  • "I had a hot date with a very special lady on a Saturday evening. I asked for a sort of quiet table, away from the main crowd so that we could talk and get to know each other. We were given a table in the corner.....just as ordered! Very nice evening, great food and service and wonderful atmosphere."

  • "We dine at the Gas House often, it is one of our favorites. However Friday night visit was not great. We have special needs & ask for a booth in the bar when making reservations. We not only didn't get in the bar, we didn't get a booth. We we asked the hostess about this , she was rude, said you need to make reservations 3 weeks in advance to get a booth. SOORY I don't believe that. Was disappointed that they didn't try to meet our needs."

  • "I had the Fried chicken cobb big salad, it was pretty good although there either wasn't any bleu cheese on it or not enough to taste it. My friend had the 8 oz filet mignon, simply seared. She ordered it medium and there wasn't a hint of red as you would expect for medium rare, it was dark red and raw in the middle - she could not finish it. I'd go back as I prefer to support local dining establishments, but I'd probably try something else from the menu."

    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Unfortunately, I was dissappointed in the Jumbo - I expected it to be more chuncky. The smoke flavor was great, but almost too distracting. The bread was truly amazing - one of a kind! Very nice and unique! I loved the live music, we were there on a Fri evening."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I had the chicken club sandwich. It was cold, the chicken was so tough that I couldn't chew it. The fries had no seasoning or taste and were very bland. The waiter was great until we got our food. He never came back to check on us so I couldn't tell him how terrible the food was. He only came back to give us our checks."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The were very juicy and crusted very well on the outside. The flavor was spectacular. The bread was delicious as always. The staff were very friendly and we had great music to dine to."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We so enjoyed our first visit to the Gas House! The food was amazing and the ambience was incredible! We love the architecture of the building - love how you have maintained the history! The service was fairly good - perhaps our server was new?? Overall, we were extremely pleased with our visit and plan to return soon!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great location and moderate price are pluses. Food quality is uneven, same dish can vary from visit to visit, including being frequently over seasoned. Smoke from the kitchen spread to the dining room and lingered unpleasantly. 3 guests in our party ordered gumbo, enjoyed it in the past, but this time found it so spicy as to be inedible. Great Fort Wayne tradition that has slipped somewhat."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The Gas House is a Ft Wayne Classic. Historic building, great service with the finest steaks and prime rib plus a wonderful seafood selection. Your loss if you don't give it a try!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We have eaten at the Gas House several times in the last 3 years or so and are always very pleased. This time it was the restaurant of choice for our Valentine's Day meal. Due to time constraints we visited at lunchtime. My husband had the filet mignon and declared it to be the best steak he'd ever eaten, cooked perfectly. I had the deep-fried shrimp and have to say they were also cooked to perfection. Our side dishes were also delicious. Our waitress was friendly, fun and attentive, but not too attentive. All-in-all it was so great that we can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I was late planning my Valentines Day dinner with my wife and as a last resort I booked the Gas House. I wasn't expecting much and almost cancelled because I wasn't looking forward to the meal or the experience. I was pleasantly surprised! The Gas House has a very rustic atmosphere and yesteryear charm. They had a live Jazz guitarist that played exceptionally well but not so loud you couldn't have a conversation at normal volume. We sat at the bar before the meal and enjoyed a few drinks while waiting for our reservation. They came and got us 30 minutes early and seated us. The staff and the food weren't world class but I must say they were a solid good. My wife, a big fan of Eddie Merlots, but wants to come back with friends."

  • "I absolutely love this place. The dining area is simple and beautiful, with hard wood floors and semi-private booths for a romantic dinner or long tables for families, and the service is always great. And the food! We always get the filet mignon sliders, even though having those and the complimentary, heavenly, crispy-on-the-outside-soft-on-the-inside bread make it really hard to finish our dinners. We've tried several different dinners and haven't found anything we didn't like. My husband's favorite is the Delmonico steak, which is always cooked to perfection and mine is the Beef Tenderloin salad. It's worth not being able to button my pants to have a side of Souffled Sweet Potatoes for dessert!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The waiter was friendly, my food was delicious, and the prices are reasonable. My mother's bacon-wrapped filet mignon was underdone. However, she did not send it back she just dealt with it. I had the simply seared filet mignon and it was perfect! All in all it's a nice place to get a great steak!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I had the New York strip, which was absolutely wonderful! They were ready for us at the reservation time, no extra wait."

  • "Didn't meet our standards for my wife's 60th birthday. I mentioned is was her birthday and she wasn't offered even a small desert. Meal was ok but not great. We most definitely will not be going there again unfortunately. Great atmosphere, but lacking in other areas."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We love eating at the Gas House. It has that old friend charm, but still has been updated for the ambience that today's diners want. The food never disappoints and the service is always spot on."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Got there early evening. Wanted to have a nice steak. Ordered appetizer,filet and dessert. Every single item sewemed like it was re cooked. Nothing seemed fresh. Definately, I would not go back and would not recommend. Waiter never came back to take any of the dishes so they all layed there accumulating even after I left."

  • "Halls Gas House is our favorite Halls restaurant. The food is wonderful and we love the atmosphere. They also have a great way to make reservations. I love being able to make them online. In warmer weather , the Deck is a great place to hang out."

  • "Wish we found this hometown favorite years ago! It is in a historical building right in the heart of the ARTS district. The menu has plenty of budget minded entrees that are fabulous as well as the higher end features. Their is a wide menu choice. The associated outdoor RiverFront restaurant got us hooked this summer which is jam packed, a great late night find, with a scenic view and a hot spot, and vibrant bar scene. Alas, as it is on the outdoor deck, it was closed during the winter. We liked to have Sunday lunch on the river and then walk to the Art Museum and Artlink gallery. It is also very close to the Civic Theater."

  • "The menu for Savor Fort Wayne was perfect for the five of us. The food was amazing, the portion size was big (I had lunch the next day). I had the Chicken and would like to request to the chef , please put it on the menu. It was my first time there and I will come back for sure. But... the service was lacking. The hostess did not give us a wine menu and our server didn't offer to get us one when we started asking questions. She didn't know what beers they had and was confused by the term micro brew (which they were lacking in). My mother in law and I were surprised they didn't have any local wine. We were having a great time and I really wanted another glass of wine, she never asked me. Please spend some time training your staff."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "We enjoyed the prompt service and variety of menu items. We individually all had different wants at a late hour and the Gas House was able to accomodate them. We will be back even at an earlier hour."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "My wife and I celebrated our anniversary. The bartender was the best we've had in years. We had an awesome time and are planning to go back as often as possible. This is our new favorite place that does not have live music. Both the indoor and deck options are extremely well run and worth the time and money. The prime rib is heavenly. A sweet find and Fort Wayne treasure."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Quite busy being the Sunday before Christmas, but reservations through Open Table made it simple. Noise level despite the "crowd" was very low. Our seats were a little bit dark, but we could see well enough. Food was excellent - both our steaks were flavorful and TENDER, cooked to perfection. My spud was very slightly underdone, but that did nothing to diminish the meal. Oh, and for Heaven's Sake - ORDER THE GUMBO as a starter. Spicy, but if they sold it by the quart I'd buy it."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Very great experience. Great dinning experience. The only down side to the whole experience was we received our dinner salad and really didn't get a chance to start on them and the main course was arriving."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "It was a special day for grandma to take children and family out to the Gas House. They loved it and the food and service were great. We were not rushed and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The portions were plentiful. A good place for the whole family."

  • "My husband and I dined at the Gas House for a romantic night out, and we were not disappointed! The food was great! I had a nice juicy NY Strip. It was cooked to perfection. My side was the sweet potato soufflé. I absolutely loved it! I'm not big on sweet potatoes but this was magnificent!"
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "My wife had the surf & turf and I had the blackened rib eye. The lobster (my wife shared) was tender, sweet and the most flavorful I have had in years. My rib eye was huge, tender, properly prepared and the best tasting steak I have had in some time."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "We have eaten here for lunch and evening. Good quality food, moderately priced, and plenty of food. We have enjoyed it so much we have not tried the other Don Hall restaurants. (We have lived in the area for one year so hopefully we can visit the other restaurants in the chain in the near future.)"
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "This was the first visit for 2 out of 3 of us. The food was excellent and the service was awesome. The noise level was a bit high for a nice intimate dinner but that was in part to the live music. The music itself was nice and enjoyable, but it was just difficult to have a conversation with my friends. I would definitely go back, though. I loved the entire experience."

  • "Once again the Gas House did not disappoint!! We were celebrating a young ladies 13th birthday. The attention from the wait staff was amazing she was treated as the special person she was all night. The setting was lovely and the food was fantastic. There are no bad choices on the menu although I do miss the "chicken kiev" from the past. We finished dinner with her being presented with a huge piece of German chocolate cake with a lit sparkler."
