Their steaks really don't impress me, I buy prime steaks, a lot bigger than they offer-I can crank my grill to 1000 degrees for a good seal and roast them after that with butter on top--cooking steaks is not rocket science-- we go out to eat for what we don't cook @ home--Admiral doesn't like fish but I love fish

You fell right into their trap. Not publishing some of their prices is a rip-off. Don't patronize places that don't show prices. "Market Price" is a gimmick. It sometimes translates to "Over Priced". The price of beef does not change every day.

To make you feel even worse, a 14 (not 12) oz. NY Strip Steak at Capital Grille, goes for $30 with a side dish. (That's 44% less, for 17% more.)

We should all complain about this bad practice of "surprise billing".

A USDA Prime NY Strip goes for $9.99 - $11.99/lb at COSTCO. Like Chat, I prefer to grill my own. Now if I could only find some morel mushrooms down here for my Morel sauce....

Finally got there last weekend. Liked the decor.. service was good. Wine by the glass unremarkable, but pricey for the Villages. I typically judge a steakhouse by the quality of their Bone-In Ribeye, which is not on the menu. So I opted for the $50 dollar Delmonico, which they equate to a boneless rib-eye. I would not order that again - it appeared to be pan fried, as it had no grill like char on the outside. Frankly, I like a good marbled steak, but this was as fatty as a prime rib. I'm not a good cook, but my grilled steaks bought from Publix are way better. Some mentioned Capital Grill, which I used to frequent when I lived in Atlanta. Atlanta also has a Del Frisco's and recently opened a Double Eagle after we moved. Unfortunately, they are not in that league. If one wants to stay in the bubble, it is certainly upscale. I am certainly a proponent of small businesses, and realize restaurants often have a short shelf life. I hope they succeed .. We'll probably go back for a lunch, or try some other less expensive items on menu and compare with Lopez and Havana ..

I think you can at the Brownwood Farmers Market. There is a lovely Vietnamese woman who carries several varieties of mushrooms along with other difficult-to-find food items. She’s there every Saturday morning in one of the larger stands on the outside perimeter.

Yikes! I'd take the filet over a strip steak any day. Now, if I could only get a reservation that's well after 4 PM, or before 8 PM, I'd comment on the quality.
