If you happen to be stuck at the Horseshoe in Hammond Indiana, this is the best restaurant to go to. Since I was so close to New England, I had to get lobster bisque. This is one of my favorite soups. Theirs was about a 7 out of 10 on my lobster bisque scale (based on the bell curve so may vary compared to your tastes buds). I couldn't decide on steak so I got the signature steak tasting plate. It included Nebraska USDA Prime Grade Spinalis (its the top part of a pot roast and looks like skirt steak), American Wagyu "Eye" of Rib and Japanese "A-5" "Eye" of Rib (A-5 from what I've learned is the highest grade of Kobe beef). The American wagyu was my favorite. I always get my steak cooked medium well so it always comes burnt (the burnt parts are really unhealthy for you, like cancer causing unhealthy). So after I cut off all the black part there wasn't too much steak left. All the desserts were standard so I didn't get any. It was an alright dinner.
