McNamara's Steak and Chop House

McNamara’s is Located in the center of the TriValley. McNamara's Steak and Chop House (patterned after the famous chop houses in Chicago) is situated near the junction of Highway 580 and 680, less than three miles from Bishop Ranch and Hacienda Business Park. Surrounded by San Ramon, Pleasanton and Castro Valley, the restaurant is within minutes from Danville, Alamo and Livermore. If you're from out of town, McNamara’s is within two miles or less of most of the major hotels.

We serve only the finest hand selected Midwestern corn fed Angus beef, aged for a minimum of 21 days. All of our fish is delivered fresh daily. Our bread is hand crafted and baked fresh 7 days per week. Our award winning wine list features some of the finest wines available in California.

"After having dinner at McNamara's Dublin, CA in late December, we were told that they would be offering Sunday Brunch starting January 2016. Since all of us had such a great dining experience we decided to come back to try their Sunday Brunch last weekend. We were celebrating the birthday of one of the ladies in our group. Brunch was as good as the dinner we had in December. So many selections, you couldn't possibly try everything and the most wonderful Mango Mimosas. We are planning another birthday celebration for a family member in the next couple of weeks and will definitely be back to celebrate at McNamara's!"

"Servers were spread too thin, food was OK, but nothing to rave about, wine list was good and reasonably priced, menu was very good and reasonably priced. Ambiance was very good, if management gets more serious in the kitchen, more support and training for staff it could be a great place ."

"Service was very good. Ordered filet, was tough and doubt it was actually a filet. The other steak was ordered medium and was totally rare. On a positive note the manager comped one dinner and gave a free desert.
Have been to other McNamar's and rated them 4 Star."

"We went here for our forty year anniversary blevins the cost of food would also mean great food and service. I had babu back ribs and was quite dissatisfied. They smoother barbecue sauce which was cold and the rack as well was cold.my wife had lamb which she had to ask for mint jelly. She too was not satisfied.she also had a creme ofspinach bowl which she only tasted than left alone.
I should have gone with my gut when viewing all the reviews.
I will not go back or recommend this establishment.
BTW we live in Gilroy and reviews are important however what I saw was dated thinking perhaps they got better. Not a chance.

"Birthday dinner with husband, 14 year old and 8 year old. Delicious meal and great customer service. Had the raw oysters which were perfection. Kids ordered from the Smaller Plates (bar menu) and they loved it. Dessert is a must (break pudding and 6-layer chocolate cake). Highly recommend."

"Gave their new Sunday brunch a try, the very first weekend it was run. Food was excellent, selection could be improved, not enough choices at this point. Some minor technical issues for their first go (spoon at the bacon / sausage station instead of tongs?), but all in all, it's a good start. Not a lot of places locally to have a good brunch, so this is a welcome addition. Our feeling was however, that until the menu grows, if you aren't taking advantage of the bottomless Mimosa bar, the $35.00 per person fee feels a little pricey for what is provided."

"Our server was mostly attentative but very knowledgeable and informative about the meat on the menu. He was very friendly and actually talked to my kids and helped them out with dinner selections. The atmosphere was quiet and cozy even for New Years Eve. Food was excellent, my rib eye was cooked to perfection and my husband's prime rib melted in your mouth. I had a lemon drop which was superb and the chocolate decadent dessert was heavenly, not to rich. Not a place to go if you are in a hurry. The live piano music was a nice touch to the atmosphere."

"I had high hopes for a romantic New Year's Eve dinner, but was very disappointed. The steak was the worst I ever had and it was $38 a plate. I have a generous gift certificate and have no desire to use it or to ever return."

"I had always heard great things, but wow was this place underwhelming. My steak was cooked well (though a little overdone) but had almost no seasoning. The only thing saving it was the peppercorn sauce I ordered. Comments around the table were consistently "Eh, not bad I guess."
The worst part of this was the wine list. While it does look nice at first, the pricing up of some of their offerings is insane (2 separate bottles on the list at $70+ can be found at Safeway for $25).
Overall, I'm glad I went here, so I know what a real steakhouse isn't."

"The "prime aged" New York had the flavor and texture of a Safeway Select cut. On a steakhouse scale of 1-5 ( 1= Black Angus and 5= Ruths Chris) this is about a 2.
Sides were ok. Service was cordial. They did mess up the orders a few times.
Nice ambiance but not worth the near high-end steakhouse prices they were charging."

"McNamara's has an elegant, timeless steakhouse atmosphere. Steak and potatoes are highest quality and well prepared. Salads cold and crisp and vegetables are fresh. Service was very good and overall a great experience for a special occasion or just an excellent steak dinner."

"For the price, the food was mediocre. My daughter and I ordered the Filet mignon and it had absolutely no flavor. My husband ordered the Rib Eye (med rare) but sent it back because it came well done. We've given the restaurant 3 chances but we don't think we would be coming back. I would rather spend that $ at Bobo's in SF."
