Boyd's Steakhouse is classic Martinsburg restaurant. The old-school steakhouse has a very prohibition-style vibe. And, according to the restaurant's website, it's even the home of one of Al Capone's bars from his estate. How cool.
We were here for lunch, and while I'm sure they do more upscale business for dinner, it still had a moody, speakeasy style to it. Antique furniture that you can only imagine gangsters once sat in. We walked past the long bar and were seated at a booth made of wooden panels and overhead Tiffany lamps that cast a red light.
I was relieved to hear that we could, indeed, order steak at lunch. Because how could I come to a steakhouse and not partake in the traditional steak? I couldn't.
I ordered Momma Boyd's 8 oz. filet mignon (medium), which came with a choice of two sides; I got the macaroni and cheese (duh) and buttermilk mashed potatoes. This steak was very good. While it may have been cooked a touch too long, it was incredibly juicy, flavorful, and tender.
The mac and cheese was extra cheesy, and the mashed potatoes could have been a touch creamier. But overall, this was a top-notch meal. A cool atmosphere and one of the best steaks you'll find in West Virginia.
