I avoid places that seem more geared towards couples, and Parkside was in that category for quite a while.
When I visited on a lark one day, I learned of a special (available every day, I believe, but whatever), including steak, a salad, and a side, for $8 no less!
Quite skeptical, I ordered it. It was fantastic. Perfectly medium-rare, and the baked potato fresh and fluffy. The salad was excellent as well.
I've been back several times now, different servers each occasion, all but one quite adequate.
