Our waiter could have been a little move attentive. Had to wave him down twice for service, and it wasn't crazy busy. I would have understood is it would have been busy. The food was great. We had a wonderful dinner date.

Very busy this particular evening. Accommodating far too many large parties with not enough staff to go around (the dining room was uncomfortably over crowded with portable tables set up ). As a result, drinks from bar were slow in coming and staff was very rushed. Was not as enjoyable as it has been in the past.

Me and 2 of my girl friends and I went for ladies night and sat at the bar for happy hour. The drinks were strong like always. We got the half off appitizers which were delicious. Service from the waiters to take our orders was a bit slow but the servers bringing the food was super quick. We ordered two steak medallion specials that were delicious. The sides were thecreamed corn which hands down is the best I ever had,twice baked potato, and rice pilaf. The rice pilaf was so bland and under cooked I couldn’t eat it. We also got salads which were to die for. Overall I would be back for sure cuz Damon’s is one of those places that is fun and you always come back to.

Don't sit in the Tiki Room unless you want to lose your mind from the noise level.
It may not be the usual, but there was a large party in there having a great time. Good for them, for sure, but it hindered our enjoyment just a bit.

Three of us went for the traditional Thanksgiving feast - fixed price at about $27.00 . Drinks were really strong. We only needed one drink to get into the holiday spirit. Hot garlic bread is worth the extra cost. YUMMY! We had so much food we took some home. We’ll be back next year. (Parking at the Orange Street parking structure is only $1.00)

Awesome restaurant! Drove over an hour to get there. The decor is early tiki with a big aquarium in the middle of the dining room. Our server who has been there 25 years was friendly and made some recommendations (get the house dressing on the salad). The prime rib was very flavorable and cook to perfection. The blackened rib eye had a nice kick to it. This is definitely a place to visit in Glendale. We'll be back!

Excellent service by Hillary. Meals were good - my steak was not quite as good as the last time we were here. Cooked well but not as good as cut as previously. Probably just the meat, a little gamey.

I want to say a special thank you to the hostess. After juggling tables while trying to get seated, she gave us a desirable table for our group. The restaurant was very crowded, and at first we were seated in very undesirable tables for our group, especially since we asked for a quieter table due to hearing issues of some of our guests. Anyways, the hostess was willing to give us a nice quiet corner booth, and we really appreciated that, and it made our experience there much more enjoyable. When making your table reservation, you may want to be specific as to what kind of table you need, as this restaurant is very lively and noisy at dinner time.

This was my first visit . A friend recommended it because I was looking for a steak restaurant that was not super expensive or stuffy atmosphere. Damon’s is casual atmosphere. We all ordered steak and they were decent. Ordered 2 different cocktails. The “famous mai tai was less than average, mostly orange juice. The monkeys uncle was better. Spent about $275 for 5 people with drinks and appetizers. Was ok but wouldn’t go out of my way to go back.

The restaurant has been in business since the late '30s and it's easy to see why. The Tiki theme is fantastic, the throwback ambience is genuine not hipster or ironic. The tropical drinks are strong and flavorful. Our server was an absolute gem -- friendly, knowledgeable, fun-loving and gave us great suggestions. Food was very good, highly caloric, high carbs, and served promptly, even though the place was packed wall-to-wall. Terrific garlic bread and twice-baked potatoes. Crowd the night we went was all ages, all types, and high energy. We had a great time and can't wait to go back. Loved it.

We dine here whenever we are in the area and have always enjoyed the food. Dinner was great! My husband and I both ordered the Beef Filet Tenderloin along with their twice baked potato. The Beef Tenderloin was excellent. It was perfectly prepared; very tender and great flavor. The twice baked potato and the salad with their house dressing was very good as usual. Service was very attentive and friendly.

This was my first visit to Damon's, though it has been there since 1937. And, it appears that nothing has changed since then -- decor, menu, drinks. It's called a steakhouse, but it looks like a South Seas restaurant. Tiki and such everywhere and the drink list consists of mai tais and all those other cocktails that I grew up with 50 years ago. The food offerings consisted of steaks, prime rib, chicken, fish and pork ribs, of which I had a half-slab. The best, no, but very good. Dinners come with two sides of your choice (mac 'n cheese was quite good) plus soup or salad to start. With all that food, prices are moderate. Service was excellent; it's a good choice when going to the Alex Theater.
