After doing this blog for over five years it’s always a treat to hear about a new place that’s opened up that I’ve never been to. This happened a couple week’s ago while reading the “Dining Out” section of the PJ Star. Thomas Bruch reviewed a restaurant in the Holiday Inn out near the Shoppes at Grand Prairie. The restaurant is called the Suite Fire Bar + Grilll and Thomas had the whiskey sirloin steak for his entree and gave it a high rating. I think you can probably see where this is heading...
Right over to the Holiday Inn. I didn’t even know this was here! There’s the sign for the Suite Fire Bar + Grille. Let’s go in and start our 27th week of steak!
The restaurant is located just off of the lobby and that’s Christy at the host station. I told her I was going to sit at the bar and she pointed me in that direction. But before we go, check this out...
Wow, on the last Thursday of the month, it’s Happy Hour specials all night long! That is one Suite deal! Sorry, I couldn’t help myself!
There’s the bar over here, there’s some seats smack-dab in the middle, so we’ll snag one of them and get settled in.
There’s tables behind the bar and comfortable booths line the far wall. A communal table and TV are located in the back of the restaurant.
Meanwhile, back at the bar...
It looks like it’s time for the 27th steak dinner. And for those of you keeping score, this is the second to last steak dinner for the tour! Hard to believe that the seven months is just about over!
I decided to make it a surf and turf dinner and ordered the bacon-wrapped shrimp for an appetizer. The shrimp were plump and juicy and in addition to the bacon on the outside, they’re also stuffed with jalapeño and pepper jack cheese. There’s melted citrus butter for dipping and they were so tasty. The surf portion certainly was satisfying, now it’s on to the turf section!
Right on cue, Aubri appears with our steak dinner! Beautiful! And the steak looks really good too!
I got the pub chips which are cooked fresh to order and the dinner comes with two onion rings on top of the steak. A nice salty start to the dinner!
The Whiskey Sirloin Steak looks so good. It’s got grill marks and it’s covered with the house whiskey au jus. This is the restaurant’s signature steak dish.
This was such a delicious steak! The whiskey sauce complimented the tender and juicy steak nicely, so I didn't even add A-1 Sauce to it! It’s a generous and lean cut of steak and it was cooked to perfection.
After that wonderful surf and turf meal, I ended it with the King of Desserts. Cheers!
Four Elsie the Cows—The steak was fabulous and I suggest if you try it out, you go surf and turf like I did and start out with the bacon-wrapped shrimp. That was such a great meal!
