Eating a hearty steak is a more kingly act than wearing a crown or banishing the dog to a small island in the South Atlantic. Get the royal treatment with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of steaks, seafood, and more at Woody's Steakhouse in Madison.
From within its cozy, neighborly confines, Woody's beckons to bellies with a menu of delicious grilled fare. Begin by consuming a collection of huge handbreaded buttermilk onion rings, then move on to a half slab of hickory-smoked barbecue ribs ($10.95) or an herb-seasoned grilled chicken breast ($10.95). Take a break from all the eating by pausing to eat an 18-ounce king cut of prime rib ($18.95), which is roasted at the speed of sloth and served with a homemade buttermilk au jus. Seafoodstuffs include the baked shrimp, stuffed with Ritz crackers and crabmeat ($13.95), the New Zealand orange roughy ($13.95), and the grilled-shrimp platter ($12.95), which features charbroiled decapods laid to rest on rice. Stop in on Wednesday evenings to listen to a piano talk about music, or visit on any other day and eat to the beat of chomping jaws and happy lip smacks.

Woody’s Steak House
At Woody’s Steak House, chefs roast prime rib for four hours, carve the succulent cuts to order, and ladle them with house au jus. The sumptuous entree is one of the reasons Woody’s Steak House has remained a neighborhood bastion for more than 70 years. Other entrees reflect a similar attention to detail, from the aged-in-house filet mignon to the pecan-smoked ribs. Meaty morsels pair with an ample wine list and, on Wednesdays, the soft melodies of piano music and murmured reminders to chew 27 times before swallowing.
