Diner Reviews
  • "I am sorry to say I did not love this place. Came for lunch so the restaurant was pretty empty and minus any food aromas in an empty restaurant it smelled kind of musty and like old carpet. And the carpet looked really old and worn which was unappetizing making me hope the kitchen looked cleaner. Old is ok if it feels well kept but this did not :-( Plus it is dark and dank in there. Ordered the shrimp lime salad and the shrimp had too much shell and was flavorless and tough. The dressing was more like a sauce and did not complement the salad at all :-( Server was friendly enough. I did not hear any fellow diners in my party of 5 saying they were enjoying their food either… Nothing made me want to return to this place."

  • "Damon's has been our special occasion destination for over 40 years - the food has always been excellent and still is every bit as outstanding as ever!!! It's THE Place to get the absolute best beef tenderloin around! Service has diminished - Wait staff is slow and forgetful and neglects to check back periodically to see if you need anything. The noise level is very high - The hostess seated us in the center of the main dinning room and we became literally surrounded by large loud and noisy groups. A bad choice, in my opinion, by the Hostess for a party of 2 - and this was EARLY in the evening, a 4:45 PM Reservation, well before the mid-evening rush of patrons who have already spent an hour in the Bar."

  • "We like having dinner at Damon's before going to the Glendale Centre Theatre. Its very convenient since the theater is just across the way. They have a great early bird dinner menu, make good drinks, and also have a nice variety of other entrees at regular prices. The staff is always friendly and takes good care of the diners. They understand the need to have our dinner without rushing due to the show time."

  • "Our family has been dining at Damon's for various occasions for over 40 years. We love their specialty drinks, Mai Tai and Chi Chi (watch out they don't make whippy drinks here). Still one of the best steaks around. Love the atmosphere and the friendly staff, many of whom we have known for years."

  • "Like life, restaurants get old and slowly die out and disappear. That's what has happened with Damons. It was a great restaurant in the past but like everything else it is now run down and old, not only in appearance but in its food and service. The only thing that has remained high is the prices."

  • "It's like the Tiki Room at Disneyland opened up a steak house. A surprisingly good one! Drinks and steaks were awesome, and our server was personable and attentive. Everything was much better than expected."

  • "Damon's has gone down hill a bit, as the prices have risen over the years.... Still like them, and the Mai Tais and BBQ are good, but the place could use a good cleaning."

  • "I have been dining at Damons since the early 70's when it was down on Central Avenue which happened to be around the corner from work. I live down is the South Bay area in Torrance now but I have had season tickets to the Dodgers since 1974 and Glendale is close enough to enjoy a pre-game dinner at Damons from time to time and my wife loves the food and the steaks. My only wish is that the bar stocked Finlandia vodka for a nice martini or Hendricks gin for a great gin & tonic, stock that in the bar and I am a happy camper. One of the few places in LA where the steaks are as good as they are is at Clearman's North Woods Inn in Rosemead."

  • "The filet, medium rare with an extra char always comes out perfectly cooked, great Mai Tais, a house salad and twice baked potato makes a great but not a fancy meal."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Best prime rib I've ever had. Tender, flavorful, love the creamed horseradish and the dinner salad was a nice size. My boyfriend ordered the ribs, but he thought they were too spicy and the cottage cheese side order tasted odd to him, however, instead of complaining, he just didn't eat it. I would go back to Damon's for the prime rib. They need to do something about the parking meters out back. We had to keep going out at dinner to add more coins to the meter, as you cannot add as many as you want."

  • "Damon's is a classic tiki bar and steakhouse tucked away in Glendale. You'll find the typical tiki drinks such as a Mai Tai and a Singapore Sling in the bar along with plenty of local patrons watching baseball amidst a decor of bamboo and tiki idols. The restaurant side of Damon's is a great place place for steak. Twice baked potatoes, garlic bread and a killer salad all add up to a really great, classic LA steakhouse experience."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We always enjoy the food and ambiance of Damon's. It's one of those restaurants where one feels relaxed and comfortable. On this particular occasion the staff seemed a bit too light and it was obvious that our server was a bit overwhelmed; however, we were not in a hurry and enjoyed a satisfying evening. We ordered a wide variety of entrees. The steaks and coconut shrimp were especially delicious. A very good wine list, but should also try their famous Mai Tai."

  • "Had a reservation for 2 at 8pm. Got there & they said a table was being prepared, but we could wait in the lounge area. Waited about 5-10 minutes before a drink order was taken, but once we ordered they came right away. Drank & chatted for about 15 minutes until I went back & asked about our table & they had forgotten about us. We were seated at the first available table, and received two complimentary drinks for the error. The top sirloin was great, as was the twice-baked potato. The Mai Tai, Monkey's Uncle, and Blue Hawaiian were delicious. There was a musician playing in the lounge by the desk, but once we got to the dinner seating, he couldn't really be heard, which was preferred. Really nice tiki lounge vibe. Overall good time."

  • "We already stuffed ourselves, but one of us had to have dessert.... there's always one in the crowd that insists on dessert, right? So we all got something. The chocolate cake was incredible. It rivals if not beats Claim Jumpers' signature cake. I will go back now just for that. By the way, the shrimp cocktail was huge. Well worth the price. The cocktail sauce nicely spicy. The house salad seemed very wilted and not very cold, like the bowl it was made in wasn't chilled or the lettuce mix was just sitting around outside the cooler waiting to be used. My friends liked their salad selections. Finally, our server seemed disinterested. Maybe it was a busy Monday night. We always had to signal to get her attention."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "It's been a favorite of my family's for generations and seeing as how I'm not a local, I was never able to done here until recently. It was a VERY reasonable prices whereas I work at a steakhouse that are not as reasonable. I guess you do get what you pay for. I was not impressed with the food. The beets in the salad were quite overwhelming but I ate some of it. I ordered a filet medium rare and it came out very rare whereas my boyfriend ordered a filet medium rare as well and it came out much better. Mine wasn't edible to me so we just traded. All in all, the reason for the highish review is that our server was a fun lady. She didn't check on us again till we were done eating, but she did seem somewhat busy with larger parties."

  • "Good food and a friendly staff. The bar area is noisy."

  • "We made reservations before a play and were able to make the performance. The food was plentiful and tasty. Portions are large. There is an old fashioned ambiance that we enjoyed. The only down side was the obnoxiously loud woman at the table behind us. Her side of the conversation (which monopolized most of her table's convo) was able to be heard by half the restaurant. Use your indoor voices people, the rest of the world really isn't interested in your blog. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our meal."

  • "I have been coming to your restaurant since the mid-eighties and my wife has since the mid-seventies. We have boxed the compass of occasions and "Damons" remains consistently good on all fronts. The cocktails are strong and generous, the food rich and delicious and all topped by outstanding service and all wrapped up in a tropical setting to rival "Gilligan's Island" . KEEP IT UP!!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "I like this place for its kitchy-ness. the Hawaiian theme is cute and a old fashioned change of pace. But this is also what makes it a target for closure. The old school charm will fade from those looking for the new hip thing, so this becomes a refuge for middle class people looking for a gigantic value meal. The food itself is just sort of bland. And the fact that they actually do not have Kona beer really insults the spirit of the place. It's just sort of Trader Vics meets Dinah's. But the most evident issue is that this is simply not a steak house. They have steak, but so does Sizzler. they really need to step it up and start offering a few serious cuts, maybe as specials to get the ball rolling. The BBQ sauce is way to sugary."

  • "Food was delish and service outstanding. Mary was awesome. You must ask for her! You also must get a Mai Tai! They make them perfect! The french bread and house salad started our meal off right. My dad and I ordered the tenderloins. EXCELLENT!!! You have to get the creamed corn and twice baked potatoes. It was his bday and they bought him a piece of cake and waitress sang. I believe it was free of charge. so nice! If there was one piece of constructive criticism I would have to say it was slightly warm where we were sitting (a booth in the back/side of restaurant) and would possibly say to turn up air conditioner. Regardless, we will return."

  • "This is a popular place so recommend reservations during dinner hour. Metered parking available adjacent to restaurant. Season ticket holder at Glendale Center Theatre and dining at Damon's prior makes the evening complete."

  • "We have season tickets and go to Damon's before going on to the theatre for a play. Always enjoy our meals there, good food, friendly staff (Helen was our server Thur.) a fellow golfer too. Fair price for the meals with good quality and quantity. Not too noisy so we can talk across the table and can hear our dinner guests."

  • "Damon's has been around for a long time. You can still count on their famous salad and a delicious steak. It can be noisy, but the fish tank and the food outweigh the noise! Enjoy!"

  • "The waitress never came to check on us. My daughter's drink glass had brown chucking finger prints on it and she had to wait a very long time to get a new drink in a clean glass. The waitress never asked if we needed anything when our food came. We always had to go find the waitress to get what we needed. It took the waitress a very long time to give us our check."

  • "Don't go here its aweful! The food had no flavor and was just bad. Everything was crammed on the plate on top of one another cafeteria style. Our Bill came to $82 dollars and I felt robbed when we left. I don't mind paying top dollar for a good meal but we would have been better to get a bite at a fast food place. Save you money and palate it's just aweful!!! 70 style diner quality food and service in an outdated decor. Robert Irvine would tear this place apart food and!"

  • "I had the Beef Tenderloin which was perfect. Salad was as I remember. The garlic toast could have been a bit warmer with a little more butter. The twice backed potato was not as expected. It was cold and tasted a bit day old."

  • "A fun spot, the service was slow the night we were there, but friendly. The food was okay, we would go back when feeling a night of something a little different and some comfort food."

  • "Great atmosphere for those that love the mid-century Tiki vibe. The steaks are actually pretty good and more reasonably priced than a fancy steakhouse. But who cares after a few Mai Tais in this tropical paradise."

  • "I love Damon's anytime of the day. Brunch is great..get a Mai Tai with your brunch, Yum. Lunch and Dinner are the best. The Dinner waitress' are gems...I just love this place. The Chi Chi's are to die for and the Mai Tai's...well they are simply the best. Their steaks are "melt in your mouth" awesome. I just love this place."

  • "The restaurant located near the famous Porto's Bakery. There's a parking lot right behind the restaurant which is pretty convenient, but you will have to pay for parking. If you have a reservation and arrive on time, you can get a seat right away. The servers look pretty busy but they are very attentive. The food was very delicious. Garlic bread is a must try."

  • "Live in San Diego, so haven’t been to Damon’s in a long time. Met up with my husband’s family for an early father’s day gathering. Perfect venue. Fun and relaxed atmosphere, great food, and great mai tais. I always love the salad that they make and my favorite dish is still delicious, brochette of shrimp with the twice baked potato. We even shared a mud pie, which I’ve never eaten before because I’m always so stuffed. It was a perfect place to eat before watching a show at the Glendale Centre Theatre. Can’t wait for my next visit!"

  • "How this place has managed to stay in business for 75+ years is, and will remain to be, one of the great mysteries of the world. Food was horrible. Starting with the "famous" garlic bread that tasted like re-heated wonder bread with margarine and garlic (and wasn't even sliced), through the fat and gristle laden prime rib, to the microwaved (frozen) and dried out "twice baked" potatoes, to the tasteless macaroni and cheese, to the absolutely horrible barbeque platter, where should I begin? And the service? In the immortal words of my New York relatives, "fugeddaboudit." My food came out noticeably wrong, and when I asked the server/food runner to bring the dish as I ordered, I was met with a blank stare (until I repeated it in Spanish)"

  • "First off I know Damons is a glendale landmark. But food is what should really matter. So my Bill was $165.00 tax and tip included. This was for 3 entrees, two appitizers, 3 mai tais. Way over priced for the quality. We ordered sirloin, new York steak, and bbq combo platter. Steak not cooked to order, bbq platter meat with a bottle of bbq sauce on top, literally. Service was good But price for quality of food not equal to decent steak houses. Honestly I prefer Black Angus over my last experience at Damons. Just trying to be honest with my opinión, if it offends any Damons regulars Im sorry. Just left restuarant trying to justify what I just paid for."
