Donovan’s Steak and Chop House also has an atmosphere of casual elegance.
from the moment you step inside it is clear that the owners spared no expense to make sure that no fine dining detail was ignored.
👌 First Class
Here, all parking is by valet service, which is just the first indication of the first-rate excellent service that Donovan’s has become known for. The inside of the restaurant is characteristic of what you would expect from any upscale leather and mahogany inspired steakhouse.
The interior has a library feel to it thanks to the dark paneled wood and the accompanying soft lighting. The walls are lined with a fine selection of oil paintings, as well as an array of silver and bronze structures that complement the dark paneled wood perfectly.
The main dining room is separated by a wine bar lounge that features a sommelier driven wine list that offers affordable and quality wine pairings that can satisfy both the experienced wine snob and the newbie. The service is supreme from start to finish; as soon as you find a table, a friendly waiter will offer you complimentary bottled water, which will be available for the entire duration of your meal.
🏅 USDA Prime
Donavan’s mantra is all prime all the time, which basically means that you will get an assortment of cuts of juicy grade USDA prime in any cut including filet mignon, rib eye, veal chop or a New York strip. Every Donovan’s steak is seasoned minimally so that the flavor of the steak can really shine through.
Other options available include the Australian rack of lamb and the North Atlantic Salmon. The main course comes with complimentary accompaniments of potatoes and veggies for every entree. Salads and appetizers are also available to enjoy before the main course. While a visit here is still a splurge, everything that is served is well worth the price and the trouble.
