Is Brett Favre's Steakhouse Any Good?
Brett Favre’s Steakhouse has been going strong for about 10 years in Green Bay. The restaurant, which is decked out with memorabilia from Favre’s time as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, has quite an expansive menu with steakhouse classics like French onion soup, shrimp cocktail, iceberg wedge, prime rib, surf and turf, and several cuts of steak including bone-in 20-ounce ribeye and a 32-ounce porterhouse, but there’s a big question that remains: Is it any good?
Actually, it is. Not only did we name it one of America’s Best Athlete-Owned Restaurants for 2013, most of its Yelp reviews are quite favorable, too, with an average rating of 3.5 stars with 50 reviews. One reviewer called it “a fine dining Green Bay restaurant that gets it right,” and another calls it “very classy, [with a] very professional and friendly staff.” The servers reportedly know the menu inside and out, and all of the available cuts of steak are brought to your table before you order. It’s a large restaurant with a big bar area, so there’s plenty of room to watch a game, and steaks appear to be nicely cooked.
One reviewer puts it best: “Brett Favre turned out to be a big dork, but his restaurant is great.”
