Lindsey's steak house poor quality steaks! Tough and never done the way you want. When you
Complain they substitute the prime for they a cheaper cut of meat.
The owners have an attitude and don't give the customer what they pay for. Over price, poor quality.
It's been there since 1958 and My Dad and Mom use to go there all the time. My Dad passed in 1998.And now I have to go there because everyone says their steaks are the best.
So After I have been there I will let you know. If I remember to write the reveiw lol.
Great Steak House – Perfect place to eat steak. Wonderful, delicious, just a treat. If you want anything other than steak, this place isn't for you.
If you don't like rare steak, don't come – There is only 1 option at LIndey's, Steak. If you like your steak medium well or more don't come because you won't be happy. The rare stake is cold pretty much the whole way through and one of the few steak houses that can serve it that way.
Shrimp is an option but why would you choose it. Many people complain about the sides. Potatoes, salad and pickled watermelon. If you go for the sides, don't come either. I enjoy everything but you don't get a choice so your out of luck if you don't.
Fridays during Lent are empty so the best time to go if you are a heathen. Get your steak rare if you can handle it, medium is like burning it, medium well: Go somewhere else they have plenty of business.
The Best I have ever had!!! – The first time I visited the establishment, I was not to sure because of it's appearance. Once I tasted that food, Oh my goodness. It is the best steak I have ever ever had. I am not a steak eater but when I do want it I will be going there from now on.
Yuck – I was taken here by my now husband on our first date 8 years ago. This was fancy for him but I was not at all impressed with any of it. The food was horrible. I am not a sirloin eater so the choices sucked. Where's the Ribeye or Filet? I understand you're sticking with what's kept you a float fro many years but you need some variety. The steak we got was huge and tough.
In the end our first date was still the best and even after this less than mediocre meal I still knew I was going to marry him!
Hard Chew – You can trust the previous (negative) reviews. They are pretty much spot on. The potatoes are salty. The garlic bread actually does look like it's made from hotdog buns. But whereever it can from, it is just toasted garlic butter on white bread. The butter-fried mushrooms were typical. The steak was nothing special. Mine was actually partially tough and chewy. There were a lot of overweight patrons in the place. The special was not special in any way I could tell.
Exceptional Old Time Steakhouse – If you want a yuppie trough like Kincaid's, stay home or find another place to eat.
This is a great place to eat. Old time decor, no flash, no chrome, no loud music. The salad is simple, the garlic bread is tasty and crisp.
The charm is in the simplicity of the menu and the food. Okay, they have a limited selection. This is good, in that you know what you are getting. Meat tends to run a bit rare so order accordingly. The pour a great drink, I would think the best in the twin cities. You actually get a full shot or better. We have been there 3 times since the first of the year and have yet to be disappointed.
This is a steak house, plain and simple. If you are some kind of a disenfranchised yuppie looking for the focus to be on you and your self centered desires go else where please. There are many of us who want to eat here.
Great food, good service, very good drinks!
Greater living through lowered expectations. – You could read all the reviews of Lindey's. Or you could man up and go see for your self. Yes the decor has not changed since 1961. Why remodel when the craptacular REAL not RETRO decor still works so well? The drinks are stiff and reasonably priced. The crowd seems to love the ambiance. The casual old school supper club aura brings back memories of going out for dinner in rural Wisconsin. Where Grandma was drinking Gray Hounds, Grandpa Scotch and my parents Martinis...
Yes there is only 2-3 choices on the menu. So what? It makes it easy to order. Have a drink and have fun. Leave your pretentious snobby friends at home and come with your comfortable laugh at any thing buddies and you will enjoy what Lindey's has to offer.
Contrary to popular belief the garlic bread is great and it is not made on hotdog buns... It just looks that way, lol.
The Salad is totally old-school. Like in the old days you get what the house thinks is their speciality. Some think the Iceberg lettuce single tomato Thousand Islandish salad is a rip off. I think it goes fine with the setting.
Its not like your Grandma ever made a better salad.
The Top of the line $27.00 Lindey's special cut is HUGE. Do not order 2 for your date and yourself. Order one and pay the dang plate charge. Get the side of mushrooms and spend the $17.00 you saved on wine or desert. The cut is the size of a Nerf football. They cut it for you table side and it finishes on your 700 degree plate... They do run a little rare. If you are squeamish about "pink" order your steak one level of "done" over what you might usually order.
A little wacky? Yes.
I would have to say Lindey's is a lot like Nye's without the cabbage and scary waitresses.
Go have a few bumps in the bar while you wait for your seat. Split a meal with your date and giggle all through dinner while you rip on the locals and the decor.
Its not Manny's, Ruth's or Kincade's
If you appreciate history, you will like Lindey's Steak House! – Lindey's was everything I expected it to be. I do not understand the people on this board that say it needs to be remodeled. That would totally take away from it's charm. If you want fancy go to Ruth Chris, etc. I felt like I was at an old supper club up north. My steak was delicious. The drinks were good. I chuckled at the salad, but it is exactly what I would expect to be served in an old supper club.
I kept think about how my dad would love the place. I thought the menu was charming. The easel they brought to the table sure makes it easy to decide on what you want to order. Nothing worse than going to a place with 100 items on the menu and they dont specialize in anything. You know this place specializes in steaks and our steaks were better than the steak we had at Kincaids last week! Lindey's is a piece of history. If you appreciated history and want to try something different from the "urban" scene. Check this place out.
