My dad used to always say, “Never go to a seafood place if you want a good hunk of Prime Rib.” Now dad was right about most everything, but he was completely wrong on this point because the best Prime Rib around can be found every Thursday night at one of the best seafood restaurants in town…The Swordfish Grill & Tiki in Cortez.
The Thursday night tradition started a few years back to coincide with Blues on the Bay, a weekly Blues Jam hosted by local Bluesman, Jason Haram, and has become an unbeatable combination for anyone one who loves good music and good food.
It all starts with a hand-selected roast of farm raised, grain fed angus beef, slow roasted after a secret combination of herbs and spices that make up the dry rub is generously applied to infuse an explosion of flavor into every mouthwatering bite. Served with sautéed veggies, mashed potatoes and au jus, cooked to perfection and served in two portion sizes, you are guaranteed to not to walk away hungry or too full. Believe it or not, you get all this deliciousness for just $17.99! (price subject to change and while it lasts)
General Manager, Bob Slicker says, “the Prime Rib is so good because my daughter loves Prime Rib and I never want to be at a restaurant where she has Prime Rib and turns to me and says dad this is better than yours”!
So, the next time someone tells you that you can’t get a great Prime Rib at a seafood place, take them up to the Swordfish on Thursday night and make them eat their words. They will thank you for it! The Swordfish Grill and Tiki is located in the heart of Historic Cortez Village at 4628 119th Street West.
