George Martin Group
65 N. Park Avenue, Rockville Centre, NY 11570   1-516-678-7272

There are only a few more weekends of summer! George Martin’s Strip Steak in Great River wants you to take advantage of all the sunny days and warm nights that are left!

On Saturday, September 10th, join Strip Steak for the End of Summer Patio Party from 8:00-11:00pm. For $45 a person you can dance along to live music, kick back a few at the open bar and devour appetizers and a carving station. Reserve your spot in advance by calling Strip Steak.

Every Saturday night enjoy live music from 7:00-10:00 and ask about Strip Steak’s liquid nitrogen specialty cocktails and deserts. The liquid nitrogen freezes the cocktail ingredients, producing a unique, all natural frozen cocktail with no artificial components. Look for different flavors of liquid nitrogen ice cream offered on the Strip Steak dessert menu! Combining liquid nitrogen with one of Strip Steak’s famous desserts, such as their banana pie or brownie, and the cream mixture, you are left with incredibly smooth ice cream. Liquid nitrogen dessert has 40% less fat than the average dessert due to the all-natural ingredients used and the exclusion of egg yolk!

Bring a date in for Wine-Down-Wednesday’s when select bottles of wine are half-price or join us for dinner and cocktails served 7 nights a week.

George Martin’s Strip Steak is located at 60 River Road in Great River, Long Island near The Great South Bay. For reservations call 631-650-6777 or visit the website to reserve online: ONLINE RESERVATIONS
