    Regardless of the unfortunate location in proximity of a 2-star disreputable motel, this steakhouse is recommended. Parking is free but limited in the front. It's small with a bar taking up 1/3 of the establishment & a seating area of about 50. Dan, our server, was personable but professional & knowledgeable about the menu. We started with Pineapple Swoon cocktails which were delightful & bread (cold & rather dry but with a nice garlic butter). My companion wanted the Steak Diane but was disappointed with the 6oz offering, however, Dan provided an 8oz filet mignon alternative & managed to convince her to upgrade to the 12oz option. Extra mashed potatoes were provided when requested. I ordered the 16oz ribeye with green beans & substituted sautéed mushrooms for the mashed potatoes. Both were appropriately prepared, Dan touched the table several times, & the noise level was not an issue with only a few occupied tables. The only complaints were the constant removal of items from the table by table attendants (often just reaching for plates of unfinished food) & the fact that a couple of dessert options were listed on the dessert menu but not available (a frequent circumstance as was indicated to us). Overall, you won't be disappointed or hungry after dining here. ($150 spend before tip)

    The location from the outside is unassuming. They have done a good job of blocking out the motel and parking lot with curtains and lights. Food was great service fantastic. The bar was hopping when we arrived but the dinning area quiet and not crowded. We both had steak and it was delish. I also recommend the blue chips. Homemade potato chips with blue cheese and bacon. Yum!!

    This was our first time here and what a hidden gem. From the moment we walked in the door with a very warm welcome, to a super waiter, to a gracious host and outstanding manager….the evening was just perfect. Food was excellent and also reasonably priced in today’s standards. Our waiter was attentive and fun and we will certainly be back. Nice touch with the valet parking also.

    I have lived in South Jersey all my life and I can not believe I have never been here. We went for our anniversary and from the moment we walked in we were greeted with a Happy Anniversary and a complementary mini champagne 🍾 enough for two glasses 🥂 I thought that was really sweet. The foods hands down the best steak I have had I am seriously kicking myself that I have not been here before. Amazing food, amazing people, amazing service.

    Once again our dinners were fabulous! Best surf & turf in the area. The appetizers (shrimp cocktail & clams casino) were also scrumptious. Our server - Sam was a character; not only was he attentive, efficient, professional & friendly, but he could sing too! He kept us an the other diners around us in stitches with his stories and jokes. Needless to say, we had a wonderful experience.

    The food was out of this world, seriously. If you're looking for a good steak dinner it doesn't get much better than this. Service was phenomenal too. The restaurant is attached to a really sleazy motel though, really the only blemish and it's a big one. Try to look past that and it's a 5 star restaurant.

    Interesting place. If I hadn’t read reviews it would never have occurred to me to go in…it’s adjacent to a pretty sketchy looking motel and doesn’t look like an expensive restaurant from the outside. The decor inside isn’t a lot better, small and dark. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. My server was terrific. I was disappointed that they did not have prime rib which they bill as one of their specialties. I was there about 6 pm, so they weren’t out of it, I assume they just didn’t make it because they didn’t expect to sell it on a Tuesday night. My server told me he’d comp my dessert, which was nice but not quite the same. I had the ribeye steak instead which was pretty good though not capital grille or Ruth’s Chris good. I also ordered a Caesar salad because they advertise that they make it table side. They didn’t. They just brought it to me, drenched in dressing. I also had the garlic shrimp appetizer which was very good. My comped dessert was the largest piece of carrot cake I’ve ever seen, very tasty but I only ate about a quarter of it. Some other tables had their bananas foster, which they did make table side. My dinner was about $100 including a glass of wine and tip. I thought that was a bit much for what it was, but still a very good meal.

    Steak 38 RestaurantResponded on July 7, 2022Jim, We are disappointed we did not have the Prime Rib for you to enjoy. We slow cook it overnight but as we were closed for the holiday weekend we did not want to rush this crucial process. We typically do the Caesar table-side for 2 guests or more due to the ingredients ( and your server should have explained that to you), we would be more than happy to accommodate you on your next visit on us. We hope to see you again soon.

    Restaurant needs to be updated. Very dark decor. Ordered the Caesar salad expecting it be made a table side as advertised but received one pre made from the back. Told they only do table for 2 or more? Told waiter we were sharing the mussels plus ordered the salad and soup. Expected the mussels first but all came at once. Table too small. Not enough room. Mussels need red pepper added to the juice. At least 10 mussels were not opened. I got the Bernsaise sauce for my steak. Was very flat tasting.

    Steak 38 RestaurantResponded on June 23, 2022Joseph, We apologize that we did not meet your expectations when dining with us. Going forward we will have our staff articulate to our guests about the Caesars being for to our more guest for table side and to appropriately course meals. We hope that you can give us another opportunity to ensure everything is perfect on your next visit. Thank you, -Steak 38

    8oz filet, cooked to perfection. Hard boiled egg served with wedge salad, unusual touch, but good. Bananas Foster excellent. My only criticism (believe it or not) was my Tanqueray and tonic had too much alcohol and not enough tonic, and was missing the twist of lime. Table was too small for two, but it was only me anyway. They push valet parking by blocking off parking spots in the front of the restaurant, and forcing you to park in the back, some distance from the entrance. The spots nearer the entrance were "reserved" for valet. Service was prompt and very good. They seem to be well organized, with the manager coming over to be sure everything was right. The music coming over the PA was a tad loud, but OK, if you like Frank Sinatra. The restaurant shares a parking lot with a motel, but I don't think it's affiliated with the motel.

    Steak 38 RestaurantResponded on June 23, 2022Perkman, Thank you for your honest feedback. We do offer complimentary valet to all of our guests of Friday, Saturdays and on holidays.
