    We enjoyed our meal once again. A couple of small things could have made it better. Apparently they no longer have the Kansas City Strip and the bread pudding was not as good as it has been - maybe it needed to be warmed. Our server was great - as usual. I did find that although I booked it as a 1,000 points table, we only received 100 points. I am investigating....

    McKendrick's Steakhouse is thw scene for those who are at least 50 years old. The food is much too overpriced for the portion they serve and the chef likes to keep all the meat as uncooked as possible. (A well done steak will still have a pink center) The food was pretty good though although not really worth it. The booth was very loud, so was the overall restaurant. Who knew elderly people could make so much noise. However, the service was great. Mark "Dods" was very helpful and made the dining experience much more enjoyable than it would've been. I would probably not go for a second time but I highly recommend it to very wealth senior citizens!

    We generally choose McKendricks for special celebrations. With all the well rated steak places in town, we still find them to be the best. Steaks are always perfect. And that lobster mac'n cheese is so delicious! We brought our own special bottle of wine, and the waiter did not charge us a corkage fee. (Maybe because it was hubby's birthday?). Either way we were pleased with that. We enjoy very nice wine and have plenty of our own so we would rather bring ours. We don't mind a corkage fee but it's always nice if they don't have one, or if it's not ridiculous. The only thing I would say is that our waiter was very stoic. Maybe just his personality. He never smiled once. But he did provide good service so I guess that's what matters.

    This is a basically a good, competent restaurant, but our most recent experience was hit and miss. Salads were great, but my wife had the Fried South African Lobster tails for $16.95 each and they was maybe 2 oz. of meat on each one. They looked ridiculously small. Unfortunately they were also very dry/overcooked. Wine by the glass pours were uneven. One was a full 6 oz. pour, the other was maybe 4 oz., but they filled up the smaller one when I showed them the difference. My salmon was delicious. Salted Carmel Gelato with Bacon sounded great, but we had to send it back. It was cloyingly sweet, too salty and didn't seem fresh. Just too many missteps for super premium prices being charged. Service was okay, but not warm & fuzzy.

    Have visited a number of steak houses in the last 6 months..the filet I had here was the best. Cooked just right, with an incredible flavor. All the sides were fresh and tasty. The 4 cheese mac-and-cheese..WOW! Service impeccable. Pricey, but the overall value was there.

    The hubbie wanted to go here for dinner. Wait staff was wonderful, attentive enough without being distracting. Salmon was perfect, some of the freshest fish I have eaten in quite some time. Hubbies said his steak was perfect. Lobster mac to die for. Birthday dessert was heavenly, oreo crust two flavors gelato with snicker topping - yum! Only downside was this restaurant is on the loud side not really a place for romantic dinner could tell Monday night was the business man special!

    I have never had a bad meal or experience here. There side dishes are as mouth-watering as their steaks. And the steaks are the best in the city. Many times you wonder if you getting what you pay for. I would have to say "Yes". Special occasions or just treat some you care about. For a 5 star experience McKendrick's every time.

    We haven't been to McKendrick's for years, no particular reason just moved on. Not sure why but thought about it for my husband's birthday and boy are we glad we did!! Great food, great waiter, great place all around just great. I had the Mero Sea Bass, melted in my mouth and my husband had the traditional steak, it was cooked perfectly. Then they brought out this great Birthday surprise cake for him that was to die for. This place is a must!!

Hats off to the bartender as well, my wife said the pomegranate Martini was the best she has had to date. As always, but it cant be left unsaid the steaks are the best in town, perfectly done!

    There are very few occasions that truly qualify for the Perfect Award but our experience the evening of September 13th was certainly one that did. From the welcome, to the service, to the food, to the special desert, all was beyond approach. In addition, our server deserves recognition for his exceptional attention and service. Jeff engaged us in pleasant conversation and even asked if we were celebrating a special event, which we were. All things considered, McKendrick's Steakhouse provided us with an unforgettable experience. Thank You.

    First time at mckendricks food was awesome and waiter was friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was lively slot bough I'm a fan of a booth vs open table so s little ackward for me. Dress for the occasion as most are. Bar and drinks were a little scarce unless you line wine. I asked for a drink menu but besides wine they didn't have one and the waiter didn't let me know what they had so water it was. Overall great service and great food besides the drinks.
