A friend was retiring from the Marine Corps after 30-years. I’m a retired Marine. I knew he liked CCSH. The food was good as always. It was a successful farewell to one of my fellow Warriors.

We started off with onion rings. Homemade and fabulous. I had ribeye and my friend had the fillet. The best steak I’ve ever had. We ordered shoestrng potatoes and creamed spinach, also divine. Salad dressings are homemade. I could actually taste the anchovies and raw egg in my Caesar salad! Pecan pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert was perfect. Can’t say enough good things except that I am not a person who normally go to a steakhouse, thinking I can make steak at home just as well. Not true, not when you have experienced the buttered steak at Crescent. I am a convert, at least to them.

This place is an institution. We had the porterhouse for 2. I had fries he had spinach Au gratin. Bottle of wine and dessert. The steak was delicious. I love leftover steak and when we got home I devoured the meat directly off the bone like a caveman. I felt like a lion on the Serengeti ripping into the pink flesh of a new kill. Highly recommend this place.

Enjoyed the history of eating in such an old original building. Service was really good. Wine was good, stuffed mushroom appetizer was really good. Steak was a big letdown. I wanted to be blown away. My t-bone came out and it was gray, didn’t look appetizing, and it really didn’t taste that good either. Bummed because I was really looking forward to it. The sides were pretty good. When you cook asparagus, you’re supposed to snap off the hard stock at the bottom. But they cooked the whole thing which I thought was weird. Bread pudding and z pie were really good. I wanted a really good steak but unfortunately didn’t get one here.

Crescent city steakhouse is listed on many blogs as on of the best in the city, so we decided to try it out. First thing to know, this place is NO frills. Very basic restaurant and a pretty small menu. For the appetizers we got the famous onion rings and the stuffed mushrooms. The onion rings were great, but just onion rings. The mushrooms were very good, but also fried. We each ordered a rib eye steak rare, two different preparings of potatoes and the brocolli Au gratin. The steaks came out on a sizzling plate but with NO sear or crust what so ever.. making the steak tough to cut and not appetizing looking. The flavor was good and it was cooked rare. The potatoes were also good but the brocolli seems frozen and covered in velveeta cheese.. not so great. Overall it was an inexpensive meal but not worth it. We would not return or recommend.
