    Best steakhouse in NYC. the porterhouse is the way to go. Don't miss the bacon appetizer. if you're lucky enough to go for lunch, get the burger. It's made from their dry-aged beef and it's only $12!

    One of the most genuine places I've ever been to. The steak (Porterhouse) for two was excellent and the waiters made our dinner a fantastic experience. This needs to be your first stop in NYC.

    It’s unclear what can be said about Pete Luger that hasn’t already been said. It’s a New York institution, and the steaks are damn good. Order the porterhouse.

    A historic atmosphere and a convivial crowd are always present at this packed Williamsburg stalwart. Customers in the know order the porterhouse for two…and always with a side of bacon. Read more

    It was founded in 1887 when Williamsburg was a city onto itself, and some say Luger is the greatest steakhouse in the world. Even if we can’t go quite that far, the steaks are damn good. Read more

    Bacon is a must, must, must. Tomatoes and onions are huge. Porterhouse for 2, can't go wrong. Been ordering these dishes for the past few years.

    Best steak in my life so far. Nice beerhall atmosphere. Just get the steak for x people.

    Amazing. Get "1" steak less than your party. Trust me. 3 grown men, 3 steaks, 3 sides left us aching, highly satisfied, and knowing we only needed 2.

    You definitely want Canadian bacon. You definitely want some sort of salad. You definitely want the steak for two (rare or bust). And you definitely want to end with the holy cow hot fudge sundae.

    Enjoyed the steak a lot, but was underwhelmed with the sides and the ambiance. Potentially a little overhyped, but worth a trip at least once!

    Come for the burger during lunch. Otherwise, go nuts on their house dry-aged steak for two or however many people you have. I like mine rare/medium rare, it's that rich in umami. Make reservations!

    Porter house steaks , lamb chops and bacon strips with their signature sauce . These three are the top flavors to try. Excellent atmosphere but a little bit overpriced ...

    Obviously, the steak is out of this world. Sides too. It has quite a different vibe from a typical steakhouse (wood tables, loud, more beer hall style) but it’s amazing. Totally worth it.

    Try the lunch time-only burger and you won't be disappointed. The onion rings were pretty awesome as well, as is the special Peter Luger steak sauce.

    Yes, you should eat all the steak your body can handle, but make sure you leave enough room for the scrumptious apple strudel with homemade schlag.

    Dude out with a massive Steak for Two, Sizzling Bacon, Whiskey Rocks, some Creamed Spinach and shovel in an enormous hunk of Cheesecake while you're at it. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    The best steak in all of New York City. Yes it's expensive and cash only. You have to make reservations far in advance but it will be the best steak you've ever had. The burgers are also fantastic.

    Everything from the butter-bathed porterhouse to the creamed spinach to the onion-sweetened home fries is, in a word, prime. Read more

    Fabulous steaks, fabulous German potatoes, fabulous apple strudel. Drinks could be a little more generous, considering that the cost of the drinks, could drive you to drink.

    Peter Luger's porterhouse hits the table in a pool of hot butter and blood, with the filet and sirloin pre-sliced. Read more

    Probably under order for your group if you're getting sides. We did steak for 4 with a group of 6 and it was the perfect amount. Must order sides: creamed spinach and bacon

    You will be admonished if you order your steak anything other than rare, so it's best to just let the kitchen take control. For sides, creamed spinach, onion rings, & German fried potatoes are a must.

    Over-priced and over-rated. Steak is good and juicy. Salmon was over-cooked. Skip creamed spinach and German potatoes for onion rings and fries. Bacon steak and salad with blue cheese appetizers best!

    The hamburger on the lunch money is what I go back for all the time. And of course the ice cream sundae. Sharing with the kids proves problematic. I have to order my own.

    Thanks to the decadent bacon, the delicious cheese, the not-too-creamy creamed spinach and the renowned Luger Sauce, Peter Luger Steakhouse's burger is one of the best. Read more

    Super old school and quite casual-old decor, fixtures & bustling atmosphere. Definitely not your typical bougie steakhouse. It's funny I don't consume meat but frequent steakhouses for other varieties

    Peter Luger's burger is no frills & all flavor. It offers a thinly charred exterior to a precious pink treasure of its juicy, dry-aged core.Topped with onion, American cheese, & a thick slab of bacon.

    Steak for two medium rare. German potatoes and creamed spinach. If you're feeling fat get a slice of thick cut bacon. It's all so so good. Cash only!

    Needless to say, this place is amazing. To not waste your time, obviously the steak is top notch. With that being said don't miss out on the Canadian bacon as an appetizer!! It's a must!

    Good meat but portion for 2 is enough for 4. Onion rings, sundae, creamed spinach all good!

    No need for a menu at this Brooklyn legend. You’re going to want the butter-basted Porterhouse for two (which, honestly, serves three), some thick-cut bacon, hash browns, and creamed spinach. Read more

    I've been to many steak houses and no one beats Lugers. Not only is the steak good but the salad, bacon and bread are just as good. Everything is delicious.

    Worth the trip into Brooklyn to get to this Mecca of steak. Porterhouse, creamed spinach, and a potato, and you'll be happy. Cash only, or get the house credit card (it's free) to look smooth.

    Worth the wait and I booked 3 weeks in advance? Portions are huge so don't go crazy. Not keen on their sauce. Steak is perfect without it.

    in 2013 I was obsessed but I went last night and my opinion has changed. The steak at Strip House + BLT are (dare I say) better; the vibe and prices are better. I did LOVE the hot fudge sundae tbh

    Maybe the best meal in NYC. Start with the bacon and the onion and tomato salad, get the steak rare, some creamed spinach on the side, and finish it off with a hot fudge sundae.

    Order the powerhouse. It is the best in NY. A good bottle of Malbec will pair perfect with this juicy and great flavor steak. Ill try to make it once a month. 🍷🍷❤️❤️

    Super flavorful and tender steak and the steak sauce compliments the meat well. The thick cut bacon was amazing I could have had 3 pieces! Definitely, a must have when in NYC.

    Good experience, and honestly a $22-ish cheeseburger isn’t all that expensive nowadays, but you only need to do it once, in my opinion.

    Insane. Everything was off the charts. Don't order too much. Start with the steak and order sides as needed.

    A NY institution that is sure to please. Had a delicious meal and fun time. Did not experience any of the issues Pete Wells did. Bring a wad of cash or your debit card and get ready to drop a bundle.

    Really nice burger! Ask for the bacon also. If the line is too big, get a place on the bar, have your meal right there and have a nice talk to the bartender. Make a reservation.

    This burger is only served at lunch, until 3:45 p.m. daily. Toppings include thick cut bacon or cheese, but lettuce and tomato are not suggested. It's all about the meat. Read more

    Have had the burger&bacon, but not the steak. I'll vouch for the burger: it's a sizable, juicy beast, with pretty good flavor. Loved the thick cut bacon.

    You MUST get the bacon. The steak portions are large so be careful how you order, Steak for Four easily feeds six people. Don't forget to leave room for apple strudel with schlag for dessert!

    Do yourself a favor & get a the Luger-Burger for lunch, with cheese. Get tomatos & onion, bacon, and fries for the table. You won't be disappointed by the best burger in the city. Make a reservation.
