If steak is in the name of your business, you had better be able to deliver the goods. This upscale restaurant has been doing just that for 30 years. Although the la carte menu features steak, it also boasts chicken, lobster and shrimp dishes. Start with an appetizer of barbecue roasted shrimp or jumbo shrimp cocktail. Sautéed mushrooms and a choice of seven different potato offerings are fine accompaniments to any entrée. Your steak, whether it be the 24-ounce New York strip or 40-ounce porterhouse for two, is broiled to your specifications. For smaller appetites, the 14-ounce filet mignon is an excellent alternative. For dessert, the bread pudding with whiskey sauce and the chocolate praline ice cream are favorites. Ruth's features a superb wine and beer list. Cocktails and soft drinks are also available.
This first class restaurant has enough class not to have a dress code. It was even voted as one of the Top five Steakhouses in the Nation by the Zagat Guide. You can feel comfortable coming here dressed to the nines for your evening at the Orpheum Theatre or dressed in jeans after visiting the Home and Garden Show at the nearby Minneapolis Convention Center. Surroundings are refined, yet completely overshadowed by the food. From the fillet mignon to the tender asparagus, each bite is mouth-watering. Vegetables are served family style. Known for steak, the menu does offer many choices of seafood including live Nova Scotia lobster, salmon and yellowfin tuna. The waiters are always there when you need them, but never seem to hover. The wine list includes selections of French, Italian, Australian and Spanish wines priced reasonably.
When you serve 10,000 steaks a year, it is obvious you are doing something right. The home of the Silver Butter Knife, this place with its low lights, smoked mirrors and pink linen tablecloths is your destination for delectable steak. At Murray's, the ambiance is that of a 1950s supper club. Coupled with efficient service, you know you are in for a first class evening. Start your culinary adventure with an appetizer of hickory-smoked shrimp, wrapped in bacon and served with cocktail sauce. The salads and baked potatoes are huge, but dwarfed by the Silver Butter Knife steak or the Porterhouse. The classic New York Strip steak or Broiled Salmon will surely satisfy those who are looking for a lighter meal. No one leaves without having a slice of Lemon-Angel Pie - a meringue crust with a tart custard-lemon filling, topped with whipped cream. The wine list is impeccable and the beer selection is first rate.
All of St. Paul seems to gather here for lunch or dinner before hitting the theater. As busy as it is, the frosted glass panels scattered about the dining area give an air of privacy. The handsome, comfortable surroundings are what you would expect from a four-star establishment. The wait staff is experienced and considerate. The menu is a mixture of light entrees (pastas, walleye and chicken) and classic hearty meals (24oz steaks, pork chops and veal). The three page wine list has every vintage you can imagine. An extensive selection of imported beers and top quality liquors is available. Reservations are advised, but the paneled, club-like bar serves the full menu until midnight.
