Steakhouse
When Surf & Sirloin opened its doors in 1994, owner Larry Karagiannis wanted to serve high quality steaks and fresh seafood at a reasonable price. As for the seafood, Surf & Sirloin has always acquired its fish whole so the product can be inspected on site to ensure quality and integrity. Many favorites include Jumbo Shrimp Tempura (made with REAL beer batter), seared Maine Sea Scallops, Scottish Salmon & oyster’s Rockefeller. For the steak eaters of the world, Surf & Sirloin offers a variety of different cuts. The tender Filet Mignon with classic Béarnaise is our most popular item but for those looking for more flavor; a hand- cut 14oz New York Strip or the 16oz Rib Eye is the way to go. For a mix of the two, go for the 22 ounce Porterhouse (The cut reserved for Kings). I

The tables were nicely spaced. The food was excellent. Our server worked very hard to meet our needs. Even though every table was filled, each family was able to enjoy their party in a quiet atmosphere.

Although there was a lot of room in the restaurant, we let us to a small booth by the bar. The room was, and continue to, be very loud. There were three of us and the other two enjoyed their meal. My steak was at least 1/3 gristle and inedible. The prices are higher than what you would expect for the same food and service.

The food and service were good. However, the place was very dated. The bathroom, while clean ( which is most important), was worn with broken tiles. I know restaurants are hurting after being shut down due to COVID so hoping when things improve that a refresh becomes a priority.

Had exceptional service from Austin last night and the food was great. My steak was cooked exactly the way I like it and the Foster potatoes were a nice change. A very nice place. Will be back again.

Took the family out and we enjoyed ourselves. A tad bit noisy, but I think it was a lot of graduation celebrations. Food was delicious, especially the crab cakes and oysters.

Surf & Sirloin has a varied and upscale menu. There aren't many places where you can find escargot and grilled octopus appetizers. Their fish dishes are generally very good and nicely prepared. Steaks are always a good choice.

First time visitors, we enjoyed our dinner! Service was great, and the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. we loved the appetizer (cajun shrimp) and our cocktails were made to order.
We had the fish special-which was 'good' but somewhat bland. We were not disappointed-and will be back to try other items from the menu!

The food was forgetable.

Service was slow.

Dining room is dated.

Don't mind paying for a premium experience. But that's not what I received.

It should be acknowledged that staffing at most restaurants has been negatively impacted by COVID-19 . The same is true at Surf & Sirloin. However, service is generally lackluster, food is OK-not great, and ambiance is mediocre, without energy.

The food is very good, but we will not be back. We noted on Open Table we were celebrating a 60th wedding anniversary, and we mentioned it to the hostess. But there was ZERO acknowledgment of the very special anniversary. Besides that, this place is very dated- it really needs a face lift. Its a shame because the food is very good. We have no problem paying a premium for a great dining experience, but there is no “experience”here.

Horrible server (Austin) and service. Reserved over one week for Mother’s Day, upon arrival, had to wait 5-10 minutes before seated. Server was loud and inattentive to details (no straw, forgot beverage) and debated about charging for a lemonade because of wife (on Mother’s Day) adding lemon and “sugar free” packets to water, a manager corrected the server. Overall, server put a damper on dinner, had to speak with manager to correct server and mention service. No plans to return!

Mother’s Day Brunch was a hit at Surf & Sirloin. They easily accommodated five people and our table was ready right on time aligning with our reservation. The service was excellent as was the food. And the menu was quite extensive with plenty of choices to suit everyone’s desires. The dining area could use some updates, but when the food and service are this good, that is a minor issue. We’ll definitely be back! Thanks for a great day!

Our server was not friendly and borderline rude. For the money we spent I was pretty disappointed! We asked to split the check between two couples and he refused said it was on the menu no split checks which isn’t wasn’t- it said specifically parties of six or more which we weren’t. It doesn’t seem like it would have been difficult considering our $300+ check! I doubt I will be going back here anytime soon!

Wine list by the glass was a little sparse, understandable when business is slow, you don't want a bunch of open bottles getting stale. But we managed to get very nice wines. The salads were only average. Entrees were very good; I had the scallops (out of the veal chop), and my wife had the special steak with shrimp and scallops. Sides were also excellent.
I downgraded ambience as there was only one other couple there (we were well spaced) and a power outage to boot, both not entirely their fault.
I recommend Surf and Sirloin.

The food is great. We were seated in a corner. There were 2 couples seated after us, they took both of their orders first. It was very loud. It seemed like no one knew what inside voices were. I chose this for a birthday dinner and they did not wish her a Happy Birthday. Not expecting anything but why ask?

Again the steak was great and perfectly prepared. If you are looking for romantic it is a bit loud and not a romantic atmosphere.
