Steakhouse
In 1940, Adele and Ellis Ferris determined to share their hospitality with more than their family and friends. they wanted to reach out to serve the Cleveland community that had welcomed them with open arms. Adele and Ellis wanted to create a legacy for their children, grandchildren, and generations that would follow that would bring them pride all their days.
Starting out in Cleveland on Detroit Rd. Ferris Steak House became a favorite dining place for people from all across the city and outlying suburbs.
The Award-Winning Ferris Steak House continues to serve the highest quality steaks and chops available in Cleveland, with genuine warmth and friendly, prompt service. For many, Ferris Steak House has been the one restaurant where generations of the same family have dined. Where your grandparents or parents had their first date and where you may have yours.

    Nice place for an evening out. Not too fancy though prices are high for food and service given. Wine list was poor. Steaks were good and shrimp were large. Coffee and chocolate mousse cake saved the evening. Probably won’t go back.

    I decided to try this restaurant which was close to where my brother lived to celebrate his birthday. We arrived around 5:00 pm where we enjoyed delicious appetizers and drinks. These Happy Hour appetizers of potato skin skins and prime rib sliders were some of the best tasting appetizers I’ve had.

    It was just so so. Example someone ordered the special bacon wrapped filet a regular look steak came out when we said that is not what we ordered her actual response was to shrug her shoulders and say oh they must have changed it and set the plate down! Like um no if you don’t have what I ordered come back tell me and ask me what I want don’t just decide for me! The rest of the dinners were just not tasty don’t know how else to explain it light they actually tasted bad no idea you could mess up steaks that bad. This was a family dinner I am in town and took my grown children so it was bad but not to bad it would have been horrible if I went tonight for my company Christmas dinner which was booked for 10 and I am now scrambling to find a new place quickly - Maybe this place was good 10 years ago but not today

    We had a reso, got there and they had no table ready and would not for about 15 minutes. Asked if we would take a high top in the bar area. Initially, we did not but agreed. Sat for 15-20 minutes without a server approaching even though there were at least 6 that walked right past us without even an acknowledgement. And while the bartender did acknowledge us and asked if anyone had been to the table when we said no we assumed that they were discussing that with the hostess. Obviously, a sense of urgency or at least an attempt to rectify the situation was not there. Don't have open tables on this site if you are bogged down with a large party knowing full well seating will be limited.

    To start off the dining experience, the first cocktail of the night came over incorrectly. It was corrected and then we ordered dinner. Our dinner came and was not up to our liking. The server came back to check on experience and upon finding out we did not like one of our orders, she said “I wish I knew so I could have done something.” This was the first time she came to check on us after the food came out. Had she checked sooner, well, maybe she could have done something about it. And then she did not ask about dessert or if we wanted anything else. We were there for a birthday and would have like some cake or something else, but was not asked if we wanted anything. Not the Ferris Steakhouse that used to be on Detroit Road, back in the day.

    A little disappointment after reading the reviews. The restaurant is very crowded, tables close together and zero ambiance. Perhaps where we were seated was some of the problem right outside the kitchen access way. Served premade store bought rolls for the bread. Steak was cooked just right but not full of flavor. Best item was the baked potatoe.

    Place was super busy. We came For my moms birthday ... our waitress was a Sweetheart thank god for her . Salad was ok. Couldn't even choose an appetizer that sounded good... two of our steaks were god awful... tasted like what roadkill would taste like. No seasoning at alllll even butter . I sent mine back.. fiancé sent his back also... literally the WORST steak I have ever had in my entire life . I've had steaks at the best places and steaks from a dive bar lol and this was THE WORST... presentation was awful... masked potatoes were cold and just underwhelming. The baked potatoes were so blah. I just cannot get over how they can charge what they're charging for such awful food and presentation. It was the most bland, thrown together plates I've ever seen. Not to mention, their steak fries alone are 8.50.... Lol like what?! They cost more than a glass of wine ?! They don't have a kids menu... 7 of us including 2 kids was over $400... insane .. and that was after taking off the two filets ... I have never not liked a steak lol the taste was gamy. That's the best way to describe it. My sons chicken fingers and fries were $20... I will never return lol thankfully the cheesecake was good .. and the drinks were good. I am in total shock....
