Review: Steakout

There’s a new kid in town and that’s Steakout on Granby Street. Steakout offers a great a menu and specializes, as you’d expect from the name, in a fantastic range of steaks.

With such a wide-ranging menu on offer, including the best milkshakes we’ve had in a long time, don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a steak house. It’s much more.

For starters we opted for a range of prawn dippers, cheese balls (spiced potato and cheese in a batter) and the mixed grill to share between us. The mixed grill seems an expensive option on the appetizers menu but for the size of it, it’s a bargain. You could easily enjoy this tasty mix of lamb chops, chicken wings and chicken strips as a main course. The prawns and cheese balls didn’t disappoint with generous portions and full of flavour.

The menu for main courses included an incredible range of meats including T-bone, fillet, ribeye, sirloin, rack of ribs, chicken, fish, lamb and aside from all that there is still a choice of burgers, pies, salads and veggie options.

I was recommended the Philly cheese steak by the very helpful and enthusiastic waiter, Harrison, and it didn’t disappoint. A tender cut of steak top with caramelized onion and cheese, the meat was cooked just as I like it (medium-rare) and once again the portion was generous. Accompanied by the super tasty sweet potato fries I definitely wasn’t disappointed in my choice!

Other mains sampled off the menu included the tilapia fish, which came lightly fried and the chicken and mushrooms pie. The tilapia was tasty, not too heavy and was complemented well by the side of garlic mash and whilst the pie tasted fresh we couldn’t help but think it seemed a little on the small side. Sorry – I think we were spoilt with the big portions of everything else!

As full as we were, the desserts menu looked too tempting not to sample. With waffles, pancakes, sundaes and more you’ll struggle to say no! Firstly, the milkshakes! Well… Steakout don’t serve any alcohol so we were hoping the shakes would go down well and they certainly did. All of the gelato is made by the team at the restaurant and it went perfectly into the shakes. The Oreo and Snickers ones were especially tasty! Far too full for a dessert each, we asked the team to make us an ice cream sundae of their choice… always a risk but we trusted them! They came back with Bubblegum gelato and Skittles sundae. Wow. This wasn’t something that I’d have ever chosen from the menu, but I certainly would now. The bubblegum gelato is their own creation and I urge everyone to try it. It really works!

The restaurant has only been open for just over a week but has been proving popular so I suggest booking in advance. Additionally, as the restaurant is still in their very early days they didn’t have all of the menu options so be sure to ask the waiter for any suggested alternatives if they don’t have your first choice.
