Sam Seltzer's gift cards will be honored

Port Richey

Sam Seltzer's gift card could get you a meal

If you still have a Sam Seltzer's Steakhouse gift card collecting dust in your wallet, mark your calendar: The location at Gulf View Square mall will reopen Oct. 28 under a new name, Harold Seltzer's Steakhouse. Restaurant founder Harold Seltzer, who sold his interest in the chain six years ago, is relaunching two of the locations that closed earlier this year. He told the Times that he will offer one free prime rib dinner for each gift card presented (limit one card per table, per night). "It's not my debt," said Seltzer, who figures he could give away 10,000 meals at the Port Richey and St. Petersburg locations if the average card balance was $25. "But I am trying hard to make it right." The menu will feature moderately priced dishes and aged, USDA choice Angus beef.

  1. 'Road to Nowhere' is back: Next phase of Suncoast Parkway coming

    The Suncoast Parkway ends at U.S. 98 just south of Citrus County. For years residents have opposed extending the toll road, a project dubbed the "Suncoast 2" into Citrus County.
