Al's Restaurant Just north of the flashy Lumière Place downtown lies Al's Restaurant, which has enjoyed its home along the riverfront for 85 years. The upscale restaurant serves all the perennial favorites, including escargot, lobster tails and steak tartar for starters. Al's only serves dinner, which offers a selection of steaks such as steak Diane and filet mignon or the "Italian Dinner" -- a filet alongside veal parmigiano. Not in the mood for steak? No problem: Al's also offers a variety of veal preparations, pork chops seafood and duck breast among their entrees. Reservations are recommended.
Steak lovers flock to this rambling old farmhouse for good reason -- its eponymous marinade results in a savory searing on the outside of the meat (and seafood, too) and an incredible juiciness on the inside. Offerings also include a succulent prime rib and daily seafood specials.
The second location of the popular O'Fallon, Illinois, restaurant brings classic steak-house charm - and Andria's famous steak sauce - to west county. The menu is traditional steak-house cuisine: shrimp cocktail, baked potato and lots and lots of steak. Strip and rib-eye steaks bring a great balance of flavor and tenderness. All steaks, as well as the mammoth pork chop, are brushed with the legendary sauce. Though not cheap, Andria's is more casual and value-minded than many old-school steakhouses: Entrées come with a side and a large salad, and feel free to wear jeans.
With its origins strongly rooted in St. Louis' former top-flight Japanese restaurant, Robata, Ariake Japanese Steakhouse combines a teppanyaki steak house, where your meal is cooked at your table, with a full sushi bar and a Thai restaurant. While the Japanese menu focuses mostly on the various meats and seafood that will be sizzled right where you sit, such as their filet mignon or lobster, the Thai side turns its culinary attention more toward the sauces and curries that flavor your dish. In addition to the usual pad Thai and stir-fried items, Ariake's Thai menu includes a crispy catfish and garlic frog legs with a spicy sauce. Their sushi menu offers sashimi, rolled sushi and a variety of specialty rolls.
Bacana Brasil is a churrascaria: You sit at your table, and costumed "gauchos" bring you meat until you tell them to stop. Most selections at least offer the simple pleasures of grilled meat. Standouts include juicy, tender top-round sirloin and super-size lamb shish kebabs. Side dishes and salads are available from the salad bar and hot buffet -- but considering how much meat you'll ingest, you probably shouldn't visit these more than once. Everything but drinks and dessert (if you can manage it) are included in the all-you-can-eat price.
Local diners looking for the best steak house in town are in luck, on account of one of them letting it be known right there in their name for us. Located on Grand Boulevard across from the fabulous Fox Theatre, where adjectives rule, the Best Steak House tells you what to expect before you walk in the door. Their menu, not surprisingly, features steaks, porterhouse, T-bone, strip, rib eye and sirloin. Best Steak also serves sandwiches, a common carryout item for the lunch crowd, holding items such as fried fish, gyro meat, chicken, pork and, naturally, steak. Other menu options include salads, chicken strips and, when available, chili. Diners will find a casual atmosphere where no reservations are required at Best Steak House, but they do recommend calling ahead for faster carryout service.
The ceilings are very, very high at St. Charles' Big A's on the Riverfront, which is a good thing: It affords more room on the very, very tall walls for the eatery's collection of beer and sports memorabilia. The restaurant serves good, satisfying bar fare - burgers, chicken Phillies, some pretty amazing waffle fries - and hosts drink specials most nights of the week. The venue has a clean, friendly vibe and cheery service, making it a fine spot for a bite, a drink, or both.
