Dallas, TX 75287
There are many fancy restaurants in Dallas and one of them is III Forks. Serving traditional Texan restaurant serving traditional steaks and some seafood, III Forks is ranked as one of the top steak houses in Dallas. There is obviously a dress code so no shorts and such. But III Forks goes one further, I heard from friends that if you wear jeans they will seat you in an area outside of the main dining area. So I would dress well here.
The traditional styled interior:
They have very sturdy chairs and wood covered all the walls. There is even a grand piano in the waiting area where live music plays during peak dinner hours.
The outside is very crusty while the inside is very very sort and warm.
Crabcake St. Francis:
These are one of the best crab cakes I've ever had. They tell me it's 80% crab. At $16 for each one, it better be crab.
III Forks New York Strip Pepper Steak:
I usually stick to a plain New York steak wih no sauce but the gravy was alright. The steak was very soft and seared on the outside. Steak was fairly lean. With the included sides and the complimentary corn, the dish was very very filling for $36.95.
These were very soft and very fresh. I think 6 is a little too much. I'm not very keen on scallops so I was bored with the texture and taste after 3. The scallops were not flavored a lot fo it's primarily seafood tasting and just a little creamy sauce. It's pricy at $32.95.
The prices are a bit on the high side but service was good and food was high in quality. I loved the crab cake the most. The main courses were more predictable and didn't stand out to me. I was surprised by the complimentary corn and beans. We couldn't finish out own dishes so we brough home. I think this restaurant is worth a try. Perhaps you will like it more than me.
