I've been here several times in the last month since my first time and what keeps me coming back is the hamburgers they make. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I will definitely be going back! !

The Grubsteak is the kind of restaurant that fits everyones culinary tastes - big portions for big eaters and small meals for seniors. A terrific selection of salads, seafood, steaks and comfort food.

Mid afternoon meal: The steak was very good, cooked as I asked. It was very thick. The service was friendly and we like the comfortable, country atmosphere with mining decorations. Great coffee.

After a long day hiking and exploring the fossil beds and time for a good meal. A casual local restaurant with good food. Clean, good lighting, friendly and a pleasant meal.

Stopped here because we had spent the day at the fossil beds on our way home. We were hot and hungry. Our server treated us very kindly. Brought ice water right away and gave us time to look over the menus. Quite a selection. I ended up with the Grubsteak rustler, hamburger on sour dough with bacon, grilled onions and... More

We live in John Day and the Grubsteak is one of our favorite places to eat out. The food is good and the wait staff are experienced and friendly. If you get a chance to eat in John Day make it the Grubsteak
