Steel City Samich – Steel City Brewhouse

There has been a recent building boom in my neck of the woods, and I could not be happier about that fact. New apartments, new shopping centers, and new businesses abound in North St. Petersburg. A welcome recent addition next to the Gateway Crossing Shopping Center is the Steel City Brewhouse. (It is where the old Hooter’s was located. I sadly went on a first date to that particular restaurant; I really am thankful every day that my single-gal days are over!)

We were seated immediately and offered a beer menu. They do not brew their own beer at this location, but there is a pretty solid variety to choose from. I opted for the White Lightning, which was delicious.

As the name suggests, the menu is an homage to all things Pittsburgh in nature. Also, we were informed that pretty much everything is made from scratch right in the Steel City kitchen. For an appetizer, you simply must have the Stuffed Mushrooms. These were incredibly tasty, and that sausage is amazing.

We also ordered a side of fries with gravy, because I just don’t see enough of that kind of potato action.

My sweet husband was feeling adventurous and ordered the Pierogies. These little yummies were filled with potatoes and cheese, then accented with butter, onions, sour cream, and bacon bits.

My order was made easy, by the “When in Rome” rule. The Steel City Samich is a beast filled with turkey (you can opt for pastrami, ham, or roast beef as well), cole slaw, onions, tomatoes, and french fries.

It was a good sandwich. The only thing I would change? It needed a little sandwich glue, as the cole slaw was a little on the dry side. A smear of aioli would go a long way here.

I like the backstory here – these are family oriented folks with a long history of working hard. I am also a big fan of the friendly attitude and the home-cooked food. If you are looking for a cold one and some comfort food, this is the place for you.
