Dallas Dinner for 4 on Jul 26

I am late making reservations for tonight. Suggestions on where I should eat that may have an opening aroung 7:30? I am looking for a place with good steak and seafood. To give you a flavor of what I am looking for, I checked to following on Open Table, none of which had anything around 7 or 7:30.

Screen Door (wanted to try it, but nothing after 5:00)

Hibiscus (a favorite, but nothing before 8:30)

Pyles (nothing before 9)

Charlie Palmers (nothing before 9)

Fearings (nothing before 9)

Abacus (nothing at all)

  1. Al Biernat's, Bob's Chop House, Perry's, Capitol Grille (probably your best chance).

    Also, I would call directly instead of relying on Open Table to some of your favorites (they might get you in or have a cancellation that is not on the Inter tubes).

      Thanks. Went to Perrys. I used to eat there a lot, but stopped about a year ago because it was too dark and there was so much competition in the steak house area. Anyway, we had a good meal last night. The tuna tartar app was great. The ceasor was good, but had too much dressing. I had the filet, which was nice, but one side was cooked more than the other. The sides were better than I remembered. I found the desserts lacking for a steak house. Overall, though, nice meal.

        Has Perry's added a Espresso machine? This is the one place in Dallas i would not go again for steak. Just did not measure up.

          I had the same experience. I'd go to Pappas Bros or Biernat's before I'd go back to Perry's.

            I agree that Pappas Bros is better than Perrys. But, for me, it is a longer drive. I would go just for the Moon Pie, though. I am indifferent about Biernat's--had some great and not so great meals there.
