Steak in MSP
I really enjoyed Manny's last time I was there - But I understand where you are coming from.
An ditto Bob S w/Strip club. However I supposed by view of the food may (just may) have been clouded by the copious amounts of cocktails.
How about the Lexington? Another St Paul institution.......
Hello, I have been to most of the "Supposed" steak places, I think that Morton's was the best i have had. Expensive but very good. I have been to capital grill, Manny's, Ruth Chris, and Murry's.
Take it with a grain of salt because i think the Outback Filet is very good also.......

You'll see lots of Murray's/Manny's/Strip Club recommendations, but there are lots of other places as well.
Also, Rossi's (which is in a couple of posts) is closed.
I like Erte.
I'm going to out myself as a member of the loyal opposition. I enjoyed my drinks at The Strip Club but have to admit that my meal there suffered from overly high expectations. I thought that the food was fine, but not so good that I'd go rushing back.
