Unlike visiting a new neighbor’s house, visiting a steak house comes with a virtual guarantee that you’ll be welcomed, fed, and trusted with knives. Make a hunger-halting house call with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of steaks, seafood, and pasta at Joel’s Front Yard Steak House in Verona.
Joel’s Front Yard Steak House has served a hearty menu of varied steak, seafood, and pasta since 1965. Maryland crab cakes ($9.95 for two) start meals with house remoulade and golden-fried flavor. Experience the slow-roasted deliciousness of a one-pound slab of the house specialty, prime rib ($24.95), also available blackened and Cajun-spiced for an additional $1. Cognac tenderloin tips cover char-broiled filet-mignon tips with a cognac-brandy shallot sauce and helpful advice ($21.95), and the seafood pasta scampi throws caution to the wind and tosses sea scallops and shrimp over pasta and garlic sauce ($18.95). Chicken parmigiana takes a classically prepared Italian dish and places it atop the pasta du jour ($16.95). Transform any meal into a surf-and-turf dinner with seafood add-ons including market-price lobster tail or parmesan, scampi, Cajun, or fried fresh sea scallops ($8.95).
Joel’s Front Yard Steak House features a singular dining atmosphere, with a section of indoor carousel and large wooden booths hidden away in barrel-shaped alcoves. Whether dining among painted horses or in polished, heavy wooden chairs beneath colored-glass light fixtures, Joel’s playful ambiance enhances every meal.
