I'm kinda tossed up about this place. I ordered their on the menu and "featured" Black and Blue Ribeye. Which I assumed meant cooked black and blue. But the guy asked how I wanted my steak cooked. To which I replied umm black and blue. I guess rare (after all this is corpus, no one knows how to cook anything here) So Out comes a rare steak. Which is fine, but maybe I'm spoiled, but I'm not sure why you ask how do you want your black and blue steak cooked.
Anyway, lets back up, The didn't quite set themselves up for a wait. Because there is no room to wait. They have a fancy bar, (you've probably seen it on those bank commercials). It's one of the better looking restaurants in corpus. Really trying to be trendy. Got seated right away ordered appetizers, which was some chicken fried calamari coating with some sort of Asian sauce. IMO big swing and a miss. (not terrible, just not my cup of tea). Salad sucked, Just ice berg and some sort of leafy lettuce, ranch. Bla bla bla.
The steak came out, I've already discussed my confusion with that. That being said, they had some rub on it, and their Gorganzola butter dollop was pretty tasty. Cut was on the thin side, but they did say 10 oz or 12 oz so I knew it wasn't gonna be an inch thick steak. (one of the reason's I don't really mind that it wasn't really black and blue, it was too thin to do a proper black and blueing)
Not how I cook it, but their flavoring was tasty. I don't know if I'd really wanna put it on a quality piece of meat. You kinda lose the flavor of the meat. It wasn't over salty (an amazing thing for corpus) And the bake potato was a baked potato. (that being said, it was TINY, but I was pretty dang full and never finish the potato anyway)
Anyway, I guess overall, I'd eat there again, as long as I'm not paying. I'd do Texas Road house for 5 dollars less I'd get the same steak. There weren't any huge negatives, probably wouldn't do the same thing again, maybe I'll try the quail next time. But once again, if I wanna steak that blows my mind, I just gotta do it myself... But It's better than most places in corpus.
