Very satisfied, good service and good value. Visited with our friends and ate off the fixed price 4 course dinner for $22. There was a good selection. They liked the potato skins for appetizer and I got the chicken shrimp beef plate appetizer which was all protein and a good selection. There was choice of salads one made at the... More

We had a great dinner there on March 6th. Steak is tender, tastey and the meals come with sides!! Hard to find that anymore!!! I had the filet, baked potato, table side salad and mixed vegetables. I think it was $32. Really good food, excellent service. It has a feeling of an old, upscale place from the 70's. It is... More

Have lived in North County for 16 years and finally got to try Hunter. The parking was a bit challenging and cramped and ended up parking in the street (went on a Saturday evening). The service was exceptionally slow but since we were out with friends this was not an issue. The appetizer sampler was great although the portions were... More

I loved the 70s vibe to the exterior, at least in the dark. The upstairs didn't attract me... it looks like someone tried to freshen it up but made it generic. But the downstairs bar is great. Slightly seedy and small. We two friends sat at the bar and had excellent cocktails...ingredients all tasted fresh, not out of a can.... More

Around for 40 years, Hunter Steakhouse is an Oceanside institution serving classic American dishes in a welcoming, homey environment. Service is friendly and efficient. The full bar provides a nice selection of wines along with throwback house cocktails such as the Hunter Manhattan and Landslide Martini. The old school menu features standard steakhouse fare from onion rings to au gratin... More

Took my mom out for a birthday lunch. She'd been to Hunters before and wanted to return. The place seems to be pretty quiet during mid-week lunches. The menu highlighted the "award winning" prime rib, so I ordered the petite cut for lunch - medium rare. It was the ideal choice. And it seemed very generous for being "petite". The... More

I hadn't been here before but I was in the area and needed some red meat so I tried this place. Since I was on my own I sat at the bar. The service was very good and since they offered prime rib for lunch I tried it. It was good but I must say it was the thinnest piece... More

Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Had the corn chowder soup and chicken salad, both delicious. The salad was huge and took half home.
