Listen up folks - was at this Establishment this past week, if there is a negative rating system this restaurant would get a -10!! That s right I would rate it as one of the ten worst steakhouses I have ever eaten out. I don t mind paying for a good meal, but let me tell you, I never ate!!! We had a group of 6 dine in this Establishment on Friday night. We were among only 18 or so dinners in the place. The evening started with waiting for 20 minutes to get drinks and having the waiter come back to us with our drinks and telling us the bartender was too busy talking to the two girls at the bar. Dinner started ok, but when the overpriced steaks were delivered that is where it bombed. Two of us had to return our steaks, one for being well done instead of med-rare and the other for tasting like they decided to give the beef a brining. It was not edible!!! After everyone else finished their steaks which most of them could have used a saw to cut, our steaks were brought out. Well, you would think someone from the staff would hang out until you tasted and checked your meal?? NOT!! One steak was RAW and the other was RANCID! Well after the bad steak incident, we get our bill. Well hold on to your seat folks, you need a lot of cash to pay the bill. Watch the drinks, $36 for a glass of house wine and $32 for a double mixed drink!!! Spoke to the General Manager who refused to give us the name or information on the owner and his attitude was basically, well we took the two steaks off the bill! Really, thats all you can do for such a poor experience. My advise to anyone considering going there, DON T!!!
A Stone-cold Tourist Trap. I brought my wife and mother, we skipped the appetizers, we each had a steak, vegetable, potato, shared one bottle of wine and each had a desert.
With a 15% tip, the check came to $527.00.
The appalling thing about this experience wasn t the the mind-numbing price tag. For this sort of money one should reasonably anticipate an above average meal. However, the steaks were tough and not cooked to order. Every single one of them! We spent the entire meal vigorously sawing with our serrated knives the meat from the sinew and gristle and chewing like we were eating cheap overcooked pork chops at a roadside diner. The vegetables that came with this meal arrived under-cooked and only slightly warmer than room temperature. The potatoes au gratin were semi-raw.
When you are ordering à la carte (paying separately for everything on your plate) and paying almost $100 just for the steak, this isn t just a disgrace, in my opinion, there is something else going on. It is inconceivable that the management is not aware of the inferior quality of the produce they are sending out to the table. Nor is it possible that they have not read or heard any feedback in this regard.
Several days later, still stinging from the feeling that I had been cheated like a poor dumb rube, I called the restaurant and asked to speak to the manager. He was a polite young man. He listened attentively and regretfully apologized and thanked me for telling him all about it. I hung up feeling pretty sure that he had heard all of this many times before, had apologized many times before and was really not in a position to do anything about it or lose any sleep over it.
You have been warned. This establishment is in the sheep shearing business...... and you are the sheep.
Went to the Sto ckyard 11/30 for business meeting. I had read some reviews and knew there could be some issues. The building and furnishings were very interesting as is the history. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, but did seem to push the highest end entrees. We started with the tuna and shrimp cocktail appetizer which was very good.
We then ordered salads and dinner. I had the Caesar salad which was average but tasted good. From there I went to my entree of rare Wet Aged NY strip off the regular menu and the Au Gratin potatoes. My steak was shockingly POOR, it was poorly cut and oddly cooked. There was a definite charcoal flavor but almost like the grill was not up to temp. I did the best I could with the steak but just nibbled at it. The potatoes were different but not remarkable. I would think that for one of the Top Ten Steakhouses in the US they would have done much better. I have been to some of the real steakhouses in the US, this is not one of them.
I finished dinner with an espresso, skipped dessert because I didn't want to give them anymore money (even though I was not buying). Seriously folks, find somewhere else to spend your hard earned money.
the rating I gave is based on the overall experience. The food was very tasty and though it's overpriced, we knew that going in. The waiter was nice enough although a bit much for my taste. What I didn't like: ordered the aged filet that was about $100. It was delicious but I didn't eat much of it so to save it for my husband to enjoy for lunch the following day. The waiter cleared our plates while we were talking and I assumed the large remaining portion of my filet was going to be put in a box and returned to me....nope. It was gone! I purposesly did not eat much of it just so I could take it home and felt robbed! I've never experienced this before and we eat out no less than 4 times a week...every week. I don't think I'll go back.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY...WE WERE HOODWINKED BY WAITRESS IN ORDERING THE SPECIAL WHICH WAS $80...A PARTY OF 6 BILL WAS OVER 1000..
FOOD WAS MEDICORE...WE SHOULD HAVE GONE TO MORTONS, OR RUTH CHRIS...
I TRIED THE LOCAL FLAVOR AND GOT TOOK.....BE CARFUL VERY EXPENSIVE, FAMILY PORTIONS OF VEGATABLES WERE A SPOONFUL EACH....
DO NOT GO!!!!!!!!
Most horrible night of our life. We called for reservations and shuttle service. The hostess said the shuttle was not running that Sunday evening. We ended having to pay $60 for a shuttle. Once we left the Grand Ole Opry Hotel, the shuttle was right in front of us! We got there, and the front doorman stated they had a shuttle, I told him not to go there. Once in side the hostess, stated they were just to full to bring us in. There were only 2 people in the shuttle. A bald man, manager, I guess, came out and said nothing they can do, go sit down. The hostess, started eating from something behind her desk. They could care less. My husbands steak was ordered medium rare, came out well done. We never got any kind of an apology from management. I was in tears, we were treated so rudely. The food was not at all good for the price we had to pay and the treatment we endured from this horrible place. We will never go back. Once back in Memphis, TN we went out to a wonderful place for our 26th wedding anniversary celebration. It actually deserves zero stars, but it would not let me post without at least one, it does not deserve.(ZERO STARS IS MY CHOICE)
Folks, I implore you to think about your decision to go to this restaurant. Disappointing is a big understatement. While the atmosphere and wait staff were good, the food was WAY OVER PRICED. The waiters should be called con artists as everything they do, and I mean everything they do is about upselling. I've eaten at many fine places and I've never paid more for less. A Kobe steak (5-6 oz.) $109. One 3.5 pound lobster, $140. That appetizer platter they push upon you, $290. I think you are starting to get the picture. Tourists beware. You've been warned. The Hilton pushes this restaurant. I think they are getting a kickback. Run! Run!
