    The decorating was very nice, but everything else about our experience was horrble. My husband ordered a T-bone, could not have possibly been a USDA prime or choice cut, it was mostly fat and grissle, and was not even cooked near medium as he ordered, but rare at best. There was absolutley not justification for charging $26 for it, and when he complained all they offered to do was refire it, he had only taken four bites, and asked them to just take it away because refiring it would have dried it out (which they should know as a steakhouse) and there was not any meat left on what they claimed to be a T-bone...the rest was all grissle and fat! So they took $6 off and we had to pay $20 for four bites of meat. My steak was tough and the kids' chicken tenders were extremely salty, so we paid $84 for extremely slow service and food that my husband and children didn't eat..I choked down about half of mine becuase I felt bad we were being charged so much for such horrible food and service

    What Happens To Cows who Smoke? They end up at Chris's Steak House

    Love atmosphere, attentive server, and amazing restroom ( important to women!) First booth I ever sat in that was actually comfortable! Downsides, small cumbersome salad bar ( not sure if they use a machete on the cucumbers but hey..what did they ever do to you?) I'm not a huge snob when it comes to restaurants but for fine dining to start out with wrapped saltines crackers? That was disappointing, only after about 10-15 mins where the rolls offered. I love steak and being a steak house I really looked forward to the first bite...cooked perfectly medium rare...yes...but the taste...awful..not sure if this was one of those aged steaks, but it was something I could not even finish ( thank God now for those wrapped crackers) I suspect they use liquid smoke or the cows had a smoking habit in lifeDon't bother with the twice baked potatoes, order the baked and doctor it up for yourself.I can't speak for the rest of the entrees, I hope they are more fitting of the establishment's hype.

    From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with pleasantness. The restaurant is quite nice. We showed up early for our party (before 5 pm) and went to the bar. The bartender was not open yet and looked quite busy, but stopped to greet us with a great smile anyway. Brandie made us a couple of her favorite martini's and they were tasty!! She showed us the new patio to accomodate smokers. Beautiful!! We had good conversation until our party arrived. Our server greeted us as we sat at his table. Quick to get our drinks to us and take our order. We started with the salad bar and it was good. Shortly after our filets arrived and were cooked to perfection. Our friend ordered seafood and said it was delicious as well! We were way too full to try desert, but it looked good too! Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone craving great food, drinks, and service. Thanks to Brandie, Foster, and the owners( i think it was Greg that stopped by)! We will be back!

    very romantic, but not delicious

    by seafood lover , 11/21/2010

    Ok the atmosphere was really nice and romantic, the service was great........The food was horrible. I ordered the broiled seafood combo, it was extremly bland and my husband got a steak and crab stuffed shrimp, there was noooo flavor and it was extremly overpriced. You may be annoyed thaat they bring you Lance crakers and cheese whiz to start out your meal, but you will soon realize that these are the most flavorful item you will be receiving. I am a great cook, and when I go to a resturant I expect certain things, also their cooking should be better than mine. That was not the case here. Carrabba's is still my favorite place to eat in fayetteville.

    Worth every penny.

    Chris's Steak House was the best dining experience. Our cocktails were perfect, appetizers, excellent and our prime rib, the best we've ever had!!! The service was on key and the owners were great! They are actually cut and cook all the steaks...amazing! I would highly recommend this establishment.

    Great Food & Service

    by DR , 05/27/2010

    If you are looking for a restaurant with great food, atmosphere, and service try Chris's. They have one of the best salad bars in town...and speaking of bars, theirs is a great place to go hang out before you have dinner..relaxed, social and fun! Full service bar with great bartenders....

    Got a free gift certificate and dinned at Chris's tonight. Nice setting and atmosphere... Salad bar was OK (see Jason's Deli for high marks on a salad bar)... THE STEAK WAS COOKED RIGHT, BUT SMELLED/TASTED LIKE CHARRED MEAT (not sure why a good steak should taste like burnt liquid smoke). Our dog's got the bulk of the STEAK meal.Texas Steak House will continue to get my money when I pay for a steak dinner. Peanuts and hot, fresh bread rolls will always get my vote over Saltine crackers and Cheeze Whiz upon arrival.Chris's is marked on my "Do Not Return List".

    Second visit to Chris's

    by Hank , 10/25/2010

    A mouthful of carcinogenic meat. I concur with previous comments. Great atmosphere! Saltines and cheese whiz is disappointing. Salad bar is not impressive. If I want a steak done my way, I'll simply do it on my grill, if I want to take my girlfriend out to wine and dine, we'll go to Logan's or Texas Steak House... A1 Steak Sauce could not have ever helped the steaks I've had at Chris's.

    I knew we were in trouble when I saw the parking lot full. However the wait was worth it. Fine food served by professional wait staff make the evening very pleasant. If you're looking for fine dining in Fayetteville look no further. Chris's is the place to be
