The Chateaubriand at Hy's.


*Listed in alphabetical order.

  • Hy’s

    One of the city’s grandest and most opulent dining rooms is also one of the best destinations for steak. All the usual steakhouse suspects are on the menu, as they should be, including a damn fine prawn cocktail. 

    Corner of 8 Ave. and 3 St. S.W., 403-663-3363,


  • Julius Caesar’s Steakhouse 

    Since it opened back in 1972, Caesar’s, which is still owned by its founding families, has been a dining institution. Meat is broiled over charcoal and the Caesar salad is prepared tableside. 

    512 4 Ave. S.W., 403-264-1222 and Willow Park Village, 403-278-3930,


  • Vintage Chophouse

    With its mahogany and leather interior and live music in the lounge on weekends, the ambience is just right for a cooked-to-perfection steak dinner with decadent and delicious sides, served family-style. 

    320 11 Ave. S.W., 403-262-7262,
