This is the first time I have ever written a restaurant review....the $39 for a bad steak took me over the edge!
I've lived in Wisconsin all my life and I love supper clubs. The atmosphere, the relish tray and a good old fashioned! I'm on a bit of a quest to find the most amazing steaks I can in the Milwaukee area. I've eaten at Dream Dance, Butch's, Eddie, Martini's and Carnevor. It was time for the Five O' Clock. So myself and friend of mine ventured off....unfortunately we got he same results.
The atmosphere and service was great...the bar tenders were amazing! But the reason I came here was for the bone in rib-eye. To me it's an amazing cut and one of my favorites. If I am on a quest for an amazing steak it needs to be the same in all of the restaurants..right?
We had our order taken at the bar. I ordered my steak medium rare as I do with all my cuts of beef. We started off with a nice salad and some really good bread...then we waited, and it was a Saturday night and we waited some more. The anticipation of a good meal was building........
It arrived and right off bat I was looking at this steak sitting in a soup of jus...somewhat confused as I was used to steak in a very pure form...butter and salt and pepper. I thought ok...here we go, this is gonna be great. The sadness fell on me like a fat kid at a birthday party when he finds out there is no cake. It was burnt on the outside, over cooked on the inside and cut like leather. CRUSHED...was my only thought. I know they use charcoal grills but this was to much. The jus had actually taken on a burnt flavor as well and I suspect it was to hide the imperfections of my steak. So, I had a few bites and it never got any better....the waitress came to check on us and I told her it wasn't as good as I hoped for. She did try to correct it, but to wait another 20-25 minutes just wouldn't work. I had Polish beer to drink and live music to attend to.
My friend who had the porterhouse had the same results and opinion.
Would I go back.......if it's for an old fashioned yes....for steak absolutely NO! Folks take your appetites and wallets to other steak places, this is not the one.
So I ate it....$39 made me do it.
