“Worst Place to eat in Merrillville”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

First problem is they do not take reservations, which is not to bad if you know you will have at least a 30 minute wait on a Saturday evening. I suspect this is so you will sit in the noisy and overcrowded bar area buying drinks at down Chicago prices.I odered a Rusty Nail, which our bartender did not know how to make. When we were seated our waitress was very slow to take our order, which was compounded by the fact she could not sspeak above the noise in the room. When our food was finally delivered the steaks were fatty and tough. Additionally, our waitress forgot to bring my wife's side order.

“Trip to Longhorn Steakhouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

Saturday afternoon about 4:00 and was told that there would be a 25 minute wait but had to wait over 35 minutes to get a table. The waiting area was way overcrowded (They really need more room in the waiting area) I would have given a lower score but the waitress and the food almost made up for it. Spent a total of 2 hours in the restruant which is too long to sit and our legs were falling asleep.

“Ridicously Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

This restaurant is absolutely ridicously delicious. I love the Salmon, vegetabes and the Loaded Baked Sweet Potatoe makes history in my world. The steaks are cooked excellent and the lemonades add such a wonderful twist to the meal. Please go, you will be glad you did. The atmosphere is very nice as well, you can dress it up or down, it works for all occasions. They have my vote!
