    Food was good and well prepared. Very pricey, but that was expected. The three of us felt our waiters had a condescending attitude. Like over the top politeness, but not friendly. Probably, won't go back anytime soon.

    It was great to see the Dolphin nostalgia. I’ve been several times over the last 20 years. We don’t go more often because it’s an hour drive each way and it makes for a long night. It’s certainly a place to take a meat and potatoes lover. Try it, you’ll like it.

    My wife and I visited the restaurant for Valentine's Day and had a very pleasant experience overall. The food was cooked well and was flavorful. The bread they offer at the beginning of your meal is outstanding and the cesar salad is equally as tasty. My wife ordered chicken and I order steak for our entrees. We both enjoyed our meals. Sides have to be ordered separately, but they are large and can be shared. The ambiance was somewhat romantic. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent. We spent more than we normally would on dining out, but it was well worth it for a special occasion. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

    As usual, the food and service was fantastic. We were a little disappointed that we could only get a 5:30pm reservation and when we left, there were plenty of open tables that would have accomodated us at a later time.

    My wife had the lobster bisque and I ordered the crab cakes for appetizers and both were above average in presentation and flavor. For dinner, we ordered a filet mignon and lobster tails with creamed spinach and mushroom sides. Each of these were perfectly cooked and tasted delicious. To finish my wife ordered the chocolate souffle which was just so so and a cup of expresso which was served luke warm. Only downside of the evening was that are bill contained errors which could have led to $50 in over charges if not detected and the fact that we had to wait an inordinate amount of time to pay the check. Sitting at an empty table with no food or drink for 15-20 minutes for the service staff to return with your credit card and bill is annoying!

  • Great steak and sea scallops!!!!
    Alaska
    Dined on 1/11/2014
    The steak was cooked perfectly and taste like true "prime" grade. The wine was delicious and reasonably priced, a La Crema Chardonnay. I am from Alaska so I love sea scallops. These scallops were spiced perfectly, cooked just right and taste delicious. The dessert, a molten chocolate cake, came in a single serving size that was enough for 3 people. The service, beginning with the parking and including the host, the bar, the waiter and the food servers were all outstanding. This is a perfect place for our next special occasion dinner.

    The quality of the meat is excellent. The presentation is Morton's like as they present the available cuts table side. I ordered the Kansas City strip "Pittsburg" and they nailed it. The sides are very good, but clearly not the stars that the meat is. My friends split the 7 layer chocolate and they said it was fantastic. I went for a business dinner, and I'm looking forward to taking my wife soon.

    Have been a customer since the restaurant opened. It is not as good as it used to be. Food is good, menu changed, prices are too relatively high. Service, not as attentive as it was over the years - personnel changes, maybe management attitude. Atmosphere, again, it was a friendly place before, aside from a few old time servers, the new ones are just there. It does not hold up to the standards that should be expected.

    We weren't impressed with much of anything here. The room itself used to be the men's grill of a modest golf club. A little paint didn't do much to improve it. The food was OK. The meat wasn't especially tasty. The spinach was overpowered by a layer of parmesan. The baked potato was a little burnt. The staff was grumpy.

    Open bickering between Server Hector and Bartender should not happen in front of the guests at an establishment of this caliber. When he wasn't arguing with the bartender he was arguing with Server Alisha. Her demeanor was so affected by the confrontation that other customers were denied her confidence and attention which I received from her prior to the incident. I am sure Hector was just having a bad day, but that can't be allowed to make it to the floor. Also, I would like to give praise to your valet and Server Renae. As a first time patron, I was confused by my surroundings, but the valet was patient and understanding. He allowed me to settle and made sure I was comfortable before leaving.

    This was our third visit to Shula's although the first at this location (previous 2 were in Fort Lauderdale). Shula's does not disappoint when it comes to quality of both food and service in either location and it was a welcome reminder of our previous visits. In true American steakhouse style, the portions are enormous - the smallest steak is a 10 ouncer, the largest 48 oz. Side dishes are more than enough for two to share. The green beans were a nice change to the traditional asparagus and mushrooms and the apple cobbler for dessert was delicious. As far as service, this was easily one of the most attentive and accommodating group of servers we have ever had. Relaxed and friendly but also professional and well-trained.

    I was born and raised in Miami. I always wanted to eat at your restaurant. With you being closed Sundays it took years for me to get there from my home in Boca Raton. I was greatly disappointed. My uncles steak was dry. The cheese potato's were dri. the mushrooms were chopped the spinash was average the best side dish was the steak fries. The place seemed old and musty. I do not mind paying a $100 per person for a good meal but this was not a pleasant experience. With the exception of the servers witch were hard to understand but they really were pleasant. Sorry I will not be back. I love my Dolphins but not this Reataurant.

  • My First Experience @ Don Shula's

    Dined on 12/12/2013
    I anticipated with great excitement my 'first' visit to Don Shula's Steakhouse. I had heard from others in past years how wonderful it was and that they had the best steaks. Well, no one told me (a newbie at ordering steaks) that you don't ask for it well done. My mistake, but I learned. Of course, afterwards, everyone has told me you should have asked for it medium well at least. I will know on my next visit. My strip was dry and I had to ask for steak sauce to put on it. Other than learning by trial & error, my 'first' experience at Don Shula's Steakhouse was wonderful! I look forward to my next opportunity to visit Don Shula's Steakhouse and truly experience a great juicy tender steak; no more well done for me. :)

    Great way to celebrate a birthday!! The menu was outstanding. To start, with the perfect margarita, to end with creme brulee for desert, it was a great dining experience. The display and presentation of the different cuts of meat proved to be very helpful. The service was truly outstanding. The birthday gift of a free entree was a treat. Will recommend to others and will do so again myself. Happy Birthday to me!!!!

Dont try the key lime pie because all you going to be trying is lime very very very sour. I would not recommend this restaurant to to the fact that they serve such little food and its not that tasty compared to other resturants like the forge, Gordon Biersch, Smith & Wollensky who are pricy but serve enough food and it taste great.
