Whether for a romantic dinner with your partner served in a private nook, a picturesque veranda where family can catch up, a quick bite after work or a casual and lively skewer-style meal, this list of steakhouses will offer you the best steaks and the most of characteristic of steakhouse atmospheres.

1. Kayne Prime, 1103 McGavock Street

Dress up for the most elegant steakhouse in Nashville where the illustrious list of salads and sides are almost as beautiful as the guests themselves. Must try are the Black Kale or Black Olive Caesar to start. Complement your Wagyu steak with the Kennebec Fries (flavored with Vulcan’s Fire salt, Sambal Ketchup or Truffle Oil) and the Cream Corn Brulee. Seafood lovers will be most delighted with the popcorn lobster: served with freshly popped popcorn! The 7-shades of chocolate or banana bread are simple too fabulous to miss, so be sure not to leave until you have tried them too.

2. Old Hickory Traditional Steakhouse, 2800 Poryland Drive

This steakhouse offers the most picturesque veranda for drinks. A most elegant starter offering of Escargot with shiitakes, Riesling-poached Foie Gras or an Artisanal selection of Cheese. Much loved are also the Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes splashed with a touch of spicy slaw and ancho chili remoulade and the Lobster & Corn Bisque. Steak lovers have raved about the 22oz Cowboy Bone in Rib Steak, and others choose a lighter main so as to be able to delight in their 3-Layer Chocolate Cake or Creme Brulee. We say take the dessert with a Jittery Monkey in the lounge, and let the evening seep into the night.

3. Rodizo Grill, 166 2nd Ave N, Suite C

Simply the best social setting for a steak restaurant! Be served by gauchos (servers) who bring with them treasures of fillet mignons, bacon wrapped chicken, pork medallions, lamb and fish on hot skewers freshly grilled from the fire. Be sure to load up on the grilled pineapples with their sticky juices that give the most exotic pairing to the meat. Veggie lovers are going to be wild about the fantastic salad bar.

4. Morton’s — The Steakhouse, 618 Church Street

We all know the iconic steakhouse but what we want to speak about here is the bar. It is a great hangout for fantastic steak sandwiches and cocktails. Think of all the goodness of Morton’s in bar creations — fillet mignon sandwiches, tuna tacos, crab sandwiches, short rib tacos — cooked to perfection and served with cocktails or wine! It is surely an impressive alternative to the usual drinks after work.

5. Ruth’s Chris Steak House, 2100 W End Ave

We just love the Swizzle and Swirl Happy Hour Menu at Ruth’s Chris. Their delicious Pomegranate Martini is served in a cold glass rimmed with sugar, and artfully blends smirnoff, cointreau, pomegranate and cranberry juice, but do try their 17 recipes of 2016 Hand-Crafted Cocktails. Swirl lovers can be spoilt by the glass or the bottle, and this is all pre-dinner! Ruth’s Bone-in Filet or Bone-in New York Strip are the most raved about mains, and hearty vegetables and potatoes cooked in every possible fashion are sure to please.
