Tired of Seafood?
On Wednesday, January 4th, we ate at Jake's Steakhouse. We drove out Gulf Shores Parkway in search of something that had lights to show that was open at this time of year and after the hurricanes. There were several restaurants right together in this complex including Doc's Seafood Shack, but at the moment, I didn't want seafood. Although actually Jake's Steakhouse ALSO has seafood. There are two locations of Jake's - one in Gulf Shores and one in Orange.
They had early bird specials (which I don't think we were in time for - they were 3-6 pm) of Seafood Platter or Shrimp Alfredo for $8.95 each and Grilled Chicken with rice for $6.95 They also had All You Can Eat Specials of Popcorn Shrimp ($10.95) or Fried Grouper ($8.95). Take-out is available.
There were a lot of family groups there, and they had TV sets up near the ceilings and were watching one of the bowl games.
Beer, wine and specialty drinks (like Big Jake's Mararita - $6.95) are available. Bob had a half rack of ribs ($13.99), and I had "Jake's Special" 10 oz. sirloin for $14.95 which came with onion rings on it. Jake's Special is a regular menu item, and not an actual special. The steak came with a choice of house or Caesar salad and one side. I picked baked spiced apples, but I could also have had Sweet Pototo, Baked Potato, Steak Fries, Sweet Potato Chips, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Ranch Beans, Corn-on-the-cob, or steamed vegetables. They gave us little cheese biscuit balls to eat before the food came.
The total before tip was $31.54.
