VB Restaurant Week - Steinhilber's

I love restaurant week! Although my husband never seems to be in town for them, I've been able to share some fun eats with great friends in whichever city I've been living in. I think it's a really great chance to go try a new restaurant or go back to a favorite spot.

Steinhilber's

I have been hearing about Steiny's for quite some time, so I was excited to try out their restaurant week menu.

The restaurant is tucked inside of a neighborhood, luckily it is well lit so you can't miss it! The interior was that of a nicer old fashioned steak house, there's a lot of wood, simple tables draped in white linens, and a nice fireplace in the middle.  The downstairs had a completely different feel...totally modern. It was primarily white but the lighting helped make the room feel "warm." I believe it was recently renovated and while it worked, it was almost too different compared to the rest of the place.

 Overall, it wasn't the best meal I've had in town, but it was good and I'm glad we got to try it. I'm looking forward to going back with my man during a regular week.






Appetizer:
Signature Fried Shrimp - Though it isn't what I wanted, it is one of Steiny's signature items so I had to get it. It was a nice big and meaty fried shrimp, but at the end of the day it was still friend shrimp.

Parmesean Polenta Cakes with Mushrooms -  My friend got this and it was pretty delicious! The mushrooms were great and the reduced balsamic drizzle added a nice sweetness to the dish.

Salad:
Nothing spectacular, just a house salad that came with a variety of dressings. Very simple and I remember it being pretty fresh, again reminds me of a plain house salad you get at an old fashioned steak house.

Entree:
 Prime Rib with Aus Jus and a Twice Baked Potato - My steak could've been a little warmer, but it was tender and flavorful.

Dessert:
I had asked for their Sin Pie, but they were still making it so I got the Tapicoa instead. It had fresh strawberries and a mountain of whipped cream...so there wasn't much that could go wrong with it.


Bread:
A combination of dinner rolls and cornbread. The cornbread was the best part of the basket...I love me some cornbread!
