Lindey's Rigging For Steaks?

Time to go fishing for a sirloin that looks like a small football and I hear the anglers tend to flock to a place called Lindey’s Prime Steak House located in Arden Hills. While you won’t need the famous Lindy Rig used for catching Wally’s, you will need the Lindey’s Rig which consists of a fork and knife!

This place isn’t the largest fishing hole for steak anglers, but if you find it, make sure to bring an empty “tackle box” which is a metaphor for an empty stomach if you didn’t catch that... Upon arrival to Lindey’s, one of their trusted “guides” will seat you at a table where a depth finder won’t be needed, just your eyes for reading the large menu/sign with just four selections and an appetite for some great steak. 

While you’re “trolling” and waiting for your first bite and enjoying an adult beverage, look at the old time photos of when the first anglers found this little gem and when you see your steak coming towards your table, prepare to set your fork! One of their other “specialized guides”(or servers if you haven’t caught on to my clever metaphors) will help filet your steak into smaller, more manageable cuts of beef while it sits in some delicious juices and continues to cook from a hot plate. 

Now, all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy your ”prized catch” that was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. Your meal is served family style and is always a heaping pile of delicious fried taters to accompany your steak, a tradition that started 50 years ago by Lindey himself. The best times to catch the Lindey’s steak beast starts at 5 p.m., but if you’re an angler that likes to get out a little earlier, check out their lunch specials starting at 11 a.m. and available until 3 p.m. 

Leave the leeches, worms, tackle and boat at home, well… unless you’re actually going to go out fishing before or after than go ahead and bring all that with you, but you won’t need it for Lindey’s Prime Steak House.
