We have been enjoying eating at Wagstaff's Steak House for more than 25 years. The meals are even more delicious today than they were back then; however, the steaks and the service are the reason we have been going there all these years.

The negative reviewers don't seem to understand what they're talking about. (Several reviewers complain about not finding the soup, but it's always right to the left of the salad bar!)\r

If I could give this restaurant a negative rating, believe me, I would! I don't mind spending a little extra money for "fine dining", where you get what you pay for, but Wagstaff's charges Morton's prices for sub-standard food and

Ever since I discovered this place, I have been in love. Unlike other steak restaurants, they don't try to be everything to everybody - they are STEAK - not chicken not seafood, not saloon.....they wheel a cart of two cuts of your choice: NY Strip and Delmonico...if you order your steak too thin, it's your fault, not theirs. Sides are minimal - they concentrate on STEAK.....they offer freshly made grilled toast, not frozen brown and serve brown colored loaves....the service is excellent and friendly. the STEAK is always perfect, tender and a cut above chains. They are a family, not a chain. Some of the diners wear shorts, others wear evening dress. It's your choice. If you go there to look and judge what people are wearing, then obviously, you aren't there for food. As for the wine list, alcohol is their forte - you are there to eat steak, not fill up on wine. This place is THE PLACE

Pros: live charcoal cooking, prime steaks, no fake saloon hype

Cons: parking could be better, tables farther apart

I took my wife here for our anniversary and it was absolutely delicious. We both ordered the prime rib, we were not disappointed with the taste. We had cheese cake for dessert, very rich.

I have eaten at Wagstaff's several times and they have never failed to impress me. The dining room is romantic and semi-formal, offering a great atmosphere for a first date, engagement proposal, or simply a family outing. They offer two cuts of steak, bring out the entire side of beef, and letting you choose the thickness. If your steak is to thin it simply is your own fault. The prices are reasonable and the side portions are generous. The customer service is excellent and it makes you feel at home.

You decide how thick you'd like your beef sliced tableside prior to your server heading to the kitchen. Steaks, chicken, shellfish and fish cooked over REAL charcoal. Good food, but in this person's opinion, over priced.

I've been going to Wagstaff's for 6+ years. Sometimes alone, sometimes with business clients and sometimes with large groups. What I can say with absolute certainty is they cook their steaks, chicken, and some of the shellfish (including fish) over REAL charcoal. Their NY Strip or Ribeye is USDA "Top Choice" vs, the very pricy eateries who use USDA Prime. You will pay a lot more to Prime steaks, and the quality is (in my opinion) not worth the difference in money. In the 6 years I have been dining at Wagstaff's I have never had a bad meal nor a steak that was not tasty and tender, with the unmistakable flavor of meat roasted over real characoal. For those who want a drink, their mixed beverages are not skimpy (I like Martini's) nor watered down. You don't have to ask for water - and they allow you to smoke (no pipes nor cigars) in the small smoking section (which has electronic air cleaners). Wagstaff's is a class act without the air of pretense. If you want an above average meal at a reasonable price, and not have to dress to the teeth unless you want to, Wagstaff's is a restaurant you will want to come back and dine at, over and over again.

Pros: Killer freshly cooked shrimp cocktail, live charcoal cooking

Cons: Very Busy - reservations a must

Food? The steaks had NO FLAVOR! They were obviously cooked over charcoal & at a much higher temperature than necessary. The choices for "side items" were french fries, baked potato, or HASHBROWNS. Our bread choice was "Texas Toast." I'm sorry- was I in a steakhouse or a WaffleHouse? The baked potatoes were small and the "fixins" were minimal.
The salad bar was another disappointment-no effort made towards presentation and the salad dressing was bottle qaulity, not gourmet.
Class and ambiance? Customers wore shorts AND there were some in T-shirts. My fiance wore a tie and was extremely over dressed.
Wine lover? The wine list was small and not impressive.
Customer service? Probably the only good part. The servers were friendly and somewhat prompt. We had several servers, which was a little confusing.
Overall- I do not recommend it. They should market themselves for what they are- a high-end diner.

First time my wife and I went there was for our anniversary. The service was great but what sets Wagstaff's apart is the steak. Not only do they roll the steak to your table but the gentleman who does the cutting is the owner. The prime rib was fantastic. No A-1 needed for either my or my wife's steak. The side of hashbrowns "all the way" were tasty. Just to top it off you must try the wonderful cheescake. Prices are very reasonable and competative.

lacks a good or at least decent wine list. The few wines you can buy are the same main stream jug wines that mostly cheaper restaurants offer.

When you can get so many good value wines, why not complete the experience?

Pros: Good food, pick your cut

Decent restaurant, but it is definitely overrated from my perspective. Most steakhouses offer filet mignon, but this establishment does not. The tables are uncomfortably close to one another and the dining room is not that elegant. Portion sizes are smaller than most good steakhouses and the night we were there, our server did not treat our group with as much respect as she should have. All in all, I would not return to this restaurant.

If you're like me and decide WHAT you want to eat before WHERE you want to eat, Wagstaff's is the place for you . . . if you want the best steak in town. Select your cut at your table in a cozy atmosphere geared toward family dining. Great service and excellent beef easily make this my favorite restaurant in the Richmond area. If you want a wide variety of dishes - - go somewhere else. If you want a top notch steak dinner at a reasonable price, go to Wagstaff's.

The steaks are brought to your table and you get to select the cut of your choice. This leads to no surprises. They are cooked to perfection and the sides are unbeatable. Their salad bar is gracious and the homemade soups are spectacular. I recommend this establishment to all my friends and eat there whenever I get a taste for a good steak.
