Food is always on point, just know what your ordering when it comes to the different steaks. The service was near perfect. It's just not a cheap outing.

Killen's never disappoints! Food was the usual...perfect! Salads, steaks, creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes were exceptional. Carrot cake dessert was as delicious as always. A new one we tried was the S'more ice cream! Wonderful! Service is always outstanding. Bryan was awesome!

Have dined at Killens many times (all Killen restaurants). We took friends to show off this great steak house. It wasn't great. Steaks were overcooked, waiter was unfriendly and a crying baby next to our table. I spent $455.92 for a bad meal.
The restaurant is cold and unfriendly. Nothing intimate about it at all. We have eaten here several times and in the past the food has been good, but the atmosphere has never been like the original restaurant.
I won't say we won't go back to Killens, but it won't be anytime soon.

Celebrated my husbands and nieces birthdays. Had a nice dinner. My niece and I got the wet aged ribeye and they were both a bit tough. The guys had a better cut and it was delicious.

We celebrate our anniversary at Killen's every year for a number of years now. This is the first poor experience we've ever had. We were the first customer in the door and first to be seated. Table for two and the hostess tried to seat us in the back of the restaurant at a table large enough to accommodate 8 people.

When they brought our drinks (Iced tea) it looked as though they ran the teabag past the glass very quickly and the tea appeared to be only slightly darker than the water in our glasses. The server was never able to provide a glass of tea that had any tea flavor to it.

My ribeye steak, although very tasty, was extremely tough. At these prices I would expect the steak to almost melt in my mouth.

In all the years we have been dining at Killen's this is the first time we had any experience of this nature. We are discussing our next visit and are considering trying one of the many other quality steak houses in the area.

I know that many places tend to make all kinds of excuses for why things are not up to the usual level of service but as a consumer, when we're paying the price for 'fine dining' we have come to expect things to be perfect every time. A restaurant such as this should never, ever put a tough piece of meat on the table for anyone. Had the restaurant been overly crowded I could perhaps overlook the lack of stellar service on the part of the hostess but when we arrived, there was not another guest seated anywhere in the house.

Hope this is not an indication of quality gone south. I'm hoping we just caught them on a bad day...

We come here about three times a year. This is the second time where we could hardly hear one another talking. It’s really loud. And, this was the first time the food was really salty. I don’t know what happened? New cook? Spilled the salt shaker? I don’t know but we couldn’t finish the steak.

Our waitress and all others attending our table were excellent. Very attentive and kind. Food was excellent. We just had one minor issue. Our reservation was for 5 pm. We walked in the door 2 minutes early. They refused to seat us and made us wait or go to the bar. The bar was not an option for us. So we just stood. The time it would have taken them to walk us across the restaurant to our table, it would have been 5. I understand if we had arrived extremely early and the table was not ready. No one was at our table and it was ready for us.

Once again, Killen's Steakhouse delivers! We've made it sort of a tradition to have Christmas Eve dinner there, and whenever possible, we request Randy as our server. Randy is knowledgeable and friendly - an excellent server. Our drinks were fantastic - even though I prefer a smoked old fashioned at a competitor, theirs is top-notch and a generous pour. Our entire meal, from the skewers to the steaks, sides and dessert, were fantastic. Killen's is a well-run place with excellent food, service and beverages.

Great experience taking my parents out for our annual Christmas dinner.

The service was amazing when some higher end restaurants are still struggling to recover from pandemic wait staff issues, everybody in the restaurant was enjoying themselves, and as always Killen’s is the only restaurant that can really rival Pappa’s as far as steak quality. I was surprised how great their appetizers were. The Ramen deviled eggs are genius.

The ambiance is not exactly the most traditional feeling which is subjective and not particularly a bad thing.

Overall, a great place for that special occasion. We’re planning on doing dinner with the parents again and doing it with the in-laws next year.

Killen's is our "go to" place for a night out. Our table was ready on time, the staff professional but fun and the food is outstanding. My husband says Killen's is the best steak in town! I don't eat meat, but the crab cake and the shrimp cocktail are fabulous!
