we've visited on weekdays and typically find free parking around 7th or 8th street (yellow and green are free after 6pm but check meter signs for actual hours). if you park closer to the main downtown, the meters go until 8pm. i don't eat enough steaks to know the difference between wet or dry but i prefer ribeye over everything else. tender and flavorful is the way to my heart! another steak house option is STK in downtown.
