    We went on Halloween night, so it wasn't crowded at all, which was to be expected. However, the service was kind of slow - it felt like it took forever to get our food. The server seemed to be new at serving, as she came to take our orders and then realized she didn't have anything to write them down on. There was also live music in the bar, which was nice, but a little loud for our liking. Next time we go on a live music night, we will be sitting in the dining room! The food was delicious, however!

    app: Mediterranean shrimp -outstanding. Soup: Tomato Bisque - Great. Entrée: Bone-in rib eye - Very good, and cooked to specifications.. Bread basket: Just ordinary small bread pieces, could have been a little more elegant ! Two small steaks,(with with crab meat) last item on the menu, could have been char-prepared. Nothing special.

    We have been to the Black Steer many times and have never been disappointed. The food was great and the service is usually outstanding . My party usually likes to dine and enjoy the live entertainment, unfortunatly like many other establishment they were not set up for live entertainment . You must sit in the lounge area where it is first come first served to get a table. Then after the "Diners " are done they come into the lounge where it gets to be too crowed and way to loud , then it is hard to enjoy the entertain ment.

    I made a reservation online which was very easy. We went with two other couples for dinner. The food was excellent (filet and pork chops), the atmosphere was comfortable and it wasn't loud so we were able to converse easily. We stayed for a short period after we paid the bill and never felt like we needed to rush out of there.

    When new owners took over there stated intent was to elevate the quality of food and service. To their credit, they accomplished that! However, as of late the quality is on the decline and the prices are going up. They are starting to lose some credibility!

    This visit to Black Steer was not as good as many of my past visits. Our waitress Pam was pretty much on autopilot. My skirt steak was tough and over cooked and I was prepared to let her know. She walked up and said "how's the food girls? " and then answered her own question by saying "its good" and walked away, never waiting for me to reply or making eye contact. There was another issue with the bill. We had a coupon for $10 off $50. We spent $49.97 and she said we needed to order something else. Okay, I ordered a dessert to go. BUT once we reviewed bill, she UNDERcharged us for the coke by .50 cents and by doing so, caused me to have to spend $7 on the smallest piece of carrot cake I ever had from a restaurant.

    I made reservations to ensure my impatient father-in-law would not endure delay anticipating his "free" lunch - I was buying. We all enjoyed the stuffed mushroom appetizer and french onion soup. These 2 items are must haves when dining at Black Steer. My daughter, wife and I ordered filet and my in laws had tilapia. We were all very satisfied with our meals and I was happy with moderately priced lunch for 5.

    Purchased a Groupon type deal for Black Steer Charhouse since many of my locals had recommended it. Ambience was OK. Server was attentive. Food, that's another story. My companion ordered the pork chops. They were tough and dry in some sections and fine in others. Completely uneven cook. My chicken parmesan arrived with a pasta that was not spaghetti and the chicken was thin and had a glob of mozzarella on top barely melted. Ordered a side of garlic mashed potatoes as they are my weakness. Arrived cold and stiff with a glob of jarred garlic on the top. Not at all appetizing.

    As repeat dining and lounge band listening/dancing Itasca area customers, Black Steer of Elk Grove Village can always be counted on for good, food, spirits, service, and cleanliness. Now that summer is here, the outdoor patio is a awesome place to dine and listen to the live music. I think the establishment can be known for the customers it keeps...a good sign to us all. Thanks Black Steer owners and staff!

    Our server was a dud. When we didn't immediately know what we wanted to drink, he said that he would come back. It was 10 minutes later. Our meal was average food at high price. Only offered additional to the gentleman in the group. While making a request server walked away. Never asked if we wanted dessert, which we did. The bill took forever. This was not the first time with the same complaint...service. I thought I would try again but I'm done.

    I was looking for a good restaurant for fathers day, but didn't want the usual hour wait at the regular chain steak houses. gave this place a try because it accepted reservations. the soup was excellent. the steaks were good. quality matched up with a longhorn or outback type place. and they had a little more variety with prime rib, and lamb chops. cost a couple of bucks more per person than your mid level chain, but for fathers day the extra couple bucks was worth not having to wait to eat.

    This has been our friends first dinner at Black Steer. They thought it was a great experience. We ate outside on a patio. The drinks were reasonably priced. The food was great. My friend usually doesn't have a kind word to say about his steak dinner at a restaurant, but was ecstatic about his rib eye steak and the way that it was cooked (medium rare). All in all a big THUMBS UP.

    We had 18 guests in to Chicago for a training session and chose the Black Steer Charhouse for our dinner outing. I set up our reservation on Open Table and someone from the restaurant called to confirm our reservation. On the day of our reservations, Helen called to confirm again. I advised that we wanted to pick 3 entrees from the banquest menu for our guest and also gave her our appetizer and drink requests. She set up menus for our group with the three entrees to pick from and had them ready at each seat for our guests to choose from. Our appetizers (preordered via the Open Table website) were served shortly after we sat down. It made the planning so much easier than normal for our large groups. Thank you.
