It's been open since 1993, so it must be doing somethihng right. Or at least it does something that enough people find right. But it's just basic diner food.... Read more

Scott's Review

This is a new concept from the folks at Shula's Steak House, the high end eatery that bears the name of the legendary Miami Dolphins coach. He's legendary for the number of wins he led his team to. That number is 347. so that explains two-thirds of the restaurant's name.

The Grill part is meant to set it apart from the upper crust steakhouse, although a few steaks are available on the menu here, as well.

But there are other items, too, including crab cakes (before the Dolphins Shula coached the Baltimore Colts, so he's particular about his crab cakes), seared ahi tuna, sandwiches and other fare. Honestly, the least of the things I sampled during my visit was the steak, which was a bit overcooked.

The atmosphere is an upscale sports bar, with requisite televisions and casual seating arrangements.

When Slate first opened, in 2015, I wasn’t much of a fan. It wasn’t that I couldn’t recommend the Restaurant Row newcomer, I just didn’t see any reason to. Either it’s found its focus or I’m getting softer, but I enjoyed my recent visit to Slate. It seems to be a smoother operation, and it has settled comfortably into the Restaurant Row region....

Notice the name says Luxury Lanes, not Luxury Dining. Come here for bowling fun and maybe have a bite. Dining should be done elsewhere (when you're not wearing rented shoes).... Read more

The menu is simple and straightforward but hits several appropriate notes. Steak frites, grilled chicken and crab cakes for more substantial entrees and burgers and sandwiches for something snackier. Fish and chips are worth having.... Read more
