The LongHorn Steakhouse Restaurant is commonly considered one of the best Carmel restaurants, notwithstanding the fact that it’s also a chain with branches covering the Midwest, East and South of the United States. There are, in fact, ten locations in Indiana alone.
All this coverage means that they are, obviously, doing something very right. Fans call the food at the LongHorn Steakhouse “legendary,” and for good reason. The fare represents nothing short of the best of the West. That encompasses not just the authentic flavors of the West, but the patented hospitality it is known for. Voted “America’s Favorite Steakhouse” in the 28th Consumer’s Choice in Chains awards, the LongHorn Steakhouse has been proven to be long on customer satisfaction.
What exactly is authentic American West cooking, you say? It’s mostly of the stick-to-your-ribs, mouth-wateringly delicious variety that conjures up cowboys and the Marlboro Man. They work hard out West, and appetites are hardy. The LongHorn Steakhouse Restaurant has been feeding these types for many years, all fresh, premium dishes from beef to pork to chicken to seafood.
You’ll love the variety of dishes offered at this popular Carmel restaurant, too. Menu specials like the LongHorn Salmon in a bourbon marinade, the Crab-Stuffed Filet with herb and cheese sauce, and Flo’s Filet and Lobster Tail are always cropping up at the LongHorn. Both the lunch and dinner menus feature some irresistible dishes, from appetizers such as the Wild West Shrimp and the Authentic Ranch House Chili to the Shrimp and Lobster Chowder and French Onion Soup to the LongHorn’s legendary hamburgers and sandwiches. Of course, ribs and chops abound, and you can add shrimp scampi, crab gratin, bacon, lobster or baby back ribs and get serious.
There’s a wonderful collection of specialty salads on the menu, to choose as sides or as complete meals. Try the bourbon-marinated Grilled Salmon Salad, Seven-Pepper Sirloin Salad, Southern Fried Chicken Salad or the Salad and Loaded Baked Potato for down-home yumminess.
Sides include such favorites as the LongHorn’s Sweet Potato with Cinnamon and Butter, Brandied Cinnamon Apples, Seasoned Rice Pilaf, Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions, Jalapeno Cole Slaw and good old Mashed Potatoes. Save room for an Ultimate Brownie Sunday made of real Ghirardelli chocolate, a classic piece of Key Lime Pie or the sharing-worthy Chocolate Stampede for dessert. Be sure to sample the new Pineapple Goldrush Cocktails with strawberry, pineapple or tropical peach infusions for a fresh accompaniment to your meal.
