BYO with a great steak, Ambler, Chestnut Hill area???

TheAmblerRambler Jun 11, 2011 02:18 PM

My brain is not working today so I'm relying in my fellow hounds for a recommendation... I'm looking for a BYO that serves an excellent steak (no preference on the cut) in the Ambler, Blue Bell, towards the city area. Many thanks!

    This suggestion may be too far out, but I loved the steak at Blackfish in Conshe.

      Bridget's has fantatistic steak, they are not normally BYO but offer BYO on Sundays.

        Thanks for the suggestions, we ended up going to Cantina Feliz, not BYO but they have an excellent NY strip (and delish margaritas)!

          Let us know about the noise level; I've heard negatives in that regard.

            From what I understand, it was an issue when they first opened but they've since installed acoustic paneling to quiet things down.

              I was there a couple weeks ago on a weeknight (around 7) and didn't find the noise to be a problem at all. It was very good and my group had a lot of fun.

                We actually sat at the bar (which I assume would be the loudest area) and didn't have any problem with the noise level. I have also heard that they recently installed acoustic paneling. I would definitely recommend trying it!
