Anyone have any good steakhouse ideas? We've done Flemings, Sullivans, Mortons, Ruth's Chris etc..just looking for something different so we do not have to drive to the city! We are open to anything.
Thanks :)

    Bridget's is one of my favorites, great steaks, great atmosphere, great bar for pre diner drinks, great wine list. I had a ribeye there a while back that I still remember, perfectly cooked with a merlot butter. So good!

      I agree Bridget's does a really nice job with their steaks.

      Ok, well according to those who know steaks the best and relatively pricey steak houses with great "houses" are in Center City. The list is long as are the opinions as to which is best.

      But youi don't want to drive, or train, to the city. So would you consider a fall drive into the hinterland? The Black Angus Steakhouse in Stoudt's Brewery south on the turnpike in Adamstown at the Denver exit was considered very good and it is a busy interesting place. Also just into the city of Lancaster is the Stock Yard Inn. Great beef is a tradition! Dine in the very nice upscale bar or in any one of two interesting dinning rooms. Reasonable prices, great beef good service nice people with a nice fall drive. Did I recently see a Capitol Grill behind the King of Prussia Mall? They have had a good reputation at the Center City location, expensive.

        I had a great dry-aged strip at Chops on City Line recently. I was not impressed on my first visit when they originally opened, but if was very reasonable, and the price was a relative bargain (at lunch ..)

          There is no question that the best steak houses are the ones that have been mentioned, along with the Prime Rib, in center city.

          However, if you are within striking distance I strongly urge you to try Richies Bar and Grill at 323 W. County Line Road in Hatboro (215 675 9935.

          Don’t judge a book by its’cover; this is a simple bar with a small dining room in the back. The prime rib, king or queen cut are huge and really good, the dinner including salad, sides and dessert is around $25.00. Very strong!!

          The cocktails are not huge but they are not expensive either.

            I've always been a Sullivan's fan - think it is the best of the four you mentioned above.

              We used to really like Sullivan's. The last 2 times we went, I had to send my steak back. The last time, it went back twice! I was done after that. I order my steak rare. I want it rare, not medium.

                Wow that sounds really annoying crazy! I like my steak rare too and it must have been very disruptive.

                  It was, carbs. I have decided it is better to make steak at home and go out for foods I don't make on a regular basis.

              One other place not mentioned is Creeds. I think they have a great wine list, and I like their fish entrees as much as their meats. I prefer it over Sullivans (aka Outback plus) and its locally owned.

                1821 Steaks & Cocktails. Way out in Upper Black Eddy. World class steaks at middle class prices. Very limited menu. Stumbled upon it during a B&B weekend a couple weeks ago. Will go back for sure.
