    (Don) Shula's Steakhouse coming to Des Moines

    Heard recently that Shula's Steakhouse is coming to downtown Des Moines. Sounds like it will be located in the Renaissance Savory Hotel.

    I'm not a huge fan of chain restaurants but I am curious if anyone has been to one of these/has any firsthand feedback.

    I see on their website, they have different versions/themes to their restaurants- a grill, sports, etc. I'm pretty sure the one coming to Des Moines is the steakhouse.

    Coach Shula is in it...albeit a bit fuzzy.

    That's some pricey food......

    $50 for a steak? It better come with an attractive female companion for the duration of the meal.

    I've been to one of the steak houses. It was alright. Not worth the price though.

    I ate at one in Florida while do training at our sales meeting. It was Lent so I had tuna. It was incredible - thought I was eating steak. Probably not a place I would go to if someone else wasn't paying.

    Re: (Don) Shula's Steakhouse coming to Des Moines

    It's been a few years but I landed late in the day on a Sunday, somewhere, for a meeting starting the next day. The only restaurant open within walking distance of the hotel was a Shula steakhouse. Honestly, I wasn't in the mood for a fine/ expensive steak (a rare moment indeed) but that's what was there. It was excellent. I'd put in on par with Ruth Chris.

    When I saw $50, Ruth Chris was my first thought.

    There's also a fish called a dolphin...you aren't eating the mammal.

    And wouldn't it be required to serve (fish) dolphin at Shula's?
