Looking for a classy, yet relaxed place to dine tonight? Well, may I recommend one of Sioux City's finest. Eldon's.

"I think it's a great atmosphere where people can gather, have high quality food. The happy hour is great on Friday's," Anthony Osborn a customer said.

"It has a professional atmosphere and at the same time it's casual and place to bring anyone," Jeana Goosmann, a customer said.

"They have the best fish in town," Amy MacFarlane, a customer explained.

"I ordered the beef tenderloin and the loaded mashed potatoes of course," Sheri Keimeg, a customer said.

"Some of the best food you will get at an affordable price in Sioux City," Kari Kallen, a customer added.

Known for its metropolitan feel, Eldon's offers a dining experience that you will never forget. Whether you are stopping in for a night cap, planning a holiday or business party, or just planning to try one of their "fine dining" dishes off the menu, you will truly have a 5 star experience.

"We've got great food. We source local ingredients. When we can, we visit the local farmers market and whenever we can buy anything local and bring it here , we do," Jennifer Letch, with Eldon's said.

Executive Chef Keith Wittrock has been with Eldon's since opening day and has got my appetite going in full throttle.

"My style is kind of the French/Asian thing, however, I still love doing the American classics," Keith Wittrock, Eldon's Executive Chef said.

"We are known for steaks, being we are a steakhouse, however, we are making American classic food today. The country fried steak," Wittrock said.

"Country fried steak. Yum in the tum," Riley O'Connor, KTIV's Morning Meteorologist said.

This is a dish that will stick to your ribs for sure. Ingredients are simple. Start with spicy sausage, add some fresh rosemary, sage, black pepper, garlic, butter and cream and a classic french sauce called béchamel. Then we sauté it all up.

"I love garlic, Love garlic," O'Connor explained.

Let some aggression out and pound a fresh cut sirloin until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Fry it up and side with gourmet mashed potatoes and voila!

"Phenomenal. Oh, that is so good. Definitely sticking to my ribs," O'Connor added.

Now that I got my fill on country fried steak, it's time to cook up some yellowtail tuna sesame crusted to perfection. Start with butter, after all it is a french dish. Sauté that with ginger, onions, an asian chili sauce and sear the tuna and fire up some scallions.

That is very good. You can taste the butter and ginger in there. The sauce is amazing and the fish is amazing," O'Connor said.

So give yourself a break from cooking tonight, instead head to Eldon's and treat yourself!
