Those mussels sound good; I'm more used to the preparation style of steaming them in white wine & I wonder how the flavor differs.
Or I'd have the Irish stout beef stew, eating the potatoes in the stew, but handing off the soda bread, except maybe the merest crumb to see if it was okay or dried out as this bread can sometimes be.
Or I'd get the smaller sirloin cut, cut it in half & bring half home, and on the side, I'd have a sweet potato (without the special butter; they're generally moist enough not to require a topping) and probably the smokey apple cabbage, after ascertaining exactly why it's smokey. Shame nothing green like beans or broccoli there.
If I weren't terribly hungry, with a dinner-size appetite, I'd get the Grilled Portobello burger with sauteed onions & mushrooms & avocado slices. I'd substitute a side salad for fries.
I would get the shrimp and a side of baked sweet potato, hold the Whiskey butter(mainly cause it sounds icky anyways...)
Or the 14oz steak, with 1/2 wrapped up before dinner even started, veggies without butter, with the same sweet potato if I had the calories for it.
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”
I'd get the spinach/steak salad, give half the steak away to dinner companions (only save 2-3 oz for one serving), dressing and gorgonzola on the side, ask them to be stingy w/ craisins and generous w/ the spinach. But I don't like gorgonzola much so a few drops of that on my spinach would be all I'd need -- steak has enough fat to flavor your salad. And a water, of course.
I'm a lightweight, so I'd just have half a pale ale to go with it.
... It is never too late to be what you might have been.
I'd probably get the 6oz bacon wrapped filet, and maybe a double portion of those veggies without butter -- and eat the whole thing. Either that or eat 1/2 the steak and get the sweet potato w/ no butter as well. One or the other.

If it was me, I would have Peel and Eat Shrimp and a dinner salad. Mussles would be a good alternative (but I am not a shellfish fan). Alternatively, the Roasted Chicken Cobb Salad looks OK, but I would have to get dressing on the side and no cheese.
