Okay, I've always heard the myth the legend, so I wanted to go as a casual fan of steakhouses. Well, I know three or four that have better steaks. Also, it's a bare bones place, nothing fancy and good for people looking for that, but for the price, I think it's time to update. Also, the clientele (not most), but they are on the loud bad manner side. We noticed two parties where one of the guys from each party, just cursed and cursed religiously. Not once did the staff politely ask them to speak more quietly. I mean, there is family and kids that dine there, and for that price, I guess they should not be there or I guess that's part of the 'charm'. The german potatoes were excellent, the 'famous' sauce tastes like shrimp cocktail. The waiter was superb older gentleman. The steak for two was just above average. Beer was nice and cold and served quickly. Tomato and Onion is 10 dollars, not worth it, though the tomato was tasty. I would try the bacon for a better value or have the mixed salad, from what I saw at other tables.

The stake for two was ok, but never ever for this price!! The waiter was very self confident (should not act as "I am always right") and the decor looked like any other middle-ranged restaurant. Go only if you don't care about the prices.

Excellent service, and the steak is awesome. I'll be back. The "cash only" thing is a bummer.

I go to steakhouses often for work. While Luger's steak is good, it is not the best. It is not worth the trip to a lousy neighborhood in the middle of no where for a decent steak, otherwise crappy menu, outdated decor, and poor service. When there were 5 steakhouses in all of NY, it may have been the best. I can name at least 5 better steaks and overall steak experiences in NY. Oh yea, and if you are going for work, remember - Cash only!

Luger's is a great steakhouse. I travel across the US for 5 yrs, trying every major cities steakhouse, about 50 in all. And Luger's as NYC girl says, tops them all for steak. Their are better wine lists elsewhere, dessert lists, port lists, bourbon and scotch lists. But Luger's is for the fan of Porterhouse steaks. Not service, not martini's, not fern bars, not scenery, not ambience. And for the people who said the steak doesn't taste good?! I've been to Gibson's, Rainwater's, Mo's, Spencer's, Pappa's, Gene & Georgetti's, and Luger's steakhouse has got a great tasting steak with or without their sauce. If you don't know the above steakhouses, why are you even writing a review of steak places. Bottom line, Luger's is an icon, and I admit their steaks are superb. In case your wondering, Gibson's IMHO, is second on a much grander scale, there you will find service, desserts, wine lists, bourbons, scotches, ambience, power dinners. That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

The steak was TOO greasy -> it actually swam in my stomach. Next, their world-famous Old Fashioned Steak Sauce was Too Sweet. - And lastly, their creamed Spinach had No Taste. - All I did enjoy was the Green Salad appetizer, their Coffee was absolutely Delicious & the Waiters were fast & extremely polite.

This is the steakhouse that has spawned many other steakhouses with a similar style/menu. So you KNOW it's gotta be good to be copied that much! I know it's in Brooklyn, but come on, we're not babies. There are such things as cabs and it's literally right over the bridge. Don't get me wrong, I ABHOR leaving Manhattan, but honestly....it's not too rough of a journey out there. You just GOTTA be a steaklover too. I'm not talking I-like-my-meat-cooked-medium kinda steaklover. I'm talkin' I-like-my-meat-STILL BREATHING steaklover. You gotta crave MEAT. You can't come for the ambience 'cuz it's just whatever. You gotta come for the MEAT. THAT's where all of your cash is goin' (btw no VISA, MC, or anything else....except the Luger CC). You're not paying for their Manhattan rent, for their restaurant design or decor....you go there and pretty much 100% of your cost IS the chunk of meat itself. It is beautifully broiled. Super juicy with a good char. The bacon is thick and delicious and amazingly not too fatty tasting considering you're getting a SLAB of bacon. The potatoes and spinach are mediocre. The tomato and onion dish is just literally, a thick slice of tomato and a thick slice of onion.....THAT'S IT. If that actually sounds tasty to you, go for it. But it's really nothing special. But again, you're not coming there for the chef's interesting flavor profiles. YOU ARE GOING FOR THE MEAT! If you are going to say you are a NYC steaklover, you just GOTTA check this place out at least once.
