If you're expecting a fine-dining, white-tablecloth steak dinner, Tad's isn't for you. But if you are looking for a quick, reasonably priced, no-frills, yet tasty, steak dinner, definitely stop here! Tad's isn't much to look at inside. It is very open, almost cafeteria-like (except of...More

What the heck? Overpriced steak, taste like water. No taste at all, no sauce. The staff is NOT serviceminded. I will suggest Burgerking or MC donalds instead of this.

After having spent more money for breakfasts at other places, we saw Tad's and thought why not. The specials were large and well priced. Service was good. Would have come back for dinner, but only found it on our last day......

A group of coworkers and I went to Tad’s for breakfast before a conference and the food was delicious and fast. The sausage was really good and I hear the bacon is good too!

for around USD 16 to usd 18 you get a baked potato, salad, a bread and a large piece of salmon or broiled chicken. My workmates enjoyed the steak the most. Ambiance is nice, almost like a hotel although its just a steakhouse. USD2.00 for...More

Close to Union Square and the Powell and Market cable car terminus, this canteen style steak house does some really good food at limited cost - under $100 for 4 (no alcohol) is good for the city centre. The decor ain’t great and comfort levels...More
