Looking for steak place near West Chester

My niece will be graduating from college this spring and I'm going to her and family out to a steak place (which is what she wants) that's not too far--maybe a half hour--from West Chester University, though there's some flexibility there. Most of the family is coming down from New York, so travel a greater distance in that direction (from the university) would be best.

I don't want an Outback-style place; it should be closer to Peter Luger level.

The kicker that's throwing me is that it needs to be open for lunch. I don't know if I'll have to convince everyone that it must be a dinner if we're going to go somewhere nice, but I thought I'd at least try.

Any feedback about this place?
They're open for lunch, but I don't know if they quite fit the quality, and the lunchtime steak offerings are small.

  1. OK, another try:
    Radnor, PA

    Edit: not open for lunch. Drat; I keep forgetting to check for that!

    1. Brandywine Prime in Chadds Ford is the closest that I can think of. There's a Sullivan's on Rt 202 in DE. Both are within 30 minutes.

      Luger level? Neither are close, but both are better than Outback by a good bit. Of the two I'd take BP hands down.

        Thanks. I may have opened the field quite a bit by being able to shift it to dinner time (I found out that the timing works out much better).

          + 1 on Brandywine Prime...great old building, friendly service , good food, very good steaks. Depending upon time of the day 25-35 mins from WCU.

        1. Mile High Steakhouse in Glen Mills gets good reviews, too.

          1. There's also Ruth's Chris in King of Prussia -- maybe 20 minutes from WC.
