The steaks are only as good as the cook (YOU).

They bring you the cut you ordered and you cook it yourself over a huge grill whilst they bring you beverages, when your steak is done, a plate with Baked potato and greens appears;)
I used to get stuck in Appleton once a month or more (for a weekend) and outta all the other steak houses I have been to in 16+ yrs of trucking, 48 states, this is the best.

My ratings are based on having fun as well as a great meal!

Hmmm...so you go to a restaurant and they charge you for a meal but then they make you cook it yourself? Thats some kind of racket there.....the owners are either the smartest people in America or folks in Wisconsin just aint too bright. :lol:

When I moved to WA, the quality of meat took a nosedive. You just cannot buy good meat here.

The best in WA or OR that I have had was El Gaucho.


I will vouge for there homemade Tomato soup, I never had a steak there, yet (the Oasis that is).

And your right, you can't buy good beef in Washington, thats why we raise our own, two calfs a yr (not for sale, lmao), cheers...John

Actually there are "Cook your own" restaurants all over the lower 48, that was just a favorite;)

The best steak I have had lately is from Catelman's Runner up being from Hungry Hunter, Outback is pretty good. I have heard of a place called Ruth Chris (sp) that is incredible, have yet to try it. The prime rib from Catelman's was incredible, had it rare of course, melt in your mouth, We had a service meeting there a few weeks back. I got there early had a few SNPA's and was feeling quite good, and said a little more than I should of to our area supervisor. :shock:

Any of you SF Bay Area brewers been to Vic Stewart's in Walnut Creek? I've never been nor have I heard any first-hand reviews but I always see their name in the "Best Steakhouses in the US" list in the in-flight airline magazines. That list doesn't ever seem to change. Ever. Cheers...

Oliver House in Toledo. Best steak I have ever had.

And down stairs in Maumee Bay Brewing and they also serve upstairs. The beer is ave. but much better than MBC.

Ruths Chris on the other had is one of the worst steaks I have ever had. Never again. Great service bad food :cry:

I asked my neighbor who eats at Ruth Chris probably twice a month, he Vic Stewart's is like Sizzler compared to Ruth Cris.

The Chris is pretty good, I have eaten at the ones in Seattle, Hong Kong and Taipei. It is a chain, but they serve a very good meal.

I eat on business, so price isn't a big deal, but it is overpriced since you have to order sides and salads separate.

If you get a chance, I would eat there.

Chicago steak house

Postby jonny4947 » Wed Dec 07, 2005 10:19 pm

Expensive, but consistently rated in the top 5 or 10 in the country... Chicago chop house...the BEST in the midwest . I was also wondering if anyone has gotten a chance to try REAL japanese steaks (not as soft as our beef but far more marbling)? I've heard its awesome, but its outrageously expensive, even in Japan.

Hmm, best steak I ever had was in Oklahoma city... there's a steakhouse at the stockyards (or at least there was about 15 years ago when I was hauling beef tallow and such for a living. So glad I don't do that anymore :)

I rarely (har har) eat steak anymore though... that much red meat sits in my stomach for a few weeks and makes me feel like I just ate a bowling ball.
