My friends and I had a birthday dinner for a friend at Maury's Tiny Cove on the West side of Cincinnati.

http://www.maurystinycove.com/

Maury's is an old school steakhouse. I had heard mixed reviews, but we were all very satisfied with food and service. The current owner, Paul Yamaguchi, was very involved with our dining experience, making sure we were satisfied with every aspect of our meal.

When Paul asked about my picture taking, I told him about Roadfood. He was very interested, and let me take his picture, too!!

Here he is by the front door, featuring a cow with a martini:




Same cow with martini on the outdoor signage:










FRENCH ONION SOUP:




CAESAR SALAD:




PRIME RIB {my friend ordered it medium, which I think is overcooked, but it wasn't mine, and she enjoyed it}:




Fried Shrimp with spinach & noodles-While I am not usually a fan of fried, these was not greasy and very crunchy & meaty:




My Filet & Shrimp, with sides of bearnaise & cocktail sauce:




Veg of the day-Brussel sprouts- with filet & lobster tail in the back:




Hamburger Steak for the senior member of our group. This really looks good:




And, last, but not least, Twin Lobster Tails:




This was really a great meal and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and appreciated. Overall a great dining experience. I highly recommend it for a retro steakhouse experience.

That is looking like a place I would like to go to (could have let the cheese melt on the soup more). Good Pics.

I'd like to know what they breaded the shrimp with. They look so good! Well, actually all of it does.

Years ago, when my wife and I would go to Taste of Cincinnati, she would always start with Maury's marinated vegetable salad and end with a second helping. We never went to the restaurant, because it did not feature a no-smoking section at the time. Sooz, did you notice if that salad is still on the menu?

I used to hear Ray Scott on WNOP-AM do commercials for Maury's . . .

jmckee~

I don't remember seeing the marinated veggie salad on the menu. I didn't take a picture of the house salad, though. It was in a LARGE bowl, and consisted of shredded lettuce, and other veggies. I didn't have this, but the ones who did really liked it.

I must be hungry ... even the Brussels sprouts look great.

So does the martini.

I want that Onion Soup. The Brussel Sprouts make my wife sick...she's hated them ever since her pregnancies!
