This family owned-and-operated steakhouse establishment was opened by Ralph and Norma Lewis in 1947, and has since been passed on to their son Curtis and his wife Jeannie, who changed the name from Okeechobee Drive-In to Okeechobee Steakhouse in the early 1970s. Armed with the family’s own, exclusive beef aging process that’s a guarded secret, this steakhouse creates a succulent, tender flavored meat unlike any other chophouse. Known for the best steaks and an ambiance that offers class without pretentiousness, Okeechobee Steakhouse has cooked-to-order steak platters that are consistently delicious. From the menu go for the T-bone or filet cut.
The eclectic Too Bizaare affords a shabby-chic environment while offering American and Asian cuisine, sushi and an extensive wine list. The varied Asian-infusion menu has escargot, baked brie, and chorizo pizza, along with pad Thai, curries and a 22-ounce steak. Unusual among dining experiences, patrons sit on mismatched couches in an intimate setting, with paintings and décor from local artists displayed, and for purchase. For starters, order the sushi bomb and crab-stuffed portabella, then move to the parmesan and chicken artichoke crêpe or tex steak.
