Local Owners make you feel like your in their home for dinner ( well with 100 other people). Great food service and you can’t beat the value.

As a first timer food and drinks were good. Perfect weather to sit out in patio. Server took well care of us. Would highly recommend.

Our waitress was perfect unfortunately my ribs were dry and a little tough. Our drinks were pure alcohol and not consumable. The calamari was delicious and the pan fried walleye was good.

We just absolutely love dining at DC. The bartenders are so friendly and the food is fantastic. So glad that a Wisconsin restaurant owner came to Chandler so we can enjoy the same delicious food as we did in Wisconsin.

We visited the restaurant while on vacation based on recommendations from friends back home. We were not disappointed. The food was great and the people there made it even better. Chiudini at the bar was awesome. In fact I would say “magical”! Just ask for a light! The manager, Jeff, was fun, genuine, interesting and really informed about the area and the restaurant’s history. Our server Adrienna was awesome. Her recommendations were spot on and she was very attentive with a great sense of humor. They celebrated our anniversary with us like we were old friends.steaks perfectly cooked, an awesome wine selection and some entrees that will make you feel as if you are in Wisconsin instead of Phoenix! Enjoy.

The service was a little slow. The steaks were good, but the lobster mac and cheese was like soup. It is no steak 44, but for the price it is average.

Mom and I had lovely 5oz filets and Dad & my husband had the enormous and very tasty pork chops. I'm not a fan of overcooked spinach so I didn't eat it, but everything else was super! Kevin is a very kind, knowledgeable, patient server. We really enjoyed our evening...except for one minor incident.
I would love to give DC five stars on everything...but a server (not ours, a guy at the next table) elbowed me so hard in the back of my head it made my eyes water and ears ring. A solid apology would have made me laugh it off (and I did actually try to laugh it off in the moment), but his attitude was flippant. All he said was, "Oh it's tight quarters here, you're okay right?" No other mention of it. I was shocked. I mean, I'm not looking for a comped meal or anything but a nice apology for whacking me upside the head would have been nice. If you're thinking I'm being a baby...I'm not. I had a spectacular headache and still have a small lump on my head two days later. LOL Went out for a steak dinner, got beat up for it.

Nice atmosphere. Decor was great. Food was great. I enjoyed the location.

It was a little chilly which can make your food cold. I was the only thing cold at this time. Still enjoyed myself

We ordered the special which was halibut we learned not to order seafood in a steak restaurant. Our first piece was overcooked and the replacement was better but certainly not perfect We probably will not return.

Best steak I've ever eaten! Would have expected to pay twice that for the quality of the food. Excited to check out the new location next year!

Third time at DC Steak House. Second anniversary dinner there. Probably the last. Food was very good as usual. Service started out good but went down hill fast as the restaurant got busy, but not real busy, and our server was running from the outside, to the back of the bar and from two big parties to another while we waited for more drinks, desert and the check. When we went to pay with a VISA gift card, and after a short wait, we were told the DC Steak House is small business and doesn't take VISA gift cards because they take to long to process. Not impressed and very disappointed. Contacted management and never heard back.

We had a great 21st wedding anniversary dinner. So surprised to receive a nice dessert at the end. Great time. Will do it again. Loved the lobster Mac n cheese and the lobster mashed potatoes.

Terrible. They won’t give you your Open Table points if you eat at the bar. Spent north of $225 and they give you a cancelled reservation if you don’t sit in dining room that was empty. No one in the restaurant when we arrived. Absolutely inane reasoning. If you are an Open Table user like me for nearly 10 years go elsewhere. It wasn’t good enough to overlook. Never again.

We've lived close to downtown Chandler for 6 years and finally tried this place! I don't know why we didn't come sooner. This place was outstanding! The service was amazing, the ambiance was amazing, the drinks were amazing, and the food was amazing. We can't wait to go back!

Nice place that tries to be above the average, but unfortunately does not. We ordered salads and the special of the day for 2, Halibut and Prime Rib. The salads had a wedge of tomato 3 olives, a few croutons but no cheese, onions or other garnish, just the greens. I ordered the balsamic, and that is all it was, balsamic vinegar not a vinaigrette. No ingenuity or added effort to make the salad shine. My wife enjoyed the Halibut, but the Prime Rib had no flavor at all. I seemed like they did not use any spices or rubs at all so although it was a nice cut, it had little to no flavor. The Halibut special was $46 and although I did not eat or taste it, to me it was way over price. I would like to give it a second chance and I'm sure well go again: hopefully it will do better next time.
