the porterhouse is what dreams are made of. i've been coming here since the 1960's. it's a steak house; it's for the hunter in us, not the effete "how d'you maitre d'" type who coddles and is a sycophant. It's "sit down, what do you want, eat." it's about the animal in us. this is not foie gras; it's steak! it you want to be coddled, go somewhere else and stop complaining. there's never been a steak like the ones served here. plain and simple.

First vist in may 2011. The steak was very good. Service excellent. My wife and I had steak for two at 82.50 and 3 glasses of house red wine. Total bill including tip was $190.00. Very overpriced!

I went to Luger's for the first time yesterday for lunch. We walked up to the hostess, who greeted us with "what do you want". A nice start to the most disappointing experience I've had at a steakhouse. I ordered the lunch steak for 1 medium rare, it came medium to medium well. My water glass was empty the entire meal and my iced tea was never re-filled. The only thing our waiter said to us the entire time we were there was, "we dont have lemonade". He literally dropped off our food and walked away, never once asking if everything was cooked properly, how it tasted, did we need anything, nothing. For a $36 lunch steak, I can honestly say I have grilled better at home and or any other chain had this steak beat. I will never go back and no one should waste their time or money going to this place.

Went to Lugers on a very busy Saturday night and was seated promptly by the host. Ordered shrimp cocktail, which was massive. The bacon, which was delicious and a Caesar salad. For steak, our party of 4 shared two porterhouses f or two, cooked medium rare as requested. Also ordered creamed spinach and the french fries which were nice and large. While all very full, we split a piece of the apple strudel and the chocolate mousse pie which were both on target. All in all, a great meal and a great time. Looking forward to my next visit.

Was really looking forward to going to this place for my bro's birthday. We've been to so many steak houses in NYC and decided that this was the time for "the best". I can say that the creamed spinach was the best I've had and that "special sauce" that goes on everything was quite tasty - but I don't think you can continue a reputation based on spinach and sauce - yikes! We all sent back lots of fat and grizzle on our plates - some pretty inedible stuff. The whole steak "thing" was just not special at all. Well - I've been to Luger's and now my search can continue for a steak in a restaurant that's at least as good and hopefully better than what I can do on the grill at home.

I was so excited to go to Peter Lugar's for my birthday... but the whole night was just a big disappointment. If anyone wants to go there... please note that they seat you according to the way your party "looks', so if you have a suit on then you are seated in the main dining room. If not, then you are off to the side. They also sneer at you when you are paying with a debit card...! (Isn't that the same as cash?) Yes, they smile and say thank you when it is cash! They don't accept debits!! The steak wasn't bad at all! It was delish! It would have been better if the sides came on time or with the steaks.. the waiter completely forgot! A complete dining experience should be based on the whole package, and to me, the service and atmosphere are also integral!! Very disappointed. You can get the same quality steak at another steakhouse with more options for sides and better service any other day.

Just came from Peter Luger's in Brooklyn. We haven't been there in years, and we were really looking forward to it. It was so completely different from years past. It started with the rolls being stale. It continued with the steak tasting like supermarket "choice" meat. Spinach and potatoes were as good as we remembered. Dessert was average at best. Today was the last time we will ever return to Luger's. It's sad to see that Luger's feels their reputation is enough to get the crowds in, and in return has sacrificed the quality of their food because they think no one will notice. We did. Don't waste your money.
