Chris Michaels Steakhouse & Lounge
Chris Michaels Steakhouse & Lounge is truly the best of both worlds, from the valet parking to dessert. Chris Michaels is the perfect scene for a formal family dinner, a night out on the town with friends or a general hang out to watch the game. The dimly lit atmosphere, impeccable service, and mouthwatering dishes are a welcome ambiance for any occasion. Owner Mike Kontos, prides himself on his fresh, uniquely seasoned, and carefully cooked ingredients.
Once leaving your car with the valet and collecting your ticket, bring an empty stomach into the lobby. The host welcomes you into the happy medium of the venue and will ask you what’s your pleasure. To your left is the area that serves as a sports bar every night and lounge area on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights equip with light fixtures, flat screens, curtains, a dance floor, and VIP seating areas. To your right is the classy yet traditional steakhouse and more familial setting. The servers will greet you warmly at your table and make you feel at home. They are down to earth and very knowledgeable about the menu. If you find yourself a little overwhelmed and undecided with the variety presented on the two different menus, just ask.
To start off (and as you skim the menus) don’t hesitate to order their refreshing in-house sangria presented elegantly in a tall goblet with squared chunks of granny smith apples and ripened orange bits over ice. Some of the popular appetizers feature their famous thick cut apple wood bacon; a slice that yields a combination of salty and charcoaled flavorful goodness straight off the grill. This simple slice served solo on a plate will turn a person who doesn’t eat pork into a believer. The calamari is none like I have ever experienced as it is fried to perfection, crisp yet pure, served with a marinara sauce that tastes like it came straight from the vine, and then dressed with crushed red peppers to add a surprising zest.
Chris Michael’s steak house is most known for it’s flawlessly tender, juicy, and salacious Filet Mignon that would melt in your mouth if it weren’t for the generous amount of fiery homemade steak sauce that is served on the side with a gently cooked and lightly salted tower of home fries and onions to seal the deal. The steak is plump, moist, and filling; be careful not to fall in love. Before you leave happy, satisfied, and served don’t forget to order the crème brulee. A thick sweet treat with a crisp surface adorned with slices of strawberry, raspberries, and blueberries; a thick creamy luscious core can be found beneath. The Chris Michaels experience is a sophisticated twist to your everyday steakhouse.
