We went here for lunch and the steak is so big. We only ordered one steak, salad and fries to share between us. It's just good amount food. The steak is thick and maltjng in my mouth. The service is also very good and friendly. It is the world's best steak.

Best steak I have ever had, hands down. The place in unpretentious and you need cash. However, the food is amazing and we loved our servers. Favorites were the warm potato salad, the bacon slab and the steak for two. perfectly seasoned and served on a hot grilling plate. TRuly exceptional. Plan to go back for my birthday.

The steak is the best you will find in the U.S. Sizzling in butter on a burning plate, every bite melts in your mouth. Don't ask for a menu...look it up on line because the waiter will be even more snide.

Well trained staff. Meat is the star and Porterhouse is all they have. Meat for the number in your party. Simple. Sides are ok. Onion roll is perfection. You will have a coronary but it will be worth it. I like the feeling of the place. You are transported to another time. Unless you have their CC, rob a bank... More

Everything about this restaurant was exceptional. We came for lunch so I opted for a burger instead of a steak, it may have been the best burger I've ever had. Another member of our party ordered steak that we all tried, and I can see why this place is so well known. I'd also recommend the thick cut bacon, it's... More

The steak was fantastic as usual in a good steakhouse. In my opinion, you could also expect some service for this price: The steak arrived first at the table. Ten minutes later we received the side dishes. Twenty minutes later we got our drinks when we were half through with the steak. I asked several times for the missing beverages... More

8 of us, all family, met at Peter Lugers on a Sunday for the usual fantastic steak, creamed spinach and fries. 3 in the party had the fresh and high quality salmon instead. We all loved our meals and enjoyed our attentive waiter, as well. A little too expensive for us to go very often. My Father started to eat... More

My partner and I went out of our way to visit Peter luger's steakhouse based on glowing recommendations. We went for lunch and did not have to wait long despite no booking. Unfortunately it was downhill from there. The staff were cold (although not rude as such). We knew that we needed cash but did not realise the steak was... More

This restautant has been in existance since 1880's and has best NY Steak Restaurant for 28 years! So they know what they are doing. Only a limited selection on the menu, but it is so good you do not need more. GREAT steaks, well cooked and melt in the mouth taste and flavour. The serves are very generous. Our waiter... More

This is a classic old-school restaurant. No frills at all - just excellent steak accompanied by basic sides and some sauce. They don't even have tablecloths or placemats! When I say basic sides I mean basic - we ordered tomatoes and onion and that's what we got: a plate containing one sliced tomato and one sliced onion - they did... More
