New Steak House opens in Sterling “Here’s the Meat!”

The Central Peninsula has a new steak house! It’s Chef Steve Drolet’s Porterhouse Grill and his goal is to serve the highest quality custom cut steaks in Alaska cooked to perfection. Located on the Sterling Highway formerly known as the Napetown restaurant in Sterling, the Porterhouse Grill offers the perfect choice of decors from traditional American coffee shop atmosphere to a fine dining room suitable for any diner date occasion. “We’re specializing in having the best custom cut steaks in town, like you’d get off your grill at home. We’ve got huge porterhouse cuts, T-bones, rib eyes and filet mignon’s cut to meet the biggest or most petite of appetites. And if surf is your preference we have the best and freshest from the sea including king crab, lobster, shrimp, halibut and salmon. Basically I’m trained and specialize in comfort, soul satisfying American style food with the best steaks around being my signature. I go out and search for them then have them cut to my specifications anywhere from a 42 oz. to a 20 oz. cut for those not so hungry different sizes for different appetites we even have a 10 oz. for folks wanting just a small steak,” said Drolet.

Chef Drolet says he’s new to the north having been born in Santa Barbara, CA moved to Florida and ended cooking in Hawaii then moved to Cancun, Mexico and returned to Las Vegas to open up a few restaurants then realized that he wanted to retire where he could enjoy fishing and the great outdoors, “I’m loving it and saw the need for a really nice restaurant that would be something everyone could enjoy from the working man or woman for a hardy lunch, husband and wife out for a date or the whole family where everyone will find something that is their favorite on the menu,” he said. This Saturday night, Valentine’s Day the Porterhouse Grill will offer lovers specials for people who want to try out something new that’s guaranteed to please, “We’ve already established quite a following, but we’d love to meet some new people and have them try us out. We will be taking reservations for Valentine’s evening with servings from 6:00 to 9:00pm. We had a fantastic New Year’s Eve turn out and for Valentines were offering filet mignon with lobster or king crab and other specials including a rack of lamb or Cornish hen that will knock your Valentine’s socks off. We can offer you a cozy corner or tell us how many and we’ll set up for your party,” said Drolet.

The Porterhouse Grill is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring an expresso coffee bar and a daily menu that features nothing but purely homemade style from scratch recipes. “This is the land of the hearty homesteader and we promise meals that will match their legendary appetites and lure their grandchildren to come home to Alaska.” For reservations call 907-953-8210. The Porterhouse Grill is open from 9:00am – 9:00pm Monday-Saturday and Sunday 9:00am – 7:00pm.
