Beefmastor Inn - Wilson, NC
Any recent visits?
Friends tried it for the first time in Nov. and were not happy. I couldn't really get much info and our restaurant preferences often are at odds. :-D
Would love to hear about recent experiences. Hoping the quality is still the same!
Went about a month ago, after not having been in several years. It's under new ownership since last visit... suffice it to say things have definitely changed, and not for the better.
Steak quality was sub-par compared to previous visits and staff attitude sucked.
Will not be back.
I've heard the former owner has opened a place in / around Greenville, NC, but don't know if that's true. If it is, and I find the place I will give it a try. One thing is certain, it can't be much worse than his former place in Wilson.
Too bad. I'm not aware of any new steak places opening in Greenville, but I've been busy and haven't read the Reflector in a while so could have missed something.
I was going to eat at the Beefmastor a couple of months ago on the way home from Rembrandt, but the wait was really long and we were starving and didn't feel like waiting.
Awwww no! I hate to hear about Beefmastor's sad decline. I lived in Wilson in the mid-90's and it was fabulous - although my hoity toity manager at the time (who considered himself 'better than' since he lived in Raleigh) always grimaced when it was suggested for a corporate dinner - "... oh, Beefmastor? The place where you can get a ribeye, ...or, a ribeye... or a RIBEYE?" Snob. ;)
