Great food and a fun way toGreat food and a fun way to spend the evening with my 97 year old aunt who was born and raised in Glendale!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you like casual diningI read the reviews and I decided to go with my friends for a steak. I loved the feel of the restaurant. The food was great , service good.
If you want a casual dinner with friends this is a good place to go, they have a good selection for foodies. The steak was good and made to order, we loved the twice baked potatoes, the spinach was a little oily but all in all it was very good food. Also the garlic bread...we loved it. They have a good selection of wines too, I will totally go again.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatWe went with a group for a birthday party, Service was great as always. Everybody loved the food. Filet is the best I've ever had, cooked perfect. You could cut it with a fork. Great prices and Mai Tai's.
It's tough to beat this place.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMsecret shopperLove it at DAMON's, will tell my friends.
Drinks were great, and no rush to order main course...6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly, fun and good foodNot fancy, and not meant to be, but very good food. Limited menu for entrees, choice of salad dressings, and odd selection of side dishes (no baked potato available at a steakhouse?). Very limited wine selection, but enough for a casual, friendly neighborhood place.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDamons is always fun but veryDamons is always fun but very noisy. The service was good as well as the food and drinks. Over all the eating experience was very positive as usual. Been a customer since 1957.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSooo glad we made reservations!!Sooo glad we made reservations!! That's a new bonus that I really like. We showed up for our 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately even though there was a wait! That was great. I usually have the basic top sirloin dinner there and this time I opted for one of the steak specials. It was really good. It had a wine sauce with carmalized onions really good! The rest of the gang had the main menu and everyone was happy. Especially those who had a couple of chi-chi's ;) We will definitely be back!!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable South Pacific themeticEnjoyable South Pacific themetic atmosphere. Enjoyed the menu choices. Look for discount coupons in local advertizing as well as come in early and get discount early bird drinks from the bar. Guitarist is excellent and adds to the atmosphere. Friendly service. Would readily return. Walking distance fromm Glendale Centre Theater.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWorking Man’s steak houseThis is a place that makes you feel at home you can dressed as you are no fuss. Anyone can bring the family and a good meal.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ordered the New York steak,We ordered the New York steak, and the Mahi Mahi and both were great! Good service too.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHistoric Restaurant To TryVery good steaks and sides in a tiki atmosphere in a fun place; my filet mignon was very tasty and the twice baked potato very good. Recommend Damon's for a casual dinner when you want a steak and don't want to break the bank.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGlendale StapleI have been going her for years and they never dissapoint. Evidently Monday's are $4.00 Mai Tai. Good to know. Salad made at the table was great. Steak was prepared as requested.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDamon's is consistently aDamon's is consistently a good choice for a Mai Tai fix! I like to change it up & have vodka instead of rum, though! Their house salad is the same delicious salad it has been since as long as I can remember. It's comforting how some things don't change. We tried their BBQ items, the ribs were really good, the beef brisket quite fatty. Weird, right?!? I don't think I will order that again. The garlic bread is all sorts of diabolically buttery goodness. That & some Mai Tai's could be dinner haha Our server was Val, she was friendly & efficient & took good care of us. All in all, a good night!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a good meal at a goodHad a good meal at a good price nothing fancy. Enjoyed the Tiki theme not very many Tiki themed restaurants left in LA. Mi Tia's were very good not too sweet.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAn old favoriteMy wife has been going here since she was a little girl. I was introduced to Damon's about 10 years ago and can't wait to go back! The ribeye steak with onions and blue cheese is incredible. The petite filet is a must -have as well. Always a wonderful experience. Don't forget a Mai-tai or two.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNight Out With FriendsThe steaks and prime rib were great. I always enjoy their house salad. Was disappointed with the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer, $14 for two scallops was a bit much. Other than that, a great night out!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit of PolynesiaSouth Seas decor. Relaxed, casual atmosphere with great drinks. A nice local place to get a good steak. Attentive service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is not a high-end restaurantI have been to Damon's many times in the past and I know what to expect. Yelp says there are new managers and have worked on the menu... I did notice the prices have gone up from before but they are still not overpriced. I would say Damon's is a good place to go for any reason but don't expect the High-End experience. The food was very good! I had a Ribeye steak and it was tender and cooked as requested. Others had the Cheeseburger and said it was amazing... and the third dinner was the Coconut Shrimp which was equally as good, Servings were well portioned. The decor is themed Polynesian with a large fish filled aquarium and canoes hanging overhead. So with that description you understand the "not a high-end restaurant" title. Enjoy!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood guy FAVTook my girl for dinner on 4/31/13 and we had a remarkable time. FOod was very good, service was GREAT.... nothing else to say....4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI hadn't been to Damon's inI hadn't been to Damon's in over 25 years, so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised that it was even better this time. The steaks we had, especially the filet, were great. Service was friendly and attentive. There's a homey atmosphere in Damon's. I highly recommend it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findMade online reservation. Table was ready when we arrived. Took 30 min for a waiter to make contact with us because we were placed "in between their areas." Once that was worked out the service and food were excellent. They comp'd the appetizers since we waited so long. Now that's how you take care of customers!!! Probably the best pork chop I've ever had. Great place, noisy if your looking for romance. Great Mai tai's...their signature drink.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only somewhat negativeThe only somewhat negative comment for me - I would have preferred the salad dressing on the side. Otherwise the food, service and ambiance were great.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIsland motif felt like weIsland motif felt like we were entering the Tiki Hut at Disneyland and we were tempted to leave. I'm glad we stayed. The food (filet medallions cooked just the way we ordered) and service were excellent. We were stuffed after eating all our dinner but decided on dessert (anniversary celebration after all). The place was packed on this Saturday night but we asked our waiter if he would mind giving us about 15 minutes before bringing our choice of wontons filled with peanut butter, bananas & chocolate, with a side of vanilla ice cream. He obliged without hesitation. The staff was more concerned with our dining experience than turning a table. Unusual in this day & age. Looking forward to our next visit!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM"I don't often eat steak my"I don't often eat steak my friends, but when I do, I prefer Damon's."4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks!Wow! The Filet Mignon was perfect.In fact,my husband thought it was one of the best steaks he had ever eaten. Everything else,potatoes, creamed corn,etc, was wonderful. The only problem was the extremely loud noise level, which some people might find just right. Once we adjusted to it, it was okay. The old-fashioned Tiki Bar atmosphere was fun, and I could certainly see it as a great place to take friends,enjoy the drinks, relax, eat, and people watch.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA GOOD RELIABLE MEAL EVERY TIMEDamon's has been one of my favorite restaurants in the Los Angeles Metro area for years. The decor is like the Tiki Room at Disneyland and the food is always very good. The cocktails are good, but can be pricey. I always go to the bar area during happy hour and order a drink just before being seated for dinner as the happy hour discounts only apply to the bar. I highly recommend Damon's for good quality steak anytime you want a good meal.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been coming here forHave been coming here for years. Steaks were just plain good and good plain, now they are covered in butter or sauce. I can't be sure but it seems that the meats have changed, used to be tasty by themselves, now they need help. Salad is great, Mai-Tais are good and the ladies that serve know their business.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLove that Damon's has reservations!Love that Damon's has reservations!!! Even though it was really crowded, we got seated right away. Food was excellent. My son tried their one of their new appetitizers chili-fries and was very pleased. Another plus for me is the children's menu now has pasta. So everyone was happy. Steak was great as usual. Just a great night out. Will definitely be going back soon.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed getting together withEnjoyed getting together with family, use to come here for special occasions when we first started dating in the 90's. Steaks are still great, salad is as we remember, love the garlic bread.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place is a little funkyThe place is a little funky with the tropical decor, but it adds quirky charm to it and they have great food. The times I have eaten here the food has always been fresh and hot. They used to have a small menu, but they have since added new items. The steaks are delicious and juicy. The mussels are cooked perfectly and not dry or chewy. The side of creamed corn is fresh and creamy, not overly sweet. The drinks are good and fairly priced. I usually come here with a large group and when everyone gets their food, everyone is happy with the quality and temperature of the food.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOld Timer Is Still StrongVery good food in a Tiki Room atmosphere. I like their coconut shrimp, and my wife liked her steak. Excellent drinks from the bar. The house salad is very good, as well as the garlic toast. Large portions and very good efficient service make it a good choice for a casual dinner.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDamon's is an LA Icon . .Damon's is an LA Icon . . . a Polynesian themed restaurant since the early 1930's. It is and has remained a popular spot for 80 years. I have eaten there since the 50's as a child, when the walls were adorned with oil paintings of beautiful bare-chested polynesian women . . .ahhh . . always a treat. The paintings are gone but much has remained the same over the years. Signature rum drinks and a very busy bar to boot.
I cannot remember ever having a disappointing meal . . .friendly courteous staff, consistently well prepared dishes, and that wonderful kitschy tropical decor.
It's nice to see a place like this still in business and flourishing after 80 years3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMai Tais, Chi-Chi's and good meat!. Went there with a group to celebrate a friends birthday and had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful to our larger group. I had the guinness short ribs which, was AWESOME. Damon's is an experience that everyone should try at least once - although, I know I'll be back.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMServe staff needs to be aServe staff needs to be a little more knowledgeable about cuts of meat on the menu.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMItsy bisty Spider mealI haven't been here for years but I never forget the great corkiness of this Glendale gem. Only one complaint to be made. As soon as we were seated a daddy long legs greeted us by landing on our table. When the waiter saw us freaking out and me stomping on something he came over to ask what had happened. I explained and as if it was normal the waiter just brushed it off and did nothing about it. I was kind of annoyed but didn't blow up since it was date night. The Mai tai's needed some work but the food was right on the money. Great steak, salad, coconut shrimp, baked potato and the gaaaaarlic bread. My mouth left Damon's a very happy mouth. Thanks Damon's !3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time to this long estabishedFirst time to this long estabished restaurant, and it was a very good dinner. I liked their salad, the ground steak, the twice baked potato, and the orange cream cake for dessert. Large portions, so we took some home. Tiki room decor and good service completed the nice experience.1/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDamon's doesn't disappoint!The best thing about Damon's is that it never changes. The decor, the signature salad, fish tanks....it's just like when I was a kid and is perfect! We were clever enough to be there on Mai Tai Monday for the $4 special! I had the NY steak which was pretty darn good! The others in our group had lobster ravioli and both enjoyed it. Of course we had the delicious garlic bread, a must have! Other than the weird guy seated near us who kept trying to talk to us and handing us things from his table it was a great evening.1/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
