prime rib and steakhouse at lucky eagle casino and hotel

lucky-eagleSomething new awaits steak lovers at the Prime Rib and Steakhouse at Lucky Eagle Casino and Hotel. Fusing local ingredients and a vision for creating an unforgettable dining experience is setting the steakhouse apart from restaurants in the area.

Located southwest of Olympia in Rochester, Lucky Eagle is situated among dozens of farms, providing the inspiration for a regionally inspired menu.

For Aaron Breen, room chef, and Darren Ahlf, assistant food and beverage director, taking a fresh approach to the menu meant the opportunity to showcase local offerings from the region’s farms, ranches and wineries. “We are fortunate to be surrounded by so many great farms,” says Breen. He is moving away from traditional methods and toward a farm-to-fork approach, starting with meat selections. The beef comes from the highly acclaimed Double R Ranch in Loomis, Washington, where sustainability and animal well-being contribute to producing premium cuts of beef. The butchering is done in-house and then the beef undergoes an extensive aging process, resulting in a delicious cut of steak for diners.

The beverage menu has also been revived to include products from the region’s wineries. “We have elevated our beverage program to include regional wines and hand-crafted
cocktails,” says Ahlf. He has worked extensively with Quilceda Creek and Leonetti Cellar in Walla Walla to bring in select wines such as highly sought-after merlots and cabernet sauvignons not previously available at the restaurant. Wines are paired with menu items to offer guests a unique dining experience. Hand-crafted beer from local breweries is also offered as well as specialty spirits from local distilleries.

The restaurant’s atmosphere is intimate and inviting, the perfect place to enjoy seasonal offerings from delectable steak to fine wine. The Prime Rib and Steakhouse is open Wednesday through Sunday for dinner.

Reservations are highly recommended but not required.
