It's been forever since I've been to the Mendenhall Inn (the restaurant not the banquet/catering facilities). Everyday there are great specials, discounted and creative. Any day of the week, wine BYOB are welcome. The wine list is limited but has reasonably priced items. The wines offer no particular depth in selection, but enough to satisfy most diners.
We ordered the Shrimp Dumplings (4) $10....they are house-made shrimp wonton with the sweet chili sauce.....Excellent. The Hors d'oeuvres for Two $18 is a spectalular deal and the very highest quality meaty Crabcake, two of the best rolls of Smoked Salmon, 4 Clams Casino and 4 HUGE Shrimp Cocktail.
All items are a la carte but a dinner salad can be added for only $3.50. My 6oz Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly to order with my option of 4 large seared Sea Scallops in butter sauce $30 (Filet only was $24), served with a Asparagus and piped mashed potatoes. The Prime Rib was outstanding. The are incredible and numerous desserts, and tableside creations, like Bananas Foster.
I had the end of all ends of a great dinner. The Keoke Coffee (Brandy & Kahlua) $10 was the best I've ever had and considering there were 3 huge ladles of brandy and Kahlua each, with fresh whipped cream.......It is the Deal of the Century.
Live piano in the dining room on Friday and Saturday nights. The adjacent tavern room also serves lighter fare. Service is formal and professional. A very safe bet for a flawless meal, special occasion or romantic dinner. A pure winner!
2 drinks per person and all this $146 before tip.
