My first experience at Sayler's was in 1968 when I was a freshman on a date with my high school sweetheart, (He's still my sweetheart!) and we've been going there regularly ever since. It's our first choice for any reason we can think of for a celebratory meal. We always order the same thing - the tenderloin. It is incredibly juicy and tender, and I can honestly say that we've never had a bad meal, or disappointing service in our 46 years of enjoying this marvelous steak house. The onion rings are absolutely delish, and their sour cream is to die for. (I don't know what they do to it - it's not regular sour cream.) When you consider everything that comes with a meal - relish tray served with the sour cream/dip, bread with lots of butter and garlic butter, soup or salad, entreé and sides, and ice cream, it's a great value. Most of their wait staff has been there for years.....that in itself says something about this establishment's core values.
I AND MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS HAVE BEEN GOING TO SAYLERS SINCE 1962 WHEN I WAS IN THE AIR FORCE STATIONED AT THE PORTLAND AIRBASE. THIS IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE STEAK HOUSE. WE GO THERE AS OFTEN AS WE CAN AND FEEL IT IS A FIRST CLASS RESTAURANT IN EVERY WAY INCLUDING THE SERVICE AND BEST OF ALL THE FOOD.
was good but not as good as it was back in the day. They need to clean up it looked dirty to me
a big boo ate there years ago and it was great went recently service wasnt so good and it looked dirty to me wound up going elsewhere
The Traditional Steak house atmosphere is preserved in such a comfortable way. It looks effortless but I think it is thru a lot of effort that their professional restaurant style in the staff has not slipped over so many years. Usually it is eventually lost to boredom of repetition or eventual poor management. I personally love the hal. fish and chips.
Sayler"s Old Country Kitchen – My wife and I have eaten at sayer's for the past thirty years. We try to make it a family gathering for birthdays, and other special events. There is no better steak in the world. We also enjoy the prime rib. It is my grandsons 23rd birthday today and we will be at Sayler's around five to once again enjoy the fine food, and excellent customer service
Thank you for that, and I hope you had a good dinner. Bryan Sayler
The only steakhouse in the WORLD for me~ – You might want to read my coment (to say the least) about Mr 1 star after 20 yrs. of eating there who had a bad experience, poor him! As I said I have eaten here for 50 yrs, yes I was 6 yrs old. I begged my daddy to take us there every week and he did. I have been through the Krahl family working there to Sam Elliot, to the large blonde lady, now deceased. Unreal unreal read my rebuttal, it says it all. Come to San Diego Sayler's Country Kitchen I will make it my personal mission to make you the best here too. Warm regards, Pamela Haye
Wow!!! – I'll try to keep this short...
I planned on getting together with my son for dinner tonight (he's 18, so it don't happen often enough anymore). I asked him what he felt like and he had a 1 word answer - STEAK. After a lame experience at another steakhouse recently I went online to explore and found Sayler's here on CitySearch. I'd never heard of them before but after seeing the majority of reviews in the 4-to-5 star range I thought it'd be worth a try. (Admittedly I was a bit worried about the several reviews I saw regarding bad service.)
We showed up and the parking lot was PACKED (uh-oh, bad service here we come). Got inside & got seated immediately. Literally within 10 minutes we had our beverages, appetizers & salads - let the gorging begin. I don't know how anyone ever had bad service here unless they've recently changed their policies. It was like the waitresses were on a rotation of some sort - any time one of them walked past our table, they asked if we were ok or if we needed anything. I probably talked to at least a half dozen of different servers tonight. The main course came out & was exemplary as well, not to mention timely. Let me be clear - the restaurant was 75% full tonight & we were in, WELL fed and out in less than an hour. I had no problem leaving a 20% plus tip.
If you held a firearm to my head and forced me to say something negative it would only be that the horseradish sauce that comes with the prime rib wasn't spicy enough for me, but that's coming from a guy who uses enough hot sauce on taco night to make myself sweat into my dish. This was the best dinner out that I've had in many moons. My thanks to Sayler's for their contribution to a great evening out with my son.
Thanks for your kind review. I wish I knew who your waitress was, so I could tell her good job. I'm glad you had a good time. Bryan Sayler
Great food Great service – We eat at Sayler's on the average of twice a month...sometimes every week over 40 miles round trip for us, but we have not found a better place or greater service. We had one bad dining evening..food was great waitress was HORRID. We went straight to the manager about half way through the meal and he switched servers immediately for us. We are going agin tonight...we were there last week...Ask for Linda M., Jill, Diana, Desi, or Coleen....they have all been there for over 10 years and are great!!!!
Bad experience – I've eaten at saylors for 20 years and had a great steak for all those years. We ate there last wednesday nite and had one of the worst dining experiences of my life.Started out by seating us in the ne corner next to a group of people I'd call the barbarians.The waitress couldn't get our order straight, the meal was lousy and I may never go back. What an ordeal.
You should call me, Bryan Sayler, at (503) 252-4171, to talk about it. You could have done that instead of posting a 1 star because of one bad experience out of 20 years of good experiences. I wonder if you ever went online after one of your great experiences and wrote a review. The waitress getting the order wrong, and the food being bad is not acceptable, but we can't always control who comes into our restaurant. Also, what was wrong with the food - overcook, undercook? I need to know so I can tell the cooks they messed up the Choice grade steak that I pay $6.00/lb. wholesale for. Bryan.
