Djon's Steak and Lobster House
522 Ocean Ave.
Melbourne Beach, Fl
Two of my friends and I had dinner recently at Djon's. This was our first occasion to dine here. We each ordered a petite filet (comes with whipped potatoes and hericot verts (green beans). We ordered a wedge salad, oysters with a spinach creme sauce and a grilled asparagus salad tfor starters.

This is a beautiful restaurant - definitely date night worthy. It has beautiful table linens and chandeliers, a great location and a nice bar and with a beautiful fire pit outside. One of my dining companions thought the restaurant was too "weddingish" in decor, but I liked the decor. It is apparent that a lot of thought was put into the restaurant's ambiance. They have indoor and outdoor seating.
I thought the service was very good and of adequate speed for the restaurant type. When I am having a dinner on the fancy side - I would rather linger a bit. One of my dining companions thought the service was slow, but she was visiting from Washington DC; so that may be why. Service does seem to be a bit slower in Brevard County to out-of-towners.
All of our appetizers, in my opinion, were fantastic. In fact, for me they were the highlight of the meal.
The filet with whipped potatoes, while acceptable, definitely gave off a wedding vibe in taste and presentation to me. This restaurant does advertise they host weddings. That didn't surprise me. The hericot verts were seasoned and cooked perfectly tender crisp. However, I was not a raving fan of the whipped potatoes. They weren't bad, I would have just preferred something a little heartier to accompany the steak like a garlic mashed; just a preference.
I had 2 martinis, a wedge salad and petite filet. My total for my meal with tip was in the $80 range.
