Relax and they take care of everything! Hungry Hunter is an upscale chain restaurant featuring succulent prime rib and choice steaks. Every meal is complete with a cup of soup, salad, hot bread and your choice of a baked potato, red potatoes, rice pilaf or a baked tomato topped with parmesan cheese. Before I go into the entrees it is worth mentioning the salad. Your waiter comes to your table bearing a huge lazy susan. It is filled with fresh lettuce greens and many other salad tidbits. You can make your salad selection and your dressing selection and watch it being made at your table. I prefer to leave out the lettuce and ask for the carrots, sprouts, cucumbers, and sunflower seeds. On to the main meal, if you select the prime rib you will be very happy. It is full of flavor, juicy and is served along side their Ruby Port au jus. I just love the Roasted Chateau Filet Mignon. The beef is so tender you can almost cut is with a fork. The special herb bread crumb crust is heavenly. Just the right amount of herbs and spices. And to top it off it is served with a delicious port wine sauce. For the non-beef lovers, Hungry Hunter offers a wide variety of seafood including flame broiled salmon and grilled swordfish. They also have a few chicken entrees and a rack of lamb.
Let's not forget dessert. Unfortunately, with chain restaurants they all too frequently change their menus. Hungry Hunter used to offer an incredible dessert called Dirt, and served it in a flower pot with a plastic flower. It's like eating a whipped cream filled with crushed oreo cookies. But, alas, it is gone, so I choose the Irish Cream Mousse. No disappoint here. Maybe next time I'll try the Mountain High Mudd Pie or the Walnut Carrot Cake.
The atmosphere encourages you to relax. Overstuffed chairs, comfy booths, or perhaps that table for two in front of the fireplace is the best for enjoying dinner. The service always very good. Prices are moderate.
