Peter Luger is hands down the best steak in New York.I have not had a better steak any where in the world as a matter of fact.Many places try to copy from them,but none can come close.Simply the best.

Forget all the people who say that it is over rated. Go for the Steak, love it for the onions and tomatoes and the bacon. A true steak eater will tell you that this is the best steak in New York City without a doubt. Forget the steak sauce, I love its juices!

I usually go with my fiancee, but it is always my choice. It isn't fancy(which makes me like it more), but it is no doubt the best steak in NYC. I love the fact that it is simple to order, when you decide you are going to Luger's you have already decided what you are going to eat! Some feel the service is a little short witht the customer's, but that is part of the old school charm. If you crack a joke with your server, he is likely to crack one better back at ya. The more you go, the more you appreciate what this establishment represents.....Oh yeah, and nobody makes a stronger drink at the bar, so be careful if you drove, ha,ha.

Keeping it simple

So you want to experience what a steak in New York is all about…well then go to Peter Lugers. Hands down, no questions asked, the best steaks in NY. With it’s simple formula; age the steaks till the mold gets nice and thick, then cook them to perfection, they can do no wrong. I was once told by a waiter that if I saw what that meat looked like hanging in the back, I wouldn’t be drooling over it as he placed it down on the table. There is no special décor, or snotty wait staff. Its classic food at it’s best. I’m not big on the creamed spinach, even though I am told it is out of this world. What I do love is a nice piece of steak with some golden and crisp fries along side. It’s a great place to be noisy and eat till your blue in the face. I think both may actually be encouraged at this place. Great for large groups because you can get steaks for 2, 3, 4 etc and they arrive sliced and ready to go at the table. A true NYC landmark.

Steak just melts in your mouth. Waiters, a species unto themselves with their wise-cracking witticisms. Worth the trip across the Williamsburg Bridge for a great steak dinner. Don't forget the tomato and onion salad,the creamed spinach, and the hash browns.

All must bow to the great purveyor of the best Porterhouse you will ever have in your life. No one can come close to this Valhalla of beef. Poor wine list, but it is the only game in town if you are a steak lover, and shame on you if you've never been!

THe food was delicious. The steak was medium rare with flowing juices. It tasted like butter. THe creamed spinach was incredible. I practically ate the whole bowl by myself. Tried the other Peter Luger in Great Neck. Less crowded and did not feel rush. Food was still amazing. Would go back but may go back to Great Neck instead. THe only reservations in Brooklyn are 5:45 or 10:00. Great Neck I got 9.

I am very particular about my meat consumption, as there is nothing better than a thick steak grilled to perfection - yet nice and rare in the middle!! As a native New Yorker, I have eaten in nearly every steakhouse throughout the 5 boroughs and beyond. No one compars to Lugers. Always imitated but never duplicated, Lugers sets the standard that all others must look up to.

I've been going to Luger's for 45 years or so and the steaks, hash browns and fries are always top of the heap. (creamed spinach doesn't do anything for me). In addition to high quality meat, perfectly prepared, its great virtue is consistency; I've never been disappointed in a meal at Luger's. Its signature "steak for one, two etc." turns out to be a money saver when you're with the kids or small eaters. Order for the amount of steak you're going to eat, rather than the number of people in the party. The legendary gruffness of the waiters has eluded me over the year; yet another urban legend methinks. I find good service with varying degrees of personality.
