      I used to eat here when I was younger but I understand it has changed hands.

      Went back a few months ago and it veered on nearly inedible. The Chi Chis and Mai Tais are super cloyingly sweet. I'd order something standard like Scotch or similar.

      Keep it very simple. FWIW the ribeye was disgusting. It's covered in tiny gbreasy onion rings like the ones in the can. I had to dig down to get to the steak and it had a horrible sauce on it I did not request.

        Stick to drinks. kitchy decor is fine, but the food is not.

          It's sad to hear that Damon's gone so far downhill. The steaks and other food they served used to be pretty good. They also had a decent burger. But I haven't been there in a long time.

          A drink and a telephone to make a reservation at Morton's in Burbank.

            OK, I think I will save my meat intake and go elsewhere.

              Damon's petite filets are as tasty as anywhere else mentioned, IMHO...the early bird
              special is even a greater deal....Prime rib is as good as any, and the Monday Prime rib
              special is a real bargain....And the menu prices include: soup or salad, bread,
              potato, stuffed baked or fries.....not the "al a carte hosing" that other steak houses
              administer.

                Weekdays you can dine their REALLY cheaply with the restaurant.com deal.

                Haven't been for about a year, but had a steak n shrimp special...the steak was good and the shrimp were the best I've had anywhere in years. Yum! We were sorry to see them take the Luau Lager off the menu, though.

                Stick to cocktails.. Food is not great.. If you want good steak go to Taylor's in La Canada.

                  Thanks everyone for discouraging from Damon's. Last night we had a delightful dinner at Palate Food and Wine.

                  Strongly remember the Tenderloin. We get it butterflied.

                  Very tender and great flavor.
