.99. They both came out exactly as ordered, with a big bowl of tasteless beans and four slices of thick wheat bread. Sides do not come with the meal, so if you want a baked potato that's $2 extra. They are good, but should be included with the steak. The steak was excellent, very juicy and tender. It did lack flavor, we ended up drenching our steaks in A-1 sauce. When the waiter brought our food out, he just dropped it off and didn't even ask if we wanted any condiments or steak sauce(at a steak joint??). He only came to check on us twice throughout the meal, and the first time was 10 minutes after he dropped the food off. By then, I was halfway done with my tasteless steak and was ready for some sauce. He brought the sauce over and we finished our meal. I would like to add that there were two different tables with two attractive females at each table very close to our table. The waiter was VERY MUCH more attentive to them than he ever was to us. He must have checked on them every 3 minutes. Oh well, not sure if we will go back or not, the service was pretty bad, and the food was just ok.
TBONE... True Cowboy STEAKHOUSE!. LOVE this place! If you want STEAK, this is the place! The steaks are grilled to your liking... true "Cowboy Steakhouse". This is a place where you can come relaxed. Picnic tables, sawdust and a great view of the valley complete the perfect date night! Worth the drive and the money! Simple menu that is posted on the board, simple salad, and beans... nothing complicated about this place. If you are looking for a RELAXED, cozy, mom-pop like restaurant, this is the place. Portions are huge! Did I mention the awesome view?
Read this before you eat here!.
We just got back from the T-Bone Steak House and based on all the 5-star reviews, its fair to say we were expecting a lot better. A steak, ordered medium, was delivered well done. Mashed potatoes were delivered cold. The bread included free with dinner is just wheat Texas Toast, so I ordered garlic bread instead and got wheat Texas Toast with garlic spread on it (for an additional $1.79!)
No french fries. No fryer at all. I asked for no beans, but my girlfriend wanted her beans, so they put her beans on my plate and got my food soaked in the bean juice
They expect you to use the simple fork and steak knife (all the silverware you get) to eat all of your food. When the beans are ordered, a spoon, only then, is included.
The restaurants menu is extremely limited and several items are unnecessarily over-priced. This is the full menu:
24 oz Porterhouse $26.99
One Pound T-Bone $18.99
8 oz USDA Choice Filet $19.99
14 oz New York Strip $18.99
8 oz Grilled Salmon $13.99
12 oz Top Sirloin $15.99
Smoked Half Chicken $13.99
8 oz Sirloin steak and Chicken Combo $14.99
Two 6 oz Pork Chops $12.99
6 oz Pan Fried Trout $13.99
1/2 Pound CheeseBurger $9.99
All dinners include a salad bar*, cowboy beans and bread with butter.
The salad bar is just lettuce. No croutons, no bacon bits, no cucumbers, no nothing. JUST LETTUCE. There was also a green bean salad. This is salad?
For desert they offer:
T-Bone Hot Brownie $5.00
Apple Pie $3.50
Ala Mode $4.50
Ice Cream (dish of cinnamon or vanilla) $2.99
Ala Carte, you can order:
Baked Potato $1.99
Red Skinned Mashed Potatoes (plain - no gravy offered) $1.99
Garlic Toast (mentioned above) $1.79
Cobb of Corn $1.99
For kids they have:
1/4 pound burger $3.50 (add $1 for cheese!)
1/4 chicken $4.50
6 oz sirloin steak $6.50
So, as you can see, $3 for a scoop of vanilla ice cream, $1 for a slice of cheese, and $1.79 for two slices of Texas Toast with garlic spread on them. Ridiculous!
yee ha. Out of the way, up the mountain..worth the drive. Casual cowboy atmosphere with all the meats grilled out front over a massive pit. Busy as all get out when we went, so we waited at the bar and ended up eating our meal there due to the great bartender. The beans need to be spiced and flavored more, but the meat was top quality and the price was $10 cheaper than a comparable NY steak elsewhere.
No bones about it, this is it!. If you need to take our aunt Helen from Michigan to a real cowboy place this is it. The menu is about as simple as a crossword puzzle for super modles. It has your choice of steak, steak or steak. But do not let that stop you from enjoying one of the best steaks this town has to offer, not to mention the view.
