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.

    The food was good, the service was fair, the amount for the food was way overpriced, because of that we will not return.we purchased the special and was much higher then the menu of what we would have ordered. We were charged extra for the sauce for 18 dollars. The waiter stated this came with the special. The bacon was soggy and the rolls were dry.

    arrived with 5:15 reservations. We're regulars and were in no hurry. food wasn't ordered until 6:15 ish, worse, didn't arrive until nearly 7 and it wasn't particularly busy. Waitress indicated we were behind a table of eight, however, those eight were adjacent to us, and trickled in between 5:30 and 6:20, ?? We'll keep coming of course, one of our favorite places, but for the first time, something went sideways.

    Wait staff attentive but not intrusive. Food good but not spectacular. Alcoholic beverage light on the alcohol. Priced for special occasions (or market-priced in this pandemic, inflationary time)

    Been here a few times. Was disappointed in my food this time around. Got the special - Bacon Wrapped Steak? It was dry and tasteless. It was the special and didn't know the price when I ordered it (my fault). I was a bit taken aback when I saw how much it was. I will likely go back, but certainly won't be on the top of my list.

    Poor quality, thinly cut steak for which they charge $42.00. Grocery stores offer the same size/cut for $12. They should amend their name because it is not a steakhouse.

    Ferris is just ok. It doesn’t warrant any special praise. We were basically neglected by the wait staff and the food didn’t make up for it. Simple things like a wine and beverage menu was no where to be found, we had to ask and just received one of the two. There are so many better places -

    The one item have always come for and purchased was the prime rib king cut. The last 2 times it was far from being the mouth watering quality u always provided. It was not the degree of cooking either, it was or is the quality u are purchasing

    We were very disappointed with the Easter buffet. Limit choices which I initially liked figuring everything would be exceptional. It tasted like any other buffet food. The carved prime rib was totally inedible was raw and tough. Was not worth it!

    Paid over $120 for the Easter Buffet for 2 Adults and the fruit was still frozen, the bread and bakery items were stale, the Chicken was raw. We were sat at a very small table that was in the footpath of the kitchen and the door. The shrimp cocktail wasn't cleaned out and the meat was tough. Asked to speak with the manager who never presented themselves. The server was the bright spot of the experience and was kind and cool headed in an otherwise chaotic scene as reservation times were running into eachother and there were an excess of people and not enough room. Save your money.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️We were greeted nicely by the lovely hostesses who made us feel welcome. Our well experienced server Linda was excellent, friendly, professional and efficient. The food was fabulous! The salmon cake appetizer was yummy and the New England Clam Chowder was THE BEST I’d ever had…, so much so, and that we got some to go. The atmosphere was warm, cozy and pristine. Looking forward to our next visit. … soon!

    I invited two friends to join me for dinner at Farris. I ordered the 14 ounce Delmonico steak; both of my friends ordered the 12 ounce prime rib. My steak wasn’t even half the size promised. I had ordered it medium rare; it came medium well. To my surprise, It had obviously been fried! My friends prime rib was equally undersized. Moreover, although they had ordered it medium rare and medium, they were both medium well done. They were kind enough not to remark on the fact that they were served the equivalent of Ponderosa quality food at Morton’s prices. The service was very good, although the servers efforts at up selling were annoying for a white tablecloth restaurant. I had dined at the original Faris steakhouse dozens of times. The food was exceptional, the atmosphere was exceptional, the service was exceptional. The only thing exceptional about the new Ferris was that it was exceptionally disappointing.

    Our Waitress was outstanding, the food was ok the prime rib sliders we're great, I had chicken marsala just subpar, we also had the steak special was ok. Thank you. Oh yes the Wedge salad was excellent. We we're a little sad that the birthday of our son was not even mentioned and I wrote on opentable that we we're celebrating a birthday. The table across from us had a cake and candle brought to them for there birthday celebration, we did not.
