A long fly ball from the new Busch Stadium, the new Mike Shannon’s Steak and Seafood is, like its namesake, larger than life and in love with baseball. Search among the memorabilia for your favorite hall of famer’s jersey while you enjoy a prime (and expensive) steak — or while you have a beer or two at the bar after the game. The menu is classic steak house, the steaks unadorned but bloody good. For those who prefer more nuanced flavors, consider the daily seafood special or the lamb chops. They aren’t the reason you come to a place like Shannon’s — but they, and the buzz of dozens of excited Cardinals fans, are the reason you’ll come back.
Mike Shannon’s has major league class, starting at the top with the family members who operate the restaurant on behalf of the former Cardinals third baseman. There’s nothing old-fashioned about this menu full of classic dishes; from mac ‘n’ cheese with truffle panko to quinoa-crusted crab cakes, the recipes are as American as deep-dish upside-down apple pie, and the huge portions of quality beef and fish will challenge even the sturdiest appetite. Most of the time, the restaurant comes off as an upscale steakhouse full of people sitting amid glass-fronted cabinets where baseballs, bats and jerseys repose as objets d’art. But come game day, a thousand red-clad fans pack The Outfield, the casual outdoor patio facing Busch Stadium. Service shines and bartending is topnotch. To make the lengthywine list more approachable, it’s broken down into sections for critic ratings, varietals, geographic regions and so on. The aforementioned restaurant namesake does his sports show from the premises after Friday home games.
