Always a great time here. Best steaks around, and they never rush you out the door.
Highly recommended ! ! !

First thing is the food was amazing, from the perfectly prepared steak to the fish. The sides were large enough to share and everything came out piping hot. All the staff were right on top of taking care of your needs almost before you thought of it. We will be back.

The complimentary bread and salad is AMAZING; you don't need to order an appetizer! We ordered the steak for three and there was plenty left over, including the complimentary fried onions! We had mango sorbet for dessert (it was way too much for one person). Service was a bit slower, but it was a busy, busy night.

We were placed at the table by the door and main entrance window which was very uncomfortable seating. The steaks came out on plates filled with grease. The wait staff was inconsistent- we spent quite some time waiting for our check. The volume was so loud it was almost impossible to have a conversation. City prices for supermarket meat, aren’t you embarrassed..?

I'm a frequent Wayne Steakhouse guest and have loved them since they opened years ago. It was like having a local Peter Luger's. The service is great. It is the authentic NY/NJ Steakhouse. It's location in Wayne isn't the best but the food and service was always exceptional.

Although the service was still great, the food fell below expectations during my last visit. My steak tasted under seasoned and everyone at my table agreed. It just didn't pack the punch of flavor it usually does. Also, it was surprisingly empty for a Sunday. I hadn't been to the restaurant in probably a year.

For the premium price you pay, you expect your steak to be exceptional. It usually is but this time it wasn't. I hope they aren't suffering from lack of business. They are still the best steakhouse in the area in my opinion. I think they suffer from a bad location. I wish they would move to the heart of Wayne where they could become a staple of the community.

I'm still a fan and will return, I just hope that evening was a hiccup.

Ridiculous over booking. We had a 7:30. Arrived at 7:30 to find there were people still waiting to be seated for their 6:30 reservation!!! Needless to say, this is the third time this has happened!! WTH 😶. They know how to take reservations, but good luck sitting down on time. Too damn bad because the food is excellent

I go to Wayne Steakhouse very often. The food is always excellent. However this evening a quiet night, all the wines glasses on the table were filthy and had finger print makes on them. 3 of 6 plates were also dirty. I was ready to walk out....When the steak for 4 came none of my friends said a word....neither did I. The steak was CHEWY!.....There was no way this steak was a prime dry aged! I know my steaks and Wayne's SH steak very well. The tasted like a regular steak one could find anywhere. We also had a Birthday for one fellow and the waiter had the nerve to charge us for a piece of cheesecake?....I am really contemplating taking this restaurant off my list as I tried contacting the owner and she never returned my call. Much different from my other reviews.

We had a 7:30 reservation and didn’t get seated until 8:20, apparently this is a common occurrence so be prepared. Service (once seated) was great, appetizer phenomenal, and the steak for two was awesome.

Great porterhouse, done to perfection, excellent but pricey lobster tail add on. All items

clams, broccoli rabe salad and onion rings all great.

Excellent wait staff and BYO what can be better. Great quality and large portions very

reasonable, not inexpensive but well worth the money.

First time here!!! Loved the atmosphere!
Thought it was great, 6 of us went my husband was the only one that didn’t love his steak, he said it was very salty
But everyone else really enjoyed it. I had the filet mignon on the bone 20 oz my daughter had the 16 oz hers was bigger. I think the bone weighed to much! Waiter said it was better flavor on the bone but I had some of my daughters and it was just as tasty! Everyone else had the ribeye and loved it. Don’t get me wrong mine was delicious , but I wish I got the 16 oz. the steaks were cooked to perfection. Missed the bernaise sauce. They don’t have that here. But will def be back. Great local place only 10 min from home! Can’t beat that!!

Great steak, I had the rib eye cut. My wife had the tomahawk rib eye, to mush fat,a little disappointing. The complementry house salad was very good. I also had clams on the half shell, fresh and tasty. Garlic mashed potatoes were excellent,so was the cream spinach. The sauteed mushrooms were tasteless. Complementry onion rings come with your steak order, although we had to remind our server before he brought them. We went on a Friday night, not to crowded, yet still noisey. We made a reservation.

We had made a reservation a few days before, but there really wasn't much in the way of a tracking system in the restaurant. Not much in the way of a host/hostess to seat people, and it still took us a while to get seated. Part of this is really that the restaurant probably needs 30-50% more space and maybe a little more staff as well as they really didn't have enough people to accomodate a very large crowd. I'd also add that parking was dicey. All that said, the food was amazing. Typical steakhouse fare - different cuts of beef and a couple of fish entrees, various shellfish appetizers, and typical sides and desserts. The steak quality was truly fantastic, and being BYO kept the cost down. Great overall experience!

We had a 7 pm reservation and they did not seat us until 8:30! Why make a reservation if your unable to accommodate. We were a party of four. The food was good and our waiter was excellent but I don’t think I would go back again just because of the long wait time when a reservation was made. Ridiculous!!

Steak was excellent. Loved that a delicious salad, bread and onion rings were included with the meal. Too full for desert (probably shouldn't have ordered an appetizer) but they gave us delicious schlage with 2 strawberries. So full from dinner but ate the schlage.

Food was very good, but service was not. We waited much too long for our first courses and then watched while people who came in after us were served their appetizers AND main courses before we got ours. Not a good choice for a Saturday night.
