Sometimes fine dining sounds tempting, but dressing up in Sunday’s best isn’t necessarily what one’s aiming for after a long workweek.
In a union of casual and fine dining, FireRock Steakhouse, 5990 Centennial Center Blvd., is here to appeal to everyone.
Extending from its Casper, Wyo., origins, FireRock recently opened in the northwest to offer its carnivorous message of “steak, chops, seafood.”
The casual-yet-upbeat restaurant features a warm atmosphere complete with paper table covers and crayons for kids and adults to use.
Its modestly priced menu features traditional American food, including burgers, pastas and steaks.
Appetizers feature crab cakes ($9.95), which include a jumbo lump crab in cream, pan-seared with a Parmesan crust and topped with roasted red pepper sauce. The stuffed mushrooms ($10.50) are hand-stuffed with fresh herb Boursin cheese and crabmeat.
Sandwiches include the Monte Cristo ($11.50) with slow-roasted turkey, smoked ham, Swiss cheese and mayonnaise, piled high on a triple-deck sandwich, and the barbecue pork sandwich ($8.95) with slow-braised barbecue pork, caramelized pepper bacon, barbecue sauce and roasted peanut coleslaw.
It also has a wide variety of seafood options, including Alaskan king crab legs, steamed or broiled lobster tail and stuffed red snapper. Seafood dishes start at $18.95.
Other classics include the St. Louis-style barbecue ribs ($15.95), beer can chicken ($15.50) and maple pecan-crusted pork medallions ($14.95).
It serves certified Angus beef aged a minimum of 28 days and cooked over almond and oak on a wood fire grill.
Despite having a heavy meat focus, vegetarians can also choose from the veggie burger ($10.50), served with sprouts, cucumbers, tomato, honey mustard and Swiss cheese; beet salad ($6.25), which comes with soft, ruby red beets stuffed with ricotta cheese, honey and pistachios; or the Caprese salad ($6.50) with vine-ripened tomatoes stacked with fresh basil and whole-milk mozzarella, marinated with extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic reduction.
The restaurant took over the former Stoney’s North Forty Saloon & Barbecue and features a full bar with 12 video gaming machines.
It also has outdoor seating, making it an ideal place to go when the weather cools down in the fall months.
