Great experience cooking your own choices of meats and lots of fun as a group- we were six. The food was excellent and we pretty much managed to cook all our steaks the way we like them. Minor gripes, the sides, fries etc didn’t arrive until we were half way through our steaks and it wasn’t particularly busy. Second they were too keen to close up and were putting chairs on tables and sweeping the floor around us whilst we were still eating and drinking, not really what you expect even if it is their last skiing week.

This was a fun restaurant and the food was delicious. My only complaint was the fact that they were out of filets when it was time for me to pick out my steak. But the New York strip was delish in its place.

Very crowded and noisy. Seemed they wanted us to hurry so they could turn the table over for the next customers! Expensive when you have to serve yourself and cook your own food - but are still expected to leave a tip. At least I didn’t have to do the dishes ...

Last year we were on the first floor and loved it and would highly recommend. Food was great and my son could not wait for another bison steak. This year we were upstairs, the grill was packed, too loud to visit and the wait was forever.

It is a little over priced for the food. The price on the steaks was high enough to have included at least one side.

For 30 years we have becoming here as a family, first Boomerangs and now 8th Street Steakhouse. Steaks are great, all you can eat salad and great family time around the grill as you grill your steak. Highly recommend this establishment.

Really thought the prices were high for what you received. The place really needed a good cleaning also. One of those “been there done that” places. $38 for a steak that you had to cook yourself with no sides really was a bit excessive. Service was good though and the food was good.

Sides came out too early and were sitting on our table while we were still grilling so they got cold.
Pricy for having to grill your own.

This restaurant is perfect for a family with children who would like to cook their own steak. BUT the sides and salad are lacking. Think Golden Coral with better meat. The steak choices are outstanding... the meat is quality. But that is where the accolades stop. I ordered the signature pineapple martini and am not sure it actually had alcohol in it. The baked potato was definitely not cooked fresh. If you are in the business you know who to tell when the starch has settled from refrigeration. Having said that.... the kids loved cooking their own steaks ... there wasn’t anyone helping at the grill and there were a lot of people grilling (kinda crazy situation.)

They even have a kids meal for your little ones. My kiddo loved the corn dogs

Only come to this place if you want to have minimal service. You serve your own salad via salad bar, then you order overpriced meats that YOU HAVE TO COOK YOURSELF?????? The cooking times are way off. When we told the person who served us a raw steak and told us how much time to cook it that the times were off, he admitted that the grill was not great. We had to stand over a hot grill for 20+ minutes to get a medium steak. I’m just seriously confused how this place exists/why anyone would pay to go to a restaurant and cook your own overpriced food and and then be expected to tip on top of that. We only came because a family member really wanted to check it out but rest assured we will not be back.

I frequent good steakhouses often and was disappointed at this one. It is more of a gimmick as far as cooking your own food. The steak cuts were mediocre. I wish I had tried another steak restaurant in the area.

We thought the restaurant was exceptionally clean and the food was over the top. Great cuts of meat and my wife said the Crab legs were awesome! The staff was friendly and accommodating, plus the over all cost was very moderate for a tourist town.

Make this restaurant one you do not miss!!

We made a reservation and even showed up a few minutes early. We then had to wait about 40 minutes to finally get set. Oh, you will also pay a normal price for a piece of meat but then YOU get to grill it.

Place could be cool but its way over priced for grilling your own food, a very small salad bar, and getting your sides well after you have eaten your meat. Not the best experience.

Great ambience and good food - cooked by YOU. So if you do go, ad a minute or two per side to the recommended times. I grill a lot at home and still my steak was a bit rarer than it should have been (and I like rare meat). I only have myself to blame or I wasn't sure of the grill temperature or I was concerned I might have overcooked it or I was distracted or, hell, I don't know. Still I'd go again.

I say no since most of my friends go out to eat to avoid cooking their own food. After all, isn't that the point of going out? The meat is of good quality but if you have a good grocer nearby and a grill, you cn do this at home. The truffle fries are very good. Standing over a grill, watching my food cook and then have others come back and look for grill space due to their under cooking was enough for me to do this once.
