This popular steakhouse in Long Beach features an array of tender flavorful cuts of beef as well as some fresh seafood selections. The menu is not very extensive or inventive, but if it’s a traditional steakhouse you’re looking for, this restaurant is probably for you. I wouldn’t really call myself a steak lover unless it has a special sauce or seasoning. 9 out of 10 times I’ll choose fish over beef. In this case the trout special with garlic mashed potatoes, green beans and maple bourbon sauce appealed to me much more than a slab of steak with a choice of potato. The trout was cooked to perfection, the sauce was very flavorful, and the mashed potatoes were creamy. I did try a bite of my boyfriends “prime culotte” and although it was tender, I was really happy I went with the fish. We both finished every bite of our meals, but there didn’t seem to be a wow factor from the steak, which is their main selling point.
The atmosphere was pretty casual for a steakhouse, which was great because I was with my aunts and uncle so we were chatting a lot. The service was on par and our server even gave us some New England Clam chowder samples since we were from Boston. It actually had a lighter broth than what is usually found in Boston chowder, but I really liked it. I would definitely go here again, but since I’m such an adventurous eater, I definitely appreciate restaurants that offer more inventive menu options.
