Good for special occasion dining
The filet mignon on the bone was heavenly delicious! It was something new for me to eat it with bone. The price was above average and glad that I felt the price was well-worth to spend.

New Jersey's best steakhouse!!!
Fun, family style steakhouse.
What it is lacking in ambience, it makes up for in the quality of the food and steaks!

Three of us celebrated my
Three of us celebrated my wife's Birthday on a Saturday evening and were not disappointed. The food was top-notch, and nothing was overcooked and the service was excellent. They were very attentive but not intrusive. Everything went well and we had a great time. This was our fourth experience with the Wayne Steak House and I can guarantee there will be many, many more.

Great night out.
I went to Wayne Steak House to celebrate my daughters wedding anniversary, this was my first time. The food was excellent, the steaks were cooked to perfection. We had the a couple of appetizers that were great. We had the bacon and onions and tomatoes, also had oysters that were a special that night. The serve a house salad for the table and offer onion rings with dinner which is a nice touch. The service was great and we had an excellent time. I have been to Luger in Brooklyn a number of times and the food is comparable.

Wayne steak house
It was our first time that
We tried this place. Well we were so pleasantly surprised here, the steaks were fabulous & unlike other steakhouses the portions were plentiful. We want quality & taste & we got it all. The steak for 2 was big enough for 3! The sizzling steaks were meaty & delicious. The jumbo shrimp cocktails were outstanding! The tomato & onions also excellent & so were our side dishes. The service was attentive & unobtrusive. We were treated very well. The chief Tony came to our table to ask how
was everything he was very nice . We will definitely return. What a find!
***And don't forget it's BYOB*** !!!

You can never go wrong at
You can never go wrong at the Wayne steakhouse! Peter Luger's taste without Peter Luger's price! It makes sense, seeing they hail from Lugers. You gotta get the bacon to start. If you don't, you're a fool! Steak for 1, 2, or 3.. Doesn't matter, always spot on! We go at least once a month. Unlike the swanky NYC steakhouses, it's a BYOB! which saves you BIG TIME!! Great service always. We love the Wayne Steakhouse!!

Better than Peter Lugers
We were pleasantly surprised to find the steak better than Peter Luger's. The BYOB also makes it cheaper. Reservations are needed.
4/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing steak. Great for anyone who does not want to drive to Manhattan or Brooklyn for an amazing aged steak. Delicious. My son's 13th birthday request to go here. He was in heaven with his steak and bacon appetizer. The wait staff sang a wonderful rendition of Happy Birthday and he was pleasantly embarrassed. Thank you.

From the outside you would never guess what you are about to experience on the inside. Aestetically could use some exterior work, but beautiful inside. Best filet I've ever had. Service was great and the BYO offsets the steep entree prices. But 100% worth every penny. We will definitely be back.

What a fantastic night!
Where the decor isn't the fanciest in the world, if that helps make the food taste like it did, I'M FINE WITH IT! We were able to modify our reservation easily from 4 to 8. All I can say about the steak is...WOW! Fantastic meal and sides. The owner even came to our table and asked about the meal and what they could do to make it better. Tables were a bit close together, but after a few minutes, honestly, we didn't even notice anymore. Can't wait to go back again!

A real Steakhouse in Wayne!
My wife and I were extremely impressed with the quality of the dinner. Mussels and White sauce (appetizer)was great, extremely fresh, perhaps the best mussels we have ever had. Porterhouse Steak for two done medium rare - quality, tenderness and amount exceeded our expectations. The steak came out sizziling hot and the server had it carved perfectly and served it to each of us with just the right amount of seasoning. Sides of asparagus and mushrooms and complimentary lightly batterred onion rings were great. Finally we were given a complementary berrys and cream dish to finish it off. Highly reccomend the Wayne Steakhouse finally BYOB is a huge plus as well. The service was top notch with several waiters attending to us. Great experience!!

Good Steaks and BYOB
This place is pretty striaght to the point. It's not cheap, but the steaks are worth it and considering its bring your own bottle, its great to cozy up to a warm filet with your favorite vino.
5/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good steaks, complimentary
Good steaks, complimentary salad and onion rings nice touch for steak house. Byb brings down cost. Table too small and steaks came out way too soon after apps are only complaints. Would return

This is a Steakhouse
Forget the twenty page menu with fifteen pasta, a dozen seafood and ten chicken dishes...this is a steakhouse. Filet Mignon was our choice for both of us and we got all sixteen ounces that we ordered and they were done perfectly. The meal came with a bread basket, French fried onion rings, and a garden salad. We added sautéed spinach and whole button mushrooms. We ate half of what was served and brought the rest home. We skipped what appeared to be an adequate selection of deserts, but a plate of Schlage with blackberries and strawberries was served complimentarily. It was delectable. Priced what you would expect for prime aged beef entrees, sides were ten dollars. The restaurant is BYOB. Service was prompt without being overbearing.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We are never disappointed
We are never disappointed here at the Wayne Steak House. The food is top quality and always cooked to perfection. Service continues to be prompt and courteous with everyone pitching in at times to make things go smoother. I have been here six or seven times and I don't think I have ever been able to finish my plate. That makes for an outstanding dinner the following evening where we get to finish our wine as well. I will be back may times for an experience that is always unforgettable.

Best Steakhouse in the area
Where else can you find a NY style steak house that is BYOB. It suffered a little for service, but I didn't rate them too low as it was Father's Day and they were very crowded.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Steak / Slow Service
The food is always great, the service just seems slow. Even when ordering cold seafood platters, it was 45 minutes from order to table.

Father's Day Dinner
My wife, son, his fiance' and I enjoyed a fabulous meal this past Sunday, Father's Day. From the start there are always a host of people taking good care of you and providing you with whatever you need. The food is brought out promptly by several members of the Wait Staff, so that it is hot, and everything arrives at the same time. Everyone was served quickly and we had plenty of time to enjoy our feast. Of course the food was prepared so well that everyone in our party remarked: "That is the best steak I have ever had!" And that is the truth. We invariably have leftovers which I am happy to say are as good as they were the night before. Thanks for making our Father's Day so special.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great filet mignon, cooked to perfection! Great onion rings w/o all the excessive breading. Excellent steak fries & sauteed broccoli...family style encourages sharing.

Great Food But Expensive
Went with my family to celebrate our birthdays! The lobster and steaks were unbeleivable but it was VERY expensive!
Would only go back for a special occasion! Very attentive but busy service.

Enjoyed a porterhouse for two with a friend and enjoyed it. Meat was reminiscent of Peter Luger's. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again.
8/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
2nd time here and was just as good as the 1st time. They have a great selection of steaks and they're cooked just right. Sides could be a little bigger, but still are tasty. Considering that it's a BYOB, this is a great option if you want to keep your bill down a little. Will definitely be coming back.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a steakhouse is meant to be!
I've dined in a few good steakhouses. This was the best steak I've ever had, both the meat itself and the preparation. We had the porterhouse for 2. We took about 1 third home with us. Don't miss the canadian bacon appetizer. We ordered and shared just one slice. The flavor was awesome, and it was not filling due to the small portion that we ordered....it was the right way to go.
Another good thing is that it is a byo. A brought a $40 bottle of wine, which is more than i spend in a store, but usually the low end in a restaurant.
The place was crowded and boisterous...as can be expected. The servers were efficient and knowlegeable, but not patronizing.
Amina(sp?) and her brother were great.
Highly recommended for the food!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've lived in Wayne for many years now and didn't know this place existed. What a great find! A bit on the expensive side ($91 for "Steak for Two") but the it was very good...tender and tasty! Plenty to bring home for left-overs. Service was friendly and attentive. Place was a bit noisy but a great experience overall. I'd recommend it!

Peter Luerger's West
We went on our anniversary, very please with the meal. Very similar meal to Peter Leuger's, even down to the Schlage.. But upsides are no tolls and bridges for us in NJ. Not an every day place to go eat, as other reviewers indicated about the $, however if going for a special occassion, I thought is was appropriate.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love steak and am a big fan of Peter Lugar's. That's my favorite steak house but the one in Brooklyn not Long Island. I saw reviews of people complaining of the service. I had no such problem. Went on a Wednesday night and a month later on a Saturday night. No problem at all and our server remembered us and even what we brought to drink. Great place and the food is excellent. You would think you're at Peter Lugar's.

The Best Steak in NJ
When I first read that Wayne Steak House would be opening and that the co-owners had spent their previous years at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn, I couldn't wait to go. The drive to Peter Luger's from my home in Northern NJ is an hour. The drive to Wayne Steak House is 5 minutes. From the first meal to my most recent (I have been to Wayne Steak House at least a dozen times), they are, without equal, the best steakhouse in NJ. They are on par with Peter Lugers. AND...the servers are not surly and rushed, as PL servers are. This is one of those places that is a MUST TRY...add it to your food bucket list. Oh, and it's BYOB so the cost of eating like a king is reasonable.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Local steakhouse with great food
The quality and preparation of the food was excellent. My wife and I enjoyed everything we ordered. The service was very professional and attentive. Unfortunately it can get very noisy, even if the place isn't that busy. With several conversations going, it became hard to hear across the table. Also, although they are using top qualify food, it is a bit expensive for a local restaurant.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rib eye steak was done to order and was excellent
We will be back.

Meat Lovers Paradise
It's hard to be this meat... but one of my colleagues ordered the lobster tail which dwarfed the steaks (well almost anyway)...

Worth a Second Chance
Both my wife & I were in a steak mood (which never happens). We tried WSH when it first opened and were disappointed with length of wait for a table (with reservations!) and the service. Believing in second chances and that they needed to get the kinks out since they were new - we recently made a reservation and arrived about twenty minutes early to get into the queue for our reservation time. We were sat at the requested time, the service was very good, and the meal exceeded expectations. The owner periodically checked in with us during the meal and we really enjoyed our experience. It was a great date night! Hopefully the stars will align again very soon where we both are in a steak mood because I want to go back!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food & accommodating service
My husband loves Schlage. When I made the reservation I requested Schlage be available. Wayne Steak House made sure it was there for us all (5). We started with bacon strips that remind me great tasting chorizo. Our rib eye steaks were perfection. The creamed spinach was the best I've had...light, while still creamy and flavored with just the right amount of garlic. The cheese cake was rich and not heavy at all. And the cappuccino was so good that I took the remainder with me when we had to leave before I had finished it. Oh yeah...we'll be back again.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
My first experience at Wayne steakhouse was heavenly to say the least, from the bacon to the amazing bone in rib eye I was in food heaven!My husband had the bone in filet and broiled lobster tail that was cooked to perfection. Price wise it was worth the extra buck bc it was a byob.recommend anyone in Nj to try Wayne steakhouse,being from NYC I thought nothing would be better than Peter Lugers but Wayne steakhouse is a household name for Nj I enjoyed the service all the staff served us together from our appetizers to dessert!The home made key lime pie was the perfect ending to my perfect meal,truly love that Nj finally has a steakhouse with amazing steak!The waiters and waitresses gave great service!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first time dining here, and everyone in my party loved it here! The salad that comes with the meal is so great---it has an amazing "secret" vinaigrette that was to die for. The steak was cooked perfectly medium rare, although it wasn't sizzling by the time it got to our table. The sides were excellent, we had the German potatoes and sauteed spinach and garlic---both were excellent. The pecan pie was decadent and delicious, and strawberries and cream were good for a lighter dessert. Having a BYOB really helps cut the price, we all thought it was an excellent value and we will all definitely be back! Great dining experience~
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food and service
The steaks are great. ! The service is excellent. It's a nice touch that the steak comes out on a sizzling plate and it's cut into strips already. When the staff puts the plates on the table they serve a few slices onto your plate. Also nice that all sides are family style and served onto your plate as well. Basically a whole team comes to your table and serves everyone the first round of food. All the portions are huge... No. I mean huge!!! We had the porterhouse for two and couldn't finish it. Our teen sons split the filet and hardly finished it. It is very expensive, but you get what you pay for. If you want an average steak for $15, go to outback.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this place !!!
The food was excellent with service to match. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, the service provided was outstanding . The steaks were perfectly cooked the way we asked and from appertizer to dessert, everything came out perfectly timed. We will absolutely be back real soon. And don't forget it's a BYOB !!!
