I’m happy to be able to provide the first review for Lockport’s new ‘Steak n Stone.’ We were anxious to try the fare here, especially since Lockport, with its fast-food gauntlet along Transit Rd., has little to offer in the way of trendier eateries. The décor inside had elements that one might expect – a full bar running down one side with booths and tables along the other. Classy high backed booths and chairs were unfortunately paired next to a row of extremely fake looking bamboo with leaf shoots that were obviously glued on. Tacky and trying much too hard. Other furnishings were obtusely clashing, like the strange paintings of an idyllic log cabin in the woods that one might expect to find at a Bob Evans. The hostess and waitress were thoroughly friendly, and although it took a little longer than normal to get waited on, we understood that their grand opening evening would have some kinks. We also had to excuse three things that we asked for that never came -- a spoon, extra spicy sauce and some hot sauce for the soup. The restaurant was full however, which was good to see. My tuna sashimi roll was excellent, as was the tempura and shrimp rolls. A side salad had the traditional ginger dressing and was nice. The shrimp oodong also carried a nice flavor in the broth and the hearty noodles went down easy. My main dish was a “combo” option of Strip steak and salmon, offered as a “pick two” along with chicken and shrimp potentials. On the menu, the choices were offered under the heading of Tempura / Teriyaki. When I informed the girl that I would like the salmon tempura-style and the steak teriyaki, I was informed that it was “not possible.” When I politely pressed as to why, she told us that the “computer” cannot ring it in that way. Disappointing. The dish was not well prepared. I asked for the steak medium; it was presented medium-well and much closer to well, with only the hint of pink in one or two of the center slices. The salmon, which appeared to be two thin tail cuts as preferred to a single, thick cut from the center, was dry. Neither was seasoned with anything other than the overly-sweet teriyaki. As we were finishing our meal, the “live band” came in and set up. Advertised as such, it was hardly a band, and certainly not “live.” A couple boys came in with a mixing table, a pair of overhead, colored lights and a computer and started playing house techno as if they were in Rumours nightclub at Clifton Hill. Completely out of place and distracting. All told, we will be back, because the sashimi was very good and well prepared and plated. However, our return will be motivated more because of the lack of modish sit-down restaurants that are not frequented by primarily an older generation (i.e. Garlocks, Fieldstone, Shamus, etc.), not because we were blown away.
