Had a wonderful steak dinner here. Top sirloin cooked perfectly and so tender. Started our meal with a nice cup of clam chowder. Nice salad bar with a large block of cheese you can cute how much you want and nice fresh bread. Excellent wait staff.

Had a surprise birthday party for my aunt and the party was great. Had one of the best steak au poivres ever! They have a traditional salad bar and some terrific cuts of steak! Service was great and the environment is very nice. Traditional decor with a fireplace, nothing template-y at all. A very nice steak house, not too dressy... More

Like so many restaurants in the area, not terrible, but not worth traveling far for. Husband asked for steak med rare. Came almost black outside, bloody (not pink) inside. He said it was not trimmed well, either; don't know if that's a supplier or kitchen problem. Would have sent it back. but didn't want to inconvenience the folks we were... More

Salad bar was nice. As our plates started to come one by one our disappointment came over. My scallops were... More

We filled our salad plates and just started to eat when the appetizer arrived. We set the salad aside and had the shared appetizer.We decided... More

First of all I have to say the servers were great and the salad bar was wonderful as usual. We were there to celebrate my 75th birthday as it's one of our favorite restaurants. The sirloin steak for two was so chewy and you could hardly cut it with the steak knife. It looked so delicious when served. This is... More

We enjoyed our meal and the service. Our first visit to Hardcover. I enjoyed filet mignon and had ordered it medium rare and it was perfect. My husband had baked stuffed shrimp and scallops and was completely satisfied. The salad bar was a surprise both because I haven't seen one in ages and it was so good. Very generous size... More

The food is still very good. They have a huge salad bar which comes with the meals. They also make excellent drinks. The place is always crowded so it can be very loud.

Classic steak house ambience. Busy, crowded Friday night but seated in a timely way. Wait staff attentive and helpful with specials. Three course/$20 special was terrific. 8oz beef with giant baked potato, came with salad bar and delightful apple crisp. 10oz sirloin was also delicious. Will definitely go back.
