    Shula's Steak House - Center Valley, PA is on par with steakhouses in Philadelphia, NY, and other larger cities. For my entrée I chose the Steak Mary Anne, two 5-ounce filet medallions with a rich demi glace sauce. The steak was prepared to perfection, and the demi glace sauce added the right amount of tanginess and flavor without overpowering the taste of the meat. The potatoes gratin were a bit dry, and not as cheesy-flavored as I had expected. I would have liked to taste more cheese in them, but they were quite satisfactory anyway. All-in-all, I'm definitely looking forward to a return visit soon.

    Shula's is always top notch. I've dined here for special occasions as well as just when my friends and I wanted some great food. Each time is just as good as the last, with everything on the menu impressing everyone in our group. The service is always pleasant and on-point from start to finish. I tried the Onion Soup for the first time and it was some of the best I've ever had. You can't go wrong at Shula's!

    While the food was quite tasty and of good portion, the cost was extremely high. This is not a restaurant where one goes regularly unless you are quite wealthy. This is Lehigh Valley not New York City. Once the restaurant became busy noise level was high and a bit annoying. Our servers were very accommodating and pleasant. Let me say that we will not be returning unless we win the lottery. There are other restaurants in the area that provide the same quality service and food for a much more affordable cost.

    Everything was excellent with the exception of our Server. She was barely visible. Only to take the order and then present the check. The assistant server we had throughout the evening was exceptional !! Pleasant, knowledgable and effective. Attitude from the "lead" Server is what prohitted 5 Stars all around.

    Shula's is our go to restaurant for special occasions. We love the atmosphere, service, and of course the STEAKS! We are never disappointed. An additional perk for us is that it only takes us 5 minutes to get there! Lobster tail and filet for me this time and my husband's usual porterhouse. Quite an enjoyable evening. Marliese

    My wife and daughter have birthday's very close so we decided to make it a special night and celebrate at Shula's. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We will definitely do this again and not just for birthday's. I got hooked on Shula's while on a business trip in Miami. I know it costs a little more but you will not be disappointed. Definitely on my top five restaurant list of all time. Way to go team!

    Shula's delivers on a classic steak house promise--wonderful cuts of beef, with hearty sides. Further, the service was spot on--not too cloying but never leaving us in want for a moment. My prime rib was succulent; the wedge salad extremely tasty and the creamed spinach exactly what one expects from a good steak house. It's not cheap, but if it were, the steaks would not be as good.

    If you love just-right-prepared high quality cuts of meat, and understand the value of paying for it, you'll understand Shula's. This is not a discount steak shop. It's a carnivore's dining experience. Reservations are ready at the time agreed. Staff is welcoming and attentive. If you're a return customer, you know what you want and how you want it prepared, order at your pace. Same is true for "newbies", however if you are not familiar with Shula's, it may be good to listen to the brief description of choices, as well as the presentation of beef selections available. Impressive story, impressive cuts of meat and impressively prepared. Enjoy. I do.

    Although the gf menu isn't mentioned on Shula's website, it's mentioned on Open Table. The gf menu offers a variety of steak, fish, side-dishes, salads and a few desserts. Our servers seemed well-trained, attentive without being intrusive, and pleasant regardless of our table not ordering anything from the bar. Our table of 4 ordered steak, seafood and one vegetarian meal made up of just side dishes. Side dishes are all "family style" and feed from 2 to 4 people. Overall, we had a nice experience at the restaurant. Be prepared, cost of the meal racks up fast. Each ice tea refill is a separate charge, etc. Several Dessert orders require 20 min. prep time, so you commit to order before you're sure you'll have room. Dessert was average.

    From cocktails to dessert ... One if the best steakhouses. Obviously pricey but you get what you pay for! Great wine list and speciality cocktails...if you are not outrageously hungry - the beef tip APPT is more than enough for dinner with a salad or side...save room for dessert...some great choices. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Although the food was very good and equal to other classic steakhouses you paid $$ for what you received. Was put off by a less then cheerful hostess. Waitstaff was prompt and helpful. Overall I would recommend if you are looking for a NY steakhouse in the Valley

    What hurts Shula's is the price. Overall the food is good but you can get good food elsewhere. Again the food is good, not outstanding. Outstanding is what you would expect for the price of Shula's. There are many other places in the valley and beyond that one could get as good a meal for less. Compared to other restaurants they are over priced on their salads, side dishes, and drinks. From the amount of empty seats at prime time on a Saturday night it appears I am not the only one that has noticed this. I have been to Shula's many times in the past however this most likely has been my last. Too many others choices now.

    We can always count on a delicious meal at Shulas. We were a little disappointed in the quality of service. The usual attentiveness we have grown to enjoy was not apparent on this visit. Although our servers were friendly and informative they appeared to be distracted. This will not stop us from coming back to Shulas for maybe they were having an off night.

    My wife and I went here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were quite disappointed. We had a 4:30pm reservation so we could make a show later that evening. upon arrival we waited at the hostess stand for four minutes before the bartender yelled over to us to hold on while she finds the hostess. A few minutes later our hostess arrived and asked if we preferred a booth or a table and I replied either as long as we were not near the kitchen. We followed the hostess and she put our menus on the table adjacent to the kitchen door. I said we would not sit there as it was next to the kitchen. She said "oh yeah you did mention that" and placed us at the next table. I have more to say about the bad food but am out of characters.

    Dinner was ok. I think we expected more for the price. I do feel that Emeril's Chop House at the Sands was much better. The waitress never told us the sides were meant for 2 people to share and we ended up with 2 potato sides. They also didn't have a menu for specialty drinks, I'm not a wine drinker and prefer something else.
