always spot on the best steaks "if you like Peter Lugars this is practically the same"
Great meal. Always an excellent steak. Whenever my wife and I are in the mood for a great steak and want to travel locally, this place is at the top of our list. There are several steak houses in the area but this place gives you the local family feel with the NY quality meal. Definitely worth the trip.
Dad’s Birthday!!! Great food!!! BYOB!!!
This is my husband and my third time at Wayne Steakhouse and it does not disappoint. The waiter helped us figure out the right amount of steak for our party of four. The bread was served warm, the house salad was complementary as were the delicious onion rings. The steak's flavor and tenderness rival Peter Luger without having to pay for drinks (BYO) and paying in cash. Luckily we saved room for a slice of delightful chocolate cake for dessert.
Wonderful, excellent food and close to home. Will definitely make my way there again with my family.
Glad it was found money..otherwise not worth it. The food was excellent. The prices were outrageous. The staff were nice enough at first and seated us well and promptly. They even gave us a bucket and ice for our wines/beers when we asked for it. They don't clear dishes until the next course arrives. They checked in once during the meal. They never offered ANY dessert or coffee, even though there was a strawberry dessert supposedly included with every entree. The five waiters just hung out over at the dry bar until we flagged one down for our check. We gave them a standard tip, which in hindsight was way too high for their quality of service. We figure they don't care to work too hard because with such high prices they will get a good tip no matter what...
This restaurant is surely a diamond in the rough. The location is in a building with a pizza restaurant in the front and a billiard hall upstairs is very unsuspecting of the quality of service and food they provide. It is New York Steakhouse worthy and the prices are as well, except no traffic, tolls or parking costs. Surely a must try for anyone who enjoys a quality steak and all the terrific sides that come with it!
My husband has been wanting to go eat at the famous steak house called Peter Lugers in NY. But we have a newborn and two other small children so getting a sitter is tough. So we decided to come here, and we learned that the chef had previously worked at Peter Lugers. The steak was amazing and the onion rings with potatoes were phenomenal. Definitely going back more often... and now no need to go to NY!
Father’s Day dinner. Crowded table in the back, screaming children and shrewish wife next to us making all at adjacent tables uncomfortable but nothing was said. No bread plates. 3 of 4 napkins. Had to repeatedly ask for water. Brought the “family style” salad with blue cheese tho never advised there’d be blue cheese so 2 of 4 didn’t eat it. Steaks were underdone, tasteless, and precut (though we hadn’t been advised of that). Cottage fries swimming in oil. Creamed spinach cold. Restaurant and wait staff unkempt, not conducive to a good appetite. Tired, old decor. Dirty, stained menus. No one is managing this place well. Not worth the $200+ we paid for 3 (1 shared) entrees and 3 sides without drinks, appetizers or dessert. Total rip off.
We went with our son , daughter-in-law and their young children to celebrate Father’s Day on the Saturday night before. As usual, the food and service were wonderful. It was a little noisy but it really didn’t bother us. If you want excellent steak in New Jersey, this is the place to go. It’s Peter Lugers without the hassle of going to Brooklyn!
Made reservations for my son 15th birthday. Wanted to surprise him with some amazing juicy steak. But unfortunately the restaurant was closed due to a gas leak which no one reach out to me to keep me posted. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:30 pm. Surprisingly there was a note on the front door saying the restaurant is closed. Really like this place but definitely lacked of communication.
Steak was the best in this area. Very pricey. Disappointed that the steak doesn’t come with any sides and they run $10 each. Would recommend for folks with a fat wallet.
Great place to eat
They tried, but failed. Was way over priced for what you received. Our waiter was a very nice young man, but he wasn’t managed at all and often stood in back with his buddies and chatted. We waited over 45 mins for our main course. The place needs a good cleaning and sprucing up.
One of the worst dining experiences we've ever had. Felt like an amateurish operation from kitchen preparation to presentation to service. Never again.
Great steak perfectly cooked, easily enough for
2. Included salad and onion rings and BYO.
Great and friendly service, really a great place.
Went to Wayne Steakhouse for my birthday dinner - amazing as always!
This rivals Peter Luger's. The steaks were cooked to perfection. As were the sides. The creamed spinach was how we like it--more spinach than cream, and the mashed potatoes were satisfying. Glad we saved room for chocolate mousse cake and apple strudel.
Best Steak in Northern New Jersey - Always excellent quality!
Great food and atmosphere
Everything was excellent BUT the person who greeted us was exceptionally rude. He at first seated us at a table for 2 right by the main entrance, which was a TERRIBLE location. When we asked to be moved he rudely protested they had many reservations and could not give us a table for 4. This despite that there were others sitting at a table for 4 with only 2 occupants. AND, he never even asked for our name - yes, we did have a reservation. Excellent dinner, except for that part. Having eaten at both Peter Lugers in Brooklyn and here in Wayne - Wayne wins hands down!
Boyfriend and I had a nice dinner here, not crowded at all for a Friday night, service was good and steak was delicious.
We dined at Wayne Steak house Saturday evening. We were graciously greeted by the owner and promptly seated at our table. Service was perfect and our dinners were excellent. Wonderful night out!
Love it! Amazing food and service. Can't wait to go back.
Ate here about a year ago just as excellent. Great food and service. Anyone giving this place a bad review is a total snob! I will definitely return
Awesome meal and a BYO!!!
The food was excellent and the steaks we ordered were cooked perfectly. The family style salad and onion rings were nice accompaniments . The appetizers and sides were also very good , but were expensive. This is a BYOB and they will decant the wine if you ask. The ambiance is the only thing I would improve. When we got there at 7:30 pm on a Tuesday there was no one there, so we were seated promptly. This is my second time there and if I need to get an awesome steak, I will go here.
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.
Dinner was terrific as usual. Service was great although the restaurant was not packed on this particular night.
Great Lugers style STEAK. Great service. 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.
Good atmosphere. Great friendly service.
Steak was cooked perfectly.
Always a great meal here and enjoyable with friends and family
Seafood was good. Steak had no taste or flavor. Drove from central jersey heard steak was like Lugers but definitely note.
