Double Nickel Steakhouse Reviews
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience overall. We were greeted as soon as we entered, and we notice the place had a low light atmonphere with some Jazz in the background. A perfect start for a birthday dinner celebration. Once we sat on the table we waited a litttle too much for the waiter to come and ask for drinks. He gently filled the cups with water and asked for our drinks. We ordered two drinks; however, one came first and the other one came 5 minutes later. First mistake, please make sure you bring the drinks at the same time, that way none of us has to wait, and we can toast together.
We ordered the beef points as appetizers, they were delicious! The sauce was amazing. Then, We decided to share the New York Strip for two au poivre (pepper sauce) – If you like pepper you must try it!
I ordered a baked potatoe and asparagus for n my sides, and my girlfriend ordered Loaded baked potatoe and cream corn.
The presentatioj of the plates was amazing. The waiter served a plate with the sides first, and then he brought a wooden board with the steak. He cut the steak in pieces and then served to the pieces to the plates.
The steak was cook te perfection – medium. However, We both feel the sides were not hot – especially the potatoes. They were hard and not soft and fluffy. They were undercooked, it seems the plates were outside for too long just waiting for the steak to finish cooking.
That didnt bother us though, the flovor of the steak could outshine any judgement of the sides.
We ordered a couple more drinks, but only one came. Then we ordered the mandarin orange cake for dessert. Before arrival, the waiter kindly removed the crumbs and place new spoons for us. After a.couple minutes, the waiter brought the cake, and it was delicious! Very moist and flavorful – just perfect to switch to a sweet flavor.
Now comes the check.
Well, even though it was a good experience we feel it was overpriced. When you pay $75 for a Stake it’s not anymore about how good the steak taste. You are also paying for excellent service with the best sides the kitchen can cook. And we honestly feel there is room for improvement.
I will give a chance to this place again. It has been the best service we have had in West Texas.
I was able to join the Lubbock Area Sisters on the Fly for a wonderful dinner at the Double Nickel. Such an elegant setting and delicious food. I can’t wait to come back to Lubbock soon.
I really enjoyed dining at this swanky restaurant. Our server, Anthony, provided a top-notch service for our evening meal. Gave us some great recommendations in selections for our meal. My sister and I decided to have the 22oz steak for two and it came with two sides each. Per the suggestion of Anthony, we both ordered the spinach which had parmesan cheese on top and we also each ordered bake potatoes. She had a pomitini and I had a glass of Moscato, it was good. With all we had ordered, it was a lot and couldn’t finish all but it was all so delicious. Enjoyed this place very much!
I LOVE the food at Double Nickel. I usually always have to have the Lobster Bisque. It’s top notch. I only go two or three times a year and I typically go to celebrate my birthday with my best friend. Yesterday was one of those days and the lobster bisque didn’t disappoint. Also, shared a shrimp cocktail and that was fairly good. I would have stayed for the main course and ordered more dishes but I was rather taken aback by something that I’ve never experienced before. I asked our waitress if the bartender could make me a mock-tail, as my friend and I have been on a sober journey for years. I have never had a restaurant with a full service bar deny or not even give the option of any mocktail. Our waitress went to ask the bartender and she said they couldn’t make mocktails. Not even a Shirley Temple was I offered… I found this rather strange and honestly it did sour the evening a bit and we went elsewhere. If this is truly the case, I urge you all to reconsider at some point in the future. If I’m celebrating an occasion, I’d like to have something to drink that looks pretty. Either way, thank you for the amazing food. Hopefully, in the near future, I will dine in with you all again and I will always recommend you all.
It was a great experience! The staff was nice and the food was amazing! The food was still really hot when being served, and had awesome flavor.
Best steak in Lubbock and a fantastic wine selection. Lovely atmosphere that definitely feels like you are out of town. Dress up, or don’t…no one seems to really care, it is Lubbock after all. Just don’t wear your hat inside or you will be asked to remove it…which upsets a lot of people who try to wear their cowboy hats at the dinner table. But who does that, anyway? Hats are not to be worn inside, especially not at the table…anyone who’s ever served in the military or any actual cowboy knows that. Didn’t your momma teach you nothing?
Excellent food and service. Monday night had an excellent guitarist, an unexpected treat. Steaks are best in Lubbock and atmosphere is elegant. It is pricey but worth it!
We have dinner at the Double Nickel about twice a year. I have to say, we have never been disappointed. Service is great, the food is great, the cream corn is awesome, but the orange cake, I have no words to describe it, other than FREAKING AWESOME!
The food is very overpriced was a bit of a letdown given how much I was looking forward to it. The steak had a weird taste that did not sit well with me which led me and my boyfriend to get sick. I started feeling it in the restaurant where I (embarrassingly) threw up in the dining room. I knew this wasn’t a fluke as my boyfriend had a debilitating stomach ache the next day. When we asked for a partial refund, they refused because the liar of a waiter denied seeing it happen. He had to clean the table after all! Secondly, the administration lied that they never saw my embarrassing accident on CCTV. It was most certainly there. It hurts knowing that I used some of my graduation money on a dinner here thinking it would be impressive dining and top-of-the-line service. I wouldn’t be writing this review or telling all of my friends to avoid this place like the plague if we were treated well by the management. Go to La Sirena or West Table instead for a kind, upbeat staff, and great food. I have to say my money would’ve been better spent at the Fuddruckers next door.
Best part of the meal was dessert. Was not impressed overall with the food. House salad was just sliced tomato, egg, and romaine lettuce- could be higher end. Salmon was a bit dry, but my husband enjoyed his steak. Overall felt it could be nicer for the hype.
