UnmiSTEAKable Cuts During Lake County Restaurant Week 2021

The stakes are unmistakably high in the land of lakes. Feed your belly with unmiSTEAKable cuts during Lake County Restaurant Week through May 23.

It’s not hard to find a great steakhouse in Lake County.

Longtime actor Robert Duvall known for such flicks as the Godfather series, ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Apostle,’ says it correctly, “I take a vitamin every day; it’s called steak.”

No matter what your fancy is: T-Bone, ribeye, filet mignon, sirloin or some other mouthwatering cut, Lake County steakhouses will fulfill your beefy needs.

Let’s FLANK to a Lake County Restaurant Week eatery this week and beyond, rest our TENDERLOINS in one of these fine steakhouses, and eat like we’re CLUB members. Remember to FLAT IRON your khakis and SKIRTS before entering. (Are any of these steak puns working for you?).
