I ordered the NY strip with a sweet potato, the steak was tender, but I wasn't impressed, steak lacked flavor. Sweet potato was small and plain. I prefer Outback Steakhouse to Frontier. Service was good.

They have a happy hour menu for early dinner.Food is great and service also good.Its a large restaurant and not crowded.Its little over priced but if you can plan for early dinner then you can save some 10$ per plate on select menus. There fried calamari is also good.

I was told of this place by people that had visited in the past , and had high hopes of finding my new best steak house. right off the bat it's no cattleman's steak house, and it doesn't even feel country.just like a plain diner. The steaks had good flavor but my ribeye was not marbled and a little chewy,and... More

This place is in desparate need of a rennovation. Walking in, the restaurant is covered in hideous red colors and the fact that they use tablecloths is amusing; considering the rest of the decor....you immediately feel like you're back in 1983 at a steakhouse. Going to the menu, it is a basic steakhouse menu, nothing special. We ordered the filet... More

My coworkers and myself pulled up to this restaurant on a Wednesday evening and there were about 2 cars in the huge parking lot.  We got seated and noticed how big the restaurant is.  The server was courteous.  Food came out quickly.   It was decent but had a little too much seasoning on the vegetables.  Nothing special about this place...

Well I don't expect 5 Stars in remote locations. That is not what you get here....However the Service and BBQ was SPOT ON. The Ribs, Porterhouse, and Lobster were all done to perfection. You should pass by the overproced Hard Rock and visit Frontier. The history of this place is worth you visiting and supporting a local business.

I was disappointed when we pulled up and I seen the place, it looks a little run down but I thought we would give it a try anyway because some times those are the best places to eat and FYI, inside looks the same. Checked out the menu and couldn't believe the prices for the place, they're proud and I... More
