The Best Steakhouse - What Makes a Great Steakhouse

Just about every individual in the country loves a great steak, especially one from the best steakhouse around. Nonetheless, lots of beef fans have extremely different feelings of what constitutes the best steakhouse. Let's break down many of the the different aspects of steak houses, and help you find the best choice for your preference.

To start, quality is constantly an important factor. A great steak house would need to have the best quality meat, sourced from the best cattle farms. While we all want the right quality beef, perceived high quality automatically commands a high price. The steakhouse which you would expect to stock the best beef might not, and you could be probably paying for the name of the restaurant and presentation. A small, relatively unknown steakhouse could actually be the best in terms of quality steak.

The second most important factor is the way it's prepared. No matter how good a steak is, if it isn't cooked the way you love it, you won't enjoy it. The best steakhouse will always cook it just to your desire, and the upper class steakhouses will usually take the steak back and make it again if it wasn't to your specifications, while smaller or more mainstream non-specialist steakhouses wouldn't give such a guarantee. If you are the kind of customer who only prefers rare steaks, for example, being served a medium steak is unacceptable. Any restaurant that could lay any claim to being the best steakhouse will have to prepare their steaks according to their customer's liking.

Following preparations, presentation is very important for the any steakhouse. Presentation is everything from the outside of the chophouse, to the material of the cloth and napkins, to the plates and cutlery used to eat. A steak house which claims to be the best cannot serve drinks to its visitors in inexpensive, thin glasses. Presentation is very important to some diners, but not to others, so consider how important you find linen napkins.

Variety is imperative to a steakhouse laying claim to being the best steakhouse in a city. Strip, sirloin, and fillet must all be available, at the very minimum. Once those bases have been covered, side items should include all tastes, as well as beverage availability, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Desserts and starters, two parts of a meal that are often overlooked, also should offer a wide variety and cater to several tastes and preferences. A broad variety offers something to everyone, and the best steakhouse will need to have achieved this.

Finally, there is service. Nobody goes to what they think is the best steakhouse and be met with inferior service. Clients rely on servers and kitchen staff to deliver what they ordered and with awesome service. Many diners do not have the patience to wait for long periods for their food or drinks, especially if it's a common or uncomplicated order. A great steakhouse will have wait staff that is efficient and alert to the customer's needs.

A great way to find really good steak places in your city is to take your search online. There are quite a few restaurant review sites today where you can input the name of you particular city, state or region and it will serve up results based on your location. Not only can you see where the restaurant is in proximity to you, you can read actual customer reviews and experiences from the restaurants in question. I use these sites religiously when seeking out new dining establishments in my home town of Memphis.

Ultimately, when looking for the best steakhouse, think about what you really want out of a dining experience and judge according to that, rather than just looking for what you perceive the best to be. Most of all have a great time looking for it!

A Prime Steakhouse Can Also Be Considered Fine Dining

A restaurant is considered a "fine dining" establishment if it serves absolutely delicious meals, has impeccable service and offers an ambiance that enhances the dining experience. Certainly prime steakhouses that offer steaks from the top 2% of prime beef found in the US could qualify initially.

However, you would need to take a peek at the rest of the menu. It doesn't have to offer everything under the sun but it does need to be varied in order to please different palates. You know for a fact that the restaurant serves prime filets, T-bones and rib eyes, but it must also have selections from the ocean like lobster tail and salmon. For the bird lovers there must be one or two fowl selections like game hen or quail. Plus there must be at least one rare dish like lamb.

It is rare to see a fine dining restaurant serve beer in a bottle to the table. While some patrons prefer beer, most of the time it is served in a chilled glass. The wine selection does not have to offer hundreds of choices, but what is offered must be above reproach. There should be choices that go with red meat, white meat and fish dishes, or both. For the special occasion there would be several choices of champagne.

The staff at a fine dining restaurant is trained well beyond how the wait staff would be trained at a casual restaurant. They are not there to merely take an order and bring it to your table. They should be able to answer any question you may have about anything on the menu without having to check notes. It would not be unusual for the host or hostess hold a chair for a lady. A different server would remove crumbs from the table between servings. In short, the service enhances the dining experience. All servers are attentive without being over-bearing.

If you are going to a prime steakhouse for a fine dining evening, you should not expect marble floors and Tiffany chandeliers. The decor will be reminiscent of the food that is being prepared. No, there will not be old license plates covering the wall or a mechanical bull in the middle of the floor, but the decor will be hand-chosen to make the clientele feel comfortable and at ease. A fine dining restaurant could require coat and tie for the gents, but more than likely the prime steakhouse will want the patrons to enjoy their meals in casual attire as well.

You will know that the prime steakhouse you have chosen is a fine dining choice when you notice the attention that is being paid to all the little details. Your server may actually call you by name if you had a reservation. You will feel important. You will notice small things at the table like fresh napkins if you should leave for a moment or the freshness of the centerpiece or candle.

Fine dining can be modestly priced or expensive. When you finish your meal you will think it was worth every penny no matter how much you paid.

Myron's Prime was just named winner of San Antonio Best Steakhouse for 2012. Whether it's the bone-in ribeye, the fresh Maine lobster or a fine bottle of wine that you crave, we'll make sure that your dining experience with us will be one to remember. Myron's Prime Steakhouse has two locations. locally-owned, San Antonio steakhouses.
