I've passed this place many times. Decided to visit it with my family(2 adults + 4 children) We had no idea on what to order. Our waitress had great suggestions from burgers to soup. Everything was perfect. Portions were very big. We even took some home. Everyone was very friendly. We will definitely visit again.

I took my family to the Good Steer on Sunday evening and nobody was disappointed. The menu has expanded since the last time I was there, but I still think the burgers remain the best choice. I had the Original Burger Supreme and I was able to substitute a Farmers salad for Fries - both were great! Others at our... More

My wife and I went here the other night as we are back in town visiting family. They have expanded their menu since our last visit. They serve good food for a reasonable price. My wife used to come here all the time when she was a kid and still loves the place.

We haven't eaten here in years so when my wife suggested it I was game. Had a very good blue cheese burger - cooked just right and the crispy onions made it nearly impossible to pick up (I managed). I really enjoyed it, and when I heard someone at another table ask for the garlic fries with their order, I... More

The Good Steer has been around for at least 40 years while so many have come and gone, so that's got to say something about it. You can always count on the fact that you'll get a good meal, but don't look to light your pallet on fire. This is standard American cuisine.

Our group had burgers, skirt steak and turkey club. Everything was okay. I did find pieces of fried onion skin in the shredded onions. Nothing stood out as terrific. Although one person in our party did enjoy the skirt steak and Manhattan clam chowder a lot. Wouldn't say this was on my all-time favorite restaurants.

The burgers we ordered were suppose to Be med-rare, but showed up med barely pink. The menu says onion rings, where they deliver greasy onion straws. Basic frozen French fries. Way way way over priced. The highlight of the meal was the napkin. The waitress was very pleasant.

The burgers taste frozen. Not fresh! Your basic precut frozen burgers. Dam dissapointed. Service and atmosphere good but I will not be going back to eat.

My family has been going to this restaurant since before I was born and I'm happy to be continuing the tradition with my husband. They have a great menu from burgers with onion straws and dream cheese sauce, to an open face turkey sandwich (with the best gravy anywhere) ! And don't forget the warm wonderful brownie for dessert... Yum!
