Sherman Room (van nuys) really good on Saturday

I know this place is not for all -but- if you are looking for a good price steak, this is a great place.

I am a HUGE fan of "blue hair" type restarants and bars. This place fits the bill perfectly.

One waitress "Sally" is like 85 years old and has no problem telling you how you should be ordering your meat.

We went on Satruday at about 8pm. Not too busy. We were early so we hung out at the bar speaking to wonderful locals. The bartender was mixing some of the best livations I have had in a Loooong time. He makes the best bloody-mary I have ever had, a special hand mixed worchestershire sauce, tomato juice and a toothpick dipped in a secret habanero sauce, just magnificent.

We all had beef in some manner.
I had a 'petit' sirloin medium-rare, it had the perfect amount of char and good flavor. $10.95

The MRS. had an old fashioned treat. Ground sirloin smothered in onions and mushrooms 'well-done' $9.95 - She LOVED it

Our friends had the filet's medium rare $17.95. They were both happy, one of them devoured the filet in about 6 minutes, the other was kinda picking at his.

All dinners here come with bread, salad (or soup) and potato (or fries) which I love. It gets old going to the upscale steak places and paying $45 for a bare plate, sometimes I wish they would just incorporate some sides in the prices.

Ambience, no, not really but if you are a fan of the 'old/tacky/kitchsy feel' then there is tons of ambience. Right down to the fake fire in the fireplace and wood paneled walls.

This place also only allows 21 and over - although I have a 3 year old, I welcome a no kids restaurant here and there.

It's not ruth/arnies/or mastros but it's not trying to be either.
