Damon's Steak House Restaurant Review

: This is one of the oldest restaurants in the area, drawing loyal patrons with good steaks since 1937. Locals don’t seem to mind its campy Polynesian décor, probably because they’re too busy devouring complete steak dinners. From its Hawaiian murals, images of monkeys, abundant bamboo, and aquariums stocked with tropical fish, you’d expect pu pu platters and kalua pork, but the bar’s famous mai tai is the only concession to the interior. Though there are pasta, barbecue and seafood options, steaks are the specialty of the house --- not the quality of Arnie Morton’s, but also one-third the price --- accompanied by an iceberg lettuce, beet and celery salad with a tangy house dressing or soup, as well as a choice of sides, such as a twice-baked potato, sugar snap peas or yellow rice. Add a decent shrimp cocktail and some soggy but addictive garlic bread, and you’ve got a veritable feast. The orange layer cake is like an old-school 50/50 bar, and the wine list offers a few unexpected surprises from California.
