The first fish was inadvertently caught by a coastal hunter who dredged the sea floor in hopes of yanking its plug and crossing to find hearty steaks on the other side. Dine on beasts of both the land and sea with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of steak, seafood, drinks, and more at Star Steak & Lobster House, located at the gateway to the French Quarter, two doors down from the House of Blues.
Star Steak & Lobster House shines a spotlight on dinner's most delectable duo of surf 'n' turf. After a grinny greeting from "Famous Joey," the devoted doorman of 28 years, treat tablemates to an order of barbecue shrimp ($8.50) or grilled cajun gator sausage ($7.50) while perusing Star's steak-and-seafood-studded menu for an entree.
The stuffed cajun filet mignon packs USDA prime beef with crab and lobster meat, shrimp, and crawfish tails, then bathes the potpourri of protein in a red-wine mushroom sauce ($32). A trio of Louisiana crab cakes stays supple with crawfish cream sauce ($21), and the whole Maine lobster tests the might and cracking capabilities of humanoid hands ($29). All entrees come with a choice of two tasty sides, such as creamed spinach, a baked potato, sautéed mushrooms, or steak fries that can be fashioned into a cushy bunk bed for an elevated appetite.
Dressed in warm, crimson hues, fresh linens, and elegant chandeliers, Star Steak & Lobster House's interior sets the mood for an intimate repast, whether joined by friends or the cast and crew of the hit British sitcom ’Allo! 'Allo!. And while the menu might tempt overindulgence, diners are able to pace themselves by chewing to the live jazz and blues beats of house musician James Dee (Wednesday–Sunday, 6–10 p.m.). This Groupon is not valid for happy hour at the bar (1–7 p.m.).
Star Steak and Lobster House
For more than 30 years, Star Steak and Lobster House's doorman Joey has been opening the restaurant's door to fill the French Quarter sidewalks with the aromas of aged USDA prime steaks and buttery lobster. After passing through the entryway, patrons can take their seats at sleek wooden tables to share Cajun gator sausage with creole sauce and housemade Louisiana crab cakes glazed with crawfish and mushroom cream sauce. Signature dinner entrees include slow-roasted prime rib and the Cajun filet mignon stuffed with crab, lobster, shrimp, and crawfish tails. To complement the food's lively flavors, every Wednesday through Sunday night bands perform jazz, blues, and classic rock tunes while bartenders mix black-cherry-peach mojitos and pour pint glasses of beer into other pint glasses until infinity is achieved.
