I visited there in early January 2013 and it was outstanding. The Au Gratin potatoes were the very best I have ever had, the appetizers were delicious and our waitress was excellent and very nice. The Caspers run a great restaurant. I

I am a good friend of the owner's sons, so they give us coupons every once in a while. The burgers are great, and the bacon on the bacon burger is always done right. Before the remodeling, I always loved the crab legs and steak, but since the renovation, They have come up with a bunch of new menu items that are just as great.

My girlfriend and I went there a couple of days ago and we ordered the most expensive steak they had.
It was way, way way, undercooked. When we cut into it in front of the waitress, she grabbed it and brought it in back to be cooked

We had a really good experience last month. My husband loved the huge turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and the beer selection.
The waiter asked him his beer preferences to narrow down his choices, then made a nice recommendation. My burger was soo good. The food arrived neither super fast nor super slow, but who cares when there is bread to eat and a handsome man sitting across the table? Oh! Get Tony's fries and you won't be sorry. (Not sure if they are on the menu or not.) I was surprised by a nice-sized side salad. We had a nice night out. Place has a friendly feel to it.

We live in the neighborhood and we've eaten at CSR for years. The steak was never that good, but it was nice to have a "steak house" that we could walk to.

We've tried several times after the "makeover" and just can't warm up to it. As near as we can tell, everyone quit during the remodel.

The service is not good, the food is marginal, it's very noisy and the owner (who often stops by your table) thinks everything is just wonderful.

The place is busy, I drive by it every day, but I can't believe it's because of the food...

I have been to the Cherokee Sirloin Room many times over the years... both at Eagan and West St Paul. My husband and I went there for lunch (WSP) on Saturday, Jan 2nd. I will probably never go back there again. There was only a handful of people there when we arrived (around 2:00 in afternoon). The hostess was very irratated when I asked for a booth, rather than a table. Even though there were many booths open, we had to wait for her to clear the only booth that had dirty dishes on them. We then had the most snotty waitress I have ever had. She had an attitude in which she felt she was better than anyone and was put out by our being there. Because the menu had changed since the last time we were there, I asked her a couple of questions about a couple of entries. Her answers were nothing but rude. I asked her if I could still get the "Classic Club" sandwich that I loved so much. Her answer was "Do you see it on the menu?" "Well then, that answers your question, doesn't it?" When I asked her if the "steak sandwich" on the menu was actually a sandwich or just a small steak with bread on the side, she then put the menus under her arms so she could make fun of my question, to display motions eating a hamburger and said I have never seen anyone eat a steak sandwich like a hamburger".
After waiting one hour and 1/2 to get our food (by this time we were the only ones in the place with one other table), my husband and I only received about 10 french fries each. After we were almost done eating, she came over with another plate of undone fries and said that they had ran out earlier (?)
I was not impressed with my sandwich and only ate half. I asked her for a to-go container and she said that she would put it in a container herself in the back. She then took my husbands plate away from him as he was still eating and he told her that he was not done. She just gave him a dirty look and said 'Whatever".
That rude service will never be forgotten. I have mentioned it to others who go there and they also agreed that the "new look" to the place has not been positive.
I will never step foot in there again. I hope you did not ruin the Eagan place like you did this one.

1 hour and 10 minutes wait beyond our reservation time with no effort to inform us or work with us. The; food was just barely warm, salad plates and bread plates were not cleared in order to make room to serve our entrees. My dinner was handed to me over the top of my friend sitting across the table from me. Steak in one hand and baked potato in the other and no place to put it. We are pro nite regulars. For 25 years we have visited on Dec. 30 for the special menu, champagne and strolling minsrals. This time we had to ask for our champagne and then only got our glass filled if we "promised to smile". When one member said NO the owners son left without filling the glass. Now there is class for you. One member of our group never got an entree. They forgot to cook it! When they tried to hurry up a medium well steak it came to the plate brown outside, cold and bleeding red when cut. It was gross. We were seated in a raised floor area and when two different members of the group got up to visit the restroom their chairs fell backwards crashing onto the main floor. A broken ankle or leg just waiting to happen. Two of the owners were present and made no attempt to apologize or make up for our 70 minute wait or the other problems. The bartender and the server knew we were not happy and offered to buy a round of drinks because we were treated so poorly -- but the owners -- they just ignored us and tired to stay as far away from our table as possible. If you want to pay top dollar for service that is worse than a drive thru at a fast food then this would be the place for you. We paid for a portion of our tab with two $10 coupons from their Eagan store. One couple in our party had coupons because they tried to eat at the other store the previous week and had a steak they couldn't chew. New is not better and not improved in our view. No dining experience to be had. New tables and new staff - YUCK!

First of all this place need to update their website. 50% of their menu is undated on their site. I took my wife for our anniversary and the place was fool of old people and the smell was in the air. Ive ordered their so call "Steak of the Millenuim" and it wasnt even good. The steak wasnt seasoned with salt or pepper, over cooked, and folded into one big piece. My mash potatoe was portioned equal to one scoop of ice cream . Ive paid 22 dollars and could have got a better steak at Fridays, perkins, or dennys. As a chef with 16 years of experience I wont recommend this restaurant to any of my friends.

The Sirloin Room has made quite the change! I was there for lunch this past week and was VERY impressed! They've always had good food, but with the tight space and dim lighting I didn't go there very often. With the "new look" I will DEFINITELY be back more often! Not to mention...they have pull tabs and salsa bands...I'd HIGHLY recommend going here!!

Casper's offers a very generic setting with good food. There really wasn't anything about the atmosphere to set it apart from anywhere. The food was good and so was the service.

Took the wife there for the free sirloin birthday . It wasn't very impressive. Might as not have a reservation they seat first come first serve. I had reservation for 7 pm and I was watching people getting seated on standby before me. After I said something they wanted me to sit at the bar? Why did I get a reservation? I tried little bit of the steak and it was dry and had no taste. The renowned au gratin potato's were au-rotten. The waitress was pretty good though. I would never go back there again. I think the hostess just put me in the bad mood for the whole evening.

My boyfriend and I went to the Sirloin Room on a Friday night, but the dining room wasn't very full at all. We were seated promptly. The complimentary bread was delicious--hot and soft. The salads were kind of bland with just iceberg lettuce and a few veggies thrown on top. Their ranch dressing was great though. I got the Steak of the Millenium and wasn't impressed. It was good, but I've had much better. My boyfriend had a bacon wrapped steak and wasn't impressed either. Their Au Gratin potatoes are to die for--cheesy, hot and delicious.

This is an old school steak restaurant with good service, reasonable prices and good menu choices, but the steak itself isn't worth a special trip.

This is a class act place. The service is very professional but not snobby in any way. The food is the reason to come here though. By the way if you like bread, they have the best appetizer bread I've ever had and the best part is it's complimentary. Go here for a great dinner and you won't be discouraged.

This place is a great alternative to your more expensive and fancy steakhouses. The steak is top quality and very reasonably priced. The fish is also good. Add a bottle of wine for something special. The servers and overall environment was nice and but still casual. A great weekend dinner option.
