We have been there before and it wasn't so loud but Saturday, was so loud we couldn't hear each other. His pork was undercooked and it took a while to get another hot plate to cook the inner pieces. Cottage fries were amazing, and my bass was very good and the oysters were the best!

It’s a BYO. Repeat, it’s a BYO. Yes, a BYO steakhouse (????). Never heard of such a thing.

Unlike every other steakhouse on the planet, it empties out at 9 PM.

A little run down.

Steak cooked the right way though

Family style salad and onion rings included (plus BYO) so a decent value.

40 minute ride for me though. I shan’t be back. I’ll stick with Roots, Ruth’s Chris.

If you live 10 mins away, give it s shot.

Excellent meal again! Nick our server was great. Everything from the Oysters to the bone in filet and sirloin were superb. The schlag is a great way to finish. BYOB makes it even better. Great neighborhood steakhouse.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
