Our waitress was great and the staff too. I splurged on a steak dinner, and usually I don’t complain, but I ordered a medium rare steak, and it was cooked medium well almost well done. It wasn’t good. I am used to going here as a treat. I will say, the waitress brought me out a new steak that was very good, but everything else on my plate was cold. Disappointed.

Moms steak was not what she ordered. Not done enough and cold. My boyfriends steak was extremely well done ( not how he ordered it) it was so tough to eat.

I think eating outdoors made the ambience feel less like a steakhouse and more like a casual cafe. The portions were average, except the lobsters were very small, which explains the price. The server was amazing and did everything he could to make sure we had a great experience. But I think I will explore other steak houses for next time.

Mother’s Day brunch was great here great food drinks and service ! Even brought our daughter and most servers always set the food and drinks right in front of her not thinking that the child will throw it all off the table since she’s not even 2 yrs old yet but this server did a great job of making sure nothing was close to her and always checked in. Great time!

My meal didn’t come out with the rest of my family’s and when they realized the error, started making it then. They did offer me a free appetizer and dessert but that wasn’t what I wanted - I just wanted what I ordered. When my steak finally came out, it was poorly cooked. No discount was taken for my dish.

Service was great but the steaks were undercooked and one was tough and inedible. It’s usually a lot better than that so we’ll give them another try.

Reserved a table in Standard dining. Arrived 15 minutes after opening. Staff were prompt and friendly but sat us in the bar without telling us the dining room opened in fifteen minutes if we wanted to wait. Opentable reservation system allowed making the reservation for 30 minutes before the room opened. Had to send a steak back because it was overdone. The chicken was a bit dry. Otherwise food was generally good but not great. Wait staff were attentive and kept everything moving well at our pace, so overall a good meal.

Server didnt check on table. We ended up ordering more drinks and when they finally got there we were basically done with food, but when it came to dropping the check they were there real fast and came back fast too.

Every time I go to Black Angus, the food is absolutely great. We celebrated Mother’s Day and my mom and dad‘s 35th anniversary. Black Angus in El Cajon is a great place to go for special occasions. Well I haven’t counted how many times my family and I have gone, we have had great experience every time we went. We absolutely will be coming we absolutely will be coming again and again whenever we’re in the mood.

We came here to celebrate our 43rd anniversary. They had Prime Rib available just the way I like it, Blood Rare. Everything was great Our server, Molly, was fantastic. Very pleasant and helpful throughout our whole meal. I brought my grandson here a few weeks back and we had Molly as our server then, and just knew I had to ask for her for our celebration dinner. Thank you for a wonderful time and very fond memories.

All was great but I did not appreciate getting a message from the reservation system stating that I did not show up and they were tracking no shows which could prevent me from making future reservations. I DID show up, I DID arrive on time and I DID have a full meal there with friends. The person at the desk apparently did not confirm my arrival in their reservation system. Get rid of the electronic reservation system.

enjoyed it very much. Great waiter.

Do not like the downsizing of the Prime Rib portion. Should have warned us it's not the size it used to be.

Other than that, every thing was great.

We made a reservation and were seated separately from other guests which we loved(due to covid) and extra privacy. Only issue was if we needed something (ie extra dressing or condiments) there was no one around to ask.

It was unusual eating in a half empty restaurant. But it was "OUT" to dinner which we haven't been able to do for awhile. Still the same food and service.
