We had a nice meal. Sat in the bar area. Very large portions and an extensive menu. service very good. Only complaint the area seating was so dark you need a flaslight to read the menu.

Thankfully we arrived at 4:30 pm on a Saturday night and without reservations we were able to be seated with a party of five. The restaurant filled up quickly and when we left there was a long line and no parking in the parking lot. Our server was excellent; the steaks (Sizzler and Prime Rib) were top rate; and the...

Oldie but goodie in the City of Clawson. I don't even care that it needs MAJOR updating, its part of the atmosphere - straight out of the 80s inside. It's cozy, semi fine dining and there is a band that has played there religiously every week, Thursday through Sunday. I always get the filet, and the special "twice baked" potato.... More

Old school steakhouse with a very 70s feel dinning room that is dark and busy. Service is appropriate for the menu and steaks are always good. No reservations for smaller number of people is taken so you almost have to wait to be seated. You are not going to this place for the ambience or decor, just good steaks.

We had a very lovely time here! Splendid service, pleasant live music, absolutely fabulous (and HUGE) steak, (which we shared - also ordered a pasta dish which was also excellent) and the price really very reasonable. If you would like to have a somewhat elegant dinner in a lovely setting with professional waitstaff and no TV's on the walls, at... More

We went with our daughter and her husband for Christmas eve dinner. Totally understanding that it was a very busy night. We were placed at a table next to a main aisle. There was alot of traffic brushing by us and talking loudly which distracted from the meal. Our waitress was excellent. Very prompt with service and very attentive. Our... More

Excellent service, professional wait staff, maitre d' and bartenders like I haven't seen in years. That would forgive a lot of sins, but I couldn't find any to forgive. Every thing expertly prepared and served. Steaks like chain slop chutes WISH they could serve. Thanks for an outstanding meal !!!

Had the opportunity to eat here for the first time. Heard good things about it, but never had the chance to visit. We went to the Clawson Steak House to have a Christmas Party with 38 members of our Club. Service was OUTSTANDING, especially with such a large group. Very nice and clean atmosphere. Definitely not disappointed when we got... More

The greeter is in a suit and they usually have live entertainment in the late afternoon/evening. The service and food here are impeccable. I remember getting a small loaf of bread to share with our soup which was French Onion- it was divine! The steak, potato and vegetable came shortly after and I have heard restaurants get better quality steak... More

I've heard about Clawson Steak House for years and finally tried it with my husband. It is a legendary place and many friends have recommended it. I think it's a bit dark--hard to read the menu but no one seems to care. No one seems to care that the place has a slight musty smell to it. They show up... More
