We hit another steakhouse Saturday night. It was a long day, I wasn’t feeling well and I was ready to refuel my body with a big, fat, juicy Filet Mignon. So, we headed out to our favorite place in the area. I’m hesitant to say exactly where because Joe doesn’t want anyone to know about our favorite place. It is our little secret and he would rather keep it that way to avoid a long wait. So, I won’t say just yet.
We have been going there for a few years now. Tony, our favorite waiter, is always there to serve us and knows we like booth seating! The cost is on the high end, but it is worth every penny. You are guaranteed to get a great steak every time. In fact, in season many call in advance to reserve a prime rib (barrel cuts only). Joe loves the end cut and if we are not there early enough we miss out. That’s not a problem since there are so many other entrees that are just as tasty.
The menu is a la carte. For appetizers, I’ve had the Colossal Shrimp Cocktail, Lump Crab Cocktail and the Stuffed Shrimp. All were very good. Other appetizers include Soup du Jour, Oysters Rockefeller and more. They offer a wide variety of salads – the Beefsteak Tomatoes, Sweet Onions and Buffalo Mozzarella is delish! Entrees include your typical steakhouse fare with an assorted selection of meats and seafood. I’m a creature of habit and a Filet Mignon – Oscar’d works for me. For those who have not experienced a Filet Oscar, it is jumbo lump crabmeat piled high, topped with bérnaise sauce and then topped with a few crisp asparagus. Just a quick mention about sides – the Lyonnaise Potatoes are the best. It’s a great experience.
Any guesses yet? No, it’s not Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. They do have a similar menu but we prefer our restaurant. The steak has been more consistent in quality and taste and the restaurant is easy to get in and get out. If you haven’t guessed yet, our favorite steakhouse in Jupiter is Barrymore’s Restaurant.
Give their menu a try and let us know what you think.
