Peter Luger Steak House
Posted by Bill Hohenstein on 07/08/2010
I've been traveling a lot lately and eating at some rather top rated steak houses across the USA. Through out my career I've wanted to try Peter Luger but never had the business reason to spend the cash....Well an old client and friend of mine gave me and my boss the reason to try the Great Neck venue. All I can say is WOW! Great value when compared to the other high end steak houses, service and the food was to die for PERIOD. Think I'm going back soon with the same friend sans the boss this time.

I'm going to make this quick, and I'm going to make this easy. This is the best steak you've ever had. They haven't changed a thing over the years and it is serious old school meat lovers dream. No, the staff isn't "cute" nor "cuddly" but your not there to get warm and fuzzy. You are there to have the best steak you've ever had.

I think it is just Amazing you go to the Boonie for what people call the best Steakhouse in NYC and it Really is. But besides the steak i Recomend a good piece of Bacon bacon is the best i have ever had. And the steak is just 100% Perfect so go and get the best food and for a secret go for a brithday and You get a traditional Bowl of weat cream so good so fresh. besides the food the service is pretty good but the waiters watch out they can get mad because they expect great manners and well dressed but besides that The Resturant is 99.9% so go and the price is so good but heads they only except cash and expect a Good tip so make sure you bring alot of Money in dollars so i hope you Go Thank You

The potatoes, steaks, drinks, and sundaes were ok. I had the steak well done so I lost a lot of tenderness of it. The German Potatoes are very salty. The steaks looks overburnt but it doesn't really bother me. My mistake to order a hot fudge sundae since it melted in a minute and the whip cream was damp warm.

We went there for Mother's Day. The steaks were excellent! The price was good. They get a bad rap for having rude waiters. On the contrary or waiter was friendly, informative and shook our hands we we left. A truly class restaurant.

My wife is a Foodie and I like good food as well, at the same time, as owner of a cattle ranch, I also enjoy a good size steak. Therefore, we travel just for food! This time we came to NYC with my dad and friend, so we've spent three days eating out and trying restaurants. We've heard so much about this place for so long that finally we decided to go. It's totally overrated! The steak isn't that great! Could be any college fraternity BBQ! My wife's fish didn't have taste. The side potatos looked recicled and were burned. The service is like if they were doing us a favor! Sincerely, my advice to all is don't fall on this trap. Regards

Peter Luger is a family tradition. We've been going there for years, and they still serve steak so delicious you could cry. When you go, don't expect fawning service. That's not what a steak house is about. But, that said, we've never had anything but excellent service. And we keep things simple -- Porterhouse, of course. We always order one size less than the menu recommends. Porterhouse for 3 easily serves 2. Always creamed spinach. Always German potatoes. Always a slice or two of bacon to share. Maybe tomatoes. And a sundae. That's it. No menu necessary. No sauce either. Nothing needs it. We are lucky to have Peter Luger! More than 100 years of Brooklyn tradition! The steak is truly butter smooth, peak flavor, and an anti-depressant. Yes, there are other delicious steak places, but there is room in our hearts and stomachs for all of the greats! Plus, you get chocolate gelt at the end. Splurge and take your dad.
