A classic American steakhouse, Bartlett’s roasted prime rib is seasoned with a rosemary salt crust and served with a loaded baked potato. If you have a smaller appetite, you can always opt for their Famous French Dip Sandwich, made with thinly sliced prime rib, mayo and au jus. Bartlett's has an excellent cocktail menu, too, offering handcrafted drinks like the Pimm's Cup and Bartlett Pear Martini.
Fleming’s serves USDA Prime beef and touts an award-winning selection of 100 wines by the glass. Their prime rib dinner comes with three different sauces, a salad, side and dessert. From the loaded baked potato and crispy Brussels sprouts to their signature onion rings, the sides are sure to complement your prime rib. Fleming’s only servers prime rib on Sundays, so be sure to call ahead and make a reservation between 5 and 9 p.m.
Meats at The Roaring Fork are prepared on a wood-fire rotisserie, just like they were in the Old West. The steak selection varies by the day, depending on what fresh meats are on hand, but prime rib and real black angus steaks are two popular choices. Their bacon-wrapped tenderloin and cheesy grits also have quite a following!
If you feel like treating yourself to the ultimate fine dining experience, Vince Young Steakhouse is a great choice. Locally owned and operated, they use the highest quality ingredients and offer a cozy, romantic ambiance with a fireplace and wine collection on the walls. Enjoy a prime ribeye steak, paired with foie gras, scallops or jumbo lump crab meat. Sides are offered a la carte, and options include bacon mac and cheese, potatoes gratin, and asparagus with bearnaise sauce. Make your reservations online through OpenTable.
