Lakes Grille

Lakes Grille in Clarkston has plenty of affordable options when it comes to delicious pasta, steak, and seafood dishes. If you’re looking for a slightly different take on the surf and turf dish, we would suggest the Surf and Turf Mac and Cheese. The dish features steak and lobster bits over elbow pasta tossed in a cheese blend and then baked to a golden brown. It might not be the traditional surf and turf dish, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less delicious.

D’Amato’s

If you and your significant other are both looking for a great surf and turf dinner, check out D’Amato’s on Tuesday nights. The Royal Oak Italian restaurant features a three-course surf and turf dinner for two for $50. It’s a great deal, and you can make the night complete by listening to live jazz from Jimmy Smith Trio starting at 8 p.m.

Looking for a little spice in your surf and turf dish? Look no further than Mi Pueblo Mexican Restaurant in Detroit. They offer a few combination plates that will give your surf and turf dish a little kick, like the Mar y Tierra dish which features grilled steak, sautéed marinated shrimps, refried beans, rice, pico de gallo and guacamole. At $13.95, it’s a lot of food for a nice price while also spicing up your surf and turf needs.
