Adventures of Gus and Kim: Dinner in Jacksonville - The Millhouse Steak House

Don't you love finding a great restaurant?

Gus and I recently flew to Jacksonville, Florida. As you know, if you're a reader of our 'Adventures of Gus and Kim' posts, we enjoy trying new restaurants - especially ones that are locally-owned.

We originally planned to eat in the Hilton Garden Inn's Great American Grill® since we were staying there and we were tired. But as I was scanning Facebook, a notification popped up saying that we were near three popular restaurants - one of which was the Millhouse Steak House. The desk clerk confirmed that it was a good choice, so we decided to give it a try.

It was almost 6pm when we arrived, which meant the restaurant was filling up with the dinner crowd, but we were able to get a table right away. I would describe the decor as homey Italian - with dark wood and maroon leather booths/chairs, and Italian food-related artwork.

chips and queso

We were starving, so we ordered the Trés Queso Dip - goat cheese, queso blanco, mozzarella and jalapeños, served with warm tortilla chips. The dip was delicious! If it had jalapeños in it, there must not have been many, because there was no spiciness or heat at all. I prefer the thin tortilla chips (like at Chuy's and Chili's), and these were the thicker ones. But as I said, the dip was delicious.

dinner rolls, butter, and dipping oils

The waitress also brought a plate with warm dinner rolls, butter, and a couple of different dipping oils. They were my favorite rolls - lightly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I went with butter, but Gus used the dipping oils.

mahi mahi and rice

For his entree, Gus ordered the Almond Encrusted Mahi Mahi drizzled with an aged balsamic reduction, and served with rice pilaf. It also came with seasonal vegetables, but he substituted a second serving of rice. He does love his carbs.

salmon, rice, & veggies

I ordered the Whiskey Bourbon Salmon, which was broiled Norwegian salmon with a glaze made from whole grain mustard, Kentucky bourbon, soy sauce, and brown sugar. It was served with rice pilaf and seasonal veggies.

We both cleaned our plates. Mahi is one of Paul's favorite dishes, while Norwegian salmon is one of mine, and these didn't disappoint. Our waitress was great, too. She was very pleasant and attentive, making sure our glasses were always full.

carrot cake

Gus had a Kahlua and cream after-dinner drink for his dessert, and I was too full to eat any more. But I didn't want to miss out, so I ordered the carrot cake to go. It was really moist and had plenty of delicious cream cheese frosting.

We would definitely recommend stopping by the Millhouse Steak House if you're in the Jacksonville area. They also have three restaurants in Georgia - in Brunswick, Kingsland, and Statesboro.
