The Steakhouse moves to Sails

It was the end of an era when the Steakhouse restaurant closed a few weeks back. There were a few familiar faces there on the final night, where we had the usual: 3x kids steak with an ice cream and choc sauce chaser, two rib eyes, medium, one with béarnaise sauce and the other with [...]
