Meh. I'm an hour and a half south of Montreal.
They got it all up there.
 
2013-08-23 02:53:28 PM
The first place listed is Cattleman's.  I call BS on the whole thing.

Went there, got the presidential T-Bone and was HORRIFIED that they could screw up a good steak like that.

Lamb Fries were good though.

Peter Luger's is one of only 2 in the US - Bern is the other -  that dry age their beef for a minimum of five weeks (I think) according to Jeffrey Steingarten.

I haven't heard of Cut at #1 but it looks like an airport hotel conference centre.

I can still almost tast the porterhouse at Peter Luger's.  That was well worth the money.

List fails without Bones in Atlanta.
 
2013-08-23 02:56:08 PM
We've got a Cattleman's nearby, their food is amazing.
 
2013-08-23 02:56:17 PM
I've been to Peter Luger twice.  Maybe it is because I'm South American and know what real steak tastes like, but I was seriously disappointed both times.
 
2013-08-23 02:56:26 PM
Seemed like the focus was on trendy restaurants.   Since I don't see Mc Clintocks from Shell Beach CA, I call the whole thing bull sh^t.
 
2013-08-23 02:57:06 PM
Going to #3 tonight.

Although it wasnt my call. My view is that there are a number of just as good steakhouses in manhattan. Why cross the river if you don't have to?

But anyway, mmmmmm steak.
 
2013-08-23 02:57:06 PM
Oh well we're happy to say there's plenty of good cow elsewhere - there's something to be said for being close to your sources - just nothing beats New York. Keens is the best meal a carni or omnivore shall ever enjoy.

Probably just me but I am now completely burned out on steakhouses.   Once in a big while I enjoy a really good filet mignon.    A co-worker higher up at the company loves to do the big steakhouse pig-out thing thing whenever we are at a conference or trade show.    Even when it's on the company I just don't have the appetite for the over the top huge meals anymore.   I'd rather tuck into a little no-frills Thai restaurant with excellent food and service.
 
2013-08-23 02:59:48 PM
List fails _with_ St. Elmo's in Indy.  Yes it's survived 100+ years.  So what?  Steaks are only OK and the "world famous" shrimp cocktail is basically straight horseradish sauce with a hint of red color.

I'm not even sure Mr. B's is the best steak in Milwaukee and I _live_ in Milwaukee, but it should definitely be higher on the list than anything in Indy.  The (higher end) corporate places are almost always the best places to get food down there.
 
2013-08-23 02:59:50 PM
If you go twice, try the famous mutton chop, a 26-ounce lamb saddle that's nearly 2 inches thick and dates back to the restaurant's earliest days.

can't be too popular if it's been sitting around over 100 years.  aged meat is one thing, but that is a bit extreme
 
2013-08-23 03:00:03 PM
Came looking for Bern's on the list, left satisfied.
 
2013-08-23 03:00:14 PM
Any of Jeff Ruby's places in southwest Ohio will not disappoint you.

/even if he is a douchebag
 
2013-08-23 03:00:20 PM
I have a beef with this list.
 
2013-08-23 03:00:28 PM
Whoever came up with this sham of a list has obviously never had the bread or a blooming onion at an Outback.
 
2013-08-23 03:01:06 PM
I refuse to believe that the best steakhouse in the U.S. is in Beverly-farking-Hills.
 
2013-08-23 03:01:08 PM
Jesus, it's cooking a friggin' steak.  Provided they know how to cook it properly, it's not rocket science.  I think it's more about where the meat comes from.

Meh.  Single best filet I ever tasted, bar none, was at the Sage Room Steakhouse in South Tahoe.  Second best was at the Old Homestead (Atlantic City).  Yes, they're both in casinos, no that isn't a coincidence.

I'm still willing to field-test, however.

Bobbie Flay's has nice stuff if you like a little pep, local restaurant Sweetwater (from the American Grills line) has great value for money in steak.
 
2013-08-23 03:02:39 PM
If I were a billionaire, I still would set foot in that gussied up shopping mall food court they call a steakhouse at #1.
 
2013-08-23 03:02:53 PM

KIA: Second best was at the Old Homestead (Atlantic City)


Went to the one in Vegas.  It was incredible.

And for that price, it should have been.
 
2013-08-23 03:03:03 PM
Went to #18 a couple weeks ago and was unimpressed.

CarneVino, #16, however was amazing. Best meal I ever had, great service and not much more expensive.
 
2013-08-23 03:03:07 PM
List wins for giving 4 different viewing options.
 
2013-08-23 03:03:18 PM
Dickie Brennan's in NOLA is a huge disappointment as a steakhouse.

This list reminds of those weird brochures you get in hotels that claim to have a "top ten in US" steakhouse nearby.

Here you go...I found a link.  Don't eat at any of these steakhouses.  They must pay to be included on this list.  I've eaten at 3 of them and none were anywhere near as good as Peter Luger's.

2013-08-23 03:03:47 PM
I highly recommend CarneVino in Vegas. It's pricey, but with every penny. I got the bone-in filet. Best I've ever had and the service was fantastic. I usually try out different restaurants every time I go to Vegas, but I might go there again on my next Vegas vacation.
 
2013-08-23 03:03:54 PM
Love these top whatever lists that are complete bs. Any list of steakhouses that don't include Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse in Chicago or Smith and Wollensky's in NYC are highly suspect. And that the number 1 is some fancy ass place in Beverly Hills where no doubt the presentation is far more important than the food content ... yeah sure!
 
2013-08-23 03:04:01 PM
Hard to argue against Brennans in NOLA.  But Pappas in Dallas?  Not even in the same conversation with these Dallas heroes:

Chamberlains.
Bob's Steak and Chop House
Lawrys
Ruths Chris
Dakotas

Peter Luger's is without a doubt the best steakhouse in the free world.  Musso and Frank's is the second.

Both have been around for decades.

Cut is another Wolfgang Puck creation.  It will go the way of all of his restaurants.  Trendy and sparse will never replace simple, homey and excellent product.

Joe Peanut: I've been to Peter Luger twice.  Maybe it is because I'm South American and know what real steak tastes like, but I was seriously disappointed both times.


Maybe it was something else...because they have one of the finest steaks anywhere in the world.

I predict rational responses in this thread, with absolutely no:

'List fails without (their hometown steak place)'

"People are stupid to pay that kind of money, cook it your damn self"

"Meat eating people are evil"

*gets popcorn*
 
2013-08-23 03:05:55 PM
I can go to Texas De Brazil and have all-I-can-eat for about $45-$60 per person. Any cut you want. Great salad bar, too. Awesome food. Or I can go to the butcher shop down the road, and get a 2" thick porterhouse (well over a pound) for about $15, and grill it in my back yard. I usually choose the second option...
 
2013-08-23 03:06:03 PM
Gorats?  Really?  I mean... the place is good and I've eaten there multiple times, but I honestly think 'Canglia's Venice Inn' (to name another Omaha restaurant) is better.  I also think the 'Steak House' (yeah, original name) in Lincoln is better.
 
2013-08-23 03:06:23 PM
The best dingy, greasy, hole-in-the-wall steakhouse ever is the Hoffbrau in Austin.
 
2013-08-23 03:06:45 PM
I go to #6 (Killen's in Pearland) on a regular basis.  They are good because they start with good meat (grass fed and dry aged) and keep the seasoning simple.
 
2013-08-23 03:07:07 PM
They always forget the Sizzler in Flagstaff.

Lawry's is prime rib.  Ruth Chris is a chain, as are all that you listed.
 
2013-08-23 03:07:17 PM
Heh, I just ate at the house of prime rib in San Francisco two days ago. Fan-farking-tastic as always.
 
2013-08-23 03:07:19 PM
Bern's is the best I have ever been to.
Keene's is awesome too.

I pay the chef from the Beverly Hills place that was #1 to come to my house and use my charcoal grill to make me a portabella mushroom.

No, Ruth's Chris was better, their steak was average at best, service was nice though without being obnoxious.
 
2013-08-23 03:08:58 PM
Hmmm, I ate at a place called Gallagher's in Vegas at New York, New York. It's one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Do ALL of these places actually do it better? Cause it was worth killing for.

Can't argue with any of those, but to this day I STILL think "Ruths Chris" is the dumbest farking name I have ever heard for any establishment.  Sounds like you have two kids on the football team with the same name...."who's Chris scored? Ruth's Chris. Cindy's Chris didn't play last night"

But yeah, they have some great steak there.

I never went to Gorat's or Caniglia's.  I did go to Cascio's, Anthony's, and Omaha Prime.  Cacio's had a damn good steak as did Omaha Prime, but you're paying for quality at Omaha Prime.

SAME THING AS THIS GUY^^^^^^

St. Elmo's literally made my wife barf.

Ruth's Chris in Toronto was great, as was Gibson's in Chicago.  Oddly enough, I haven't spent much money on steak here in MKE.  Too cheap when I'm paying, I guess.

Sweetwater has the best prime rib I've ever eaten. Also, I believe it's the lemon butter chicken? To die for.

Also, these lists are all the same, high priced big city restaurants. I'll take a Longhorn or self cooked ribeye any day :)

Chicago sucks at pizza worse, I bought frozen home run inn pizza which is touted as Chicago's best selling frozen pizza. I have had tostinos microwave pizza that tasted better.

I use gas, but I can cook a goddamn good steak, and thanks to Costco, I can actually afford to do it.
