A word from The Patriot Steakhouse & Tavern
The Patriot Steakhouse & Tavern is Southwest Ohio's best value for Steaks, Ribs, Fresh Seafood, Pork Chops & Tenderloin, Grilled Chicken Breasts & Deep Fried Chicken Tenders. We also offer Fresh Salads and Pasta Dishes.

Our Bar is very comfortable, and our selections are very reasonably priced. We have a wine list that can best be described as aggressive. Our theory on bottles of wine? We'd rather sell them than dust them.

We have great food in a casual dining environment. We don't get pretentious and we don't use tablecloths. We simply serve the best food for miles in any direction and we do it in a fun environment.

Our menu starts with numerous Appetizer options including Shrimp Cocktail, Crab Cakes, Potato Skins, Chili Nachos, etc.. All of our Soups are made from scratch and our Clam Chowder and Crab & Lobster Bisque are some of the best you'll ever have.

    The menu was extensive, the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Searching for a place near Lebanon with hopes of taking a relative out for dinner. Patriot was recommended and we were extremely pleased. We've been assured arrangements can be made to help with a handicap customer and would welcome the visit. The local homecoming was that weekend and loads of kids were enjoying dinner before the dance. Patriot obviously appeals to a wide range of diners. The staff was also great in assisting with making choices to observe a gluten-free diet. The food was wonderful and the servings generous. Our server was absolutely delightful. We'll definitely be returning... soon!

    Great, quality food selection for every taste, allergy and budget. My kid's meal was $4.99, large and and delicious. My $47 steak was quite possibly te best I've ever had- and make Jeff Ruby look like Ponderosa. Amazing. We will be back.

    My family and I were camping and had that day that rained all day. We choose to go out for diner to escape the camper for a while. They handled our family of 7 very well. We made reservations and had no wait for 7pm on a Friday. The food was very good. Not a high end steakhouse, more like a Texas Roadhouse minus the peanuts and chain feel, but still tasty. The kids enjoyed the atmosphere and ate all their food as well. My steak was cooked perfectly and the crab legs were equally as good. I would definitely go back when in the area.

    I listen to 55KRC talk radio every day and they rave about this restaurant. I would have to say that I was very pleased. They also have wonderful seafood and the portions are great for a big eater like myself. I would have to say that this restaurant is worth visiting and it also has a great drink/wine selection. I think most diner's would be pleasantly surprised. The food was absolutely delicious, I will definitely be back.

    PS&T is a delightful tavern...not dressy and real Midwestern charm. Our server was appropriately chatty about menu items and happily answered all of our questions, as one in our group has allergy issues. Two people in our group had steak and said it was perfectly cooked and delicious. One of them has eaten in the best steak houses in the US, and gave PS&T a thumbs up. The salmon, however, was a highlight dish.

    After listening to Brain Williams promote the Patriot Steakhouse on 55WKRC I thought it would be worth a try. I booked a table for 7 at 6PM on a Thurs. Table was ready and seated promptly. Ambiance was confusing to say the least, Sinatra playing overhead, frozen drinks menus on table out of an 80's timewarp cafe, layout not conducive to larger families. When ordering found out they were out of a couple items due to things not being ordered by the kitchen. Once food arrives everything looked great, most things were good; however, crab cake had no taste of crab - mostly filler, and one of the Porterhouses was mostly gristle and fat. Voiced dissatisfaction with steak, took $10 off tab but manager never made the way over to discuss the issue.

    Food and service were both good. We both had the same entree so we can't speak too broadly about the menu. We ate outdoors(our choice) but were right next to the parking lot, the indoor space lacked atmosphere. We thought the prices for sandwiches and some meals were OK but the steaks were high. Have had equal or better meals in places with better atmosphere at a lesser price.

    Always a great experience. Food was wonderful and service was great. If you are looking for great steak or seafood this is the place for you. It's set in a strip mall but don't let that fool you. The inside is very inviting. Great for couples or a family. Give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

    First time visit. The staff did a good job of taking care of us. The two of us each had pork dishes. My wife ordered pulled pork. The dish was tender and flavorful. Nice size portion. I ordered the pork trio. Pork chop, tenderloin, and ribs. The ribs were good. Sweet Baby Rays sauce. Nothing great but ok. The other pork selections were pink in the middle. My fault. I didn't order well done and I forget that this is the new standard for pork.. The selection was just ok. I had beer was great. My wife had a red sangria. It was worst she ever had. This place is more on level of a sports bar with ok food. I would be careful about ordering a steak. You get what you pay for.

We talked about attending the Brian Thomas lunch. We can't wait to come back again and will continue to support this local restaurant.

    The restaurant is located in a good spot for meeting friends between Dayton and Cincinnati. The surf and turf was excellent, with a small 4 oz steak cooked just right. The grilled Tilapia was perfectly seasoned and grilled to a good texture. We had a nice talk with one of the owners... really like to support locally owned businesses.

    I've had the same waitress the past few times I've been there, and she is super friendly and helpful. The food is always good. It's not what I consider a particularly high end restaurant, so it definitely lives up to my expectations - which are a super casual place with tasty American cuisine. The proteins, in my opinion, aren't going to blow your mind. I only eat seafood, and it's good; not the freshest most delectable ever, but definitely good. The sweet potatoes are always perfectly prepared. The mac and cheese is more than mac and cheese it's tortellini with a super cheesy sauce - good stuff if you're up for a stick to the ribs mac-n-cheese. The shrooms were also good.

    Made reservations for four five days ahead of time thru the internet site. We arrived earily but was seated right away. It took us a while to decide on our orders because the menu has so much to pick from. We all ordered steaks and some of us ordered a combination of steak and seafood. The steaks were some of the best we ever had anywhere and the seafood made you feel like you were in CT. The best crab cakes in the Cincinnati area for sure. I highly recommend this place and we will be back to enjoy once again.

    All in all pretty food food, except the medium filet was maybe medium rare at best and my girlfriend couldn't eat in until we fried it up for breakfast the next morning. Also, the cold breeze that kept coming in from the door opening and closing. The fried shrimp was outstanding, baked potato was very good, but cole slaw was just OK. Good music being played by the piano man. This was my first time going there and my girlfriend had been there many times and I would definitely go back.
