2 Great Cities, 1 Great University, so many great restaurants to choose from! Looking for a fabulously cooked steak while relaxing in a comfortable, scenic atmosphere? Look no farther than McGraw's Steak Chop and Fish House, where diners are welcomed into a restaurant overlooking the Wabash River, offering delicious, upscale food.
Have you ever been to a restaurant where you order a steak and there is so much seasoning you are overwhelmed and unsatisfied with the taste? I have had this happen too many times to count, but one place I can always count on to serve a tender and juicy steak with the perfect blend and amount of seasoning is McGraw's. This restaurant, in my opinion, offers some of the best food in Lafayette-West Lafayette. Every dish is fresh and cooked the way you specify.
I love going to McGraw's in the summer. As guests arrive at the restaurant, beautiful wild flowers and a lovely gazebo greet visitors. Upon entering this fine building (that has stood the test of time for over 200 years), we always request to be seated in the room that offers diners a view of the beautiful Wabash River. The ambience is relaxed and comfortable. The servers are very helpful in providing good tips on which wine to order with each dish and to offer any advice on what to order.
Every visit we always order their shoestring onion rings that come with a tangy dipping sauce (I recommend asking for extra sauce, it is delicious!). Their steaks, as I have mentioned, are always a hit with my family; but I would be remiss if I didn't mention their wonderful seafood. From their lightly fried catfish, to their pan-seared honey bourbon salmon, there is a great option for everyone. They have daily seafood specials that I look forward to as well. I always hope they have their fresh trout on the menu, because it is a light and refreshing dish that makes my taste buds soar.
McGraw's is a restaurant not to be missed on your next visit to our area. For more information about this restaurant and others in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, visit our website at www.HomeOfPurdue.com
