From casual to elegant, steakhouses in Atlanta are perfect for both business lunches and romantic dinners, as well as, birthday celebrations and family-friendly nights out. The best steaks in Atlanta can be found anywhere from New York-style steakhouses and Brazilian steakhouses to the 1940s-style supper club serving American cuisine. No matter the occasion, Atlanta has just the steakhouse for you.

Bones has been providing the finest service, steak and seafood since 1979, and that’s just one reason why it’s known throughout Atlanta as one of the most iconic restaurants citywide. This Buckhead restaurant is frequently found on various lists of best steak houses in the country and has been the recipient of numerous industry awards. Though Bones is on the pricier side of dining out (expect to spend about $100 per head), there’s no better place to enjoy a steak in Atlanta.
Chops Lobster Bar
Chops Lobster Bar is part of Atlanta’s acclaimed Buckhead Restaurant Group, and is ranked as one of the Top 10 steakhouses in the country. Located at Buckhead Plaza, Chops Lobster Bar is a popular spot for lunch and dinner with great seafood and USDA prime-aged beef.
Cooks & Soldiers
Cooks & Soldiers is a critically acclaimed, Basque-inspired restaurant from Castellucci Hospitality Group, located in the heart of Atlanta’s thriving West Midtown neighborhood. Named after the Tamborrada festival in San Sebastian, Spain, Cooks & Soldiers draws inspiration from the rich culinary history of the Basque country in Northern Spain and Southern France. The culinary team serves traditional pintxos and shareable dishes from the traditional wood fire asador grill.
This restaurant harkens back to Revolutionary War-era where people would gather to plot, scheme, indulge in boisterous drinking, revelry, revelation, revolution and grateful dining. Ticonderoga offers such delicacies as grilled swordfish, roasted squab and Ipswich clam roll.
Located in Virginia-Highland, the Highland Tap claims to be the city’s “premier subterranean hide-away,” and we won’t argue with that. It is dimly lit, warm and maintains a clubby atmosphere of authenticity. The Tap serves a great brunch with traditional eggs Benedict and a veggie Benedict, but for something a little later in the day, try the escargot, pimento cheese or prime rib. The martinis are among the best in town.
Located in the heart of Midtown, within walking distance of Atlanta attractions like the High Museum of Art and Atlanta Botanical Garden, STK Atlanta blends the modern steakhouse with chic lounge for a uniquely tantalizing fine dining experience. Featuring reimagined classic American dishes like grilled mac & cheese, bite-sized Lil’ BRGs, and – of course – some of the best steak in Atlanta.
Located in the Westside Provisions District, Marcel is a steakhouse inspired by its French counterpart. The restaurant provides a classic dining experience and service from a simpler time and place. Guests can expect heartfelt dishes, including Caesar salad prepared “a la minute” and Beef Wellington which requires a full twenty-four hours to prepare. The meat offered at Marcel is 100% Black Angus, USDA Prime, and Natural Prime.
