Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse, 3500 Tyrone Blvd N, St Petersburg, FL.
Walking into Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse, you know you’re in for a great meal. The sights, scents, and sounds strike the right notes for a successful experience. An upscale, warm and woody interior with lots of wine bottles and elegant décor, the delightful scent of garlic and yeast rolls baking, and the server saying it’s Prime Rib special day AND Happy Hour. What more could you want?!
There was no hemming and hawing. I want a one pound Prime Rib, rare with creamy horseradish sauce on the side, Cesar’s salad, garlic mashed, and the House Merlot. Upon ordering, the server placed a small vessel of homemade garlic croutons on the table. I munch a few before my salad arrives. Yummy! Salads are brought and no skimping on anything! Heavy duty on all ingredients, including dressing. I have no problem with that, but if you do, ask for it on the side. The yeast dinner rolls are delish and a nice throwback to when you’d receive a bread basket at the table. Rarely do you get that anymore. The salad and dinner roll were a nice start. I stopped short of finishing my salad to prepare for the main event!
Da da da dah! The Prime Rib has arrived. Thick, pink, moist, succulent…a thing of beauty. Au jus and creamy horseradish are waiting for a piece of meat to take a dip and just then it does. OMGGGGG….the Prime Rib is perfect and somehow even better skinny dipping in the au jus, then dunked in the horseradish sauce. Take a sip of the Merlot and there is a cacophony of righteousness in my mouth! What a major fab pairing! Their house Merlot is an excellent choice with this entrée. I love potatoes of any sort, but rarely eat them at home, only when I’m out. The homemade garlic mashed was a treat! Just the right amount of creaminess and garlic. Sensational!
If you’re in the Tampa area, a happy carnivore, and adore Prime Rib, make your way over to St Petersburg to Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse. You will leave very satisfied and with a gigantic grin. Psst….grab some of their candy coated mints before you walk out the door. Refreshing!
