We can’t imagine a better place to celebrate the holidays than at one of America’s greatest steakhouses.”

The list of the 100 Best Steakhouses in America are generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between October 1, 2015, and September 30, 2016. All restaurants in the “steak” cuisine category with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to their overall food rating.

    Missing Berns in Tampa

  2. Brandon L says...

    …also missing a little place in Brooklyn that sells their sauce in grocery stores all across the country.

    Probably because they are not listed on OpenTable, nor do they even take reservations.
