All-around wonderful experience at Plank Road Steak House. The building was originally a wagon shop and has cleverly retained those elements. The staff was very friendly. Our server mentioned that the cheeseburger and french dip were popular items. She was correct! Very tasty! We chose the vast, fresh salad bar over french fries. The sweet tea was great! I highly...

The Plank Road Steakhouse is a great place for couples and small groups to have an evening out and a delicious dinner. Our food was delicious (especially dessert), the portions were ample, there were several side dishes to choose from, and the salad bar was very fresh and well varied. The atmosphere is rustic and casual, but very tasteful as... More

Yes i know, order steak in a steak house. But i wanted a cheeseburger and the word angus drew me in. What arrived was a humongus cornmeal dusted kaiser roll with a hamburger charred beyond recognition on the outside and yet way too pink inside. The french fries were not plated with the burger had to ask for them. Delivered... More

The food is good, the service is good and the atmosphere is great! This is the only Steak restaurant in town and does a great job. This is a good place for a special dinner with loved one or a business client.

My family and I celebrated my birthday at the restaurant tonight and we had a really good experience. We all had the steaks and they were cooked to perfection! The deserts do not disappoint! We had the sweet potato cheesecake and the orange Creamsicle cheesecake. Our server Andrea Alfano was very pleasing! She told us about the features and the... More

I know that this is mainly known as a steak restaurant, and their steaks are very good, but I really like their crab cakes as well. The salad bar is excellent with a lot of good salad choices as well as a variety of salad dressings. The service is great. Andrea Alfano sets the standard when it comes to being... More

I ( Nancy Williams) really enjoy going to the Plank Road Steak House. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is just the greatest. The service is personal and friendly, especially Anna the hostess. Always my favorite place to dine. I dine with my husband and friends on most occasions but feel very comfortable going alone.

Atmosphere is good, they have a separate room for private parties. Salad bar is outstanding!! The owner is always there and eager to please. The steaks are a bit pricey. I think the Ribeye was $29.95 and the sirloin $23 or something close to that. You can eat just the salad bar as a meal for $10.00, that is affordable.... More
