This was a favorite of my childhood in the 70's and 80's and I went there today after many years. They still had my favorites and today I ordered the two of a kind steak with baked potato, derby style with coleslaw. It was delicious and I love the tender steak. The charcoal style is equally good.

Went to S and S today for brunch. Brunch was very good. Food was served quickly, was hot and portions generous. What really made the visit was our waitress , Gladys. She was spectacular ! She was running all morning but was so kind and helpful and attentive , it made our morning. Fantastic service !

Steak and Stein had a ton of options for food at great prices. Atmosphere was good, friendly staff, they were quick with taking our order and answering any questions about the menu. I had the Stein burger and fries that were beer battered. The burger was huge and the fries were really yummy - dipping sauce came with as well.... More

Local brought me here and very happy with experience. Full menu of many items, steaks, burgers, pasta etc. I had the Hot Hamburger and loved it. Meat was good quality, very tasty and came with potatoes and fresh vegs (appeared as such anyway) and very nice gravy. Waitress was very attentive, she knew my friend as frequent customer. Far better... More

For the prices Steak & Stein is a good option. You get a lot of food for your money and the quality is generally pretty good. I had a 1/2 rack of ribs with corn bread and a side salad and that provided a lot of food for one. The steaks were a little on the thin side for my... More

I saw a sign for 7.99 steak lunch and had to try it Was not disappointed. A tasty steak and fries hit the spot. A small steak, but exactly what i wanted. The fries were great too.

I use to come here all the time with my family but it seems over the last year the steaks taste different, much more gristle and just overall not a nice cut of meat. That hasn't stopped the prices from going up tho. There is way better options close by now for the same price. Sad this use to be... More

Although it seems to be popular , I have been going off and on for years , and really wouldn't call it a true steakhouse . The steaks are very thin , there is usually quite a bit of gristle and it can seldom be served medium rare , or rare because of these reasons .They use frozen fries and... More

This has been a landmark in the Portland area for eons. Steak and eggs are fantastic and great for brunch. Recommended for families and a nice brunch. Make reservations though it can get busy
