If I could give this restaurant more than five stars I absolutely would. I am from New England and never in my life have I had a meal quite as delicious as the Beef Connection. The owner is a hard working man who has taken the time to perfect his recipes and will tell you all about how he did... More

Beef Connection is an average steakhouse on the Westbank. The Filet was cooked perfectly, but the potatoes au gratin were bland. The decor could use some updating. But overall the food was ok. I've eaten here before and I'm sure at some point I'll eat here again.

The restaurant needed an update about 15 years ago. The steaks are below par with quality steakhouses and the sides are woefully average. Go to O'Briens, down the street to learn what a really good restaurant can do with a steak.

We ate at the "Beef Connection" on weekday lunchtime. Not many people here eating, but what we ordered was of good quality and well-cooked by a really friendly lady who had been working there for twenty-two years. Our server was also very pleasant and chatty. Food was served after a short wait and well presented. I would certainly eat here... More

this place offers a very standard style steakhouse. the menu is as are so many others of its class. the meat is average and the preparation is also just average. the staff was not especially attentive, but there were few people in when we were there, so, maybe she was distracted by the kitchen team. there is plenty of free...

Last time we decided to give it a try, the meat tasted like it had been frozen and then thawed out. They décor has not been changed I think ever. Not worth the price. A better suggestion for steak on the Westbank is O'Brien's.

While it has been a long time since I had been to this restaurant, something came up while I was in the area, and my wife and I decided to go back, as we remembered that we had enjoyed it the last time we had gone there even though it had been several years ago. Thankfully we did and it... More

The Beef Connection has been around for years. (It used to a Ruth's Chris back in the day) It serves a good steak in an atmosphere straight from the oil field of the 70s. You won't see fancy cooking here. Just good meat broiled in butter with hearty side dishes.
