The Place To Go For Steak. There's a reason why Shula's steaks consistently rank among the best in the country. They start with the most wonderful beef, of course. But what I love most about their steaks is that they know how to cook them. When is the last time someone offered to cook for you "medium plus" - and then checked it table-side with a flashlight?! It's also a lovely and comfortable atmosphere. It reminds me of the nice dining room in the country club my parents belonged to. You should know which fork to use first for sure, but any collared shirt and khakis will suffice. I would call the atmosphere "casual elegance". A trendy catchphrase maybe, but very accurate in this instance. Everything is a la carte. And it's not inexpensive, but it is worth it. The side choices are very traditional, but elevated by their outstanding preparation. My daughters love the crab mac & cheese. The Ahi tuna appetizer is exceptional - simple, basic beautifully presented, and cold enough, which can be hard to find. The crab cakes are another Don't Miss - way more crab than cake. I also like to mop up their delicious creamed spinach with the wonderfully warm and soft rolls that come with every meal. Save room for dessert. The triple crème brûlée is to die for, served in three mini ramekins in three flavors; traditional vanilla, Grand Marnier, and Godiva chocolate - oh yeah. And of course, there is the unparalleled service. Everyone staff member is a seasoned professional. Miss Patricia, the lovely Hostess, will see that you are well seated and well treated. My favorite waiters are Ms. Pat and Mr. Rene, both of whom always maintain their consummate professionalism while making you feel like an old friend after just a few visits. There is a reason why people keep coming back. From the upscale sports photography on the walls and gentle lighting to the skilled bartenders and excellent wine list, Shula's will not disappoint. This place is old school, unpretentious and traditional steakhouse dining. I give it five stars, because six are not available.
