Peter Luger's or Striphouse?

Trying to decide between two - any help is appreciated. Thanks.

  1. 2 of my favorites. I've been to Luger's many times and just recently tried Striphouse for the first time. What kind of atmosphere are you looking for? Striphouse is amazing and I'd probably choose that over Luger on a usual day, but if I'm feeling a bit more casual and want to pay just a tad less, I'd probably go to Luger's.

        horrible choice. The Strip House is incredible... food, service and ambiance. Lugers... greasy steaks, very limited choices, nasty wait staff and so bright inside you need shades. Hands down folks... save the L train fair and go to the best steak in the US

        1. re: foodonlygood

          Striphouse hands down.
          The only dish I like at lugers is the bacon.

        2. Absolutely Luger's. If you do not want to travel to Bklyn then I would definitely go to Spark's over Strip House (although I do like Strip House).

          1. My last two visits to Lugers have been decidedly average. I've always had good steaks at Striphouse, but they have a tendency to keep you waiting 45-60 minutes past your reservation, so I haven't been in the last few years (I prefer BLT Prime).

            But at the end of the day, it depends what you are looking for (assuming you are only considering the two). Porterhouse go to Lugers. Any other cut of steak (or other protein) go to Striphouse. For appetizers - Bacon, lugers; Lobster Bisque, Striphouse. Credit Card - Striphouse, Cash - Lugers.
