    Went there for my 50th birthday. My steak would have been free, but I upgraded to the Filet Mignon and it was worth the price difference. Our server, Wendy, made the experience worth every penny. This was our first time there and we will go back again. Brought home a cheeseburger for my son and he told us that it was delicious. I've already recommended the Okeechobee Steakhouse to my co-worker for her son's graduation dinner.

    First time, very disappointing. We got lost and when we showed up a few minutes late they gave away our reservation. When we did get a table our water was neither poured nor offered. When the bread was placed on the table, no bread plates were present and we had to request some. This concept of the "Meat presentation" is inconceivable to me. Why would I want my meat to be taken from a fridge, brought out in front of people spreading Lord's know what germs? When the meat did come, my Prime Rib was over peppered and my Mother's New York Strip was grey in color. Even the desert was poor. We ordered the Key Lime pie and it was surly NOT memorable. Needless to say…….no we shall not return.

    For many good reasons we keep returning to the Okeechobee Steak House for lunch. The lunch menu is simple and we've NEVER had a bad lunch experience. The hamburgers are superb as are the salads and the BLT with avacado. Service is pleasant and prompt which makes this a great place for business lunches. Wish we could say we have the same experience when we've been there for dinner.

    hundreds of times and was always very pleased. This was my 60th birthday so kind of a special occasion and while the food was good the waiter was not friendly. I know they pride themselves on service and I always had great service so it was disappointing. My quests were also disappointed.

    We went to the restaurant because of its reputation and a free birthday steak. The NY Strip (free) was overdone. My wife's Prime Rib was huge and so I was able to fill up on her leftovers. The appetizer was stuffed shrimp, that was fantastic. Worth a second try.

    1st you think, a dive in a strip mall? The once you walk in the door the welcome, the service and the food rule! Honestly, after searching for a NY style steak for 2 years, my wishes were fulfilled! Crispy char outside and perfectly done inside...all served with friendly efficiency along with a salad and potato...PERFECTION!

    Went to Okeechobee SH for a special occasion, although admittedly on an odd night (a Monday!). So it was quiet in the restaurant and that may have contributed to the outstanding service. But honestly, I think our waiter would have been outstanding even on a busy night. Extremely professional, enthusiastic about the offering and very competent - as good as any waiter in a 5-star restaurant, but in a more laid-back atmosphere. As for the food, I had a filet that was simply divine! I think it actually outdoes Ruths Chris...sheer perfection. My guest said his NY strip was not as good as my filet (I think the cut is just not as tender), but still very enjoyable. If he had loved his as much as I loved mine, it would be a 5 star review.

    Okeechobee Steakhouse never fails to be anything but excellent. Food, service and ambiance are perfect for special occasions. We always request our favorite server, Wesley, whose gentle demeanor and sense of humor, add to the total experience. When I think of OSH being around as long as I've been around, I know exactly why that is. .... It is a restaurant that is consistently at the top of it's game. Looking forward to our next special occasion.

    It has to be the Best Steaks in Palm Beach County, if not the State/Country. Much better than Morton's or Ruth Chris and it is family owned and operated. Just a really nice place to go. I have never been able to find anything even remotely wrong with the service or food. Chef Jeff is the Best

    I've been wanting to try OSH out for a while and what better occasion than our 35th Wedding Anniversary. Made our reservation using OpenTable and had no problems with it. Was greeted warmly and escorts to a lovely table. Our server was FANTASTIC!!! She made some great recommendations since we'd never been there before. Showed us all the steaks they serve. She was always engaging us and we even had her laughing at some of my comments. Overall it was a wonderful experience. Oh, the food was great!!!! Could not have been served a better meal. We will be coming back and we will bring friends the next time.

    Very fine meal here for 4. They feature interesting or hard-to-find cuts: Porterhouse, Delmonico, "Kansas City" as well as tips, filet mignon, and strips. Also featured the night we were there was fresh fish. Sides include two kinds of spinach, baked or fried potatoes, and a nice loaf of yeast bread. Desserts are appropriately sinful. None of this will help you hang on to what's in your wallet, but at least you'll leave plump and happy. We dined like kings. Best of all, the restaurant is spotless and there's no musty smell after decade after decade of historic service. This is a hands-on operation; the staff move like gazelles. Wine list is serviceable but missing are a few French finds (hint: a Bordeaux or Cotes du Rhone).

    The main point of this review is aimed at the OpenTable reservation service, though I would rather call it a "Disservice"! Was advised on the OpenTable website there were no openings at this restaurant for the evening we wished to attend (birthday celebration) so we decided to settle for an opening on the evening prior to our initial choice (Thursday evening instead of Friday). Much to our surprise we were adivsed by our waiter during our Thursday evening meal that there were ample openings for that following evening (Friday) and there was no reason we should have missed the Birthday Special offered by this restaurant. I believe OpenTable is a misguided racket! I'll be calling the restaurant directly for reservations from here on in.

    They have a wonderful early dinner deal. We had prime rib. The meat was cooked exactly as ordered and was delicious. Choice of salad and potato were included. Service was prompt and attentive. We arrived close to the end of the early dining period as did others, yet the service was still excellent. The deal is late enough that people can come from work. Would not hesitate to go back again for either the regular meal or early dining depending on the occasion. Had not been here in many years and there have been changes but the food and service has retained its quality.

    Consistently good drink, food and great service are what continue to bring my wife and I back to Okeechobee Steakhouse. The bone-in ribeye steak should be on everyone's list of an outstanding steak in addition to the prime rib. Additionally, try a Grey Goose Martini Up with stuffed olives.

    Okeechobee Steak House has been in business for almost 70 years. Their longevity is due to outstanding food that is reasonably priced. They also have well trained servers who enhance the dining experience. Their chopped steak is the best I've ever found and their prime rib is similarly 1st rate. Their steaks are also worth the cholesterol risk. It's a great place that ALWAYS cooks their meat perfectly to order.
