Better steakhouse...

J&G or Bourbon? Thanks.

  1. J and G is not that great cool vibe and nice view but that is what you are paying for- Bourbon gets decent reviews on the forum but i have never been there to compare the two

    Based on several underwhelming visits to J and G i would recommend taking a chance someplace other than there

    1. Bourbon Steak, hands down.

      However, I think I prefer BLT over either of them.

          Never been to J & G but I had a disappointing experience at Bourbon Steak....under seasoned steak and indifferent service during a birthday celebration. It seems as if my experience is the minority on the board but I did want to give my 2 cents.

            While I have been to neither, good friends, who are more "steakhouse oriented," than I am, had experiences at both, similar to yours. Their reviews of BLT were only slightly better.

            Though an avowed carnivore, I seem to prefer a chef-driven restaurant, that might also serve steaks, to the steakhouse experience. Guess that I am a guest at too many around the country, so get my fill. I can only recall having made one reservation at a steakhouse in the last three years, and that was only because we were at a Ritz-Carlton in CA, and it was their "signature restaurant." So, I am the last person to ask for steakhouse recs., but am only passing on the comments of those, who know their steakhouses, and frequent them Coast to Coast.


      1. Bourbon steak is great... nice happy hour too.

        1. Bourbon Steak is tops no contest ...been there many times and always great
