Arizona Steakhouse Complaint - I expected much more from an upscale Steakhouse...
WILLIAMSBURG, MICHIGAN -- An upscale Steakhouse minutes away from a popular Michigan casino. See website: http://arizona-steakhouse.com/
You have got to be kidding me... I paid $65 for this??
First of all, the waiter could barely speak proper English. He had to go back to the bar twice to tell me that they are out of that kind of beer before I finally settled on a Killian's Red- third time is the charm, right? The beer was brought bottle only to my table, and I would have liked to have poured it into a nice glass to have a nice head to enjoy.
My wife & I ordered the Rib eye steak- mine done medium, hers medium-well. She opted for the salad, which was merely OK. I opted for the soup, which was brought semi-lukewarm. We had ordered mac & cheese for our young son from the children's menu for $4.25, but ended up with watery 99cent Kraft mac-n-cheese from a box in a bowl! My steak was hidden under way too many 'toppings'...which indicates to me that it needed to be hidden- and it did! My steak was under-cooked, and loaded with fat & gristle- I know that rib eye steaks have a bit more fat, but this was totally ridiculous. My wife's steak was more of the same, only worse- for a steak ordered medium-well, the tips of the steak should not have been blood-red... the steak was pretty much cooked rare! She didn't even eat a bite, and she wanted to just box it up instead and cook it the rest of the way once we got home, but when she picked it up to put it in the box, it was mostly fat! So she just left her $25 steak on the plate uneaten. I only ate about half of my steak before quiting, and didn't eat anything else.
All that, and the service was not that great. We waited nearly an hour to get our meal...and we were mere minutes away from walking out before getting our horrible steaks- not that it mattered once we finally was presented with them.
Funny...I didn't know that African Chichlid fish actually lived in Lake Powell in Arizona. While neat, the large 30 foot long aquarium seemed a bit out of place for a southwestern themed steak house. Maybe a large terraium housing lizards, and snakes would have been more suitable. But then what do I know, I can't even order a steak and get it the way I want it in "Arizona"...
