Bobby Van's Steakhouse, Washington, DC

Bobby Van's Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Bobby Van's interior suggests a men’s club, with dark leather upholstery, and the menu stars filet, porterhouse, sirloin and rib-eye plus selected seafood (Maine lobster, scallops, pepper shrimp and crab cakes). If you drop by for lunch, try the Caesar salad with shaved Parmesan, although the huge ten-ounce hamburger nestled among fries and onion curls is also a draw, plus there is a burger stuffed with blue cheese. The dinner menu features the aforementioned, and very serious, beef and seafood dishes, so take your pick. Check the daily specials before ordering --- the clam chowder is a big success --- and save room for the house-made desserts, including chocolate truffle cake. Be sure to scan the extensive wine list for an interesting pairing. Bobby Van's has a second location on New York Avenue, known as Bobby Van's Grill.

Looking for lunch nothing more!

Is this place safe for women? The atmosphere is definitely male. The steaks are big and geared for someone with a big appetite. Little did I expect that it was like a meat market. I was in the market for lunch, not to be pawned over by old man who thought he was just so cute with his lines of yesteryear.
