Love it every time we go!
We first went to Admiral Steakhouse shortly after they opened their doors and were loved it! We've eaten there around twenty times since and each time, the food is cooked perfectly, the staff is super friendly and everyone pays attention to detail.
The onion soup, shrimp cocktail and oysters Rockefeller are great starters. Mind you, the complimentary asiago bread and butter is a great start all on its own! For entrees, Mike tends to get prime rib and I usually go to the beef tenderloin or the chopped salad with beef tips. Delicious!!!
There are several "specialty drinks" on the menu too. I always go with the Casco Bay Breeze. The only problem is that I can't stop at one!!

Worth seeking out
Their filet mignon was the tenderest we've ever had. We ordered it medium-rare and medium-rare it was. Perfect! We were there on a Monday night during the winter, so understandably the place was almost (not quite) empty. The ambience is elegant, the food perfect, and the service professional.

I believe this was our 4th
I believe this was our 4th visit to Admiral Steakhouse. They have a great deal - two 3-course dinners and a bottle of wine for $49. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anyone to be the second person with me! My dining companion wanted a steak, so he ordered from the regular menu. I ordered a burger which tasted fantastic. I've had a positive dining experience every time we have eaten there, but wish they would expand their regular menu a bit.

Wanted to like it more than I did
After hearing rave reviews of Admireal Steakhouse from others, we decided to try it for Easter dinner. Upon arrival, we were seated promptly and given menus. The waitress was somewhat slow in taking our orders, but the restaurant was busy when we arrived. I really only noticed two waitresses working the entire dining room. I ordered the leg of lamb from the Easter menu. The portions were generous and the lamb had a good enough flavor, but it was bland, over cooked, and dry. I had heard great reviews of their rack of lamb, so had hoped for a great deal better in their roast leg. The bread, smashed potatoes, and creme brulee were very good.

The Admiral is where you want to go if you are craving a good steak. Classic steakhouse ambience. Cold martinis, crisp salads, hearty sides and mouthwatering cuts of beef!! We will be back.

Hospitality was an "A"
Erin our server was so friendly, helpful, and courteous. We wanted to bring her back to NYC with us so she could train the waitstaff at most of the pretentious five star restaurants. We will definitely be back!

What were we waiting for?
Of our party of six, three had beef and three had seafood, and all were very pleased. We had not tried Admiral -- the idea of a steakhouse in Maine (with the abundance of wonderful fish and seafood) seemed a little strange to us, but we were entertaining guests and decided to present the meat-eaters with more options than most restaurants here offer. We're so glad that we did, and in fact, have made a reservation for next weekend at Admiral. To me, that would be a good recommendation! Service was friendly, polite, and accurate. My husband and I had the Lazy Lobster, bathed in an excellent sherry-cream sauce; the tuna steak was done to a T; and the meat-eaters (12 oz. filet and two prime-ribs) were smiling widely at the close of the meal.

2nd time's a charm
We dined on Father's Day at Admiral Steakhouse, following the previous weekend's visit with guests. Many times a return visit to restaurants are not quite like the first, but Admiral did not fall into that category. We enjoyed our leisurely dinner for two--one lazy lobster and one prime rib. The prime rib was the 12 oz (smaller) version and was a very generous 12 oz, it appeared. The "real" (not microwaved or steamed) baked potato had delicious kosher-salted skin. The smaller versions of the Caesar and chopped mixed salads were more than adequate in size; the latter was outstanding. Have not yet left room for that monumental carrot cake we have heard so much about. Next time! And we mustn't fail to mention the excellent service.

Not just for steaks....
Although we fully intended to be having steaks of some kind we could not resist the special of "lazy lobster with sherry cream sauce". It was a very delicious meal, good service, and subdued decor despite being on a street corner in town. We will definitely return...and try the steaks!

Once again an exceptional evening at the Admiral Steakhouse, welcoming environment, outstanding service, and top of the line food properly and skillfully prepared. An evening well spent and greatly enjoyed by us both we look forward to our return.

Third time, and service and food is consistently very good. Lobster Bisque and Prime Rib, YUM! I would recommend making a reservation. Great for special occasions, or a romantic dinner with your significant other. Will definately be returning.

Stopped on a Tuesday night on our way to Maine and could not have been happier with our choice! The restaurant was very accommodating to our large party of nine including a very rambunctious 18 month old. The food, from the delicious wedge salad to the perfectly prepared steaks and delightful desserts was great. As a bonus, the wait staff was attentive and friendly. We will be sure to stop here on our annual trip to Maine next year.

Just one flaw
We had excellent appetizers, salads, and entrees - the duck was tender and perfectly cooked. The only problem was with the two starch side dishes. The smashed potatoes were tasty but only lute warm, but the cheesy grits were an un-eatable, cold hard ball. One got the impression they had been sitting around for awhile. Our server was quick to see the problem and brought a prompt substitution. This was the only thing that kept the food from being 5 star. We will certainly return again, and maybe try the cheesy grits again hoping the problem was a one-off late at night. The entire staff also is quite hospitable and service oriented.

Dinner with the priests
Every once in a while we get a special urge to treat special people to a dinner. This is the ideal place to do it.

Two thumbs up!
We rarely go out for beef, but we had a Restaurants.com certificate we wanted to use. Admiral Steakhouse was near us, so my husband and I had a free evening, and made it a date night. It was just perfect. It was pricey but the quality of the food and service made it well worth it. The steak was melt in your mouth delicious! Garlic smashed potatoes were perfect as was the chopped salad, appetizer Portobello Rockefeller, and Pumpkin Creme Brulee! We left with very happy bellies!

Excellent food and perfect timing
We were going to show after dining, & all parties knew our limitations and made a wonderful effort for us.

This was my first experience at this restaurant. It was absolutely fabulous. There were four of us and we all agreed we would return. The food was delicious and very well presented. The service was exquisite and we loved our waitress. She was very attentive and quick but not interruptive. It was a joyous time for us all.

My wife and I have eaten here a few times, usually for a special occasion. It is a step above most other local restaurants.
