Steak
Certified Executive Chef Ron Killen has returned to his home town after training at Le Cordon Bleu and honing his culinary skills throughout the U.S. Our hand-cut steaks are cooked to perfection on a state of the art infrared broiling system that seals in the natural juices of the steak, creating a one of a kind “melt in your mouth” experience. All of our food is prepared fresh daily, using only the finest produce and freshest ingredients. Even our sinfully rich desserts are homemade and the only thing frozen in our kitchen is the ice cream! Come in and see what the whole country is talking about!

A great place for a great steak. Sadly there selection is limited right now with only 1 dry aged cut but everything they did have was great. No problem with distancing from other patrons. All in all everything was wonderful considering the current circumstances.

My wife and I love this Steakhouse. The U10 scallops and Cabbasi Wygyu steak is incredible. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about bourbon. Top notch establishment!

Outstanding as always. Their steaks melt in your mouth. All of their sides are delicious, but the must-have are the au gratin potatoes. I could eat a terrine of those all to myself.

Ended the school year with a celebration of my kids' work and studies. We understood that the COVD19 have affected the restaurants significantly and we were prepared for it. Tables were spaced out and menu was limited. However, the food was excellent and made up for the mandatory changes. Killen's always has had my favorite crab cake and they didn't disappoint. My kids enjoyed the breaded jumbo asparagus and the kurobuta pork belly. Service was excellent and on point. Each employee made sure you were comfortable and used extra caution with masks and distancing. Thank you Killen's for an excellent evening!

Best steak. Beat crab cake. This was our first time having the scallops, they were cooked perfectly, and the potatoes that were served with them complemented them perfectly. The corn is always amazing, and the macaroni and cheese was also excellent. We love Killens.

First post lockdown dinning experience. Food was good as you would expect for the price point. Our waiter was wearing a mask that didn’t cover his nose so why bother. All the staff had gloves on but never saw the change so wearing the same gloves table to table isn’t helping. Better solution would be have hand sanitizer at each table and have visit it first.

Excellent food and service. This was our first foray dining out after re-opening from the stay at home orders. Every employee was masked and gloved, and tables were spaced well apart. We felt very comfortable from an atmosphere perspective. The food and service were top notch as always. Can’t wait to return.

They were super diligent re: table social distancing, sanitizing, wearing masks and gloves. We kinda of liked the tables being spaced apart actually! The food was excellent and so was our waiter, Nathan. We enjoyed picking Killens for our first night out in 2 months!

We love Killen’s Steakhouse, we were fortunate to go over for the very first time on our 10th anniversary and we’ve been going there ever since. We celebrated our 16th anniversary this year and the ambience and the staff could not be any better. We have never had a bad meal at this place and will always recommend it.

It is always a treat to visit here.
Given the past six weeks, it was an even more delightful night of dining out again. It’s like spending time with an old friend. Dan was superb, as well as the delicious food we’ve missed.
We are so glad to enjoy one of our favorite places again. Thank you!!

We went out to celebrate our 27th anniversary as soon as the restaurants opened for business. We were excited to be out, yet we’re all too aware that restaurants had been closed and may not be back up to par and ready for business. All of the staff were practicing good social distancing technique and we felt safe throughout the dinner. However, there were a few disappointing moments to the evening which we felt could’ve been avoided by this high-end restaurant that had been waiting to re-open. Never once was our anniversary acknowledged (even though it was mentioned in our Opentable booking), we were served our dinner before our salads (waitress had forgotten salads) so we cancelled the salads, and one of the items on the menu was not available for our 7:00 dinner and the waitress was not informed (she probably should’ve been told before 7:00 which is pretty early), and my husband’s NY strip was not good at all.

We eat out a lot and don’t mind spending money on food and wine. I would’ve ex pie cited a restaurant of this caliber to be super ready for business again. For the prices they charge, I expected a much better meal and SOME acknowledgement of the special occasion we were celebrating. May not go back or would have to think hard about doing so.

In all honesty, the dinner at Killen's Steakhouse on Friday night was therapeutic. To be able to get out of the house and enjoy the act of sitting down in a restaurant, enjoying amazing service, time with friends and an absolutely taste bud exploding meal was exactly what everyone needed!
Thank you Ronnie for the exceptional evening and please make sure Vanessa is recognized for the impeccable service she provide the entire evening. 🤙💙🤙💙

Excellent food. The lobster mac and cheese isn't all that big of a deal for $22. I've had much better in other places. However, the steak and cream corn were insanely good.
