Prime rib, smoked salmon, rib eye steak and Saint Louis style ribs. If your mouth isn’t watering right now, I’m guessing you are a vegetarian. Dalton’s is a steak house that is esteemed for its high-quality steaks and salmon. I may have jumped up and down when I found out that I was reviewing Dalton’s. Ok, let’s be honest. I did.

For appetizers, we ordered the coconut shrimp and fried pickles. To be honest, I don’t like shrimp. I decided to give it a try though. The coconut shrimp has a light crispy breading that had toasted coconut in it. The coconut and shrimp flavors melded beautifully with the sweet pepper cot sauce (apricot preserves mixed with red pepper flakes). It was one of my favorite items of the evening. This is shrimp that even people who don’t like shrimp will adore. It is that good.

When I saw fried pickles on the menu, I just had to try them. I wasn’t disappointed. I was expecting pickle chips that were fried, but these were juicy dill pickle spears. The beer batter set off the pickle flavor and it was a great combination. Plus, the magical thing was that the crispy breading did not get soggy from the pickle juice. It came with some cool ranch.

The entrees came and took my breath away. Each one was delicious in its own unique way. I got the prime rib, which was a hearty piece of meat served with au jus and fresh horseradish. The meat was tender and just melted in my mouth and paired well with the seasoned au jus. I had the mashed sweet potatoes (think dessert disguised as a side dish) which had brown sugar and cinnamon. The dark, warm flavors of the mashed sweet potatoes paired nicely with the rich prime rib. I was quite happy with my selection.

The salmon was perfectly smoked and very flavorful. It came on a bed of wild rice pilaf. The side was sweet potato fries with creamy fry sauce. The sweet potato fries were nicely crisped on the outside and were to die for with the fry sauce. The Fish and Chips were perfectly cooked with a thin, crispy crust of that divine beer batter. I want everything I eat from now on to be dipped in that batter and fried. It was delicious. The fries were light and crispy. The cole slaw fresh and delicious with bits of bacon.

r

The surprise favorite for me was the Chicken Marsala. Looking at the menu, it didn’t sound like anything too impressive. However, after I took a bite, all I wanted to do was just sit and dip the bread in the sauce and call it good. The chicken was very tender and topped with sautéed mushrooms. The mashed potatoes were a combination of russet and red potatoes and oh so creamy. When you put the sauce on them, wow. It was just creamy paradise. The sauce is unreal. Marsala sauce with added cream and bacon. Yes, bacon. Mmmmm. I could have put the sauce on anything. I normally just take one bite of someone else’s meal, but I had to keep eating it. In total, I probably took ten bites of it. It was that good.

r

At this point, we were pretty much full, but after seeing the dessert menu I knew I couldn’t leave without a sampling. The Lemon Lush and Coconut Cream Pie were downright addictive. The Lemon Lush had a crust made out of crushed nuts and graham crackers. Then there was a rich, creamy layer topped with lemon topping. Wow. It was tart and delicious. It was especially refreshing on a hot summer day. The coconut cream pie had a sweet graham cracker crust with the filling, which was creamy deliciousness with toasted coconut right in the filling. Then it was topped with more toasted coconut and whipped cream. Mmmm. Yummy.

We were treated like royalty while we were there. I really believe that their motto is true: “Come a customer, leave a friend.” I would highly recommend stopping by Dalton’s for some made-from-scratch deliciousness. Dalton’s Steakhouse is located at 20 S. 100 West in Payson. Their lunch hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m. Their dinner hours are Monday through Thursday, 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays, 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. They are closed Sundays.
