The Best Places for Steak in MinneapolisHow do these rankings work?
Manny’s Steakhouse has some wonderfully flavoursome cuts, including their bone in fillet. The steaks are all USDA Certified, 100% genetically verified, Black Angus beef from their own herds. In short, this is a steak lover’s dream with cooking and service provided by people at the very top of their game.
This is where serious steak lovers in Minneapolis come to for premium cuts that are cooked to absolute perfection. Dig into a Wagyu bavette, grass-fed sirloins or a 120-day dry aged rib eye. As well as being famed for their creative cuts, Burch really comes into its own with the side dishes… There’s pommes purée, with poutine and horseradish or roasted cauliflower with anchovies and burrata, to name but a few.
Murray’s Steakhouse is an institution when it comes to the best steak in Minneapolis, and it has been that way since opening in 1946. With a menu full of droolworthy steaks, it’s hard to choose just one.
Try their legendary 28 oz strip sirloin for two, hand-cut by their in-house butcher Boyd, who has been with the restaurant for 37 years. It comes with choice of Murray’s French onion soup or Murray’s Caesar salad and choice of baked potato, mashed, au gratin or seasonal vegetables.
This local legend serves a delicious menu of premium steak cuts and fresh seafood flown in from all over the world. Jax Cafe is the place you go to when you want to be spoilt with amazing service and food that is consistently superb. It’s nothing too fancy, just great quality.
Go for their signature filet mignon or the char-crusted ribeye, served over crispy hashbrowns with sauteed mushrooms.
This popular cajun-style steakhouse is the sort of place you’ll rave about for weeks after dining at – it’s got tender and juicy cuts, delicious side dishes and a full cocktail menu. All their entrees are cooked over a 100% hardwood burning charcoal grill for a beautiful smokey flavour.
Order the Steak Spaulding: a tenderloin filet topped with a crab cake and béarnaise sauce, served with asparagus and hash browns.
Butcher & The Boar is a creative take on an old school steakhouse, serving up New-American food and a hearty menu of chef-crafted meats, handmade sausages, and charcuterie. They source their ingredients from local farms and you can really taste the quality in every bite.
Steak highlights include a 16-oz Wagyu rib eye with farro-beet risotto, grilled asparagus, preserved lemon, and fromage blanc.
This classy French-style restaurant serves top cuts of beef in a fantastic, classical style. They don’t over complicate things, because when you have their produce and technique you simply don’t need to. Choose from an NY Strip or Chateaubriand for two, and upgrade that juicy steak with some gourmet toppings. Think: gorgonzola, lobster tail or sea scallops.
