A true 5 Star Dining Experience! 


For those of you who have not known me long, I used to have a Lap-Band and with that Lap-Band I was unable to eat steak! NO STEAK since the year 2000.  This is a steak lover talking. It was total torture!  In March I had to have my band removed as it was causing severe GERD, Barrett’s Esophagus (pre cancerous condition) and also interfering with my Lupus and making me more ill.  After healing, all I wanted was a great steak.  I went out and ordered steak at several restaurants and was totally disappointed, until I hit the Longhorn Steakhouse with my daughter in Palm Harbor, Florida a few weeks ago.  Let me tell you, I was in pure steak ecstasy at the Longhorn Steakhouse!
