Finding that perfect steak can be difficult sometimes, but we’re taking the toughness out of your steakhouse search. Below are our picks for best, most succulent steaks in the ‘Burgh.

Capital Grille

301 Fifth Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Located in the heart of the Golden Triangle, the Capital Grille is a great place for a memorable dining experience. Hungry for a Porterhouse, Filet Mignon or Sirloin? The Capital Grille is famous for its dry-aged steaks, that are sure to make your mouth water. “Unreal flavor, unreal service,” says a staffer.

Mantini’s Wood Fired

Located in the city’s historic South Side, Pittsburgh Magazine sums up Mantini’s Wood Fired as: “dreamy steaks, classy space and big taste.” A KDKA staffer agrees, “It may not be famous for its steaks, but it should be. Just a fabulous dining experience all the way around!”

Bistecca Steakhouse & Wine Bar

210 Race Track Road Suite 200

    Two othe Steak House’s to mention.
    The Winchester Room on Route 30 and Route 48 in North Huntingdon,
    Also Andrews Steakhouse at the Rivers Casino. The Filet and Dry Aged NY Strip are pretty good.. Just give them a chance…..

      We have been to the Winchester Room in North Huntingdon twice, and I would only recommed that you avoid this over-priced poor quality restaurant.

      • Dave Robinson

        Make it a habit no matter where I travel world wide,to eat at Morton’s as it’s consistent in food and service everytime!

  • Chris Ditri

    Agreed on Andrews Steakhouse. I have been to each casino and Andrews is far better than Bistecca. Not sure how that restaurant made this list, have been there twice and have not had pleasant experiences, food was sub par and so was the service. Also left off the list is Hyde Park on the North Shore.

  • Mary Schaffer

    I agree with Mortons, and Capital Grill. But Texas Roadhouse and Bistecca are not very good steakhouses. I don’t understand how either would be considered Pittsburghs best steakhouses. Bistecca is in Washington County for goodness sakes.

  • bill

    what about Hyde Park on the north shore, fabulous steaks and other entree’s!!

  • aversas

    What about Pittsburgh Rare? That should be WAY before Texas Roadhouse. Texas Roadhouse is a generic chain. Give me a break. How much did they have to pay KDKA to get on this list?

  • shannon

    i agree with ron. i like winchester room also. i love ruth chris’ but is can be very expensive.

  • ajw

    Pittsburgh rare is by far the best
    the bone in ribeye cant be beat and the bloddy mary marinated filet is fantastic

  • 2pac

    Andrews is my favorite…..

  • Fred Zimmer

    Hyde Park- Downtown
    Ditka’s -Robinson
    Springfield Grill-Mars

  • Al

    Hyde Park

    Ruth’s Chris – yea, it’s a chain and, yea, it’s expensive but you get what you pay for…and then some. The steaks are tender, the broiled tomatoes are heaven. The wait staff is better at Morton’s, but RC is good eating. It’s ala cart and you can make you meal what you want. RC hands down.

  • Gilli

    Ruth’s Chris uses corn fed beef – GROSS.

    Mantini’s been closed for a while, Hon.

  • MA

    Pittsburgh Steak is WAY better than Ruth’s Chris and Pittsburgh Rare

  • buck

    Goo’s steak is the best—Mt. Pleasant, Pa.

  • VV

    Best steak i have had in at Nardies fine dining atop the Jonnet building in Monroeville.
