THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Jared's Restaurant Review

: As the occupant of the lower deck of a sternwheeler restaurant that used to be known as the Reuben E. Lee, this luxury steakhouse enjoys an unrivaled view of downtown San Diego rising across the bay. The interior delights with such details as a display kitchen walled entirely in beaten copper, and as at Morton’s, the menu is presented by means of a cart laden with thick steaks, extravagant cuts of seafood and live Maine lobsters. Simplicity is the watchword here, with the five-onion tart serving as a good lead-in to a grilled filet mignon, rib-eye or Porterhouse with a delicately crisp potato cake. The wine list is dandy, and with meat this prime, tender and flavorful, most opt to splurge on a good California Cabernet.
