Steak House Ratings

It is important to note that my rating system does not account for atmosphere, ambience, wine list, side dishes or sauces and condiments. We are strictly talking about the steak itself. David Ross cooked some of the best steaks I have ever eaten at a shack deep in the woods on an island in the Mississippi River. So for me, the only thing that counts is the steak and its preparation. My system is based on a rating of 10 for perfection and lesser scores for lesser establishments. I have tried a lot of steakhouses with big reputations that I have not placed on this list. Like my grandmother used to say, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”
