The seasons aren’t the only things changing around here. Fans of the Steakhouse at Moses Pointe will notice the restaurant has reopened after their winter hiatus- but this time with a new name, and a slightly new vibe. The Pointe has always been a favorite of mine, even before I managed to trick their head chef into falling in love with me. (LOL) They are a little out of the way if you don’t live in Mae Valley, but it is so worth the trip. I mean, the view from their deck, and parts of the golf course, is incredible. There’s nothing like being able to look out at the lake with a nice glass of wine as the sun sets in the summer. And while there are a couple of other places in Moses Lake where you can do just that, the Pointe is still at the top of my list.
If you’ve never visited the Pointe, or if you haven’t been in a while, now is definitely the time to change that. In addition to their name change (they’re now known as Mulligans at the Pointe), they’ve also unveiled a brand new lineup of menu items. I had the chance to try a few of their new dishes and they did not disappoint.
Their new menu is primarily gourmet burgers, sausages and sandwiches- although they still have classic staples like Cod and Chips and even Clam Chowder on the weekends. They also create fun specials each week. I recommend following them on social media to see what they’re cooking up each day. (Warning: their posts will make you hungry. Like, all the dang time.)
I took Cotey’s mom and nephew with me to check out the new menu last weekend. I went for the Seattle burger which had caramelized onions and cream cheese- SO GOOD! I’m not sure why cream cheese and onions are what represent Seattle but I am not complaining. I’ve always been a fan of Seattle dogs (hot dogs with a ton of cream cheese and onions in case that wasn’t already obvious) so I was super happy to see the burger version make the menu.
I was also surprised by their new Black Bean Chipotle burger- a nice 1/4 pound gluten free and vegan option. The patty is so full of flavor that it makes you forget you’re not actually eating meat. It’s definitely a must try even for the biggest of meat lovers.
Cotey’s mom went for the French Dip, which was full of delicious top sirloin, onions and provolone cheese. Sometimes restaurants make the mistake of making their French Dips with too thick chunks of meat and to me, that just ruins it. The Pointe does it right with thin slices of sirloin though. Jayden went with the chicken strips (don’t judge him, he’s seven.) Although, the chicken strips looked pretty good to me too. You get quite a bit of bang for your buck with the chicken strips.
Mulligans also has a nice line up of premium sausages. The Tipsy Elk is amazing- I mean, it’s infused with Madeira wine which makes it a winner in my eyes. They also have a wild boar brat on the menu which is on my list of things to try next time I go there. And don’t worry about the toppings as they set out a variety of specialty mustards and other condiments at both ends of the restaurant. I am a little bummed I got so full because I also had my eyes on their Caddyshack Ribs (on the appetizer menu)- juicy pork riblets slathered with house made BBQ sauce. Oh well, that just gives me an excuse to go back! Who’s coming with me?
