47 Port Street -review -St. Louis (in Ameristar Casino)

Captain Asparagus | Dec 6, 2003 02:25 PM

Have eaten here several times. I would have to say this is one of the best Restaurants in St. Louis. Definitely in the top 10. Maybe the top 5. It has a few "Best in St. Louis" items also. This place isn't advertised so I doubt many have ever heard of it.
If you think casino food is terrible you're very wrong.
This place is great. Mostly steaks. Lamb shops too. All prime. Generous portions. Chicken and fish also. A fish special every night. Not cheap though.
Most entrees are about $25- to $30-. But, they come with a small mixed green dinner salad, with excellent
dressing, and two sides. The sides range from a large piece of broccoli with hollandaise or creamed spinach, to some very good potatoes. Mashed, baked, baked with blue cheese, maybe another. They also have a sweet potato with a brown sugar butter sauce that's worth trying.
Sauces like béarnaise or bordelaise are no charge and are great for putting on the food. The ice tea is the best in St. Louis. The cubes are made from frozen ice tea, so, as they melt, the tea doesn't get watered down. A little on the strong side, but I like it like that. The bread plate is also the best in St. Louis. A big selection and everything is great. Tastes like they make it there. Be careful though or you won't have room for desert, which are the best deals here. #1 is the warm chocolate lava cake, with ice cream. It is delicious. Tell them you want extra ice cream. When you cut it warm chocolate runs out of it. Very good chocolate too. Not too sweet. Goes very well with the ice cream. The cream brule is very good. A huge portion. Big enough to split.
I usually get the ribeye. I ask them to char the fat on it too. It's great. Surf and turf is good. A huge grilled lobster tail with an excellent fillet on the side. You get a little heated butter thing too.
The dinner size cesaer salad goes good with it all.
I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. It's a leisurely pace, dinner takes about 2 hours, but the room is nicely done, and the people who work there are very professional. Best of all, the dress code is casual. Blue jeans are ok. I've taken several friends here. They all agree with me. This place is great. On the way out stop and check out the fountain. Reservations are probably a good idea.
