About Double Nickel Steak House
In the 20th century times were simpler, dining out was reasonable, the service was excellent and cooking was an art. My staff and I have tried to capture that ambiance of simple elegance. Our traditional values extend even further: There are no heat lamps or microwaves in our kitchen. Everything comes to your table straight from the broilers and ovens - good and hot - the way it used to be. ~Lisa West~

My family and I wanted to celebrate my master's graduation with a dinner to fit the occasion. Making reservations was easy with their website. The service was impeccable and we were treated with smiles and respect. I had the filet mignon and I literally said it was the best steak I've EVER had, and I have had the fortune of eating at a number of fine dining steakhouses over the years. Everyone in my family commented that they really enjoyed their dining experience and I was complimented on choosing the Double Nickel for this special occasion. I would recommend this restaurant as the best dining experience in Lubbock.

Enjoyed the food and eventhough my steak was not quite done the first time, the staff was quick to make it right. The complimentary glass of champagne was an unexpected treat and our waitress was superb. She truly helped to make our anniversary dinner special.

It was all that is expected in a well run steakhouse.
We went here with friends to celebrate a birthday. Our steaks were prepared perfectly, and one of our diners ordered fish which she really enjoyed. Service was great (a tad slow but we were in no hurry). Great for a special occasion in Lubbock (bring your wallet)
A sure bet in Lubbocl
The Double Nickel is a traditional steakhouse that is a mainstay for business dinners and special occasions. The steaks are consistently good and I always enjoy the cheese toast. The wine list is pretty broad, but the prices seem a bit inflated. I had a hard time finding a high quality wine at a reasonable price, especially when they were out of my first choice.

The beef was excellent and the staff very friendly and accommodating. They had a very nice wine list and I was pleasantly surprised to see a wide range of wines for every taste. Will return every time I'm in Lubbock!

While the service was professional and the ambience was great (felt like something out of Mad Men) the value of the food for the price seemed mismatched. I had the filet, cream corn and snap peas, and the Double Nickel salad. All were good but most of the rest of my party had the ribeye. It was not the best quality cut for the price and one was a little grisly. I thought the snap peas were a little on the salty side, too.
Recently we went for anniversary dinner, the food is always outstanding and wonderful service!
Good food, good friends, a great evening
We all had the same entrée, so it is hard to determine if ALL the food is as great as ours. Small filets were still too much meat for some of us, but was just the best steak in Lubbock. Mine was a bit undercooked, but they took it back immediately and came back in less than 5 minutes with a perfect medium. We all enjoyed our meals tremendously.
You know when you order your steak rare and your waitperson asks, "cool or warm center?", you're in a place that knows their steaks. This place does. A bit pricey, bit great food and good wine selection. Very good service too.
Need A Broiler Cook
If you have a great cook you have no need for the servers to use a pin light not a flash light to see if your STEAK IS DONE to your liking !!!!!!!!!!!!! Had to send my steak back as did other customers in room had too!! Was a Broiler cook for many years and always cooked to the touch of the steak and never sent a pin light out with any of my steaks !!!!!!! And the cheese sticks were not cooked all the way through!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is an expensive place - $30 and up for steaks - but you'd never know it from how the staff are trained. Airport service. They don't know anything about wine. They took my plate away before I was finished - asked me if I was done eating only after the plate was already lifted off the table. Asked for a glass of wine and never got a taste to make sure I liked it - just brought the whole thing. Little things, sure. But they add up. And isn't that the whole point of a fine dining experience?

Have eaten here several times. Service is always great. Always have what we need at the bar. Food has always been amazing no matter what we order. We recommend this place to all our friends.
Getting somewhat old
Have dinned at this steak house several times over the years... with mixed experiences... mostly good! Unfortunately, the menu is getting a bit stale... nothing has changed in the past 8 years! And it's not what it used to be... Please update the menu... and loose the mozzarella cheese sticks that come with the entree's and remain completely out of place and unappetizing!

I waited for thirty minutes standing at the entrance beyond my reservation time. No apology. No "it'll just be a few minutes" Nothing. More than that there were vacant tables throughout the restaurant that the small line up could have been seated at. The food was fine, nothing memorable except that it was over priced. This is just a chain steak house restaurant pretending to be more.
excellent steak house in Lubbock
I went there for dinner with family for the first time during our last visit to Lubbock. I am very impressed with the service, but more than the service, the food was delicious and the quality of meat was excellent. I had the "Filet Kabob" which was tender, cooked perfect and tasted awesome along with the peppers, onion and the wine sauce!
Next time I will ask to hold
Next time I will ask to hold the pepper on the steak. Otherwise excellent!
We took my mother out for dinner the weekend before Christmas, and it was the perfect place! We made early reservations and enjoyed having the place practically to ourselves by the time our entrees arrived. Very nice! Our server was great!
Save room for dessert
Best steakhouse in Lubbock. Expect to spend about $100 per person. Save room for amazing dessert. The pecan bread pudding is a meal in itself and the bananas foster is as fun as it is tasty.
Myself and 3 business associates
Myself and 3 business associates had dinner at the Double Nickel on Saturday November 10, 2012. I ordered a ribeye, others ordered different steaks. My ribeye was the worst steak that I have been served in a restaurant outside of Mexico. Waiter(ess) seemed flustered when I complained, manager asked what I wanted to do . Replacement steak was better, not terrific. Business associates' steaks were satisfactory as was the rest of the food. Seems a little pricey for the quality of the food and the amateurish way that the problem was handled. Probably will not go there again.
Went to Double Nickel Saturday
Went to Double Nickel Saturday night after Tx vs. Tech game. Had reservation for 8:15,they went ahead and seated us at 7:00. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how GOOD the NY strip steak was that we split. No way could either of us eaten it by ourselves. Sides were also plentiful and excellent. We live in Amarillo and we may make a special trip to Lubbock just to eat there again!!!
Needs improved wine list
Needs a much-improved wine list! Servers did not know their wine nor the years. One visit took me over 35 minutes to find a decent wine.
This was our first time dining
This was our first time dining there. The service was great and so was the food. I would rccomend for a special occasion
Probably best steak house
Probably best steak house in Lubbock. Steak cuts good be better grade. Waiter was inexperienced.
Definitely our favorite steak
Definitely our favorite steak place in Lubbock. Having moved to west TX from Houston, we really miss all of the food choices. The Double Nickel has very good steaks and the staff are always friendly. It's also one of the only options in Lubbock for fresh seafood. The seafood selections are very limited, but beggars can't be choosers.
Food was amazing! Steaks is
Food was amazing! Steaks is incredible and ambiance is very romantic!
Details, details, details
For a place that hypes itself one of the best "independent" steakhouses, it has a long way to go. Its closer to the quality level of a chain place like Outback. In a bigger city with more high-end choices, it wouldn't survive (my wife and I don't live in Lubbock). True greatness shows in the details. Our menus both had different choices/prices. Waiter was switched. Salads drowned in dressing. Bread never came without multiple reminders. Sauteed mushrooms tasted sour. The steaks, fortunately, were very good but not served with advertised accompaniments, but a huge lump of bland julienned vegetables instead. Maybe they were off their game on this Wednesday night. Or maybe they aren't truly great. Neither is an acceptable outcome for my money.
We were so impressed with
We were so impressed with the bartender who dealt so well with an obviously intoxicated patron. She was loud & annoying, and he was very kind to her and put up with her constant jabber. We'd also like to thank the staff for providing us with dessert because of this distraction to our evening. Very impressed, and we'll definitely be back!
Fabulous place, atmosphere,
