7 Best Steakhouses in Missouri
1. Twisted Tree Steakhouse – St. Louis
In the heart of St. Louis, you’ll find one of Missouri’s best options for a steak dinner – Twisted Tree. This cosy neighbourhood steakhouse serves only the very best of 100% pure Black Angus and prime beef to be sure you have a dinner worth raving about for days. They also utilise a whole host of seasonal and local ingredients and offer a wine list in a league of its own. If all that weren’t enough, the service is simply unmatched. Be sure to get started with their famous house-flared pork belly, complete with maple syrup. Then move on to their roasted aged prime rib. You’ll never look back.
2. Jimm’s Steakhouse – Springfield
This Springfield fave is famous for its award-winning hospitality, top-notch steaks and lovely atmosphere complete with intimate seating and occasional live piano music. Whether you’re looking for a date night spot or just itching to treat yourself (you deserve it), Jimm’s fits the bill. Feeling a little adventurous? Start your evening off with an order of their famous escargot with garlic butter; and then move on to your steak pick. We recommend the top sirloin made with Black Angus centre-cut top sirloin with a baked potato.
3. Kreis’ Steakhouse – St. Louis
Since 1948, this family-run steakhouse has been whipping up the heartiest dinners in all of Missouri. Not only does this cosy neighbourhood spot make everyone feel right at home, they also serve the best lamb chops in town. From the toasted ravioli starter with Roma tomato sauce and parm right on down to the homemade amaretto cheesecake, the entire menu is delectable. Be sure to treat yourself to their 12 oz bacon-wrapped filet mignon and don’t forget a wine pairing.
4. Wilder’s Steakhouse – Joplin
Looking for a place that’s as atmospheric as the steaks are delicious? Wilder’s is for you. Housed in a building dating to 1908, complete with an original 1929 art deco bar and booths to match, Wilder’s is a Gatsby-worthy haunt. Get started with their scallops burre blanc and then opt for any of their incredible steak picks. We recommend the classic, marbled-beyond-belief ribeye.
5. Hamilton’s Urban Steakhouse & Bourbon Bar – St. Louis
Bourbon and steak. Is there any better pair? We think not. At Hamilton’s Urban Steakhouse & Bourbon Bar, they combine the very best of sizzling prime cuts and brown spirits. Even better? It’s all farm to table. Load up on their winter harvest salad to start. Then move on to the 22 oz bone-in ribeye seasoned with their house rub and served with whatever side you like, but we know the obvious choice is the roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Don’t forget to ask for a bourbon or rye pairing to bring it all full circle.
6. Citizen Kane’s Steak House – Kirkwood
When it comes to marble-y ribeyes that have been grilled to perfection, Citizen Kane’s does it best. Set in a classic turn of the century Victorian home, the atmosphere certainly isn’t lacking either. Treat yourself to an order of their zesty shrimp cocktail before moving on to the ribeye Delmonico smothered in their decadent brandy peppercorn sauce. And don’t forget a selection from their extensive wine list.
7. 801 Chophouse – Kansas City
801 Chophouse is one of the most recognisable names for delicious steak dinners across the Midwest, and it isn’t hard to see why. At 801 they are dedicated to providing excellent steak dinners in a fine dining atmosphere that rivals all others. Not only do they whip up the very best USDA prime steaks, but they’ve got an award-winning wine list to match alongside excellent bourbons and single malt scotches. Simply put, 801 Chophouse pulls out all the stops to make every dinner fit for a king. Each of their steak items are swoon worthy, but the Kansas City strip is their real claim to fame.
