Raindancer Steak House (West Palm Beach)
***** Raindancer Steak House, 2300 Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard, West Palm Beach, Florida 33409 (561) 684-2810.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had it with these “upscale” steakhouses…you know the ones, Morton’s New York Prime, Ruth’s Cris, Chops, Abe & Louie’s (just to name a few), that cost you an arm and a leg and have servers that make you feel as if you are an idiot. You know exactly what I am talking about…These are the joints, where nothing and I do mean nothing, comes with the steak/entree and salads and sides cost you a day’s pay…
If you are in the mood for a real good steak or some top-notch seafood, give Raindancer Steak House a try. The joint has been around since 1975… Real easy going (tee shirt/shorts do just fine here), no white-table cloths, great food, great “attitude-less” wait-staff. Take a look at Raindancer’s website at www.raindancersteakhouse.com for menu/prices/details.
Just so we are straight, Raindancer isn’t some $9.99 salad/steak/side joint. Just off the top of my head, a “soup to nuts” steak-meal is going to run you something like 50 bucks a head, give or take a few dollars. This joint’s seafood is as good as its meat game. Another beautiful thing about Raindancer, is that all entrees come with a potato or rice pilaf side and a fantastic salad bar…don’t think Shoney’s, or Golden Corral…
You now have a great steak-seafood house, that’s not going to break you. The joint is open, Sunday-Thursday 5pm-10pm and Friday-Saturday 5pm-10:30pm.
Don’t let this get around! I ate at the Raindancer the night it opened and have been eating there ever since. It is without a doubt the best steak place around. You have it right–the Morton’s, etc. are OK, Ruth’s, in my opinion, is really a mess, but this place is awesome! Don’t tell anyone, OK? By the way, for the other FL oldtimers out there, remember right up the street about two doors there was a great place called Manero’s? Too bad you missed it, Jeff. It was Italian with a capital I, and the owner wandered the room saying hi to everyone, and it was a big place. We were just a bunch of snotty 20-something kids, but he welcomed us, too. Now, about the bar across PBL Blvd that isn’t there anymore…well, nevermind! Okeechobee Steakhouse isn’t bad, either, by the way, but give me the Raindancer any time.
