Minnesotans are no different from those in the Midwest regarding their diet, which relies heavily on beef! Minnesota is particularly fortunate in steak: there are several world-class steakhouses here, including Ruth's Chris and Capitol Grille. Local establishments, however, can compete just as well with national names. Our favorites are listed below.

1. 801 Chophouse, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Waiting in line is not a problem at 801 Chophouse. One dinner at their seven locations across the nation will prove why they have huge popularity. 801 Chophouse is the place to go if you want excellent service, a warm atmosphere, and delicious USDA prime steaks. Our first recommendation is to start with 24 oz. Crab cakes from their Maryland seafood establishment. The best part of Delmonico is that its bone-in. They have a selection of small-batch bourbons and whiskies that you should ask for. 

Waitresses with seasoned service, steaks, and martinis. There's something old-fashioned about Murray's. During the days of dressing up to dine out, Murray's opened. A lot of people were interested in it. Silver Butterknife Steak remains the restaurant's signature dish. It's impossible to deny Murray's importance when it comes to beef. A hefty but delicious double strip sirloin steak broiled in a special oven designed for the job. A master magician carves the mesmerizing dessert tableside when it's ready for service. Though the house's specialties can take a while to prepare, you'll find plenty of garlic toast available as well as a variety of appetizers, especially the walleye cheeks.

2. Murray's, Minneapolis, Minnesota

For more than 60 years, Murray's has served up some of Minnesota's best steaks. Silver butter knife steak, a 28 oz steak expertly grilled, is their most famous slab of meat. You can conveniently have the sirloin strips carved tableside. As an aside, don't forget to request a wine pairing and order the classic french onion soup. In addition to all that, they go above and beyond what's on the table with their elegant and sophisticated atmosphere.

3. Gianni's Steakhouse, Wayzata, Minnesota

Few places in the area can compete with Gianni's Steakhouse's fantastic steaks and chops. There's nothing stuffy about this place, and the steaks are USDA certified, aged, and center-cut. Start with their lobster bisque before moving on to one of their excellent steak options, such as the dry-aged N.Y. strip or zabuton. It would be best not to miss out on their award-winning wine list, and classic bananas foster for dessert.

This steakhouse is famous for its cozy atmosphere, known for its cajun flare, cozy setting, and charcoal-grilled steaks. If you want to experience everything the restaurant has to offer, then start with an order of their crab cakes made with premium lump crab meat and their house cajun bearnaise. Then, move on to the N.Y. strip steak.

It's impossible to beat Farmington Steak House for casual neighborhood steakhouses.
