Need advice-Cocoa Beach Eats

malcy Oct 1, 2006 05:06 PM

I am hoping some of the foodies here can help choose a restaurant for me. I am searching for a great steakhouse in cocoa beach florida.
I will be taking a trip there for my boyfriend's birthday. He LOVES a great steak. I want to get him the best. I have seen adverts for Durangos and Gregory's, we have been to Ruth Chris (which he loved but I want to try something new). Please help I want to make this a great trip for him.

    Haven't been to Gregory's but would agree about Durgango's, but I think it's a cut above & good deal less expensive than Outback's.

    For a special occassion, you might try Dijon's Chop House in Melbourne Beach, just down the road from CB. Excellent food & a great atmosphere.

      The newest steakhouse in the area is Ulysses Prime Steakhouse in Cocoa Village. Run by the same owner and located next door to Cafe Margaux, I have heard nothing but great things about this spot, though I have not had an oppurtunity to try it myself yet. It is the only steakhouse in the area that would rival a Ruth's Chris or Morton's; Durango's and Gregory's are much more similar to an Outback and the like. Cocoa Village is at most a 15 minute drive from Cocoa Beach, located right off of State Road 520.

        Didn't eat at Ulysses, but did walk by the other day. Looks great. You mentioned Ruth & Morgan's...they are certainly in their league when it comes to prices.
