How do Steak Houses get away with it?

tunapet | Feb 13, 2014 03:29 PM

This has been bugging me for years and I figured this would be a great place to get an explanation..Can anyone explain to me how Steak houses get away with charging the ridiculous prices that they do for sides? I get paying top dollar for a great piece of meat.. ( I do...really!) ...In this case $38.00 bucks and that's in NH ( for those that were wondering). . Charging $7.00 for a baked potato!!??!, ... $8.50 for creamed spinach?...it's freaking potato and spinach!!! I get it ( somewhat) for say...Potato Au Gratin...there is some work to getting this dish together.. And extra for a sauce to compliment the steak? Come on!? It makes me feel that management must be in the back howling with laughter. I can't imagine ( well I can and the image sends me into a fit of giggles) ordering..say the halibut at a seafood restaurant and all that arrives on my plate....is a piece of.... fish....No sides...no sauce.....nothing..? What am I missing here?
