    Greg Hill, the DJ from WAAF owned this place. He owns not your average Dick's in Boston as well

    Let me know how you like it. I've been thinking about inviting a customer and the wives to dinner there.

    Order something from the calf standing on the hill.
    If you shoot it you may get a discount.

    Don’t bring a gun.

    It’s so cool looking out at them grazing while you eat their young or ancesters.

    I had a business dinner there once. It was good, not great, but pretty damn good.

    If you read through the thread it shows I’m pretty vocal about calling GHG a great restaurant or serving great food - especially steaks.

    It is a decent place that we go to when we don’t feel like cooking. But the service and cooking are variable.

    Anyone got a couple hours to kill to compile a list of still alive good steak houses and their locations from these posts?

    My biggest problem is that most good steak houses are closed for lunch and don't open till evening. We quit nights out years ago.

    Thanks dr.... from No shore, it's 1.5 hours for lunch and I prefer a tad closer. If I am ever there, I will do it.

    I've got a couple decent places nearby on weekends, but one of them is closing and the other serves stingy drinks. Times move on.

    If you like Prime Rib it is worth it.

    They also make decent Manhattans, theres enough bourbons there to keep it interesting. (I had mine with basil haydens) I forget what it cost
    though, I had that separate at the bar before eating.

    It's also economical. I ate like a total pig there for like 60 something bucks last time, (with tip!) and that was prime rib (comes with salad and two sides I think) dessert, coffee, a glass of red wine with dinner...

    I normally don't even eat prime rib anymore because most places turn it into or just serve shoe leather. not NES&S.

    I love the verbiage on their menu for the steak done-ness levels. When you get to medium well the menu is like "We don't recommend this" [rofl] They
    are brutally honest about it. Well says like "We definitely don't recommend this.. Steak will be burnt, and flavorless." except its way more descriptive than
    that. [laugh]

    Ok, dr, I'll schedule an overnight. Got a decent recommendation on motel/hotel close by? (I do like my bourbon.)

    Not offhand, if 30Mauser ever comes back to this thread he probably does, though. What I would do is combine it with a day trip for some gun shops or
    something. In my case I went down to RI to shoot a steel match and then stopped at NES&S on the way back up. Then again its easy for me, only about 45 minutes from my house.

    The nearest accompdations are in Milford. Several of the usual chains, e.g., Courtyard, Fairfield, and a couple more. They are all ~ 15 minutes from NE Steak.

    My buddy has a bar stool there. He own’s it and should have title to it back to at least 1982.

    I'm sure Kitty's was great back in 1972. I don't think it's changed much since then. Pretty sure even the waitresses are the same.

    Sooo true. Ate there once, once. But they do have a cool little car show every Thursday night.

    Teresa's Prime in North Reading is pretty good. I wouldn't call it great, but pretty good if you happen to be in the area and don't want to wait for a table at Cap Grill or similar. Nowhere near as busy. Good place for a quiet table on like a Thursday night or something like that when you don't have reservations anywhere but want to eat without having to wait an hour for a table. Really friendly staff too.

    Also once for me. I ordered broiled scallops thinking "It's f-ing New England, they can't possibly mess up scallops." They did. Badly.
