THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Mike Shannon's Steak & Seafood Restaurant Review: In the classic steakhouse style of décor---dark wood, brass, green walls---Mike Shannon's manages to avoid testosterone overdose. Can this be done in proximity to the home fields of both the Rams and the Cardinals in a joint co-owned by a former Cardinals' third baseman? Yup. Despite the vast number of pictures, and walls that almost seem to bulge with souvenirs, this has more of a family atmosphere than any other steakhouse within a mile of I-64 (U.S. 40). Lots of out-of-towners populate the dining rooms earlier in the evening, but later, especially after ball games, locals become the majority. This is classic American food, chicken noodle soup, spinach salad, escargot and bruschetta---the cross-section of cuisine that comes to American dining tables these days. Spinach salad avoids the awful sugary dressings some curse it with; the bruschetta manage to be flavorful despite suboptimal tomatoes. The quality of beef here is what keeps many visitors coming back, and we agree. Desserts are homey and can be rewarding.
