The best steaks in NashvilleHow do these rankings work?
Kayne Prime is the artful fusion of a chef-chic boutique restaurant with a great American steakhouse. Although deeply rooted in the classic style, Kayne is a celebration of the now, featuring modern interpretations of the classics in the form of market-driven, fresh, farm-to-table creations.
With 360-degree views of the Nashville skyline, BOURBON STEAK is an American steakhouse with a twist. It serves up the finest cuts of American beef, with droolworthy sides. The Wasabi Horseradish Crust Filet is especially good- juicy with a real flavour punch.
STK Nashille is a fun place with superb steaks. Chow down on Wagyu flatirons, bone-in wet-aged cowgirl ribeyes, and dry-aged Delmonico, all juicy and perfectly charred. There’s some must-have steak toppings, from Alaskan lobster to truffle butter.
Union Common is a beautiful Art Deco bar and restaurant. It’s safe to say they’re masters at all things steak. Go for the classic steak frites (with duck fat fries) or the tender filet of tenderloin. It comes with okra, cauliflower-onion puree and chimichurri sauce.
Sperry’s Restaurant opened its doors in 1974 and is still a beloved staple when it comes to great steaks in Nashville. The steaks range from a bacon-wrapped, blue cheese-stuffed filet to rib-eye. Be sure to fill up on sides from their famous salad bar.
Capitol Grille puts a a fresh take on classic Southern cuisine. The stylish decor is a great backdrop for its fantastic dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood, and world-class cocktails. Order a simply prepared filet mignon and a side of mac n cheese and grilled asparagus. Heaven.
Head to the Nashville’s SoBro district for this hugely popular restaurant. A real highlight is the South of Somewhere steak: a juicy T-Bone with garlic-whipped potatoes and black pepper. The best thing about this place is it’s open from morning to night – you can get steak for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
