    Ten stopped serving prime steaks a couple years back - but now that Ruth's Chris is in town they've begun serving prime steaks again - Ruth's is by far a much better product and experience- ten is tired and has had it's day... the view alone is worth the visit.

      I read recently that Ruth's Chris Steakhouse will be opening in the new GTEC building downtown.

      Capital Grille is the old standby, but can be very expensive and not consistent with regards to the food, e.g. steaks overcooked. The service is usually good and their steak cuts/options are excellent.

      The XO menu is a bit more updated.

          I was just going to post XO.... their roast chicken is awesome. I'm guessing their steak is good too.

          Not a traditional steakhouse, but Chez Pascal does a really nice job with meat.

            Yes, their Hanger Steak is excellent, but the steak options there are limited.

            No, Ten is a different restaurant. Providence Prime is on Federal Hill (Atwells Ave), next door to and same owners as Providence Oyster Bar.

              I guess Capital Grille or Providence Prime. Those are the two acknowledged biggies.

                Thanks. We were just at Capital Grille. It was ok. Is Providence Prime the same as Ten Prime?

                Have not been in years, but Capital Grille claims to be the premiere steak house in Providence.
