Looking for a reasonably priced, non-chain steak restaurant in LA or Pas.

  1. How about SMITTY'S GRILL in Pasadena?

    Or maybe for a little kitsch, THE DERBY in Arcadia?

    Some people really like MONTY'S, but I've never ever been a fan.

    1. I think Taylor's is very delicious and well priced.
      they have two locations- downtown(8th st.) and la canada (foothill blvd)
      atmosphere- dark clubby steakhouse vibe w/ booths and they make a good martini too.

      1. Smitty's is the bomb - On Lake and Green -Sit on the patio. There's also the Arroyo Chop House. Both restaurants owned by Smith Bros. of the Parkway Grill (Pasadena)KQ :)

          i second arroyo chophouse. the food and service are both fantastic.

              Arroyo Chophouse is good indeed, but may not qualify as "reasonably priced" ...

          1. as far as reasonable steakhouses go taylor's (l.a. or la canada) is a good bet. order the culotte cut for which they're famous and the molly salad. it's an old school place.

            i think smitty's is just as expensive as arroyo chophouse, not surprising as both restaurants are owned by Smith Bros.

            i had a wonderful, reasonably priced skirt steak at mike and anne's in south pas last week. it was buttery.

            1. We like the tenderloin at Damon's is Glendale.

              A fun Polynesian atmoshhere. Do a search for past comments.

                Thanks for such great suggestions. I think it'll be a toss-up between Taylor's and Damon's...
