My mouth was watering!
My family loves good food. We are all big meat lovers, with Steak being our top choice. My husband and daughter are both big seafood lovers as well.
We love to venture out as a family and try new restaurants. As for a good Steak house, we have had a hard time finding one we all love, that is affordable. Part of the problem could be that Tim, my husband, knows how to cook a superb steak on grill. He has the magic touch!
Our last few outings have been less than exciting so we decided to try Connors Steak and Seafood, located at Bridge Street Towne Center here in Huntsville. Am I ever glad we did! We were told from many, how wonderful the food and service was. In fact, I have never heard a negative thing about Connors Steak and Seafood, come to think of it. Now I know why! We were not mislead. We went early, Friday, before the work crowds arrived. Trust me, when I say crowds. Obviously, Connors is not a well kept secret.
Connors Steak and Seafood hails from Knoxville Tennessee. Huntsville is proud to be the home of their third location. In doing so, it does not have that “in the box chain restaurant feel”. I can also say it is a local favorite!
We were greeted by two smiling and very friendly hostess’s, who quickly led us to our seats. Connors has a wonderful ambiance. From the stoned fireplaces, to the beamed ceilings, I found it to be very charming. Here at the pics:
Lori was our server. Lori had a wonderful smile and an even better attitude! She was more than happy to share her vast knowledge of the menu, from the wonderful wine list, to our discussion on the various cuts of meat they offer. Lori helped make our dining experience at Connors one of the best we have had in a long time. She steered us down the right road, from the Lobster dip as our appetizer, to our fabulous dinners! When you visit Connors, be sure to try the Lobster dip. Oh my goodness. It was “to die for”!
When choosing our dinner, we all decided to try three different cuts. After fighting over the last bit of Lobster dip, our salads arrived. I chose the House Salad which had grape tomatoes, carrots, egg, bacon & almonds. It was good, but just a salad. My daughter chose the Caesar salad. It was very good. Hubby Tim chose the Baby Spinach and Strawberry salad that Lori recommended. I can honestly say that was the best salad I have ever tasted. I loved it, as did my husband! I was begging for a few more bites, believe me!
For our entrees, I chose the 9 0z. Boursin Filet (9 oz) topped with homemade seasoned Boursin cheese & tobacco onions. I also had the Homemade Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes, again with Lori guiding me. What a mouthwatering combination! My Filet was melting in my mouth. I am a mashed potato lover and these were the best!
Tim chose the Connors Prime Rib (8, 12 oz) seasoned & slow-roasted, along with Asparagus. Again, delicious! Tim LOVES Asparagus and is typically disappointed when he orders it out. Not this time. Cooked to perfection, as was his Prime Rib.
Miranda, my daughter, chose the 12 oz. Ribeye. For her side, she had the fresh steamed Broccoli. She enjoyed her Ribeye, but kept begging for more of MY Filet, and just “one more bite” of her Dad’s Prime Rib! I think next time she is going for the Prime Rib. Neither of her parents were very cooperative when it came to food sharing this time! It was just too darned good! I had a hard enough time trying to share the Lobster dip for goodness sake!
Dinner for the three of us: $91 before tip.Sadly, we were all FAR too full to even consider dessert. Their dessert list looks delicious but all of us were just stuffed, from the fabulous dinner we all experienced.
My recommendation is “You MUST try Connors Steak and Seafood“. For the best dining experience in town, be sure to ask for Lori! You will not be disappointed. Welcome to Huntsville, Connors Steak and Seafood! We are glad you are here!
