Hunter Steakhouse - Mission Valley
For a Steakhouse, prices were quite reasonable and there were lots of choices. Portions were generous and food was tasty. The service was attentive. A special feature is that salads are made to order right at your table. You tell them which ingredients you want.
Very disappointing food quality and marginal service. Prime Rib and Steaks over cooked for what was ordered.
I had been to Hunter in the past and thought the food was good but it seems like it has gone downhill. They overcooked my steak so I sent it back, the shrimp cocktail tasted a little fishy and the lobster was just ok... The steak seems like it was grilled on a George Foreman or panini press... I could have done better at home for a lot less.
Pricey for what you get but the service is good...
We ordered the prime rib and it was great! So lean and tender. The salad bar at the table was great. The pricing is very moderate for the wonderful meal.
We are regulars!
Great food and service!
Thanks to all!
Greeters, Kirk, Todd, Gonzalo, Ozzy, and cooks ,rest of the staff! Exceptional service!
I have had better experiences. The server was very personable but she talked a little too much. She spent a lot of time at tables but it caused my food to be cold so I had to send it back. Other than that. It was good.
Riley was amazing!
I visit San Diego monthly and I found this place earlier this year. Due to the food, service and ambiance, I found this place as a must on each of my visit. The most recent visit was most impressive. My partner ordered the halibut, which did not appeal to her senses when it came to the table. The waitress immediately put another order in for her and all was well. I look forward to my next visit. Thank you.
Food was good but not great. Steak was cooked well but brought wrong side dish and brought correct side well into the meal. Overall ok but would probably not repeat.
Sevice and food were great
Were there for a birthday and were put in the corner of the back room that seemed to be for meetings. No muzak or music. Very quiet and boring atmosphere. Food was good and service was great.
It was a lucky night for our anniversary. We used open table to make reservations which was very easy. Next when we arrived we found it was Restaurant Week. They had $20, $30, and $40 complete meals including dessert. Excellent is all I can say. The prime rib was mouth watering and the carrot cake was yummy. Everything went great as usual. We have not been disappointed at Hunter's Steakhouse for all the long years we been coming here. Their food prices are well within everyone's price range. Again thanks to Open Table reservations tool for making it easier to get a table.
Potato skins and bbq ribs were yummy.
Table side salad was awesome.
Salmon was moist and just good.
Carrot cake was dry.
Chocolate cake was rich and tasty.
Scooter our server was attentive and made sure we had an excellent time. We will be back
1st timer, very friendly servers, who checked in on me often. Food was good, prime rib was correct temp. Cleanliness was my issue. What I could see can be fixed for under $100 and in about an hour. made me wonder what the kitchen looked like, never visited the rest room. But overall nice place
Came from Windsor Ontario Canada and had researched for a good steak house. Not disappointed
Prime rib was excellent
Our waitress was amazing, the place is very accommodating, the food was good excellent. The only thing I would recommend is the steak get it medium rare. Beef bones were amazing, along with the salmon
I went with business associates. The food was good. It was San Diego Restaurant so the restaurant was busy. Service was pretty good.but our waiter was very busy, so it took a while at times to get his attention.
Coming here for Restaurant Week was great. This was our second restaurant week experience here, and the service and food has always been on point. Even though our server said it was his first RW experience and had only been working there for about a month, he was professional, friendly, and just wonderful. He was timely and kept our table informed of when the next entree will be coming. Great food and excellent service. The parking lot gets filled, but the available street parking isn't bad.
I came to Hunter's to compare the prime rib against Bullys. I must say the seaoning at Hunter's was much better and overall better than Bullys.
Everyone from the Greeters
To the table helper(ozzy)
Especially Kirk our waiter
And the Manager are Super Exceptional
MANY THANKS AND GOD BLESS!

And Family, Friends
The place is old and tired!
Three of our 4-person party were celebrating birthdays. We were seated at a HUGE table where there was room not only for all the plates, glasses, etc. but also bags filled with birthday goodies. Three of the four chose prime rib; cooked to perfection and large portions so that everyone had goodies left to take home. The 4th chose the Flame-Broiled Salmon, said it was the best she had ever eaten, and cleaned her plate.
Our nice waiter, on learning that it was a birthday celebration, presented us with slices of delicious chocolate cake with a yummy frosting and lit candle! All of us enjoyed wishing each other good wishes and blowing out those candles :)
My husband and I, over the years, have celebrated many special occasions going back to the "bear in cage" of The Hungry Hunter. We have spent birthdays and anniversaries at this wonderful place, and enjoyed each visit. This time was no exception. Our wonderful waiter and, in fact, all the wait staff, made it an even more special time and we are heartily grateful. (We will be back!)
Food was great
Host was pleasant
Blood-rare prime rib as ordered! Unique and plentiful salad bar brought to the table for you to choose some or all of many toppings.
Great Prime Rib. Nice wine selection. It is a little dark for my taste - but some people like that.
LOVED the table side salad bar wheel.
There's a reason they've been open since 1970...I go at least twice a month, no matter what you're going to order for an entree...get the Lamb Chop appetizer...they melt in your mouth...
Excellent service and food is always superior!!
Very good food. A little expensive but not bad for a steak house
We had the hunter cut prime rib, it was delicious! I had the table side salad which I loved. Service was good and they even brought us a cake to share knowing we were celebrating something. We will be going back!
Compared to the times we have eaten there for dinner, I was disappointed. I had to send my prime rib back because it was too done and even when I got it again, it was kind of dry. The potato was excellent. The ahi salad was good except for the dressing. A ginger dressing would have been more complementary to it.
Hood food and service. No complaints. Rib eye and filet were great.
I had been to this location on numerous visits to San Diego. The food was always good in the past, as was the service. I was looking forward to a great meal before dropping my daughter off at college. However, on this last visit, we were seated 20 minutes after our reservation, while the hostess pretended to be busy wiping down menus. Our waiter appeared to want to be anywhere but at work. The food was terrible. It was nothing like it had been on prior visits. We sent back a foul drink after taking just 1 sip, and then we were charged for it! I have no idea what went wrong on this visit, but there are too many great restaurants in San Diego, that I won't be returning to this one. Such a disappointment.
Service was quite good and our food arrived hot and just as we ordered it. They were having a 4 course special which was plenty of food for the price.
I really enjoy this place. It’s a great place to take the family and we all agree it’s the best prime rib we’ve ever had. It’s not fancy, but comfortable and clean. The service has been outstanding every time I’ve gone. If someone at your table gets prime rib, and is willing to share, the lamb chops were very tasty too. The au gratin potatoes are my favorite side and the table side salad is fun too. The desserts are just ok, so don’t worry about saving room.
Solid choice. Great waitress and bussers. Good food.
Very good service, the salad is also recommendable but the filet mignon was average.
Meat is excellent, specially prime rib, honest price.
All of our meals were excellent flavor. Service was excellent. Loved the tableside salad bar
