    Best Steak Restaurant in the Ames Area

    I'll be taking my son to the Hoiberg shooting camp in 2 weeks. We'll be going to Hickory Park and Great Plains Sauce and Dough. But I don't know if there is a good steak restaurant in the area (chain restaurants don't count). And I really don't want to drive to Conrad or Des Moines.

    Open Flame in Gilbert, otherwise might as well go to Texas Roadhouse. none of them will be spectacular, as fat as steak goes. But will be ok.

    Yep they still have prime rib. Was very close to getting it for dinner last night but opted for the tri tip. I wasnt ready to fork over $33. (They may not even serve it during the week anyways)

    Re: Best Steak Restaurant in the Ames Area

    For what it's worth - I think I've had my last meal at The Open flame in Gilbert. A couple months ago we experienced nightmarish service, wrong orders and a very dirty resturant experience. Kind of a bummer as we've been going there for 20 years. It's seems to have been on a downward slide for awhile, but the last visit was ridiculous.

    Re: Best Steak Restaurant in the Ames Area

    If we're in town and wanting steak, we always head to Cafe Northwest. It has been about two yrs since we were last there, so maybe someone can confirm with a more recent review. They use Greek seasoning and appear to broil (at least part of the time) in butter. Get the side of Greek spaghetti and Greek salad. Good stuff!!

    Re: Best Steak Restaurant in the Ames Area

    Dublin Bay also has a very good steak there in my opinion. I would say it's one of our favorite places to go in ames. I'm in my 30's and it seems kind of childish but they have damn good cheese balls there too.

    Re: Best Steak Restaurant in the Ames Area

    All the more reason for the Oddfellows guy to reopen the Italian place he had out in West Ames. Obviously not at that location, but somewhere else in town.
