Whaling Station Steakhouse
If you want to go all-out at a steakhouse in Monterey, Whaling Station is your best bet. Their dry-aged steaks are sourced from the best butchers in the country and presented on a platter to choose from before being cooked to order. We generally go for the beef wellington, or the prime rib with crispy-airy Yorkshire pudding made from the pan drippings and a side of horseradish cream that cuts through the richness. The atmosphere is old-school traditional with dim lighting and burgundy tablecloths, versatile enough to work for date night or dinner with the family.
