A good steak, like a good blind date, is rare. Take your stomach out on the town with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of steaks, seafood, and drinks at Regatta Steak and Seafood Grille in Gravenhurst.
The chefs at Regatta sear seafood and baste steaks against the backdrop of Muskoka Wharf's lush greenery and gentle waves. All steaks served at Regatta are AAA-certified, ensuring meat so tender it cries during car-insurance commercials. Diners can begin their dinner journey with an appetizer of baked tiger shrimp, a mountain of large, slow-roasted shrimp dotted with tomatoes and snow-capped with asiago ($14). Entrees entice eager forks with cuts such as the rib eye ($34 for 10 oz.), complete with signature sauce and optionally adorned with a crown of roasted mushrooms ($4) or a king crab leg ($12). Cuisine artists sculpt the pickerel stack ($26) by layering fresh fish with onions, roasted garlic, and parmesan cheese before attaching it to a base of mashed potatoes and accenting it with seasonal vegetables.
The lunch menu includes Regatta burgers, served with fries, rice, or salad ($13), and main courses such as the salmon grill stack, drizzled with coriander pesto ($16.50). Ample patio seating engages customers with views of boats and the tree-lined lakeshore, providing the romance of dining waterside without the pesky sneezing of sirens with seasonal allergies.
