Fantastic service pairs with a classic supper club vibe at Dobie's Steak House. The lazy Susan and bread basket are great! Standard iceberg house salad, and Soup offering (The restaurant ran out of the house soup so we were served French Onion). Very good shrimp and the steak was cooked to a good medium rare while being somewhat bland. The issues unfortunately started with my Fish Fry as the fish was not fully cooked, and the batter was oozing out. I asked the server to have the kitchen fry two new pieces a little longer and the result was one over fried stringy piece of fish that still had uncooked batter oozing out. The other piece of fish was fried well with good flavor. Oh Dobie's we started off so strong and ended with more questions than answers. Is the fish used in the Fish Fry Frozen? Is too much batter the problem? GAH. 3.0 (5.0)
As always the food and service is amazing. Been coming to this place for years and no owners will be taking over soon, big shoes to fill. If you are ever in the area this is a for sure place for fish fry, steaks, shrimp etc and of course a Old Fashion from a Supper Club. Enjoy!!
For me personally, I did not care for Dobie's. Granted they are a steak house and I got chicken, but still. If you're going to put it on the menu, it should be quality cuts and cooked properly. What was brought to me was basically a frozen filet you get in the bags at the grocery store. NOT an actual chicken breast. And then is was so dry when I tried to cut through it that I couldn't without tearing it. I flipped it over and the underside was completely burnt. I sent it back. The second one was okay, but I definitely cook better chicken at home. Though my personal experience with the food was not pleasant, everyone who got steak (steak house) was more than pleased. Raved about how good it was and the size of the cuts. Unfortunately the person who ordered salmon had to stop halfway through because of the number of bones that was in it. The atmosphere is very nice with the old school supper club feel and the Lazy Susans for the table containing some very interesting and tasty options. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, however they will not split checks - keep in mind if going with a group. My experience, combined with that of the others in the group, lands Dobie's at a 3 star for me. Hit or miss depending what you order, but apparently if you're going for steak, it's a great option.
I haven't been here in years. Just recently moved back to this area. It was my parents favorite special place. My sister and I enjoyed it immensely,so nostalgic. The food was everything I remembered and more. Serving sizes off the charts. We had the porterhouse and it was so big my leftovers wouldn't fit in the togo container. Staff was friendly and inviting. Service was top notch. Will definitely be back.
Last Friday. Dressed up for a "supper club" experience. Welcomed by the hostess in a sweatshirt, must be uniform, bartender also. Lights were bright, first ones for dinner, hoped they'd be turned down. Ordered Porter House, Medium Rare. Enjoyed the relish tray & Old Fashion. Steak came, No pink at all. Sent back. First time I've ever done that. Meal ruined. Potatoes are now cold. Still was not a good steak. Thank goodness for Jenny, a great waitress! Otherwise a disappointment.
