10 Hottest Steakhouses in South Florida

By Carissa Chesanek
June 12, 2014

With Father's Day right around the corner, we got to thinking about steakhouses. Ah, who are we kidding? We're always thinking about steakhouses. Here are 10 go-to places that never disappoint. 

  • Steak 954

    Stephen Starr keeps things chic in Broward with his lavish upscale steakhouse parked inside the W Fort Lauderdale hotel, complete with a 15-foot jellyfish tank, direct ocean views and modern takes on meaty plates. 

    401 N. Ft. Lauderdale Beach Blvd.; 954-414-8333

  • Prime 112

    An über-sexy South Beach staple noted for its buzzing bar with attractive scenesters and upscale dining room filled with A-listers, the stylish chophouse also has its menu down, featuring a plethora of prime-cut meats and classic comfort food-style sides. 

    112 Ocean Dr.; 305-532-8112

  • PB Steak

    The Pubbelly Boys' rustic little steakhouse in South Beach keeps things casual with exposed-wood beams and communal tables, but the food is anything but simple. The playful, shareable dishes include crispy pig ears and bone marrow with short-rib marmalade. 

    1787 Purdy Ave.; 305-695-9550

  • Chima Brazilian Steakhouse

    Endless meat skewers and the expansive salad bar make this trendy churrascaria in Ft. Lauderdale a go-to for hungry carnivores. Start with a drink at the courtyard bar.

    2400 East Las Olas Blvd.; 954-712-0580

  • BLT Steak

    Don't let the location fool you: the Ocean Drive meat market chain is legit, thanks to its posh but not-over-the-top SoBe decor paired with high-end charred chops and to-die-for monster popovers. 

    1440 Ocean Dr.; 305-673-0044

  • The Forge

    After a massive revamp, the iconic Miami Beach standard turned into a showy multiroom venue with Alice in Wonderland-esque furniture and funky chandeliers, but the New American menu remains on point with stellar steak selections.

    432 41st St.; 305-538-8533

  • Red, The Steakhouse 

    While the Angus beef and impressive wine collection keep most elegant eaters happy, the ambiance at the South Beach favorite is equally alluring, with its rich red undertones and brick-accent walls. 

    119 Washington Ave.; 305-534-3688

  • Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

    Generating a slightly older, powerhouse crowd, the Downtown space offers petite filet mignon and Cajun rib-eye in a traditional setting with floor-to-ceiling windows that show off the bay view.

    315 S. Biscayne Blvd.; 305-487-7130

  • Smith & Wollensky

    While the ritzy interior is appealing, it's the waterside patio that draws big crowds. The South Beach icon serves classic steakhouse grub like dry-aged beef and stuffed Maine lobster that won't disappoint.

    1 Washington Ave.; 305-673-2800

  • Bourbon Steak

    Inside Aventura's Turnberry Isle Hotel, the deluxe Michael Mina steakhouse pulls out all the stops with top-notch service and a premium menu of sinful steaks, mouthwatering burgers and dangerously habit-forming duck-fat fries. 

    19999 W. Country Club Dr.; 786-279-6600
