We didn't get there early enough, but the lobby bar looked like a great place to have a before dinner drink and people watch. Maybe next time.*
Always the best steak in town. Just a few comments from us. We would suggest that you make reservations and ask for a specific area of the restaurant for your seating. You can do this at Opentable.com or by calling the restaurant*. There are two or three choices: the back of the room just inside the entrance and behind the cashier, the front of the room closer to any live music and salad bar or the front side for more intimate dining. All seating is good. It just depends on your personal preference.
*If you call, you can find out if there is an event at the Verizon Arena and the best time to beat the crowd.
Be sure and take advantage of the free valet parking. It's worth it. At peak times a place to park is had to find.
How can you fault the food and service? You can't. . .both are first rate. However, a word from the wise. If you are ordering a fillet, find out if it is a thick or thin cut. I ordered mine cooked "Medium". It was well done because it was a thin cut. It was still tender, but I would have preferred "Medium" Where as Chuck ordered his "Medium" and it was perfect because it was a thick cut.
The menu is "ala carte". The baked potato was perfect. (We split it because we just can't eat a whole potato anymore.) I ordered Sautéed Fresh Asparagus - Served with Hollandaise Sauce. I would not order it again. . .just don't think it was worth the extra cost. I might try the Sautéed Fresh Wild Mushrooms next time*.
*Chuck put his card in the bowl for a free dinner for two. We are counting on being lucky. We are ready to go again.
Happy 25th Anniversary!
We eat out a lot. We eat at home and we eat out in Arkansas, our home state. We eat out for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We eat out for special occasions. We eat out when we are on the road whether a "day" trip or across country to see our two daughters and two grandchildren. Come Join Us on our Travels at http://arkeatsout.blogspot.com/
