If you're looking for a place that's warm, inviting, and a little bit old-school (dimmed lights, warm wood paneling, high-backed booths) Kiernan's Steak House is where you want to be. I've been going to Kiernan's for over 30 years -

The food isn't that great (it has declined significantly over the years), it is very over-priced for what you get, and the service is spotty at best. We used to go there frequently, but now I would rather not waste my money.

Four of us. Our night out. Had our drinks. And we waited and waited and waited for our entrees. Only to be told that one of our dishes had fallen to the floor. More waiting. Would have been nice to be told what had happened and that because of the inconvenience we could have a drink on the house. No such luck. And we waited. Finally our entres came. My prime rib was unchewable. No more prime rib for me. Considering the reputation of Kiernan's, I would have expected much , much better. Customer happy it was not.

My husband and i are on a mission to try new restaurant and finally decided to try Kiernan's and what a disappointment it was. 10 minutes for waitress to arrive. She was very dry and rude, almost as if she was doing us a favor by waiting on us. Bread arrives 15 minutes later then we wait...15 min. our soup arrives. Good, but my husband's was on the cold side. We wait again, Escargot come out with absolutely no flavor. the waitress by the way was showing up every 15 minutes or so to refill water with no other acknowledgment. We wait again, 15...20 minutes go by and no salad. By then we were fedup with the delay 1h 5 mins to get a salad???. We asked the waitress for our order, she rudely responded that we have a busy dining room and you ordered full course dinner (app, soup, salad and steak) it will take a while (that was an 1hr 5mins later, we timed it). i called the manager and he stomped over as if we had insulted him. we heard the waitress talk to him before he arrived. he was even more rude than the waitress. We explained the long wait, the bad service but he sided with the waitress and accused us htat we had been on the phone when she came to take our order and we shooed her away (not true by the way, when she finally came around it was 10 minutes after we had been seated and off the phone). We told him to wrap the food to go he said no need, he will take care of it and just walked away with no apology/comment..VERY ARROGANT!! Whatever happened to customer service?? if i recall we were the paying customer here. They apparently don't need our business.
We paid, left 10% and left. NEVER GOING BACK AGAIN. DON'T RECOMMEND!! to make matters worse, Valet guy was an older man who could not find the car. we had to wait 10 minutes in the freezing cold for him to bring the car.
Dingy, dark place, bland food, poor service. They are trying to market themselves as higher end but truly you can get better service at applebees. We did not even get to the main course!!

This is a family owned business that has great service. The steak and veal are incredible! I love the Martini bar. I would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner.

We went there for a birthday and were seated at a round table. We couldn't hear each other. The food was terrible!!! The service was bad. For the expensive price you'd expect more. My sister did like it and wanted to go back but we all said we wouldn't go to that place again.

I will never go to this overprice, steakhouse again. The potatoes were cold, steak overcooked (I ordered it medium, got burnt). Service was poor. Waitstaff rude. Not recommended if you want a nice evening out.

Went to Kiernans again Friday night (7-13-2007). Service by Karen was great. She always does a great job. My filet mignon was awsome and cooked just how i ordered it. Baked potatoe was hot and very good.
my wife had the steak Kiernan dish and she said it was great as usual. That seems to be the only thing she orders. We had a bottle of wine (Jordon Cabernet). My favorite bottle from the many selections on their wine list. Been going to Kiernans for years and everything is always good. The staff is very nice and one of the owners is always around to greet us and say hello. We hope to have many more enjoyable meals there in the years to come. Keep up the good work.

I have lived in Dearborn over 6 years, my first visit to Kiernans was on 7-7-07.

We started out with oysters rock, they were good.
Our salads came after that and they were warm and soft lettuce, we didnt complain.

Our entres came out and they looked good, the lamb chops I had were not cooked as I had asked, and absolutley no seasoning, very bland. The rice that came with it was worse than boxed.

My husband had the sat. night special of steak, lobster tail and shrimp, his steak tasted mushy, like it was frozen, not seasoned well, his shrimp reminded me of dinner at red lobster, not good.

The empty dining room should of been my guss as how the food was going to be, but we thought we would give it a chance, I can see why they added a martini bar next -door.

Cons: terrible food.

Kiernans is my very favorite steak house. They have great steaks, as well as other foods, at very reasonable prices. They have great service as well. They also offer an awesome birthday deal, the birthday boy/girl gets their dinner (up to $13.99) absolutely free. . If there is a wait to get in, they have an awesome Martini bar

overcrowded for New Years - ordered sauteed perch at $28 with rice, received cold plate of mashed potatoes with colder fish. Instead of taking two minutes to cook fresh meal - they microwaved the fish - which made it rubbery.

Our first (and last) visit to Kiernan's was terrible!

The waitress seemed to be in a bad mood, and did not take good care of us. We waited approximately 45 minutes for our steaks, which were overcooked and dry when she finally brought them out. We normally would send them back, but based on her mood toward us, we decided to write it off. The food, the atmosphere and the service definitely did not add up to the $80 tab for my wife and me.

We are the type of customers waitpeople like to wait on - we are not demanding people, we are friendly to our servers, and we typically tip 20+ percent. I state this to add context to my comments regarding Kiernan's - we will never go back.

we like Kiernan's we go about once a month. Just had some fabulous Lamb Chops there last night. Love their European Beef Tenderloin covered in blue cheese and walnuts. Just scrumptious. Nice atmosphere especially on the bar side.

We love Kiernans! It has been an established restaurant in Dearborn for many, many years & the food & service are wonderful...Kevin, & brother Pat Kiernan are fabulous hosts!
We love the lighting...very conducive to enjoying good conversation with the delicious meal. Both sides are excellent (Silky's & Kiernan's). The management (Carmen) & staff provide excellent service. Always a great place for a date or to meet friends, entertain guests...

Has really gone downhill over the last decade. So many better restaurants in Dearborn. Still very dimly lit. Most of the beef and pork entrees are very poor tasting. Years ago this was one of my favorite places. Last year I took a large carryout order (over $125) to my parents and everything was just awful. I almost called back to complain but figured it wasn't worth the hassle. I'll never go back again.

My husband had a taste for lamb that day so he ordered the rack of lamb; he asked that it be well done, the lamb looked good and tasted good until he got to the middle where it was bloody and red. His lamb was taken back two times when he finally lost his appetite and said our dog Cheerio would get some meat on this actual bone. On the menu it warns you that meat might appear be rarer than you asked for but this lamb was alive it went baaaaa! Shay Stovall
