Our server was the best server we have ever had. I have never been more impressed with a server. He was polite and prompt, and anticipated our needs. If only every trip could be like this one.

Overall the experience was good, one issue we experienced was with pacing, we had just gotten our salads when the rest of our meal showed up. The table wasn't big enough for all those plates and we weren't ready to move on. The person who brought out that food wasn't our server, but she seemed irritated that we asked her to keep the food warm in the kitchen, she did it anyway. One of our party had the coffee crusted steak which she gets regularly and loves, this time however she didn't. She said it wasn't terrible but that it was bland and had the texture and taste of a roast. Aside from that, food was good, drinks were good and atmosphere was as nice as always.

My family and I came for dinner for the first time this past weekend. It was my daughter's birthday. We were able to sit right next to a musician singing and playing guitar, very nice addition to our nice evening. Our waitress was wonderful, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was very festive. Will be coming back with friends and or family soon!

I took my wife to the Gas House for her birthday. It has always been a favorite of hers. The service, appetizer and entree were excellent. My wife and I both had the prime rib as that is her favorite as well.
Overall the dining experience was excellent, my only complaint would be the prime rib. I ordered the 10 ounce cut and a large portion of it was fat and remainder was rather gristly, my wife’s had a lot of fat as well, but hers was tender like prime rib should be. The prime rib entree has been better in the past.
We will always come back to the Gas House for dinner, it is the best!

The crab cake appetizer was fantastic. Told waitress we were going to an event and needed to served timely. She was able to accommodate our request. Meals were sub-par. Shrimp were very small and small portion, veggie was cold. Waitress forgot two sides for the table. She was told twice and still forgot one. Disappointed we have high expectations of this restaurant. Probably will choose a different place next time.

I'm a vegetarian and was assured that there was no meat in the meatless risotto, however there was some sausage in my meal, just a few pieces. So I have to wonder if they just pick out the sausage before serving it.

We had a fantastic experience! Loved the food, our seating was prime, and atmosphere was great! Price is very reasonable for what you get. Each course was right. Strong drinks for your dollar! Made a rare date night done right. Staff was great too. Can't wait to go back. Beats the heck out of the Don Hall's on State, too, in terms of quality and experience.

My wife and I are extremely busy during the week but we find time on the weekends to just enjoy each other. We have found that The Gas House located in Ft Wayne Indiana has always satisfied our {Date Night} and romantic time out. Their Lobster is to die for and so is their slow roasted prime rib. We have (never) had a bad meal or slow service here. !!! They have always been accommodating to our needs. I want to thank the Owners, Managers, and staff for their true efforts of what exceptional dining out is meant to be. We will continue to look forward to our next visit.

Everything was great, good food, great service, wonderful company and conversion with grandson and his date before he leaves for IU. Then they seated a table of 8 drunks from the deck. (The more you drink the louder you get.) I was happy it was the end of our meal and not the beginning; I would have had to ask for another table. I don't mind dropping $100. 00 for a great meal, but I don't want to listen to a bunch of drunks so that I can't have a conversation with people I care about. We left went somewhere else for dessert. Leave the drunks out on the deck. Mary

The food was just average due to the fact that the salmon was over cooked and dry. We requested the salmon to be gently cooked to maintain its moisture. The ordered french fries were served cold. Our table server did a excellent job in replacing the over cooked salmon immediately. The table service was excellent.

This was a disappointing experience due to the device levels. It seemed the staff was distracted for our entire experience--it took 15 minutes after ordering drinks for them to reach the table, the food was not quite warm when it arrived at the table, and the wait staff was mediocre at best. I've had much better dining experiences here so I know this isn't the norm. I'll try again at another time, but it won't be immediately.

While your food is very good, we sat at the table at 12:20 p.m. and did not have our food until 1:15 p.m.
Very noisy and chaotic. The restaurant looked understaff. When family with children look to spend some time together with a nice meal and order very simple entrees from the menu they should not wait for an hour.
