Steaks in College Park

cantkick Apr 25, 2011 07:37 PM

Any suggestions for a good steak in the College Park area? Reasonably priced. (I know about Ruth's Chris and Morton's in Bethesda. Looking for something more moderate.) A short drive is ok, but want to stay out of DC traffic as much as possible.

    As a side note, for any question of the form "is there good X in College Park", and X is not "divey Afghan restaurant", the answer is no.

      I haven't been over there in a while, but wasn't there a steak house attached to the Holiday Inn at RT 1 and the Beltway? And isn't there an Outback at Rt 198 and Rt 95?

        Moose Creek Steakhouse is the name of the place attached to the Holiday Inn the food is a step above TGI Fridays nothing to write home about

          Moose Creek is ok, but I was looking for something more upscale.

          Ray's sounds pretty good. Any other similar suggestions?

            Rays is the best option
            You can try Blacks Bar & Kitchen in Bethesda or the Woodmoore Grill in Rockville

              That would be Woodmont Grille in Bethesda, directly across from Black's. Part of the Houston's chain.

        Ray's Ray's Ray's Ray's.

        Sit in the bistro area rather than the back room, order the hanger steak. Not only will you get a prime, aged steak, you'll get mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, and either a soup or salad (get the crab bisque), and the whole package is under $25.

        Less than a 15 minute drive, and no going in to DC.

          You have to request the bistro meal. It is not on the menu

          If you don't mind a chain place, there's an Outback Steakhouse right by PG Plaza. I would recommend taking the short drive to Silver Spring and going to Rays the Classics.
