Mike Shannon's Steaks and Seafood
Fans of sports or tasty beef will enjoy dining at Mike Shannon's Steaks and Seafood. The restaurant's namesake, Mike Shannon, played third base for the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1960's and early 1970's and is now the team's radio broadcaster. When the Cardinals are playing, big crowds come in to eat a tender, aged steak and watch the game. The steaks are so well prepared that the restaurant won the Best Beef Award from the Missouri Beef Council for three consecutive years. Reservations are recommended at peak hours.
We also dined at Mike Shannon's (he's the current play by play announcer for the St. Louis Cards and a former outfielder for the Cards).
I would not go back there.
Attractive decor, service excellent, but the prices were outrageous. I had a prime rib . . $26.00 a la carte. It was huge, (16 oz) I'll give you that. But I really didn't want huge, and I didn't have an option.
Interestingly, we had two rather distinguished and well dressed gentlemen seated across from us. They looked over the menu, looked at each other and said, "hell, we'd burn up all of our per diem just eating here." They ordered a beer and left.
If folks don't mind spending an awful lot of money, I suppose it's okay . . . but I wouldn't recommend it as one of my top five places to send tourists . . . certainly not without a warning.
They had a filet and lobster, a la carte, $41. That was a 'special.' Interesting. The waiter outlined the special(s), there were two of them, but he didn't give the price. You had to ask the price. I don't like that. We didn't just fall of the turnip truck . . . and I had a feeling that he was reaching into our wallets, hoping we wouldn't notice, but being very polite about it.

it instantly brings to mind luxury and patriotism. Many of the menu items, dating back over 20 years, are ...
Given the wood plank floors and the large model train that circles the bar, customers here might really think that
they are revisiting the Old West. The antiques scattered throughout the dining room date back to the late 1800s; ...
