This was my first time at Steak and Stein, but I have dined at the other Clearman's restaurants frequently in the past. The menu contains many items found at the North Woods Inns and many that are not. The scallops were as good as the sister restaurants as was the baked potato and the cheese bread and the salads. There were many more steak choices and dessert offerings. The staff was friendly and helpful. With peanuts- no shells on the floor- a cocktail, an appetizer, salads, cheese bread, a combination steak and scallop dinner and Bananas Foster, my date and I found much food to bring home for another night.

Great to be able to make reservation thru Open Table. Staff is very attentive in bar & dining room especially our waitress Wendy. Lobster was superb & steaks were delicious. The bread is addictive & the salads yummy. The prices are reasonable but a bit pricey to enjoy more often, but will definitely return.

I've been coming here for a long time. This time, the steak was not as good. It was a bit tough and not as flavorful as usual. I hope that this is not the beginning of the end to what is one if my favorite steakhouses. Looking forward to them improving or going back to being excellent as they usually are.

The food is excellent. Their signature salad is accompanied by their red cabbage slaw which are tasty when they are combined together. Steak quality is excellent and is prepared just like you order it. Baked potatoe is the size of a size 10 men's shoe with all the trimmings, The garlic bread flows continuously. The servers are attentive.

The rib eye steak, large bake potato, onion rings and salads were excellent. You just can't have one slice of bread because it's addicting. Also, you might want to try the berry berry martini....yumm

My parents went here on their first date in 1949; we returned for many family special occasions over the years, weddings, birthdays, retirements, you name it. It is a beautiful setting, essentially frozen in time. Walking into the bar, you're greeted by fagstone, hammered copper drapes, old oil paintings, and a swoopy bar. The dining room is as beautiful and just like I have always remembered it. The food is as good as ever - perfectly cooked steaks, incredible sides, and matched by great, professional service. Highly recommended. I can't wait to go back.

This place is definitely going downhill fast. First of all no more large bowl of salad just a small plate. Second, the cheese bread is hard and stale. Third, the famous large baked potatoes are a thing of the past and are about the size of your fist & also they are now "skimping" on the once great onion rings. Third, the prices have gone through the roof in regards to paying more & getting less. Fourth, the lame entertainment is way too loud where you cannot carry on a conversation & almost have to yell to be heard. Do you executives @ Clearmans really think that we as long term customers and future ex-customers do not notice the cost cutting measures that you have implemented to raise revenue? 80 dollars for 1 meal & a side meal of salad?

I have to say the service was horrible on Mothers Day. the food was cold and we had to wait 30 mins just for the check. I have been there many times for Dinner and things were great. This was a bad experience.

I took my family there for a special Mother's Day dinner on May 10, 2014 and was highly disappointed.  They added extra tables in the bar area which made it more crowded and louder.  Although we were seated in the regular dinner area, it was extremely loud and hard to converse.  The worst part was the food.  We all upgraded to rib eye and filet mignon and all the steaks were dry and luke warm - WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT.  We paid a lot of money and got poor quality meat.  They may have been rushing because of the amount of people they had but they should not jeopardize the quality of the food just to serve more people.

I have been dining at Steak N Strin since I was a toddler with my parents and family. I continue to dine here with my husband and son for special occasions or at least every three weeks just because we just love it here.
We are never disappointed. The filet mignon, lobster, and king crab legs are just some of my favorites.

Another great meal to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We've been going to Steak N Stein for over 25 years and have never been disappointed in the quality and quantity of food served. One of the last truly great restaurants.

Went with the wife and two kids (19 & 16). My wife and son had the prime rib and my son and myself had the rib eye. We got a normal salad (nothing special) and a cabbage salad (different, but good). Food arrived with the rib eyes on a grill brought to the table. This was a very nice touch. The baked potatoes were huge and the waiter prepared them right in front of us (with choices of sour cream, chives, butter, and cheese sauce. I selected the butter with the cheese sauce. It was awesome. Steaks were cooked to perfection and mine had a light seasoning on it. No A1 needed. Prime ribs were 20oz, and could not be finished. Service was excellent in that we never had to ask for more water. We had a great time and will go back.

I made the reservations for 6 at the last minute and they took the reservation and seated us on time. Half of our group had the Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas and the other half ordered off the menu. The food was delicious and we had a great waiter who was very friendly and helpful. The only bad thing is the decor, so dark and old school. They definitely need to do an upgrade to the inside to make people feel more comfortable, but other that that no other issues.
