Where: 3627 State Street, 687-1616, teeoffsb.com.
What: A favorite for hearty meat entrees and hefty cocktails.
How Much: Entrées $17.95-$39.95, club menu $9.95-$18.95.
The Dish: A fluorescent-lit martini glass adorns the Tee-Off’s neon signage, which makes it a tough spot to miss on upper State Street. This old-school neighborhood steakhouse and bar makes people feel as if they’ve stepped into a time warp with its retro ambience and traditional steak/prime rib-focused menu. USDA Prime meats make up a large chunk of the dining options, ranging from filet mignon to crusted sirloin. The USDA Prime Filet Oscar plates tender filet medallions topped with king crab, asparagus, and a rich béarnaise sauce. Prime rib is the house specialty—slow-roasted and served au jus with a creamed spicy horseradish in single- and double-bone cuts. Seafood options include scallops, scampi, and king crab legs, while the club menu has the Tee-Off Burger and fish ’n’ chips. The Big Bertha is a house favorite, a filling bone-in rib eye, as are the strong cocktails that this establishment has become known and loved for over the years.
