Best Steak houses on long island?

The best steakhouse i've been to so far on long island has been
Brooks & Porter in Merrick, NY

lugers in Great Neck was pretty nasty for the reasons that the waitstaff sucked, the place was filthy (a waiter dropped a broccoli on the floor and looked around then kicked it under a chair that it fell near). (My steak came out wrong 2x (asked for rare - med rare, first time came out completely cold and purple, 2nd time came out well done, then they got it right)

mortons isn't anything special

i still want to try burton and doyles as I heard that the steaks there are amazing. anyone hear anything about them?

  1. 1. Peter Luger's. Since you hated it you might not care about my other picks but...
    2. Bryant and Cooper is a close second. I eat there when I go with a larger group because they have many more steak selections, not just porterhouse.
    3. Burton and Doyle and Morton's. I see no differnce between the two and they are not nearly as good as #1 and #2 My father in law loves B&D and dragged me there a few weeks ago, it merely served to reinforce my opinion that it is not in the same league as Luger's.

      i've never been to great neck peter lugers, but brooklyn has been the best steak i have ever had. I would say my next 2 favs are bryant and cooper and rothmans

          Brooks & Porter in Merrick is very good. So is Prime in Huntington.

      2. I can definately say the Ribeye I get at Mac's Steakhouse in Huntington rivals the Ribeye I have gotten at Mortons and the like...

        1. Haven't been to Tellers in a year or so, but I thought they were right up there with the rest. The Palm is another favorite of ours. Unfortunately all we can afford right now is Cliffs.
