Hall’s restaurants have been a Fort Wayne staple for decades. The Gas House used to be the place to go to celebrate special occasions. However, our recent experience was telling of how far food quality and presentation have been on a steady decline. My family and I were there to support Savor Fort Wayne. We all enjoyed our appetizers. When our main entrees arrived, the chicken was without color as though it had been sous vided sans browning. It was barely done. Dessert was without any color or attempt at presentation. Just a slice of cream-colored cheesecake served on its side on a white plate….And, the women’s restroom up front-no toilet paper holders, toilet paper on the floor, hooks to hang coats/purses missing. So not the Hall’s of the past…One could blame Covid however, this decline is not new…A little detail goes a long way to an amazing experience that one would want to have again.

Server was awesome. Some of the food appetizers were a bit on the cool side but it was Savor Fort Wayne so it was understandable. Filet mignon and seafood risotto were delicious! Our server handmaiden our blue cheese olives for our martinis! Great service!

It was lovely as always. My boyfriend and I went for our three year anniversary and they were wonderful to us. Had a couple drinks from the bar that were perfect. And my filet was cooked exactly how I wanted it. 10/10 recommend

Went out for New Years Eve, and with having five kids it was great to get a couple hours without the kids. We got sat in an overflow room, in a corner, so I got to look at a maroon wall for the entire dinner. Would have appreciated a better seating option with having reservations. Not my first time here, the food was good but the seating could have been better. Also please figure out crème brûlée to go!

The waitress was very nice and helpful. We were seated in a more private area, so that made our evening more special. We ordered fillet mignon, stuffed chicken breast, blackened cod, and shrimp. The asparagus was a wonderful side dish. The bread that came with our salads is the best bread found anywhere! Everything was tasty and delicious!

Just in town for one night. We eat at a LOT of really nice steakhouses and…..the food was very good. The service was amazing and everyone, at least our crew, had a smile on their face. The bread was SPECTACULAR….wish I had some now. Prices were amazing. I would definitely go again. Wish I would have looked at the wine list - but I brought my own. Thanks Gas House!!!

We had made reservation on Open Table 5 days out and when we arrived the restaurant couldn’t locate. They eventually found it. Someone mentioned to the waitress to put us in the back - I felt as though we were thrown in to the back room in front of the doors and it was freezing for both me and my daughter. The service was very kind and courteous but I did hear the servers telling everyone they had other parties coming in so they were limited on time? Not sure if they had reservations as well but we felt rushed out and as soon as we were up they were pushing tables together. Wasn’t a very pleasant experience for me and my daughter

It would have been normally quiet as in every lunch I reserve in a booth in the bar. It is a great place for a business meeting. However a woman at the bar (who may have been an employee off duty) continued to drink alcohol for over an hour, get a cup and pour her own coffee and talk for over 20 minutes in a very loud voice on her phone. She continued to sit at the bar but do a number of stretching exercises even stretching back to touch the side of the booth behind her.

It was far from conducive to a comfortable lunch for those of us around her. I felt sorry for the wait staff as what could they do to ease the situation - I'm sure there are no answers in today's culture for dealing with it.

Decided to give this place a try for a date night. We we not disappointed. The service was fast and friendly, the food was fresh and amazing (we got two salads, New York strips, mashed potatoes, and some drinks.). Oh, and the bread…🤤 Prices are very reasonable for the portions. We would definitely go back again.

Very old fashioned place. Locals go here for the full plates of food! We found it on Open Table and decided to give it a try. Service seemed a little overwhelmed with our group of 5… she wasn’t too attentive but we
Enjoyed our food overall. Steaks were prepared to our liking.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. The food is delicious and the prices are so very reasonable. Sometimes the dining room music is too loud but the bar booths are always far more quiet, especially at lunch time. I have always had friendly servers who check back often to see if our table has needs.

The Gas House is my "go to" for a lunch meeting!

Longer wait but they were busy. The AC was not working on the building and it made the entire anniversary experience less than fair. :(

They didn’t even off a discount/ free something for the inconvenience. A little upset they did t acknowledge the AC issue.

This is a great dinner restaurant especially out on the deck the food was reasonable for today’s prices and quite flavorful. Service from the bar and at the table was exceptional. Great place for a special occasion as we were there for our anniversary. The salmon was generous and very well done. The Delmonico Steak could’ve been closer to medium but dusted and grilled well. We especially enjoyed the clam chowder. The German Chocolate Cake for dessert was over the top.

Our waiter was very nice. However, she had too many tables assigned to her and was too stretched. The entrees came to the table before we were half finished with our salads. And are medium-rare steaks were over cooked….more like well-done. Sorry to have to write this.

There was no parking which caused several morons to park in the lanes making it difficult to traverse the lot at all. The table where we sat had a lovely view of the bathroom entrances which was odd. The bar was behind, but did manage to finally catch up and start getting our drinks out faster than 10 minutes. The food was excellent, but inconsistent, the delmonico cut my wife was much better than mine which was full of gristle and fat. Overall, for this current atmosphere with limits on staff it was very good! Will highly consider going again when not a weekend.
