Around for 40 years, Hunter Steakhouse is an Oceanside institution serving classic American dishes in a welcoming, homey environment. Service is friendly and efficient. The full bar provides a nice selection of wines along with throwback house cocktails such as the Hunter Manhattan and Landslide Martini.
The old school menu features standard steakhouse fare from onion rings to au gratin potatoes to filet mignon. To start, enjoy a complimentary mini loaf of warm squaw bread with whipped honey butter. For variety, try the Appetizer Sampler with lump crabmeat stuffed-mushrooms, loaded potato skins and crispy calamari drizzled with ancho chili mayonnaise. Portions are hearty and all entrees come with a choice of creamy New England Clam Chowder, Caesar Salad or Tableside Salad Bar plus a side option.
Seafood entrees include traditional Shrimp Scampi Linguini with a buttery, garlic lemon sauce. Meat lovers should opt for the popular specialty of the house: herb crusted, slow roasted prime rib served with au jus and horseradish.
