There is no question that the steak is outstanding. However, the decor and the rest of the menu need updating. While the restaurant is nostalgic for some, it's too expensive for the overall quality of the experience. It would also be nice if it were not cash only.

My wife always bristled when I told people about how wonderful Peter Luger Steakhouse was because she had never been there. Well that excuse is gone -- I took her there last night and now we both share a new memory of how wonderful it is! We live in Virginia and seldom get to NYC but had the opportunity this... More

Interior is not fancy. Staff is a bit curt but know what they are doing. If you want a great piece of meat this is your place. Located in an isolated area of Brooklyn. Cash or debit cards only. Menu requires steak for 1,2,3 or 4 and it is served "family style". I would go back but it is always... More

Peter Luger was highly recommended to us and rightfully so; I'll make it short. The good: - The steak was amazing, the plate for 2 was more than enough for us. The meat was done exquisitely, lots of fat. - The staff was excellent. The bad: - There were no side dishes with it, you have to order them separately.... More

Steak really doesn't get better than this. Moist, tender, succulent, hmmmm. My mouth is drooling just thinking about Peter Luger. Ugh! Count your coins; empty your piggy bank, but leave your credit cards at home. This is a cash only establishment. Three people, three drinks, and a tab well over $300 says it all. Only your wallet will be sorry.... More

Perhaps I am spoiled with the beef that is served in the Midwest. While I am a native New Yorker, I have lived in Minneapolis since 1987. I have always wanted to try this place but it is very difficult to get a reservation. Fortunately, my good friend has a a connection. On a recent visit to the city, two... More

Not particularly friendly, not beautiful, limited menu, but the best steak I have ever had!!! Is it the quality of the beef? Is it the aging? Is it how they cook it? I don't know but it adds up to fabulous.

Readers of my past reviews know that I've dined at many of the great steakhouses during my travels around the US and abroad. I'm also very picky about what warrants a five star review. This time around I'm giving Peter Luger's four stars. It was good but not the best I've ever had. The problem with a location that has... More

First off, no credit cards is a pain. The steaks are very good but nowhere near world class. The tomato slices with bacon however are some of the best you'll ever had. Skip the onion rings, creamed spinach and the desserts, non memorable.

Thank lmolnon
