Phoenix and Scottsdale Steakhouses

Find a Thick, Juicy Steak at a Greater Phoenix Steakhouse

Sometimes you just need some meat. If you find yourself craving a filet mignon, a thick and juicy porterhouse or a prime rib, these Phoenix area steakhouses can satisfy that urge. Of course, you can find a steak at just about any fine restaurant in town, but these are known primarily as steakhouses.

For each steakhouse listed below I have indicated whether it is upscale or whether you can bring the family. Bringing the family doesn't necessarily mean that it will be cheap, but chances are that the prices and environment will be not quite as upscale as the others.

    Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak is located inside the Fairmont Scottsdale in North Scottsdale. The restaurant can be accessed from the outside of the hotel directly, where you walk through an impressive tunnel of the acclaimed wine collection to a subdued dining room, designed with indigenous materials of the Southwest. Tables are placed spaciously; the dining room is partitioned to give each section an intimate feel. The outdoor patio has booth seating in a garden environment. A visit to Bourbon Steak is appropriate for a business dinner or special occasion meal. Although it did not appear that a dress code was enforced, most would be comfortable in resort casual attire.

    Dining at Bourbon Steak is not for those weak in the wallet. To be honest, the menu here includes some of...MORE the most expensive entrees in town.

    Offering classic American fare with some culinary surprises, this Scottsdale steakhouse's menu includes prime, natural cuts of beef including Kobe beef, seafood dishes, inspired side dishes and an extensive wine list. Among the various award garnered by the restaurant and its Chef is the AAA 4-Diamond Award and a place on Wine Spectator's Best Wine Lists
