After being in there for 2 hours and receiving awful service (waiting 45+ minutes for even waters which we only received after getting up and asking for it, never receiving any type of refills and only receiving our check because we asked another waiter for it after 20 minutes), we obviously conveyed our frustration to the manager (Michael Anderson) when...

The grandkids always ask us to take them here when we visit. The food is ok, the shakes are great! Service was slow even though the restaurant was not full.

I've eaten at Steak N Shake before, usually a good experience. This location however was quite possibly the worst in most every category. The server we had was either hard of hearing or didn't care when I asked to add mushrooms to my burger and didn't get them. On top of that, I asked for seasoned cajun fries and ended... More

Typical Steak 'n Shake. Good location on Business Highway 50. We were on our way from Osage Beach to Saint Louis and needed a late lunch.

This was the first time we ever had to walk out of a restaurant because of poor service. We waited for 10 minutes to get our drink order in. Another fifteen minutes to get our drinks. And 40 minutes after we ordered, our meals had not even arrived! We asked for the bill, paid and walked out.

This is one of the worst places in Jefferson City, MO to eat at. The third shift or overnights is terrible. It is great if you don't mind dirty tables, listening to the kitchen crew cuss, waiting forever and a day to get your food, which half the time is wrong and cold, and watching Lincoln University students fight in...

We arrived after 2pm today, the restaurant did not have many guests but lots of staff and our order was very slow. However the shakes came right away.

I believe this place is the dark future of sit-down dining. You are "greeted" by a sign that says "wait to be seated" while three to four waitresses just stare at you. Finally, one steps up, seats you, and says someone will come wait on you. Then you wait. Meanwhile you get to watch wait staff talk to each other... More

We always stop at Steak 'n Shake anytime we are on a trip as we don't have them at home. We came here for lunch and again loved it. Service was outstanding- we had a large party with many kids and the waiter was very patient with them and attentive to our drink refills and orders. Shakes and food all... More
