We always ask the locals where to eat while in town. One of the store clerks in town recommended The Grubsteak. When we arrived, a couple was coming out of the restaurant. We asked them how it was. They said it was delicious and highly...More

I would highly recommend this place. We have eaten there several times and it is very good each time. Not much to look at as far as decor.....but don't let that stop you.

Stopped here for lunch after hiking - yummy burgers and can upgrade to other types of meat (bison, elk, etc). A little pricy but expected in a touristy town. Everyone left full and happy!

Nice, family friendly, consistently good food, nice outdoor covered section. For a simple, good meal this is a great choice. On Elkhorn Avenue, but plenty of parking behind in the public lot and a delightful walk across Fall River as a bonus.

Went there for dinner and was looking for a good steak dinner. We both got the ribeye which was cooked right but lacked in flavor. We can grill one better. But the potatoes were delicious. They do not serve bread or a salad with the...More

We decided to give this place a try. Saw here on TripAdvisor that the Yak burger was good-it was phenomenal!! No wait - the staff were fun. The bartender gal - long blonde hair - was not only a great bartender, but she was great...More

I don't have a clue. I suggest you call the restaurant and get the first hand scoop on their MSG usage.
