Fleming's Steakhouse offers prime-grade beef with mouthwatering sides like creamed spinach and jalapeño-sparked scalloped potatoes.

10 Days of Valentine's Day Dinners at Fleming's

While a handful of seafood, pork and chicken entrees dot the menu at Fleming's Steakhouse, it’s nearly impossible to pass up the steaks: lusty prime-grade beef, seared at 1,600 degrees and served on burn-your-fingers-hot plates. Equally irresistible are the indulgent sides, such as creamed spinach and jalapeño-sparked scalloped potatoes. Without exception, Fleming’s does wine right: Whether you want to splurge on a high-end bottle or go for something easier on the wallet, it’s nice to know that all wines are always served in peak condition at optimal temperatures.

Fleming's will have special Valentine's Day dinners Feb. 9-18, with two different entree offerings, including New Zealand barbecue salmon, plus desserts and starters. Be sure to put in your reservations to ensure an enjoyable evening. Click here to find more details or make a reservation.
