I guess this would be considered a chain even though they only have two restaurants, one here and one in Knoxville, but my wife and I had dinner at a place called Connor's Steak & Seafood the other night and it was outstanding. The wife had ribeye and I had a 14oz NY Strip, cooked medium, and the juices were just flowing. I had grilled asparagus as a side and it was the best asparagus I've ever eaten.
With an appetizer of fried mozzarella sticks(all other apps were seafood based and I hate seafood), tip and no alcohol we were out 80 bucks.
So much better than Ruth's Chris.
