McKendrick's Steak House Restaurant Review

: McKendrick's has long held destination-steakhouse status in Atlanta, turning out skillfully prepared meat in a white tablecloth setting, complemented by an extensive red-focused wine list, good craft beers and premium liquors, not to mention well-trained, professional service. Lobster bisque is a menu signature, and deservedly so. The bone-in filet, once an occasional special, now is a regular selection, although the rib-eye provides the rich, beefy flavor we enjoy as well. If dining with a chum, consider sharing the porterhouse steak. Contemplate, too, the crab cakes, the soft-shell crabs when in season, tempura lobster, oysters Rockefeller or any of several fish dishes. For lunch, smaller steaks at smaller prices rule, but the burger, a glorious indulgence of quality meat, bacon and cheese, is worth a trip. Everything is à la carte, even the béarnaise sauce for your steak, so bring your gold card. Those who eschew meat may dine on a fine array of well-prepared vegetables or opt for a salad. Desserts are all made in-house; we recommend the Key lime pie. McKendrick's is located in a pleasant park-like shopping center across from Perimeter Mall.
