Good Steak House in Vermont
Are there any good steak houses in Vermont? I used to like Sirloin Saloon as a decent "mid-level" steak house but there has been new ownership a few times in the past several years and it really has gone downhill, IMHO.
I'm mainly interested in the Rutland to Burlington corridor, as I work in Rutland and used to live in Burlington so I find myself there quite often.

I enjoyed a steak at the Blue Cat on St. Paul in Burlington (upstairs from Magnolia), a small, upscale steakhouse. Also, the Scuffer on Church Street, since it was sold and remodeled, has been a reliable middle of the road steakhouse. While neither are considered steak houses, the steak frites at Sonoma Station in Richmond is marvelous, and while pricey, you can't beat The Kitchen Table, also in Richmond, which usually has a steak on the menu.

I've eaten at Souza's when it was at its previous location and I enjoyed it immensely. The meat is saltier than we're used to, and that's possibly to make you order more drinks, or possibly because that's how they serve it in Brazil. I wouldn't know from that. We only haven't eaten there again because all you can eat places are no longer anything like a value for us since we got our surgery.
I liked it a lot when i had it, though, despite the saltiness.
Do not, I repeat, do NOT go to the Steakhouse on the Barre Montpelier road. It's awful.
Gristly meat (even the high end cuts), not cooked to order very well. Mediocre sides (if you're lucky), and wilted everything on the salad bar. It's just totally not worth the price.
ETA: You've been warned!
