MONTCO'S BEST STEAKHOUSES

A Cut Above the Rest

When you are looking to fulfill your carnivore cravings, nothing beats a juicy steak—sizzling cuts with the eye appeal of crisscross grill marks, the scent appeal of tantalizing aromas and the taste appeal of perfect seasoning and cooking.

Montgomery County is home to nearly 60 steakhouses, all of them ready to serve you the cut of your choice. Here's a few of our favorites: 

CREED'S SEAFOOD AND STEAKS

CREED'S SEAFOOD & STEAKS

499 N. Gulph Road
King of Prussia, PA 19406

Since 1982, Creed's Seafood and Steak has made its name known for excellence in four basics: a great wine list, excellent service, a good bar and premium cuts of beef. Find out why one of King of Prussia's most consistently reliable restaurants received a 2013 distinction as one of the best steakhouses in the area.

BRIDGET'S STEAKHOUSE

8 W Butler Pk
Ambler, PA 19002

Montgomery County, Pa., was home to not one "best of" steakhouses from thrillist.com but two. Joining Creed's is Bridget's Steakhouse in Ambler. It's impossible to spotlight one dish among the many excellent choices, but if cornered, we would go for the service-for-two Surf-n-Turf Butcher Block. Extra perk: The mixology talents of Logan the bartender.

MORTON'S THE STEAKHOUSE

MORTON'S THE STEAKHOUSE

640 West DeKalb Pike, Suite 1250
King of Prussia, PA 19406

Is there more traditional starter to a steakhouse meal than a wedge salad? Maybe not. At Morton's the Steakhouse in King of Prussia, it's the perfect opener to a serving of rib-eye - or any of the other cuts, for that matter. The plush setting and expertise of the staff - both chefs and servers - make Morton's a great choice for a special birthday or anniversary.

THE CAPITAL GRILLE

CAPITAL GRILLE

236 Mall Boulevard
King of Prussia, PA 19406

A meal at King of Prussia's Capital Grille is a true occasion. From the swanky setting to the white-glove attentiveness of the wait staff (Matthew is terrific; as is Dana), the experience is five-star from start to finish. If you like a little techie-coolness factor with your meal, know that the wine list here is presented on an iPad.

DINEKOP - RUTH'S CHRIS STEAK HOUSE

RUTH'S CHRIS STEAKHOUSE

220 North Gulph Road
King of Prussia, PA 19406

Flavorful, cooked to perfection and tender enough to be sliceable with the side of your fork. Those descriptions are just the start of assessing the filet mignon at Ruth's Chris Steak House in King of Prussia. Complete this centerpiece entrée with soup, a salad and a blended-to-perfection apple martini. 

SULLIVAN'S STEAKHOUSE

SULLIVAN'S STEAKHOUSE

700 West DeKalb Pike
King of Prussia, PA 19406

At Sullivan's Steakhouse in King of Prussia, hombres will be hard pressed to find something more tempting than the 22-ounce cowboy cut bone-in rib-eye. Save room for dessert: The s'mores mousse cake also features that open-range, cooked-over-a-campfire flavor.

RED CEDAR GRILL AND COCKTAILS

249 Bethlehem Pk
Colmar, PA 18915

Best to arrive in Colmar's Red Cedar Grill and Cocktails hungry: The marinated rib-eye is portioned to be huge, comprising two steaks. But once you start in, you'll find that they have been cooked to perfection, making it hard to stop. Need a recommended starter? We'll say one word: mussels.

NABRASA BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE

NABRASA BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE

680 N Easton Rd
Horsham, PA 19044

For a South American approach to savory servings of sirloin, it's difficult to resist the temptation of NaBrasa Brazilian Steakhouse in Horsham. NaBrasa is a carnivore's carnival, where the presentations of choice cuts of meat continue to fill your plate until you literally tell the servers to stop.

CARRIAGE HOUSE RESTAURANT

745 Gravel Pk
East Greenville, PA 18041

The Carriage House Restaurant in East Greenville serves up a fantastic rib-eye—on par with more high-profile steakhouses—at a terrific value. Not only that, but the setting is uniquely charming, evoking a time when ladies and gentlemen arrived in horse and buggy for an evening's repast.

ROADHOUSE GRILLE

ROADHOUSE GRILLE

4022 Skippack Pk
Skippack, PA 19474

Skippack's Roadhouse Grille has just reopened from a six-month closure for a renovation of the interior, which is delightfully fresh and inviting. The chef's mastery of meat here extends even to something as theoretically mundane as meatloaf. Do not underestimate, however. At the Roadhouse, it's a culinary standout.

FIREBIRDS WOOD FIRED GRILL

51 Town Center Dr
Collegeville, PA 19426

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill is relatively new to the Collegeville area but it has already distinguished itself for excellence. Here's a neat variation to the steak and vegetable presentation: Firebirds serves them as filet kabobs with a balsamic ancho chili drizzle.
