Longhorn Steakhouse in Merritt Island

Amex sent me about 8 Restaurant Gift Cards worth $25 each. I accumulated so much points and for me, restaurant gift cards is the best option to maximize the worth of my points. I ordered different Restaurant GC and that includes Longhorn Steakhouse. We used it in Merritt Island so; after shopping, we went to this address:

770 E Merritt Island Causeway
Merritt Island
(321) 456-5559

When we went inside, it was not crowded and there was no host/hostess and we waited for at least 3 to 4 minutes but, when we were ready to leave (disappointed), one waitress came to us and assisted us. She was nice. We ordered and the food came just about the right time. It was not a busy day in the restaurant but, the ambiance was not at all positive. Maybe we were disappointed from the beginning. I ordered Rancher's Sirloin, a juicy grilled sirloin which has hickory-smoked bacon and sunny side up egg on top and asparagus on the side. I enjoyed my food but, hubby was not.

My husband ordered the Renegade Top Sirloin which he describes as tough as shoe leather. This is his plate and as you can see, not appealing at all. I gave him half of my steak.

Yes we were not happy on this visit. We will be back though and give them another chance if they are worthy for recommendation.

Longhorn at Merritt Island

Last December, after a tiring holiday shopping at the mall in Merritt Island, we decided to have lunch at Longhorn. The restaurant is just across the street. At first, we really didn't know if it was open or not because there was a yellow sign all over the premises. We found our way to the front door and inside was few people. There was no host at the front door. We waited for 3 or 4 minutes and some employees looked at us but, were busy to even acknowledge. As we head out, the server greet us, apologized and asked if we want a table. We were reluctant but, since we were hungry, we did follow the server anyway.

When we were inside, the waiting took few more minutes before they could serve the drinks. We ordered right away. The food was served on time and it was alright. Considering we were famished, we could have enjoyed the food more but, it was just an okay steak. We didn't finish the food and we asked for the bill and we left. We think they have a problem regarding customer service and the food is not great at all. We will try Longhorn in another location so;  we can tell the difference regarding the customer service and food quality.

Last Christmas, hubby and I received few restaurant giftcards from friends. There are about 8 gift cards in my wallet right now. Lately, we enjoyed baking and cooking at home so; I guess, we will not be using the giftcards soon. How about you? Did Santa gave you the present that you love most? I was in the nice list of Santa because I got my DSLR camera and the lens that I wanted. I gave an AMEX GC to my hubby because I don't want to buy his request. It's a long story hehehe.

Anyway, Happy New Year to all of you and may all of us will have a prosperous life this year.
