“Another gem in Downtown Chandler!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

One of the better meals I've had in the East Valley. Great steakhouse on the square in downtown Chandler - more "upscale", but you pay for what you get. Owner(s) are from the Midwest (WI), so they have some options that you wouldn't ordinarily expect from a steakhouse in Arizona. One of the appetizers is Fried Cheese Curds, a Wisconsin staple. You can also get Walleye (fish), which is a bit unusual for Arizona. White tablecloths, extensive wine list, full bar, and great steaks - more upscale, but nice to have an option like this in the East Valley without having to drive to Scottsdale or Phoenix. Give them a try - you'll be glad you did!

“Steak cuts like butter”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The place it's clean and cozy. I ordered the steak and lobster. The steak was awesome. I didn't need a knife to cut it. The lobster was cooked perfectly and tasted so yummy. The staff was great! I liked it do much i bought a groupon when it became available. We will be going back

“Yummmmm”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is kind of a small place and nothing out of the ordinary but the food was amazing! I had the surf and turf which was the steak and lobster. I ate every bite of it. I could have just cut the steak with my fork. The lobster was cooked perfectly. Our waitress Jessica was wonderful. Will definitely go back.

“Local owners, great prices (for a steakhouse)”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Check out the steak experience the owner has - he's been doing this for many years, long before opening DC Steakhouse!

ATMOSPHERE: Love the space they are in, historic building, tin ceiling, FUN area on the main square. Dining inside and out. Great feel inside, swanky yet casual.

FOOD: Great food, had many steaks here & NEVER had a complaint of any kind about quality or cooked-to-order. I AM PICKY - I refuse to ever have another steak at mid-priced places like Outback, etc., as I think they are very bland, mediocre. I'd rather spend more & get a great one. Yet prices here are 1/3 - 1/2 less than the big-dog chain steakhouses, and I don't find the difference in service & quality worth the next bump up. The bread is hot & fresh, the house salads cold and fresh, & all the sides have been typical steakhouse but for literally HALF the price of the big-dogs, same size portions.

Their house wine is fine for the price point, but there's plenty of other choices to upgrade to if you wish (and I'm picky about wine too).

SERVICE: We have probably been here 10 times, when busy, when slow, as a couple, and in a group, & never had any complaint at all about service.

BONUS: A few times a year they run a Groupon special that ROCKS! We always buy these, as the price becomes AWESOME.

BONUS #2: LOCALLY OWNED!!! Keep your money in the community!!

“If Filet Mignon Is Your Thing....”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Put DC Steakhouse on your list! Simply fabulous! Wonderful salads, accompaniments and desserts! Service is warm and professional; the atmosphere is welcoming -- restaurant features a small outdoor patio and an extensive wine list! An ideal spot for a romantic dinner for two or to celebrate a special occasion -- open for dinner only starting at 4:00 p.m.
