There are few things in the world as delightful as eating a perfectly cooked steak.
Columbus may not be known as the steak capital but we do have plenty of places to grab a juicy filet. Not everyone is living that luxurious life all the time.
Every now and then though, it’s nice to treat yourself to a perfect steak. Here’s where you should do that around Columbus.
Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse
About: Hyde Park is an amazing, top-notch steakhouse. Sometimes looking at a menu with no prices can be intimidating, but this steakhouse does their best to accommodate all customers. Hyde Park offers an awesome Early Night dinner special but the only catch is you’ll need to eat before 6 p.m. But that just leaves more time for fun date night activities afterward! If you want to splurge, you can order one of their aged steaks in a variety of styles, including Steak ala Oscar, Steak au Poivre, and Tournedos au Bleu.
Address: 569 North High Street Columbus, OH 43215

The Top Steak House
About: Although it’s a Columbus institution, I just made my first visit to The Top last year. And man did it live up to the hype. The restaurant itself is like stepping back in time and I honestly expected the Rat Pack to show up at any moment. Everything is good at The Top, including the cocktails.

Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse
About: Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse may be a relative newcomer to Columbus, but it’s taken the city by storm. This is a “Go Big or Go Home” kind of place, so don’t plan a night out here unless you’ve got the wallet to go with it. The restaurant doesn’t just serve great steak, they’ve also got a killer seafood menu.

About: The Avenue Steak Tavern bills themselves as an “all-occasion” sort of place, and they’re not kidding. They are reasonably priced and the service is always spot on.
Address: 1307 Grandview Ave, Grandview Heights, OH 43212

About: I love Eddie Merlot’s. The service is always amazing and the food is even better. Not only can you get a great cut of meat, the rest of the menu is high quality. While normally I’m a mashed potatos with steak kind of girl, you shouldn’t skip out on the opportunity to try their scalloped potatoes, which come with a jalapeño cheese sauce.
