Steak and Ale

sandlapper | Jul 5, 2005 11:57 AM

For the first time in quite a while, my wife and I wound up at our local Steak & Ale for dinner on Saturday evening (we had started out to a new, local place which as it turned out was closed for the July 4th weekend).
Anyway, I had the Kensington Club (their signature marinated sirloin) and my wife had the 6oz Filet Mignon. These were undoubtably the worst, flavorless steaks we had ever eaten. They were almost like steaks that were frozen and prepared in a microwave!
I continually put salt and pepper on mine trying to add flavor, but to no avail.
What's with Steak & Ale? Have they really fallen that far down? It was a long time since we were there but won't be going back. Absolutely AWFUL!!!!!
Anyone had any similar experience?
