The Travelin Man
The porterhouse is most assuredly available for lunch.
I have always had great success with the Great Neck location for lunch with no reservations. As a matter of fact, I have NEVER gone with a reservation and always been sat at a regular table – with no wait. The Brooklyn location, admittedly, gets a little busier.
While the Brooklyn location has been around for 100 or so years, the Great Neck location is no Johnny-come-lately, either – they have been serving since the early 60’s. From what I have read, in addition to the greater ease with which one can be seated, the service is less gruff. While I don’t have Brooklyn experiences to compare, my own dining experiences at Great Neck lead me to believe that there could be some truth to this. The waiters are still older…and still a little crusty, but I have had one or two who try to inject a little humor here and there.
So, if you don’t want to run the risk of the Brooklyn location, Great Neck might be worth a shot.
