Old Station Steak House(?)

July 29th, 2008


Riding my bike by the (now open) Old Station Steak House, I decided to stop in and asked to look at a menu to see what it was like.
The girl at the host stand said they just have a buffet, no menu, so I asked if I could look and although I’m not an expert in the cuisine, it seemed to be similar to Brazilian buffet items I have seen in the past.
Nothing against Brazilian food, and the girl at the host stand was very nice but I was looking forward to something we don’t already have several of downtown already. I will eventually come here to review but just thought people may want to know before they go down thinking they can order a steak.

  1. Me, I joked about Brazilian food to a certain extent but in all honestly, I know where you’re coming from.

    It’s a shame. I love right by the station and it looks like a good building, but we do have tons of Brazilian restaurants all over downtown.

    I mean, I can count four off the top of my head that aren’t far from this restaurant.

    I thought that they might actually be a kind of upscale steak restaurant, like I might have to at least dress business casual to go in and sit down, which would have been kind of bad, but not really.

    And it’s such a good location…..

    Oh well. I’ll wait for your review and do not hold back.

  2. The above should read:

    “I live right by the station”

  4. It looked like it opened up on Friday night. All the spots in the little lot were full. I did see a banner advertising the buffet (and they had it translated in to Brazilian Portugeuse). I’m disappointed. I guess I’ll have to keep going to Route 9 and the Met in the Mall. A cool after work spot with a steakhouse bar would have been awesome on Friday nights.

    I was going to say the same thing.
    So in that case….bring back Ebeneezers!

  6. Dissapointed myself — I assumed it would be a sit down, independent steak house a la Ken’s… I like Brazilian food but we didn’t need another option — give me a nice porterhouse!!

  7. Oh MAN I am SOOOO disappointed! πŸ™ I too was looking forward to a real steak house – talk about false advertising.

    Do they not have a menu yet because they don’t think they are going to survive there? I give it about 6 months and SEE YA!

    Very sad, can’t wait to hear your review so I know whether or not to bother.

  9. i think the old station steak house started off at a good foot until buisness started geting slower and slower. they have saposinally an owner named Marcio. I found that whene i went to go eat their he was very ruied and did not seat us peoperlly.After we got pointed to our seat i waited five minuetes for my watress to come and take my oder for my drink. I got a watress and get this she didnt speak ENGLISH her name was rosie. And then over heard a fight about their tips. their was two female waitress arguing about their amount in tips. I dont know i think this place needs to get their feet back on the ground and focus on their buisness.

  12. I went there my first night back in Framingham. VERY disappointed. I went in expecting to order a big, bloody steak, was told I was out of luck, asked why I couldn’t order STEAK at a STEAH HOUSE, and then left before I could get an answer. Off to Ken’s I went.
