Cousino’s Steakhouse combines dining in casual elegance with the comfort of being in a familiar place. We have been perfecting our menu since 1945 and, while we’ve updated our look, the basics are still the same. We still believe the only way to cook a steak is over an open flame, meal time is family time, and only the freshest ingredients will do. Our warm, friendly atmosphere welcomes back generation after generation, and our fantastic menu never disappoints. Choose from our lighter fare of scrumptious soups, salads, and sandwiches or indulge in our flavorful, juicy signature steaks and chops, deliciously prepared seafood entrees, or a variety of delightful poultry offerings. Our delicious food made us famous, but it’s our unparalleled service that has kept the crowds coming for more than 50 years. When you dine at Cousino’s Steakhouse, you have the feeling that you are surrounded by family. An East Toledo landmark for over half a century.

So the service here was fantastic. The waitress was very kinda and attentive. That was excellent. But the food, I ordered a porterhouse and it was awful. It tasted like the girl, which usually would be a good thing, however it was burnt to a crisp and I could taste it, not even steak sauce could cover the flavor. This is not how a medium steak should be prepared. And the side, some potatoe cassarole, was more like baby food then something expected with their most expensive steak. Over all I give them a 2/10 and probably will never return.

absolutely the worst, out of items, severed the food rare 3 times and gave up, did not eat,
others food was char-coaled, way over done, and another 's steak was barely warm. It seems the only difference between the smaller steak and larger steak is the amount of gristle and fat left on it. You pay extra for fat and gristle.

Old school restaurant with good food. Definitely worth putting on a restaurant rotation if you love in Toledo.

We were visiting with a dear friend who recently lost their spouse. Initially it was a lovely visit, but then 12 elderly men were seated at a table right by ours. They were very loud, rowdy and distracting, ruining our conversation because we had to shout to hear each other. There should be a room for groups of that size, so the other diner's visit is not disrupted. The food special we all had was very good, but we had to keep asking the waitress for things, including plates for our dinner rolls, more water, etc. She was not attentive at all.

Its been a while since i've been to Cousino's for dinner but we thought we would give it a try. We were greeted warmly and seated in the dinning room. The waitress was very prompt to come over and take our drink order which I had to change my choice of wine since they did not have it anymore even though it was on the cocktail/ appetizer menu. I did mention to her that the cocktail/ appetizer menu should be updated and that they looked a little worse for wear. Once we made cocktail choices it was on to a couple Appetizers and I do have to say the French Onion Soup was very good but my dad order Escargot to find out they were out, really on a Saturday night?, so he ordered the shrimp cocktail which turned out to be a good choice . The shrimp were big and were a meal in its self plus the cocktail sauce had a great horseradish bite to it. We then ordered our dinners which consisted of two 16oz prime rib and a Perch dinner. The perch was excellent and even thought the prime rib was very good tasting I did not think it was a "melt in your mouth prime" but I would order it again because they do give you a generous cut. It looked bigger than 16oz when they brought it to the table and I ended up taking half of it home which is good with me :) Also I wanted to add that we ordered some broccoli to share and it was cooked perfectly too.
Even though I feel they could update or change a few things at there establishment they still serve a very good dinner and I would definitely keep them on my ""going out to dinner choice's"

Met friends fir dinner st this restaurant because it was close for them. Have not been at this restaurant in 20 years and if the good Lord is willing and the creek don't rise, it will be another 20 years before I go back. It's an inexpensive steak house that has been in the area for 50 plus years whose specialty is or was sirloin. Okay place but for a very good steak there are better options.
