The waitresses took 30 mins to bring our drinks and that was after we told another waiter that we still haven't received our drinks. When she came with our drinks she spilled half of them . Did not come once to see if we were ok and didnt bring us napkins.

Food is always amazing, but service here is not great. Waitress only came by once after we received our food.

My husband and I have always loved Steak 'n Shake, and we may visit one again in the future. But I will not be back to the location in Winston Salem, North Carolina and would strongly advise against going. Unclean. Cocky Smartalec Servers, crispy over cooked burgers and cold food....... to the point where my husband was compelled to contact... More

Chicago dog is tasty. Beware they run out of poppy seed buns. Only place in the area open 24 hours so don't expect much from service, but it is convenient being open all night. I work late hours so that's why I come here. What I mean by that is, I visit here about 3 times a week at Late... More

We waited about 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged that we were there. We were given a seat...and waited again...then he flagged a waitress and told her how long we'd been waiting, she said "oh, this is not my table, I'll send over your waitress". We waited again, finally, someone came and took our drink orders only, we told her that... More

Visited this location while hosting a friend from out of state. Aside from standing in the doorway for 15 minutes before even being greeted, we were sat at a dirty table, and waited another 15 minutes before our server introduced himself. We visited at 2:00pm on a Sunday, and the restaurant was fully staffed from what I could tell. The... More

Our visit to this restaurant had to be the worse total overall service I have had at a restaurant. First off, there were about 5 employees hanging out in the front. One of them finally asked us "how many" and seated us. His talk was barely above a murmur with zero emotion/excitement. He moved slower than a sloth and made... More
