Meat is what it's all about!

When we visit Brooklyn, this is the place to come. I'm sure in the past it had its 'mafia history', with meetings around the tables, etc. But, if you want some good meat, steaks, etc. this is the place to come. It is a Brooklyn institution that everyone should visit at least once in their life.

By far the best steak you will ever eat. Has maintained its consistency over the years. Even in the middle of winter, the fresh tomatoes are fantastic. Waiters have been their forever. Service is brisk. The main idea is to turn over the tables.

The steaks are good here but not the best that I have heard about. I always hear that you should try Peter Luger Steak House because they offer the best steaks in New York. However, after trying this restaurant, I feel that they offer good steaks but not the best. I have had better steaks in Manhattan and for less... More

Go for the steak, specifically the Porterhouse which is remarkably delicious. That said, know that the atmosphere is a bit stark (bright lights, dated décor), the service was nice but a bit brusque (clearly not a Danny Meyer operation) and the sides limited. Wine list is on the short side but reasonably priced for what they offer. Not sure why... More

Might be an exaggeration to say they just do one thing, as the menu offers more than just steak, but it really is all about the steak here. And the steak is always perfect. We also love the shrimp cocktail, creamed spinach, german potatoes, and apple strudel "mit shlag." It's a meal we always look forward to sharing with good... More

I came here for my birthday recently with high expectations because of all the hype surrounding this place and was highly disappointed. There's nothing wrong with the food, and we had a pleasant experience (great atmosphere, impeccable service), but it is completely average and underwhelming - so not worth the long trip to Brooklyn. I have definitely had better steaks... More

If you love steak, then look no further. The meat is fantastic. But at the same time, if you love side dishes, then you will be disappointed. The restaurant itself is very nice, but service is not of the quality you should be able to expect from a place like this.
