For a place that claims to be a steak house, you would think that they would specialize in steak, and that it would be the star of the menu; That the steak you would get from there would be pefect and delectible.
Well, not the case once again. I was just as disappointed here as with the new Texas Roadhouse we got here. Their steak was mediocre at best, not good cuts, too heavily seasoned, and not presented correctly as to the menu pictures. I got the bacon and chedder "stuffed" fillet, which in the picture shows the center removed and actual cheese and bacon bits running out of the steak when cut into. What I got was a fatty piece of meat (I have never once seen a fillet with fat on it, so this was NOT a fillet as adversized, probably a sirloin) with some cheese and bacon sitting on top of it. I thought I got the wrong thing because there is also a very similar (and $5 cheaper) item right below it on the menu which is the chedder and bacon sirloin, but the waitress told me that it was correct. She told me that this is how they make it, that they open up the meat and put in the cheese and bacon and that it bubbles out when it's cooked. That's [--]! There was no evidence of this piece of meat ever being stuffed, it just has cheese thrown on top. The meat was tender and cooked ok, but it was def not fillet which I was very disappoined with since that is what I paid for. My wifes steak was also overseasoned and cooked the same way. It was ok but not great.
The 2nd problem, is that the waitress was not very organized. After they brought the food out, my plate came with green beans on it even though I had orderd a baked potato. She came back over and said "oh I'm sorry but we are out of potatoes", are you freaking kidding me??? You are a steak house, and you run out of potatoes, the main thing that a steak is paired with? And somhow the waitress didn't know about it until after the food came out? I would think that if they were truely out of something that they would communicate that at the time of ordering. However, my wife got her potato and I asked well she got one, and the waitress said yes that was the last one and that I can pick any other side I wanted. I didn't want any other side, that is why I ordred a potato. Meanwhile I'm thinking there is a supermarket and a walmart accross the street, you guys need to go buy some potatoes. I told her since they already decided to substitute my side for me as green beans that I will keep those. Then she came back a couple minutes later with my potato and appologized, like it's a miracle they found one! What a joke.
The only thing this place has going for it, are the appetizers and desserts which actually looked good. I got the fried parmesan asparagus, which was good but poorly executed. You would think by the name that the asparagus would be breaded with parmesan but they weren't. They had a very light tempura batter on them, most of it was falling off, and then a pile of shaved parmesan pieces was just thrown on top. So in order to get the cheese taste I had to take a bite of the asparagus and then grab a pinch of the cheese and throw it in my mouth at the same time which is stupid, but still tasted good. This dish was poorly thought out, and it also needed more batter.
The stuffed mushrooms were very good, but just drenched with so much cheese that you couldn't even see the mushroom. It was basically like just eating a blob of cheese.
I didn't get a dessert because I was full, but they have some that looked very good. I think I will come back next time for dessert only and skip the meal. I won't be coming back here for steak because they don't know what it is.
