The chefs at Daks Grill add gourmet accents to classic upscale American dishes using hand cut, USDA-quality meats and fresh ingredients. The four-course dinner menu kicks off with steaming artichoke dip, comprised of tangy artichoke hearts and a melty mélange of cheeses and herbs ($8). Diners can help each other over the crags and peaks of the crock o' French onion ($5), a mountain of sherry-seasoned sautéed onions ringed with beef broth and provolone, or sneak two straws into one soda ($2) for a more American way of bonding than baking an apple pie from apples stolen from the shoots grown from the tree George Washington chopped down as a child. For the main course, bacon-wrapped filet mignon ($25) parades down plates alongside fresh salmon ($17) that can be baked, charbroiled, or blackened. Dessert marries the chocolate and cream of tiramisu ($5) with a deep, dark coffee ($2) or soothing hot tea ($2). Diners can sit within the stately dining room and gaze through breezy Continental-style curtains or enjoy the late summer air on the outdoor patio.
Originally built in the 1800s as a hog and dairy farm, the historical Russell House was made over in 1997 as the site of Daks Grill. The flagstone-covered restaurant welcomes guests seven days a week, serving up fresh soups and grilling USDA Choice steaks, such as the 14-ounce new york strip and tender 8-ounce seasoned filet mignon. During the warmer months, diners can enjoy their food on the spacious outdoor patio while keeping an eye on suspiciously bunny-like cloud formations.
