Steakhouse
In the 20th century times were simpler, dining out was reasonable, the service was excellent and cooking was an art. My staff and I have tried to capture that ambiance of simple elegance. Our traditional values extend even further: There are no heat lamps or microwaves in our kitchen. Everything comes to your table straight from the broilers and ovens - good and hot - the way it used to be. ~Lisa West~

It was amazing that things have changed as they have due to the pandemic. The food and service were as they always have been. The starkness of the Restraunt was a shock but done well. I think they are dealing with all of this in the best way possible and the food quality has not suffered.

We had a wonderful time with great food and service! The steaks were delicious as well as the bacon-wrapped shrimp. The lemon drop martinis are to die for, so make sure you order one!

Absolutely outstanding! We are foodies and blessed to be able to eat at the finest steakhouses in the country on a regular basis. The Double Nickel doesn't take a back seat to any of them from coast to coast. From the appetizer through the dessert, all items are created in the kitchen from scratch and are simply outstanding. The steak is equal to, or better than a Del Frisco's, Morton's, Pappas Bros., Kirbys or Bob's Chop House. That's a bold statement I know but, trust this review, Double Nickel competes, start to finish, with all of those. The cleanliness of the restaurant is over the top. There is no doubt that the owner has OCD because there are no spots on the dinnerware and the bathrooms are spotless and the entire staff is adhering to the new rules plus adding a few of their own. The Manager will make at least two visits to your table, first visit after you sit down and another as you are eating. He is genuinely concerned about the customers and wants everything to be perfect. The servers are spot on, knowledgeable about the wine and food selection and will leave you impressed every time. Finally, we are Midland residents and we drive to Lubbock at least every other week for the sole purpose of dining at the Double Nickel and go straight back to the house in Midland. The Double Nickel is a gem sitting right out in the middle of West Texas, don't let this one slip out of your bucket list of places to dine.

I would have preferred to have had more space between our table and the other guests. Food tasty; not a generous portion and not for a clientele with a modest budget.

Was put in a side room that was very hot and didn't have the low light romantic feel of the main room. Sat us right next to the only other occupied table in the room, and it was so quiet that it was awkward to talk above a whisper. Waitress didn't know wine selections.

Just an overall bad and very pricey experience.

We are long-time customers and have always loved Double Nickel. We had a nice waiter, but the service was extremely slow. The steaks that were ordered were not cooked consistently. The shrimp tasted old and had somewhat of a smell. The salmon and salads, however, were very good.

The service was great and our server made sure we had everything we needed to the best of her ability.

There was no wine list due to Covid-19 restrictions the restaurant had in place, so the server gave us basically three recommended Cabernets. I would suggest putting the wine list on an iPAD or printing them like other fine steak houses are doing. Not having a wine list at an expensive steak house seems cheap to me and sets a tone for the rest of the meal if you are a wine enthusiast.

My wife ordered lobster bisque which appeared more like a lobster broth. There was no lobster meat chunks in this very small $9.00 cup.

I had the lobster tail which probably explains why there were no chunks in the bisque. They needed all they could muster for the little sliver of $50+ lobster tail I was given. The vegetables accompanying the lobster were broccoli and potatoes, good but I think a high end called restaurant could do better.

My wife and son had the filet mignon. My son's was cooked medium rare as ordered and he approved of the meal. My wife's steak was cooked medium and sent back with the explanation she ordered her steak medium rare. After the steak was returned it was cooked well and returned once again. Her final steak, which she ate alone, was good to her liking.

The manager was apologetic and gave us a free dessert, which by taste of the stale chocolate cake should be free anyway. Nothing to brag about chocolate cake slice which we did not finish. My son had the strawberry shortcake which looked like a better option. He stated it was really good.

Overall, I feel this steakhouse is over priced and certainly does not live up to the bar of most other steakhouses. I would say they are a better option than Texas Road House but a far cry from Capital Grill.

Simply the best! We are foodies and have eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world. As odd as it may seem, there is no need to go to Dallas or Houston when you can go to Lubbock and eat at the Double Nickel and partake of some of the finest food in the country.

We drive from Midland regularly just to eat and go right back home. The Manager is a class act and always takes time to talk with us and is genuinely concerned about our meal and our family.

To start the evening the staff was very courteous and professional. We were seated immediately, even though we were early for our reservation. We were waited on promptly and continually through out the meal. The food was outstanding, my wife has an allergy to gluten and the staff went above to ensure her meal was gluten free. She had roasted chicken with potatoes and cream corn. The chicken was moist and delicious and the sides were equally scrumptious. I had the 12 oz rib eye (medium), it was over cooked a tad almost medium well. The steak was still tender and juicy and had marvelous taste. My sides were the snow peas and cream corn and they were excellent. We split a piece of cheese cake desert and it was as good as homemade. This is the first time my wife has been to the Double Nickel, but it is now our go to establishment for our date nights. The atmosphere was cozy and quiet, we carried on a conversation and did not have to yell over excess noise. Go there for date night if you get the chance.

Everything was wonderful except the lack of a wine list due to COVID and the lack of knowledge of that wine list by the server, and his not being fully versed on the daily desserts offered. He was able to recommend a handful of wines, but the wine we ended up with was good but overpriced. And our favorite dessert was one of the daily's but we had to overhear another server to find out about it.

Also, only ONE Texas wine and none from any of the local wineries.
