Just spent another evening at "Bern's Steakhouse" in Tampa, FL and it was WONDERFUL!!! Just moved up to the BEST that I've EVER had!!!

I had the Châteaubriand (42oz) for 5 and it was the most flavorful and tender steak that I've EVER had!!!

Been to Ruth's Chris, Shula's, Vinnie's, Flemmings, Angus Barn (Raleigh, NC) and MANY more, but Bern's is the BEST!!! JMHO.

We had 5 (2 men and 3 women), and we had about 1/3 of the 42 oz left over! Served along with baked potato, snow-peas, carrot strips, onion rings (strings), and rolls as well as salad. LOTS of food!

I absolutely LOVE Charley's Steak House. I first went to the one in Orlando, FL and have since become a regular at the one in Tampa. It's hands down the best steak join I have ever Been too!


Was it called Chief Charley's or something like that and did they have one in Tarpon Springs by the sponge docks? If so I have a funny (Not funny in Dad's eyes) story about that. My grandparents were very tight and could make a penny scream for air and dad drove a truck for a living and got a run to Florida and took mom with him this run and they were going to stop at the grandparents while there. The night they arrived grandpa went to take them out to dinner and they went to Chief or cheap Charley's there at Tarpon Springs and dad was thinking all right he is going to spend some money tonight. Well to make the story short they parked, walked inside and grandpa (who wasnt quiet at all) announces "Well take a sniff that is all we can afford from this place" then took a sniff and walked out and drove across the street to checkers.

I think the best steak or prime rib I have ever had was a place called Tom's Steakhouse I do believe in Chicago.

In Miami, I vote for Prime 112. In Los Angeles, I raise my fork for Cut. (The latter is run by Wolfgang Puck. They grill the steaks over natural lump charcoal, then finish them under a military strength broiler a la Peter Luger's). In the Napa Valley, I like Press. Tomorrow I'll tell you some of my favorite steak places overseas.

We are going there for Mother's Day this Sunday! Can't wait! I'll give you a hint every August they do this thing called Devour Downtown in Indianapolis and St. Elmo particpates in it...For 35 dollars you get either a wedge salad or their shrimp cocktail (3 large shrimp), a 6 oz Filet or Salmon and 3 desserts to choose from...It's an absolute steal!

So many great places on here. Love Peter Lugar's, RC, Charley's, Morton's. Obviously Gallagher's in NYC is a great one as well. One of my favorite, little known, high end chains is Shula's. I've eaten at the one in Philly a dozen times and it is always excellent.

Yes... Welcome aboard!

I like this little hole in the wall place called Juju's. :mrgreen: :oops: The atmosphere is awful and the cook is as mean as a snake, but the foods OK. :lol:

Seriously... my favorite place is Ruth's Chris even though it needs a singular name. And, I suppose I wouldn't be allowed to keep my Louisville card if I didn't mention Del Frisco's here. The place with 2 names is still my favorite. Oh... and Pat's too. Morton's is really good as well.

Maybe I just like all steak... :cow: :drunk: :drool: Not Golden Corral... definitely not Golden Corral.
