Newport, Irvine Area Steak/Chicken/Seafood Recs Under $30 entree

Looking for a place in Newport Beach, Tustin, Irvine, Laguna Beach area for a seafood/chicken (for me) and steak (for husband) restaurant that can't be missed. Preferably under $30 per entree, although for a good steak can go a bit above. We've been to the Bungalow, Oysters, Landmark...that's all I can think of now. Also wouldn't mind a good crabcake...
Birthday is this weekend so any help I can get before then is greatly appreciated!

  1. Gulfstream on Saturday night (Crabcake Night!!) definitely fits the bill for you. They have a very good steak, a large fish selection, some chicken & my fav crabcakes in OC. BTW, was there for the 1st time on a Tuesday recently - Tues Nt Special is BBQ's Shrimp - served in a skillet, 6 plump shrimp with this amazing sauce I couldn't get enough of, white rice to cool the kick off a bit & some thick & weird but tasty toast point things - will definitely return on a Tuesday!

    Other thing people rave about are their deep fried oysters - guy sitting next to us comes in and orders 3 plates in a row all the time. They sound scary to me, but have had several people recommend them - will try next time if it's not a Tuesday or Saturday! Bungalow would also fit the bill - I like the atmosphere much better there, but Gulfstream's meaty crabcakes can't be beat.
