Bates Steakhouse and Saloon
Bates Steak House & Saloon offers a family style dining with a touch of old west. We serve our soup in a Dutch oven and the potatoes in a cast iron skillet so you can dig in like they did in the old western days. Our 4-course meals start with our hearty vegetable soup. Next is our spring mix salad. Our cowboy spuds and rice pilaf come with your entree. But it doesn't end there. Make sure you save a little room for a root beer float or an after dinner liqueur. We offer a selection of choice great steaks and a wonderful seafood selection. Our Chicken dishes are also works of art. We have a full watering hole and an extensive wine and beer list.
Went here for our 7 year anniversary by recommendation from some friends. I was in food service in upscale restaurants for years and I was definitely impressed. I hate going to a steakhouse and getting a tiny, ill prepared steak, but I was not disappointed. My steak was very tender and cooked perfectly. My wife ordered the full rack of ribs and they were amazing. They were smoked, perfectly caramelized outside and moist meat inside. She was able to pull the bones cleanly leaving the meat intact, if that gives you any clue to their tenderness. 4 course meal was a bit spendy, but we will definitely return for atmosphere and abundant delicious food.
I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed. Is it that hard to refill water? Since when do waiters not have time to actually write down your order CORRECTLY? I guess, Bates Steakhouse has lowered its standards. My meal was a disaster, save your money and just go down the street to McDonalds, you might not be eating real chicken nuggets, but at least your eating something(implying I had to wait 30 minutes for meal, which was wrong)....thankfully it was not the worst dinner I have ever had at a restaurant, it comes in a close second.
Should be the Bates Motel as scarry as our meal was.Over priced,poorly cooked meat,skimpy salad,funky tepid soup,mediocre service.Do not pass GO, drop your dollars.Not trying to be a total hater but I've had better meat/service at Sizzler.Too bad the Benz Dealer forced Wally to close his Waterfront Bar & Grill,now that was good food & service at a fair price.This was the first & last time for Bates,sorry pal but you bite rocks.
