Good steak in Mercer County?

Haven't had a decent one in a long time. Any suggestions?

  1. A few suggestions:
    Witherspoon Grill in Princeton
    Bistro Soleil in Hightstown
    Ruth's Chris (but I'm not a fan)

    1. KC Prime on Quakerbridge Road

      1. There’s Pete Lorenzo’s in Trenton. Although I don’t think they’re as good as they were years ago, they may still be your best bet. I’m anxious to try Ruth’s Chris in Forrestal Village but I’ve heard mixed reviews about the chain in general. If all goes well, there’ll be a new steakhouse called the Porter House in Hamilton Twp. at the intersection of Rt. 156 and Rt. 130 that is scheduled to open in the spring of 2009. See .

          I've never heard of P. Lorenzo's. Thanks!

        2. I second KC Prime on Quakerbridge Road. They have the absolute best prime rib that I've ever had. Not the usual huge slab of pink meat with the fatty ring around it. They roast at a very low temp for 10 hours, hold it at 150 degrees, and then grill to desired doneness. It is delicious and tender. Great drinks, appetizers, desserts and you'll get out of there for half of what you'd pay at Ruth's Chris. It wouldn't pass it to go to Ruth's Chris.

            The Ferry House has always had good steaks in my opinion. -mJ

              Thanks for describing the cooking process...mmmm...that sounds awesome. Like buttah! I will try it. I find that NY sirloins are not as tender or flavorful.
