Review of Lookout Steakhouse - CLOSED

Description: The after Katrina renovation of the Gulfport Historical District is an architectural gem. This restaurant is located in one of its beautiful old buildings, a prior bank, and the inside is the typical modern conversion: exposed bricks, high ceilings, large windows, smart decor and stylist tableware. The atmosphere is relaxed, spiffy, casual. The menu is extensive (beef/seafood) and interesting. As newcomers, we ordered the Cajun Pasta Supreme w/salad. Good food, great value, but what makes this place outstanding is the dedicated attention to detail - delicious hot bread, piping hot steak fries right from the fryer, a small salad with impeccable presentation with tomato relish and smoked Gouda to boot... Grand. And the service - a courteous, professional young waiter who anticipated our desires (good staff has this ability) and fulfilled them effective and expeditiously. Truly endearing. Places like this make our escapades from New Orleans to the Gulf beaches a true joy. Of course, we'll return

“Impressive Find”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Found this jewel thanks to a local casino. A featured restaurant with a discount coupon!
My wife & I have not been overly impressed with the restaurants in this area since the Katrina hurricane. This may be the find we were looking for! We visited mid-week, early afternoon.
Pros:
Ambitious menu without the pretentious prices.
Food was well prepared as we ordered, medium rare duck breast, medium rare prime rib sandwich for my wife..
Our waitress alllowed us time to make our selections without pressure and was attentive but not intrusive during the meal.
Ambiance is very nice in a casual atmosphere.
Food was very tasty and we would return when in the area.
Cons:
If you look up, you may see dust on the lines of the warming lights over the presentation area from the kitchen-please fix this- we want to love this place!

“Why go to a chain?”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great food, great location and great service. Don't worry if you have to wait because you can just step into one of the close by bars (Kilted Kelly's is my choice) and have a drink while you wait. The reason you may have to wait on a weekend night will become very clear when your food arrives. You can also have private parties upstairs overlooking the Gulf Coast.
