The Good Steer is a really good restaurant. Although they are really well known for their burgers and onion rings, they also have good steaks, chicken and seafood.

Except for the long waits on Friday and Saturday nights, you can't go wrong with the Good Steer. Burgers and salads are great. Service is attentive. We ordered the ribs sampler for appetizer and thought that it was skimpy for the price. We had salads with prime rib and burgers and everything was delicious.

Busy Saturday night but wait wasn't long. Service was very good. Burgers were excellent,cooked as asked for. Salads were fresh and large, soups were excellent (seafood bisque & French onion) Never disappoints.

I have been going there since the 50's when the place just opened and the burger supreme was served on a paper plate for 85 cents. So my overall review is that the food has gone from a standby to a good bye. I was there with the new menu and higher prices, so I ordered the Pitmaster, and was... More

I've passed this place many times. Decided to visit it with my family(2 adults + 4 children) We had no idea on what to order. Our waitress had great suggestions from burgers to soup. Everything was perfect. Portions were very big. We even took some home. Everyone was very friendly. We will definitely visit again.

I took my family to the Good Steer on Sunday evening and nobody was disappointed. The menu has expanded since the last time I was there, but I still think the burgers remain the best choice. I had the Original Burger Supreme and I was able to substitute a Farmers salad for Fries - both were great! Others at our... More

My wife and I went here the other night as we are back in town visiting family. They have expanded their menu since our last visit. They serve good food for a reasonable price. My wife used to come here all the time when she was a kid and still loves the place.

We haven't eaten here in years so when my wife suggested it I was game. Had a very good blue cheese burger - cooked just right and the crispy onions made it nearly impossible to pick up (I managed). I really enjoyed it, and when I heard someone at another table ask for the garlic fries with their order, I... More
