I loved, Spark's in NYC. Have never been to Peter Luger. Always wanted to, though. I'm sure, from what I know, it would probably be rated as my "number one".
My current favorite steakhouse is, "Twinwillow's" in Dallas.

I just saw your update on the 'Charlie's' group in Central Jersey. Thanks for giving me the rest of the story. You are right the Steaks were OK, in an era when there was a big step between the Ponderrosa type place and the Upper-end Special Steak place. The big-steak-chains like Outback and the Roadhouses have pretty much taken over the market share of places like 'Charlies".

I haven't been for a couple of years, but I've always liked The Winchester Room in North Versailes Pa (near Pittsburgh). While the steaks may not be on a par with places like the Angus Barn, or The Prime Rib, they are very high quality and (relatively) reasonably priced. Not far off the Irwin exit (Rt 30) of the Pa Turnpike.

Plus, it bills itself as "The Area's Official Stealhouse", though they don't say what the area is.

I'm sure I'm terribly gauche when it comes to steak, but the best I've ever had was at Taste of Texas (Houston). I've never been heavily into steak, though, and I appreciate the bacon wrap and garlic and such that I've had there. Every other steak I've had has been classified as "fine" in my book, but theirs is "whoa."

You know, it's funny, but I've always imagined it was a chain. Apparently, there's only one location.

If you go, you need to try the bacon as an appetizer, as well as their tomato and onion and their onion rolls. I cannot rave enough about the deliciousness of practically everything on that menu. For your viewing pleasure:

When in Naples,Fla. and feeling particularly carnivorous go to Andres on the "north trail"[Rte 41 N or Tamiami Trail]. He does things the Peter Lugar way. I think one of the Embers in Des Moines closed.

Wow! I have been to Charleys Steakhouse on International Drive in Orlando, Florida, on numerous occasions, the best steaks I have ever had. They cook the steaks on a open pit with 3 types of wood oak , citrus and mesquite, great flavor. They have 12 oz. Filet and a 18 oz. bone in Filet, 50oz porterhouse, and a Kobe style bone in ribeye, make your mouth water. They also have a 2.5 inch thick bone in N.Y. Strip, very flavorful. Wine selections are plentiful from all regions of the world to accomadate ones palate. Server friendly staff in a very nice atmosphere, not too far from Disney and Universal, so if you love a great steak Charleys Steakhouse on International Drive is the place to dine.

Flames Steakhouse in Briarcliff Manor, New York
as good as any of the big name steakhouses in NYC, including Peter Luger and I've been to all of them as a life long NYC resident. I recently moved up to Westchester County (north of NYC) and this place saves me the schlep down to the city for prime steak. If your in the area try it and don't worry the prices are just as high as NYC so you'll feel just a poor after the meal.

Last Friday night I finally got to eat at the original Doe's Eat Place in Greenville Mississippi. I split a two and a half-pound porterhouse with a fellow roadfooder, and this steak was, without a doubt, the most wonderful slab of meat I've ever tasted. The flavor was simply incredible, and the char-crust was perfection. The porterhouse was sitting in a pool of its' own delicious beef juices, which were just the thing for dipping Doe's superior hand-cut french fries in. For years I've wondered if Doe's steaks could possibly live up to their lofty reputation - I'm happy to say that they do.

 I second Bob's comment about Doe's Eat Place in Greenville, MS. The beef was outstanding.

  Then I will add a step up from there to the Doe's in Paducah, KY. It is not common to have the offspring of the original owner of a place make improvements on the original, but that's what has happened in the 'Doe's Family'. The Paducah store is run by the Greenville Store owners son. The Beef is every bit as good, plus they have a Lunch menu, much more room and a location in a historic district in Paducah, and serve the 'total dinner' for one price, as opposed to the 'Ala Carte' arrangement where the salad/soup and other items are billed seperately.

  Yes put me down for endorsing  "Doe's Eat Place" TWICE, with Paducah heading the List !
 
  Here is our dinner at the Paducah,KY Doe's-
   Grilled Shrimp with veggies for Janet and a large Ribeye Steak with French Fried Potato for me (with an appetizer order of Grilled Shrimp to share). Also some Garlic Toast for the two of us , as well !

 
BTW- My ribeye, with Potato, Bread and Coke to drink was $32. The Appetizer Shrimp was $10 and change. Janet's Shrimp dinner with Veggies, and Bread and coffee was $9.95 (off the lunch menu!)
  They did have a 10 oz NY Strip with the sides on the Lunch Menu for $12 also!
 
Added 2/19-
Here is a shot of TTM's Porterhouse with one of my Shrimp as a garnish. It too, was a piece of Art as well as a great cut of Beef!

I added one of TTM's photos to the Doe's comment above. I have been to some of the best Beef Houses in the country ('cept peter Lugars!) and so far Doe's in Paducah and also in Greenville are head and shoulders above them all! (Mortons,Ruth/Chris,Lawry's don't come close!! IMHO)

Lewnes in Annapolis, MD

Its not huge.  You might see people in there in Tux's and in the next booth people in shorts and T-shirts.  It started as a lunch counter that used to use only 4-H raised beef but in the early 90s converted to the best pace for steak (and great crab cakes) that I have ever been.  There's a Ruth's Chris a block away and I would always choose Lewnes over Ruth's Chris.

My dad grew up with Nick and Buzz BeLar whoc owned the Prime Rib in Baltimore (and DC and Philly) which until Lewnes was my favorite steak.  But dad told me he thought Lewnes was better but made me promise not to tell Buzz.

You won't be disappointed.

Metropolitan, Seattle.

I set the bar high, and they exceeded my expectations.


I would agree with this assessment of the Met. They now have both American Kobe and true imported Japanese Kobe beef (at astronomical prices, of course.) Last January, I had the "long bone" American Kobe bone-in rib-eye (about 30 ounces) which was a truly outstanding steak. It was pricey, to be sure, but worth it for a special occasion.

In Seattle, El Gaucho runs neck and neck with the Met, in my opinion, as the ultimate carnivores' destination.

At two ends of the spectrum, but two fine steakhouses...The Oak Steakhouse in Charleston, SC & The Beefmaster Inn in Wilson, NC.

Now...Peter Lugar's.  If the picture below is the best this "icon" can produce, they don't deserve to be on anyone's list.  For the money you drop there you at least deserve a clean plate.  Absolutely shameful presentation.  I wouldn't expect a plate that dirty at the local greasy spoon.  I'm utterly shocked.

  The post provides no backup information or basis for the poster's comments.  Those comments run  in direct opposition to everything we have read or seen regarding Peter Lugars Steak House. I labeled it a "troll post" because, without any background or followup information, it sure looks like all he wanted to to do was create an immediate reaction from other members, with no intention of providing any intelligent supporting data for his statement.
  I don't care if he is a 'Newbie' or has 139 posts... Trolling up comments is not an acceptable behavior.

  Thanks for adding to you comment. With the edit, I can say it doesn't seem like a troll post now.  Do you have any personal experience with Peter Lugers? I Don't. So all my thoughts are the result of the media coverage and reviews by others. That's why I haven't raved about  (or demeaned) the place. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so a negative comment is acceptable, if backed by experience.

not a high priced place but reasonable with good cuts, the top sirloin is as tender as the filet but larger & less expensive with just the right seasonings
I wish there was a place like that down here that didn't charge $25 for a 16oz sirloin.

On NYCTV they showcased some of the newer steakhouses in the city,BLT Prime,Craftsteak,Dylans Prime,LandMarc,Quality Meats,StagHorn,StripHouse. The 64oz cut at Quality Meats was quite impressive. They showed the different cuts of prime beef that each restaurant serve and the signature way they age and prepare the cuts.

Borgata Casino A.C.- Old Homestead Steakhouse (NY). The steak was SO GOOD I was having an out of body experience!
Arturo's Bally's Casino- The BEST Filet I have ever had. PERIOD. I had some of the best around in NY.
Peter Luger's- Is really really GOOD but, in my opinion, lil over rated, lil bit, lil bit. Don't get me wrong. Next to Cattlemen & Old Homestead, Peter Luger is probally pound for pound the heavy weight champ.
Wow. I could really go for a good steak right about now.

For anyone in the Louisville, KY metro kentuckiana area, I would recommend Roadhouse USA in Scottsburg, IN (just off I-65). They have a wonderful selection of steaks, other entrees (seafood, chicken,dinner salads, prime rib, sandwiches, soups and stews) and sides at a reasonable price. I personaly recommend the Grand Cut of Fliet of Tenderloin of Beef, medium rare. Very flavorful without seasonings overpowering the natural goodness of the beef, and extremely tender. Prices include a salad, two sides and all the freshly baked from scratch rolls you can eat.
The owner is almost always on site and usually working in the kitchen or out checking on the customers. Servers are very friendly and go above and beyond to make sure your dining experience is great. There is a full (separate) bar with several big screen TVs tuned to sports broadcasts. There is also a separate smoking dining room.
Even during busy days such as Valentine's Day the wait is never excessive..we have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a table and are usually seated immediately. They are open 10am-10pm Tuesday thru Sunday, closed on Monday.

The Great Steakhouses?

In my opinion, the greatest steakhouse on the planet is my own kitchen/patio. 

My wife and I can turn out a better USDA Prime, dry-aged porterhouse than ANY restaurant in the country.  In fact, with my Brenham, Texas, rancher relative's grass-fed Longhorn beef, and my expertise on the cooking end --- steak can NOT be purchased in a restaurant that even comes close.

BUT, if one feels the need to visit a restaurant, then Peter Luger's  in New Yawk City does an acceptable job.  We have been there numerous times --- and the steak is always good, and the attitudes of the employees are ALWAYS less than pleasing to us educated Southern types.

There you have it:  two choices.  Make your own because a good steak is like a good woman  -- properly raised, properly aged, and properly prepared, there is NOTHING better on Planet Earth.

Luger's stands above all of the other NYC steakhouses that I've visited - old favorites such as The Palm, Sparks, Smith & Wollensky, and new contenders such as BLT Steak, Bobby Vans, Capital Grille and Michael Jordan's. All of the above deliver a great steak, but for me, Luger's combines the best taste with the right ambiance. A steakhouse should never be too fussy in my opinion, and everything else that is served should complement the steak and strive for the same degree of greatness. Luger's does it for me.

I used to take my furture bride to the Chuck's Steakhouse on the Post Road in Orange in 1964 and 1965. The steaks were terrific, the service was great, and it was a really terrific date place. It was the first place I ever saw a salad bar. I tried the salad bar once. That is, I went up to it, saw what it was, and never went near it, or any other such thing again.

 My personal favorites include The Famous in downtown Colorado Springs CO.
Right down the block is another great place called The Chophouse.

 Both places use U.S.D.A Prime, dry aged beef. Neither of these places are chain restaurants.
 
  At the Chophouse, they will cut the steak to your specs.
Whole strip loins, rib eye, and filets are prepped but not cut until the order is placed.
 
  I think that The Famous has better side dishes more suited to a "Steak House." Creamed spinach, and pomme frits are great as is the green beans almondine.

 Both of these places are worth a stop if you are in the area.
