Best Memphis Steakhouses

There are a lot of folks who swear that their backyard grill is the only place in town to get a good steak. For those of us who are less culinarily inclined, there are a number of really great places to get a steak in Memphis. While there are many restaurants in town that serve a good steak, this list features only steakhouses--that is, restaurants that specialize in steak. Of course, not every steakhouse in town made the list--only the ones that, in my opinion, are a cut above the typical casual steakhouse chain. Do you have a favorite steakhouse that didn't make my list? Tell me about it here.

    In local polls, Folk's Folly is frequently voted the winner for best steak in town. It is a somewhat upscale restaurant (think business casual in terms of attire) so you'll spend a bit more than you would at a causal dining establishment. The food is very high quality, though, so you may find that it's worth it to spend the extra money.

    Another chain restaurant, Fleming's is well-known for tender, flavorful steaks and an impressive wine list. Again, be prepared to spend a little more for a high-quality meal from this restaurant. Attire is business casual or dressier.

    This little gem of a restaurant is located in Bartlett where it's been serving up steaks since 1976. The atmosphere is casual--in fact, you may feel like you're dining in somebody's home instead of in a restaurant. Drinks are served in Mason jars and steaks are reasonably priced.

    Texas de Brazil is the place to go when you are hungry. This Brazilian steakhouse serves all-you-can eat beef, pork, chicken, and lamb and they offer an unlimited salad/sides bar. You pay one set price for your entire meal (currently around $50 per person for dinner) but drinks and desserts are extra.

    This is another somewhat upscale place, in spite of the fact that it's a chain restaurant. Chain or not, though, Ruth's Chris serves up one of the best steaks in town. Suggested attire is business casual or dressier and reservations are suggested.

    This regional steakhouse allows you to choose your own steak and even it grill it yourself, if you want. You can leave the grilling and/or the steak selection up to the professionals, though, and know that you are going to get a good meal.
