Sunday night Mike and I decided to out to eat. Being the cheap-os that we are we looked at what we had coupons for. Black Angus, Campfire Feast for 2…$12 off?? Winner!
Also, neither of us had been there in years, so it seemed like a good choice. And it turns out, the food has, from my memory, improved quite a bit. So that’s a win. Here’s my breakdown:
- Atmosphere: 3 Spatulas. I know when you think of a steakhouse, romance probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But whoever designed this place gave the guests a little extra privacy by making the booths super tall. Which is nice. And considering it was just Mike & I, we enjoyed not having our neighbors in our faces.
- Service: 3 1/2 Spatulas. Our server was prompt, and friendly, without hovering and being annoying. And she checked back to make sure our entrees were what we wanted. Which they were.
- Food: 4 Spatulas. As I mentioned earlier, we ordered their Campfire Feast for 2. Basically, this means you get an appetizer, 2 entrees, and dessert for a combined price. And the food was very high quality. Oh, and to start you off, they bring you their Honey Molasses Bread, gratis. Which is nummy. Warm, slightly sweet bread with crispy oats on the outside. Yum. For our appetizer, we chose the Crispy Garlic Pepper Zucchini which was also very good. Although fried, it did not sit heavily on your stomach. And it came with a yogurt-cucumber dip, which I liked and Mike loved. The entrees came with your choice of 2 sides, one of which could be a salad. So we both ordered the Wedge Salad with bleu cheese. Umm…YUMMY! Nice, crisp iceberg lettuce topped with bleu cheese crumbles, bacon, fresh tomatoes and bleu cheese dressing. What’s bad about that??? Exactly. Nothing is bad about it at all. Except for the fact that our entrees hadn’t even come yet and we were well on our way to stuffed. On to the main courses, Mike had the 12 ounce ribeye and he liked it. Had nice grill marks on it and a slight smoky taste. I had the 8 ounce top sirloin, which was cooked to medium, as ordered and was a nice piece of meat. Mmm. Tasty Cow. I had the garlic mashed potatoes with mine, which were lumpy and only lukewarm, so meh. Mike had the sweet potato fries which were good, served with a maple dipping sauce that reminded me of french toast. For dessert we had their seasonal offering, the fresh-baked sugar cookie topped with berries and vanilla ice cream. So. Damn. Good.
- Overall Value: 3 1/2 Spatulas. This was a decent meal. However, not sure we would have gone with the coupon. They usually charge $52 for what we had. And I feel like the $39 is more appropriate. It was a ton of food, and we took home leftovers, which is always a good thing. And the leftovers held up, which is even better. Will we go back? Yes. Without a coupon? Probably not.
