just came back from there with a couple friends...yeah! a decent steak place!

it's not nyc good, but it's better than outback, or many other places up here, so i'm happy. here's the more complete description.

it's 1/4 mile east of adams, on the same side of the road, on route 44. opens m-f at 4 pm, i forget when it opens sat / sunday. it's in an old house, but nicely done up - fireplace, etc. many waitstaff waiting to serve (unfortunately, there were only 2 tables of customers when we left).

we started with a crawfish appetizer, with remoulade sauce. very non-descript and bland fish, sauce was so-so. served with fresh (and warm) bread.

the meals were quite good. one was an 8 oz filet mignon, nicely tender and cooked to spec. this came with a HUGE potato (the waitress said these were 'small' and it was still jumbo, like the nyc streetcard vendor size potatoes) topped with cheese and bacon...caesar salad (decent) came as well.

another was a ribeye steak, again wonderfully cooked to spec, with onion rings/french fries. the third was a chicken/rib combo, extremely tasty. the waitress brought out a server with hot water to cleanthe hands (after the ribs).

ny cheesecake (with a saucy line, apple flavored) completed things, and was top notch.

they aren't serving in the ny style 'sides a la carte'.

oh, prices...filet mignon 21, rib eye 19, chicken/rib 17? cheesecake 4...they also had a fair selection of other southern style dishes, like a jambalaya, some shrimp dishes, etc. enough there that a person who couldn't handle spicy stuff had no problem choosing.
