Men's men, ladies' men, men's ladies, ladies' ladies, and unusually mature children can all dine in style with today's Groupon. For $20, you get $50 worth of steaks, seafoods, and drinks at Mike Shannon's Steaks and Seafood near Busch Stadium. Your Groupon is good after 4 p.m. in the steakhouse only, so you can use it on either happy hour or dinner.
Mike Shannon has been many things: former football player, third baseman for the Cardinals, broadcaster, and the Earl of Canterbury. Now he's bringing a dinner menu featuring a vast array of land and sea meats to the hungered masses. Every steak, from the 20-ounce porterhouse ($39) to the 10-ounce, dry-aged, bone-in tenderloin filet ($48), can be cooked to your specifications and served topped with bleu-cheese butter, sweet smokey rub, béarnaise sauce, horseradish mousse, or an equally salivatory sauce ($2 each). Select cuts of local, grass-fed beef from Jackson, Missouri, are also available.
For a meat that isn't cow, try seared duck breast, golden-roasted with chanterelles, petite carrots, and huckleberries under a citrus duck glaze ($32). For meat that doesn't have legs, opt for pan-seared Chilean sea bass with crispy sushi rice cake, candied shitake mushrooms, and snow peas ($32) or lobster tails (market price). Mike Shannon's tries to avoid the v-word, but it does offer a tasty "not quite meat" platter of grilled vegetables ($18) and specialty salads.
If you have as many stomachs as the cow you're eating, bookend your meal with a fancy appetizer of escargot Marseilles in crème de menthe garlic butter ($12) and a sinful dessert of blueberry gooey butter cake ($8). Wash it all down with something from Mike's encyclopedic, newbie-friendly listing of red and white wines. Tables of more than eight can combine two Groupons for $100 worth of food and drink, so treat your entire fantasy baseball team to a taste of Cardinals history.
Groupon not valid for "The Outfield"; indoor dining only. Not valid April 12, 16, 17, or 30.
- [The 8 oz. tenderloin] was tender and juicy, with a delicious charcoal sear and a rich beef flavor…The thick-cut steak fries are crisp outside, pillowy inside, and the garlic mashed potatoes — in a pile so towering it brought to mind the famous mashed-potatoes scene from Close Encounters of the Third Kind — were as light as cotton candy and nearly as sweet. – Ian Froeb, Riverfront Times
- Expect huge portions, standout first-course mussels and top-quality steaks. Service shines, and bartending is topnotch. – Gayot
- The crab cake appetizer was spicy and very unique. The prime rib? MELTED in my mouth, the best I've ever had! – stephanieakerman, Citysearch
- It is on the casual side for such a place, which makes it excellent when your [sic] out on the town. And you've got to check out the decor if your [sic] a baseball fan at all. – fan43fever, Citysearch
