Deadeye Dicks Steakhouse

This Week Deadeye Dicks Steakhouse, Ever on the search for a good steak meal me and my wife go bravely forth again to bring you our latest en-devour.

Deadeye Dicks Steakhouse is newly opened on Front Beach Road, Panama City Beach, so here we go…

We were greeted and taken to a table the service is polite and attentive, even if inexperienced and it shows but being new place it is to be expected.

Seating

Inside

The ambiance is what you would expect, bland and functional, there is nothing wrong with that as far as it goes but i would of liked it a little more in fitting with the theme.

This place does offer a salad bar, i found it underwhelming so i did not have anything off it.

The whole place seems to be wrapped up in pomp and this will become more evident later as i continue this review, the salad bar is crowned with various wines and spirits in great big bottles.

I am aware it is straight forward that restaurants want to push their drink as this can go as far as 50% of the over all meal cost but i found it all tacky.

We made our orders and was brought a bread basket, the orange blossom bread was so good, you wish they would of brought you more.

My wife ordered the Capt Steak a chopped salad and potato logs.

The salad was more pomp, instead of being a nice clean fresh salad it had way too much going on.

She ordered it without the blue cheese and it come with nuts that was not too good, and the over all portion was small and poor, my wife leaving salad is not a natural thing.

Her Steak had a over powering taste of garlic, it needs to be said that the steak was cooked correctly just she was unable to finish the steak since it had so much garlic that it made the whole thing inedible.

Then we come to my wifes, potato logs, her logs seemed more overly cooked than mine and she did not manage to finish them.

Mixed Grill

Mixed Grill

To the left you see what i decided on, my pick was the mixed grill.

Though the name suggests it was mixed, the flavor profile sure as heck was not as all i could taste was the over powerful taste of garlic.

The sirloin had garlic butter on it and what seemed to be cooked in some chopped or minced garlic that had been cooked with it.

The sausage tasted mostly of smoked garlic sausage, the chicken thigh was garlic again but a little too pink near the bone for me to risk too much as eating uncooked chicken is dangerous.

The ribs are the only good thing on the plate, my choice was a wet rib meaning i had of course the sauce and it was so good.

My sides were smashed cauliflower (more like obliterated cauliflower), it was nothing more than a paste or better description would be a thick soup.

And that left my potato logs,  i kind of did not mind them though some were bordering on over cooked.

This meal should of been more considering the excessive price of almost $80, yes it is over priced for garlic with more garlic on the side.. you would expected it to taste a lot better.

They are trying way to hard for something that should be presented clean and simple that they should have down, but fails because of pomp, ever heard of the old saying “jack of all trades, master of none” that describes the Deadeye Dicks Steakhouse.

Too much going on the menu and it is hard to believe a menu with hundreds of items would have any consistency, especially between maybe a number of chefs, visit several days and get several versions of the same meal due to chef style.

Nothing we had would even persuade us to be going back anytime soon, overall this would NOT be a place suggested for you.
