Amazing white table cloth restaurant. Colleague and I went here on recommendation of another colleague living in the area. So glad we did. Upon walking in, the old saloon style dark wood and reds hit you as you may feel like you have stepped back in time. The hostesses were able to seat us right away without the dinner crowd yet arrived. Full attention to detail here, from spotless wine glasses (inspected as they are put on the tables) to the presentation of food. The simplicity of the table struck me right away, besides the setting for each person, there was a water glass and a wine glass…but only the salt and pepper remained. No candles, no over the top arrangement, just the salt and pepper. Our server, Steve, was exceptionally well versed in the food as we asked and he answered. Upon hearing we were from out of town, he gave us the spiel over the menu and the story of the restaurant. We were warned that it was a $50 – 60/person dinner and there was no getting around that. Bread was brought out with our salads. It wasn’t more than a few minutes later for our steaks. Hand cut from the finest pieces of meat around. 12 oz Ribeye was perfectly cooked, sealing in all the flavor with a melt in your mouth texture. Asparagus was some of the biggest stalks I have ever seen, lightly salted but grilled to perfection ( the only disappointment there was only 4 stalks). Whipped potatoes were light and fluffy. Then there was this thing….what I thought looked like a fried breadstick…was actually fried cheese! Can we all say yum! We had to ask Steve about the fried cheese, like what is the story with this. He gave us a laugh then proceeded to tell us that the owner also had a burger joint down by Texas Tech campus and that was the big deal there. More fried cheese please!
We motioned for the manager to tell him what a great place this was and how the attention to detail was exquisite. Lamar agreed, was very grateful, and we discussed the burger place in town a little more. He also helps out there. We went the next day for lunch (Spanky’s).
Overall, anyone who wants an amazing steak, great atmosphere with a separate full bar and space for private parties, this IS the place in Lubbock.
