Great Steaks in NOLA For the Carnivore in Everyone

Despite all the amazing local flavors here in New Orleans, our guests just want a delicious and hearty steak.  Believe it or not, despite New Orleans being so much about our Cajun and Creole roots, there are still amazing places to find a beautiful cut of beef here in the Crescent City!

While there are an abundance of restaurants serving steak in the area, the following are our recommendations for an unforgettable carnivore experience.

Mr. John’s Steakhouse
Mr. John’s has been rated best in the city by both food critics and patrons alike. If you want a place to celebrate a very special occasion, or simply feel like indulging, this is the place! Everyone raves about the Filet Mignon and the Who Dat shrimp appetizer. Just a 10-minute streetcar ride down St. Charles Avenue from the inn will have your senses stirring and your tastebuds dancing!

Mr. John’s is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday and lunch on Friday. The restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays.  Please note that the typical guest check at Mr. John’s is on the higher side, so plan accordingly!

Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse
A classic American steakhouse with some very upscale options from escargot, turtle soup, and of course some of the best steaks in the city. Family-owned for 60 years, this steakhouse prides itself on perfect preparation and an ideal atmosphere. Steaks and sides are ordered a la carte, so do be prepared for that. However their Signature Dishes offer a full-plate meal. If you have room for dessert, definitely try the Coconut Cake.

Dickie Brennan’s is open for dinner every day, and open for lunch every Friday and during much of December. Want a more casual experience? Sit at the bar where you can order anything from the menu in a more relaxed environment.

Young’s Steakhouse
If you don’t mind a decent car ride, Young’s Steakhouse is found to the northeast from Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast. Yes, you will need a car to experience this restaurant, and yes, it’s worth the drive! The ambiance is a throwback to the 1970s (for better or worse), and the steaks are aged and cooked to perfection. All in all, it’s a solid steakhouse whose prices are a bit more reasonable.

Young’s is open for dinner only from Monday through Saturday (closed Sunday).


While you can find decent steaks in other eateries, these three are our choice for beef perfection. We will be glad to help you with reservations – just let us know your preference for day and time during your bed and breakfast getaway!
