Man, I surely hope it's still as good as it used to be before the old man (Bern himself) died. Lived in Tampa prior to moving further south down the FL West Coast. LOVED Bern's! Mrs QFan and I always went there for special occasions and splurges. We still recommend it to friends, but haven't heard any recent reports. Anybody been there lately? Was it holding up?

    twinwillow, it looks as though I may be spending a few weeks in Dallas this autumn. Can I come over for a steak?? I'll take you on a Roadfood mini-trip with Bushie!

      We live in the Catkills close to New Windsor but had never found Schlesinger's. Passed it last night on our way out to somewhere else, and ate there instead of our original destination. It was VERY good, I highly recommend it.

        Nobody mentioned Durante's Steak House in Phoenix AZ, Hands down the best steak in the west. Subdued lighting, red leather booths. All of the regulars go in through the back door to say "hi" to the chef. Another great Steak House is in Colorado Springs on the corner of Tejon St. and Biju St. I can't rember the name of the place as I only ate there once. All I can say is "MMMMMMM-MMMMMMMM'.

          Dale's in Florence Alabama is one of the best. That location is the only one that I know is still open. It is like taking a trip back in time to a 1950's steakhouse. The waiters wear serving jackets and really do wait on you hand and foot. One of the best steaks I have ever had.

            the best steak ive ever had is at vlados in melbourne austrailia. vlados is at the grill and cooks to your order grassfed no hormone meat that melts in your mouth. peter luger,berns, ruth criss and some of the others mentioned are first rate but vlados is in a league of their own

                I live near Tampa, and don't think Berns is close to being one of the best steak houses. Sorry, I think FLEMINGS is better then Berns.

                  Different strokes for different folks.....................in my opinion, Bern blows Flemings away.................Bern is a great dining experience. Flemings is an overpriced "chain" steak.

                    I finally remembered the name!!! It's called The Famous and it's located on Bijou St. and Tejon ST. in Colorado Springs CO.
                    Also McKenzie's Chop House located on S. Tejon and Vermillo St. Also in CSCO

                      A great steakhouse I haven't seen mentioned yet on this thread is Wolf Lodge Inn, just outside Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. It has also long been a favorite of the Sterns, appearing in many of their books. Besides the great steaks, I also really enjoyed the casual, rustic atmosphere. On my recent 10 days in the Northwest, this was my favorite restaurant of the trip.

                        We had the porterhouse at Bobby Vann's on Park Avenue in NYC last week. The steak was right up there with Peter Luger's, but the noise level was outrageous. I'll settle for a lesser steak in a more peaceful environment. And my credit card bill had an additonal $400 on it when the 4 of us left.

                          The Saltgrass Steakhouse close to where I live has the best steaks around. I'm in Fort Worth ,Texas. They also have the best maargarites around too.

                            trayguy, not to be insulting, but I find that fantastically difficult to believe. There are some world class steakhouses in your area - like Del Frisco, Three Forks, Lawry's, Foco de Chao, Morton's, Ruth's Chris, etc. etc. in Dallas, plus the Stockyards in Fort Worth. I have never been to a Saltgrass which comes anywhere close to any of the above (and I've eaten in at least 8 different Salt Grass Steakhouses.

                                Another terrific steakhouse I love that I didn't see mentioned is Maddox Ranch House in Perry, Utah. It is about an hour north of Salt Lake City. It sure isn't much to look at, but the food is outstanding! Warning.....they do get mobbed at meal time. The first time I ate there, they were offering desserts at 50% off if you got them to go, just to free up some tables.

                                      The BEST steak in Milwaukee is at a place called the 5 O Clock club on State street. It is a neighborhood that is not considered the best, but worth every experience we have had.You can only order one size of anything-filet is 1 lb.And how beautiful it is-done to perfection.....

                                        There used to be a great steakhouse in Atlanta (Southside, near the airport) called Pilgrin's. I'm not sure if it is still in operation as it's been a number of years since I've been. The steak was excellent.

                                          when i was a kid there was a place on northern blvd. in great neck (that's Long Island New Yawk) called the north shore steak house that my grandparents used to take us to that was really good. wonder if it't still there and if it's still good. this was before the days of the fancy steak house chains.

                                              Has anyone been to the Sirloin Saloon in Burlington Vermont lately, that place was fantastic when I was younger I wonder how it is now.

                                                I have been to Coerper's 5 O'clock Club in Milwaukee. It is very good - not on the same level as Luger's or Doe's Eats in Greenville, MS but very good in its own right.

                                                  The Cattle Baron in Babb, MT at one of the east entrances to Glacier National Park served the best steak I've ever had. They also have an adjoining breakfast joint called the Bunkhouse, which served the best steak & eggs I've ever had.

                                                    Hi Folks -

                                                    Let me offer up some good steak joints in the San Diego area -

                                                    Top of the line is Donovan's... PRICEY! But their Friday night's prime rib is KILLER. It has to be at least 24 oz. Delicious.
                                                    Their porterhouse is also very good!

                                                    Next on the list is Ruth Cris... again PRICEY.

                                                    Hunters is supposed to be very good and not as pricey.

                                                    Decent steak joints in the SD area - Stuart Anderson's Black Angus. Not a bad place without breaking the bank.

                                                    Godfathers, I think is the name of the place. Classic italian red leather booths. That's a little pricey... but good meat!

                                                    I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents!

                                                    Thanks,

                                                    Doug

                                                      For me, it's a tough tie between Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Chateau Gourmet in Crestline, CA, and Morton's Steakhouse in Palm Desert.

                                                      I love the intimate booths at Ruth's Chris, the top notch service, and the family memories I have of that place.

                                                      I really like the service and super upscale feel of Morton's in Palm Desert. The food is great, and, they show you the "raw" food before they cook it (a novelty).

                                                      I love the food, service, atmosphere, and tons of family memories I have of Chateau Gourmet in Crestline.

                                                      So, if I'm eating steak at any of those 3...I'm happy.

                                                        I'm surprised there hasn't been a mention of a Michael's so far. I went to the one in Key West a few years ago, and it was the best steak I've ever had. Not that I can eat that much red meat anymore, but I know they get their steaks from Allen Bros.

                                                          Thads in Newbedford, Massachusetts had the best prime rib, but closed because they wanted to retire.

                                                          Nephews in East Freetown, MA has good prime rib.

                                                            I usually don't eat steak out as, more times than not, they are never better and usually worse than I can grill on my own.

                                                            My family goes to Manhattan fairly often and I have thought several times about eating at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn. But since they don't accept credit cards and I don't normally carry the wad of cash necessary to pay for three or four people at those prices, so far, we have just passed.

                                                            I have eaten at most of the major national steak houses in many locations; Ruth's Chris, Palm etc. and at several good local ones, Taste of Texas, Brenner's, Hoffbrau and all are decent but nothing better than I can grill at home given a thick prime Porterhouse or NY Strip to work with.

                                                            However, one of the most memorable steak dinners I have had was several years ago in San Angelo, Tx at a place called the Twin Mountains, which is in a large building west of San Angelo where one half is a country and western honky tonk and the other half a restaurant. Their menu has a non traditional steak dish they call "Scraps" which is a heaping platter of just the medallions from the tender section of the sirloin swimming in their own au jus. I am unsure if it is still open or still serve the same menu. But it was DELICIOUS.

                                                            The spill over from the honky tonk next door just adds to the ambience.
