Shades Café & Steakhouse is this weeks Travel Thursday. This restaurant is located in Middlesboro, KY. Just north of the Tennessee, Kentucky line. This is my review.
This spot is about an hour drive from me. My wife always talked great things about them. Plus my bosses wife has too.
I got to visit them and got a 10 oz. ribeye with Mac and cheese. My wife got the steak tips with Brussels sprouts. Plus each came with a salad.
I ordered my ribeye medium, but it came out medium well. The steak tasted good. I didn’t need any steak sauce. However, it could have used more just a little bit more seasoning. Overall it was a good steak. The mac and cheese was good too.
I did get to try a bite of my wife’s steak tips and they were good too. I thought they had more seasoning than my ribeye. But that could be because they were cooked with onions and other things too.
That bread they serve with the meal was very yummy. I enjoyed the honey butter with it too. I actually think the bread was the best thing.
Our waitress was very friendly and on top of things.
I will be back. They are a bit of a pricey place, but well worth it.
We didn’t get anything for this review. We paid for our own meals.
