Five of us were pleased with dinner at the DeLand Stockyard.
Our experience started with a shared "onion loaf" appetizer. We generally thought it was much better than the "blooming onion" served at other restaurants. These onions were very thinly sliced, coated with batter and served in the shape of a loaf pan. It did not seem greasy, just crispy. We may like "bloomin onion" at other locales. Onions are thicker and they are more greasy.
Three of five diners had prime rib...in varying degrees of "doneness". All were pleased. Although all ordered the 12-ounce size, it was more than enough for seniors and doggie bags were taken home.
The fourth diner had the top sirloin entree, approved of the way it was cooked, and took some home. It was rated as a 10-ounce piece of meat.
The fifth diner liked the seafood chowder as an appetizer, He had a pecan-corn-flake-crusted chicken entree.
The side dishes (two per entree) were good.
Two slips were noted, but did not deter much from the total dining experience. Bread and butter were promised with all entrees, but never arrived. We were devouring the onion loaf and mostly did not miss any additional bread. The menu stated that something called "Texas bread pudding" came with each prime rib entree. It sounded different and interesting, but did not arrive on any dinner dish.
No room to sample dessert. Glasses of house wine (white zin and merlot) were reasonably priced.at $4 a glass.
