5. Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse – Birmingham

It doesn’t get more high end than the swanky Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse in Birmingham. Known for being one of the classiest steak joints in Michigan, you really can’t go wrong with a dinner here or at any of their other locations. We recommend the NY strip or go all-in on the wagyu cut.

6. Bowdie’s Chophouse – Lansing

Bowdie’s Chophouse is one of the best in the biz when it comes to top-quality steaks and top-notch dining. From the smoked duck ravioli starter to the endless cocktail list, there’s more going on here than steak, too. We recommend starting with the smoked duck ravioli or house wedge before moving on to their cowboy ribeye. Don’t forget a whiskey or two.

7. The Grill House – Allegan

Set in a restored 1836 inn, The Grill House is as charming as its steak is delicious. One of their biggest highlights it the grill-your-own steaks. This way you can enjoy their excellent cuts of meat to exact doneness you prefer. We recommend the famous lumberjack steak made with choice top butt Midwestern raised sirloin.
