The Ore House is one of the betterSteak Houses in the area. Good ribeye and Filet choices. Their meals are in the higher price range but the quality is good. I would go back

Ribeye and flat iron steaks were fabulous, and the loaded baked potato with bacon and hatch chiles was so delicious I could have made it my meal! Not to be missed was the Caesar salad with polenta croutons and avocado! Excellent meal!

This is a top notch steakhouse. It is expensive, but it's worth it. My wife and I have dined at the Ore House many, many times over the years, and have always been impressed with the service, wine list, and excellent steaks cooked to our liking.

It's nothing fancy but good food and prepared pretty "safely". I think that is what I liked about it the best. Most of the food seems pretty healthy. The steaks are awesome and then you have to pay separately for sides. I actually got some asparagus and mushrooms and it was okay. Like I said, they were prepared "safely" --... More

After hearing so many reviews, we decided to give this spot a shot. I am so happy to report that we loved the food. My T-bone was cooked to perfection (medium rare). Add the sautéed mushrooms for a great flavor addition. This restaurant has an old feel to it. Seemed to be busy for the entire evening dinner rush. This... More
