Monday night steak dinner

Please give me some ideas for a no frills (pls don't say Galatoire's or Clancy's) easy place to eat dinner tonight with my in-laws who are from the Midwest. I know Galatoire's and Clancy's are great, but not what I'm looking for, for this occasion.

I think some of the fancier places make them feel uncomfortable.

We went to Charlies steak house the other night and it was a good fit.

Need something similar to that, that is open on Monday.

  1. Is Crescent City Steakhouse open on Mondays?

      Doesn't seem to be open. A good suggestion though. Thanks. Any others?

        1. re: roro1831

          Second Crazy Johnnie's. Best bbq shrimp in town, too.

    2. Does it need to be a steakhouse? What about someplace like Mandina's? It's casual, good, and open on Monday.

        Yes- any place, as long as they have a steak on the menu.

        1. re: N.O.Food

          And, you know Mandinas is a great suggestion!

        2. Two ideas:

          The Steak Knife
          Port 'o Call

          1. Thanks y'all!
            We went to Mandinas and it was fine.
            Good serivce, fast food delivery, but the softshell crab meuniere wasn't super. Weak thin sauce, but ok. I wouldn't order it again.
            My mother in law had a shrimp po boy that looked fabulous though.
            The men enjoyed their steaks.

            I will keep the Steak Knife on the short list- anohter great idea.

            I've never had Crazy Johnnie's BBQ shrimp, will have to check it out.

            Once again- the people on the Internet to the rescue. Thanks!
