and it's the best I or anyone I know has ever had. Period. Don't expect anything else other than to eat the best steak you have ever had.
The best steakhouse in the country
By ShelleyCasey on 3/12/2003
Went to Peter Luger for the first time on a Monday in February and returned on Friday. The first bite of steak took us back to the 70's when meat was really meat. The creamed spinach was a perfect accompaniment. And our waiter accommodated our wish for half well-done and half rare!
Always a Moooing Experience

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.
Always the best.

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.

I went for the steak, but I go back for the creamed spinach. As good as the meat is (the best in the city), the sides somehow manage to hold there own. The tomotoes are mysteriously perfect at every time of year, the bacon is sinful, the shrimp are a big crowd pleaser, and strawberries are worth breaking the "I'm too full" barrier.
It"s All About The Food

It's all been said before... if you love steak, this is heaven. Some people may not know about the bacon appetizer - it's so over-the-top it's a must! Sides get mixed reviews from the pundits, but I love them, the hashed browns and the creamed spinach, that is. Service is always bashed and it can be gruff, but the past few times I've been there the waiters have been lovely gentlemen who clearly know their trade. Don't go there too hungry because you'll almost certainly wait at the bar from 20-30 minutes, but do go.
The BEST steak in the WORLD!!!!

You cannot eat a Better steak that has been AGED and cooked to PERFECTION!

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.
Best steak in town....nuff said!

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!

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.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
