Good Stuff at Hunter
My streak was very good but my au gratin potatoes were very disappointing. I was really looking forward to the au gratin potatoes because my sister had just eaten them last week and said they were good but to me they were marginal at best. My fiancés shrimp linguini was also very good with huge shrimp although the sauce was a little watery. Still very good though. The one thing I really like about Hunter is their table side salad bar. They bring the salad bar to your table and the waiter makes your salad for you right at your table. Good stuff.

probably because it was the day before mother's day they were extremely busy. We waited a very long time for our dinner. But the the food was still very good.

I have gone to the Hunter House/Hungry Hunter fir years in several locations over California. It started out as a good date place, the family and for several years business lunches. Food has always been good and the wait personnel friendly and helpful. Mother's Day was good food and our table was in a corner so my husband and I could enjoy the quiet. Could use some updating on the interior, but nice to be in a familar place.

Our go to place
I've been going to Hunter's for years. It's just one of those places that I'm comfortable going to. It's very chill and not pretentious at all. I always go downstairs and eat in the bar area. The table service salad is excellent and always fresh. They never disappoint with the steaks, always cooked the way I want it, and the side veggies are always al dente but hot. I can't stand boring mushy veggies. It's a pretty straight to the point old school joint. Simple good food.

We got two delicious steaks and a middle priced bottle of wine for just under $100.

Don't judge a book by its cover
While appearing old, rustic and run down. The food and service were both excellent. Great salad bar at your table and the prime Rib and filet were wonderful.

In desperate need of a makeover
The food is always pretty good here, a little pricey but you def get what you pay for with the portions they give you. Servers are great friendly & efficient. Hostesses barely greet you & are always lounging on the couches in the entry area, too busy chatting with each other. Just very unprofessional. The restaurant itself really needs a facelift! Tears in the booths, you can see the seam in the carpet go down the middle of the room. Paint on the walls needs touching up badly.

My wife an I were in the mood for prime rib and that means the Hunter, where we've never been let down. Excellent service is appreciated too.

Great "food" night" out. four of us in our party and each ordered something different. All was wonderful and service was great. Love the salad bar!!

This is one of two restaurants we go to annually on our trip to Carlsbad/Del Mar. Food is consistently good, as is the service. Great value for the money. The stuffed mushroom caps appetizer was absolutely outSTANDing!

Step back to the 70's
This place reminds me of the good old steakhouses of the 70's! We dined on a Tues. 6pm & the place filled up quickly. We both had the 4 course dinner special: a choice of appetizer, salad, entree & dessert. We both had the potato skins which were crispy just the way we like them. The tableside salad bar was fun & fresh. For our entree we had the prime rib, mine ordered rare & his medium rare & we could not get over the generous size of the cut! It was delicious & tender. I do like a little more seasoning on mine but my husband was quite pleased with his the way it was. The only thing we found lacking a good review was the dessert. The carrot cake was more like a spice cake & there was not enough cream cheese icing, esp. between the layers.

I live in Oklahoma and was in the Oceanside area. I met my mom and grandma their for dinner, which they live in the LA area. All three of us loved the food, service, prices, and the whole experience. If I make it down that way again, I will for sure will be a repeat customer.

It took a lot to please my 83 year old mom here. Hunters hit on presentation, value and service. My mom said she will be happy to return and sample their regular menu after restaurant week This place is an Oceanside gem.

Good Food at a Local Place
As it says on the sign, Hunters has been around a while. The interior shows that but the food is good and the staff is very nice. The prices were reasonable and the portions were a good size. I would recommend Hunters for a nice date night to a family night out.

We hadn't been to Hunter's Steakhouse in close to 20 years. It was nostalgic to once again enjoy the tableside salad bar! We upgraded the Restaurant Week offering to the filet…it was prepared perfectly! Very tender and flavorful. Our server, Dena, let us enjoy the evening at our pace…yet making sure that we were cared for. Thank you Restaurant Week and Hunter’s…we will once again become a regular!

The food was very good, our waitress Deena was outstanding, but the ambience can use a little updating. The look is rustic but can use a little updating.

I had my 56th birthday celebration here with my family. It was a nice quiet meal and the wait staff was very friendly. They explained the menu very well and they checked on us multiple times to see how we were (or to check on the room?). But, they didn't pay too close attention to our needs as, they never refilled our drinks. My only complaint is that my daughter brought in a pie to be served and, they forgot.

We celebrated our anniversary recently and they accommodated us very well. We loved the service and the food, the drinks were amazing. we loved this place, it is affordable and definitely worth returning to.

A Great Steakhouse and More
You can count on an excellent meal at Hunter Steakhouse. Everyone else loved the salad bar brought to the table, but I still enjoyed my Caesar salad. So far, every entree we have tried here has been excellent. It is a great place for prime rib, but you might also enjoy some salmon or lamb chops. I have had no problem getting really rare meat here while my husband gets his well done.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was excellent. We really enjoyed everything about Hunter Steakhouse. The steak was perfect as well as the prime rib.
The service was superb and we will visit your restaurant again. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

Dinner at Hunters
My husband and I come here regularly. There food is delicious and their table side salad is the best. Nothing special but we just love it. We do wish they served different bread. The bread they serve becomes hard/stale awfully fast. Never-the-less we will be back.

Notable night out
We went strictly off reviews when choosing this restaurant to take my mother and grandmother to and we weren't disappointed. With our reservation, we were seated immediately and were thrilled with the menu selection, the service, the wine list, and the food itself. We would go here again for a date night or to take guests for a dinner that isn't just a regular dinner out.

Food was great, the salad bar at your table is always fun. Great steaks!

We headed here for Thanksgiving. They had a limited menu but that's to be expected. Hubby & I had the filet mignon & prime rib. Both were cooked to perfection & everything was delicious! Hunter does this consistently. Why we visit when we crave steak!

Turkey Day Saviour
I had planned to cook and serve our Thanksgiving Dinner this year but a disaster struck my kitchen the night before and we had to scramble to make other plans. I was able to make reservations for 5 at the Hunter online. They offered a special Thanksgiving Day dinner, so everyone who wanted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and salad got to have it. One person chose prime rib and that was all good, too. The meal came with pumpkin pie that had a good flavor (although the crust was a bit tough).
I often go to the Hunter for prime rib dinner or Sunday champagne brunch. I knew they would come through for me and they did not let me down. The waitresses are always good and Jamie upheld that tradition.

From Sandra who worked with me to get a table by the fireside, to John the Manager who got the roses on the table and adjusted the reservation time, to etc. etc. etc. EVERYONE contributed to a fantastic wedding anniversary for just me and my wife. She was blown away as we walked up the stairs to the dining room and turned the corner seeing our table. And the Christmas decorations throughout the restuarant were very "Martha Stewart" (just perfect). They just need to put up the white minilights on the tree trunks out in the parking lot. I'm sure that's next on their agenda as they've done it in the past and it is still only the 6th. So there's still time!

An old reliable
We had a great and moderately priced steak meal at Hunters Steakhouse last Saturday. They seem to run in a "professional" manner as the food that they present is of both high quality along with a high level of consistency. We both had the small size filet mignon steak, it was perfectly seasoned, served to the requested degree of cooking and was of extremely high quality. Very tender and tasty, very much resembling another favorite steakhouse of a markedly higher price point. Due to these consistently positive experiences, we find ourselves going to this restaurant with increasingly frequency.
