Took my mom out for a birthday lunch. She'd been to Hunters before and wanted to return. The place seems to be pretty quiet during mid-week lunches. The menu highlighted the "award winning" prime rib, so I ordered the petite cut for lunch - medium rare. It was the ideal choice. And it seemed very generous for being "petite". The... More

I hadn't been here before but I was in the area and needed some red meat so I tried this place. Since I was on my own I sat at the bar. The service was very good and since they offered prime rib for lunch I tried it. It was good but I must say it was the thinnest piece... More

Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Had the corn chowder soup and chicken salad, both delicious. The salad was huge and took half home.

We were in Oceanside to have a nice dinner with our son in the military. We wanted to feed him a meal that he wouldn't typically eat. The service and food at Hunter Steakhouse delivered! We were there on a Monday evening in late October. They have a terrific special on Monday and Tuesday! Our service was spot on and... More

Prime rib is the specialty and it is good here. My family and I have been coming to this location since we relocated to northern San Diego in 1991. We always order our entree with the table side salad that we enjoy a lot. We come here a lot for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. They did a very... More

Went here tonight with my husband and brother in law. Seemed we weren't our waitress' first priority. Sat for a few minutes before we were greeted for drinks. Then ordered our food and she forgot my shrimp cocktail appetizer. While serving my brother in law his table side salad the waitress abruptly left after getting something was whispered to her...

Great steakhouses seem to be disappearing and that is why Hunter Steakhouse in Oceanside is a breath of fresh air. It has a cozy atmosphere, excellent food and friendly, professional service. The food quality is consistently a cut above the rest. This location offers early dining specials every day of the week so if you arrive between 3:30 and 5:30... More

Went with family for a good steak dinner and that's what we got. Steaks were cooked properly and the portions were nice size. Ambiance is ok, reminds me of an old time family restaurant and the decor is like this. lot's of little rooms help keep the noise down, and I like a quieter restaurant.

If you want a genuine honest to goodness steakhouse, here it is. The building looks like an old fashion steakhouse from years past. Just to look at it you can tell there is some serious history in these kitchens. We chose to eat downstairs, which is more like the bar-area. The upstairs looked very cozy and warm. Our bartender was... More
