Steak/Prime Rib Westchester?

Meeting some friends this Sat. near Tuckahoe. Want to go to a place with decent steak and/or prime rib, baked potatoes. Doesn't have to be the tristate's best, just good and preferable moderate priced. Willing to drive a ways, either east, west or north maybe as far as White Plains, or south to Bronx border. Prefer reservations or a place that would be no long wait if walking in around 6pm (5 people). Thanks.

    Go to Tara's in Yonkers. Since you will be in Tuckahoe, go over to midland and miles square road to Tara's. Not a lot of "flair," but the best prime rib in Westchester for the price. Guss and Teresa are great folks, and you should have a nice night. I've had the prime rib in Morton's and all around the country. Tara's is better. And half the price, with nicer folks to share a meal.

      Sounds good, will try to check out on next visit. Is it more of a pub or a restaurant, that is more of an eating place or more for drinking?
      I assume it may be Irish, do they serve any Irish specialties and/or have a good Irish Coffee?
      Anyone know what would be the best pub or restaurant in the general area for a properly made good Irish Coffee?

      Not that they're moderately priced, but Willett House in Port Chester is comparable to a Morton's. It's about 15-20 minutes from Tuckahoe. High quality meats served a la carte. It's been awhile since I've been, but I never had a bad meal there.

      Actually, I'd choose that over Morton's, since you can go to a Morton's in many cities, and they're virutally identical.

        Thank you for the info about Willett House. I might have to skip it this time around since someone else is paying and I don't want to suggest anything in the Mortons/Willett House price range. But we will try it on our own in the future.

        What quality level? On Central Ave just north of Tuckahoe RD you have both you have Outback and Charlie Browns. I think the prime rib at Charlie Browns is pretty good. The double cut is around $17 with sides and salad bar.

        For high level go to Mortons Steak House in White Plains (in the mall that has Whole Foods) on Bloomingdale rd. You have to make reservations for the prime rib which they only serve on saturdays. Supposed to be very, very good. Been meaning to go there for several weeks.
