7 of the Best Steakhouses in Minnesota

Are you hankering for a juicy steak dinner with a few glasses of red wine and good company? There are more than a few steakhouses in The Gopher State with you in mind. From cosy Cajun-style eateries to swanky date night joints, here are the best steakhouses in Minnesota. 

7 of the Best Steakhouses in Minnesota

1. 801 Chophouse – Minneapolis

Just one evening at 801 Chophouse will make it easy to see why they have such huge popularity and seven locations across the nation. From their excellent service and warm atmosphere to their extensive wine list and wonderful selection of the finest, aged, USDA prime steaks, 801 Chophouse is a no-brainer. We recommend beginning with their Maryland jumbo crab cakes and then the 24 oz. bone-in Delmonico. Be sure to ask for a pairing from their selection of small-batch bourbons and scotches.

2. Murray’s – Minneapolis

Since 1946, Murray’s has been serving up some of the most delicious and delectable steaks in Minnesota. Their most famous slab of meat is the silver butter knife steak which consists of an expertly grilled 28 oz. strip sirloin carved tableside for your convenience. Be sure to ask for a wine pairing and opt for their classic french onion soup as a side. As if all that weren’t enough, they go beyond what’s at the table with their elegant and sophisticated atmosphere that brings everything full circle. 

3. The Best Steak House – St. Paul

The Best Steak House in St. Paul is exactly what it sounds like. This simple family-owned and operated eatery is famous for its laid back atmosphere and simple, yet delicious steak picks among other American fares. Their t-bone steaks are a bit of a local legend and pull in guests from all across the state. We recommend the classic 14 oz t-bone with a buttery baked potato or the t-bone with jumbo shrimp.

4. Gianni’s Steakhouse – Wayzata

When it comes to delicious steaks and chops, Gianni’s Steakhouse is a cut above the rest. (pun intended!) Here you’ll find an atmosphere that’s sophisticated without being stuffy, and USDA certified, aged and centre-cut beef steaks to match. We recommend starting with their lobster bisque before working up to one of their excellent steak choices such as the dry-aged NY strip or zabuton. Don’t forget a wine pairing from their award-winning wine list and some classic bananas foster for dessert.

5. P.S. Steak – Minneapolis

P.S. Steak takes classic steak and seafood dishes next level with their high-class service, warm atmosphere and world-class plates. It’s the perfect spot to spend a romantic evening or mark a special occasion with a delicious steak and a few cocktails. We recommend the Denver steak alongside the oysters, aligot potatoes and an old fashioned to bring it all full circle. 

6. J.D. Hoyt’s Supper Club– Minneapolis

If you’re looking for some of the best steaks in Minneapolis with a bit of Cajun zing, J.D. Hoyt’s Supper Club is the place to be. This cosy steakhouse is famous for its cajun flare, cosy setting and delicious charcoal grilled steaks. To get the full experience, you’ll need to start with an order of their crab cakes made with premium lump crab meat and their house cajun bearnaise. Then, move on to the NY strip steak. 

7. Farmington Steak House – Farmington

When it comes to casual neighbourhood steak joints, Farmington Steak House is the best in the biz. Locally owned and operated since 1985, Farmington Steak House is a place where people come together to enjoy delicious homestyle meals of epic proportions in the name of local community and good food. We recommend dining on Wednesday when they have their famous rib-eye special. Don’t bring the plastic either; this cosy spot is cash only.
