Where to fin a big ol’ hunk of beef cooked to perfection
| Katie Cannon/Eater Twin Cities

Supperclubs are the backbone of Minnesotan dining, so it’s no wonder that the Twin Cities boast some of the best steakhouses around. From queen-cut prime rib on Saturday night to bold t-bones cooked just right, these are the old and new school restaurants that serve that prime beef cooked perfectly to order.

1. Burch Steak

1933 Colfax Ave S
Minneapolis, MN 55403
(612) 843-1500
Visit Website

A modern take on the steakhouse, Burch offers grassfed or corn-finished steaks, each perfectly seasoned and prepared thanks to James Beard Award winning chef Isaac Becker. The menu is long, but the titular dish always satisfies. Rather than rich sides, lean into the beautifully charred veggie side dishes.

A popular stop for suit-wearing downtown workers for lunches and long-lingering happy hours. There’s fried calamari and lemon-dropped martinis holding out from another area on the menu alongside the crusty hunks of beef. This is an ideal restaurant for digging into a filet mignon medallion.

4. Murray's

26 South 6th St
Minneapolis, MN 55402
(612) 339-0909
Visit Website

Behind one of the all time great facades of downtown Minneapolis, this icon of the Twin Cities dining world is still family-owned. The butterknife steak is unbelievably tender and a true steakhouse wonder to behold. This can be top dollar dining, but budget-minded eaters can still get a taste at lower cost over lunch.

From the central downtown location to the be-balled bull artwork, this is the spot for impressive, old-school power lunching. Order an outsized cut of beef with all the hearty fixings and a big ol’ bottle of Caymus to impress.

Dating all the way back to when ladies wore gloves and men hats, not much has changed at Jax in generations. The patio is still a gorgeous place to take in a summer evening, and the salty crust on the prime rib is pure perfection.

Don’t look for a long menu here, just pick out one of the surprisingly affordable steaks and enjoy all that wood paneling.

9. Mancinis Char House

Copy Link
531 7th St W
St Paul, MN 55102
(651) 224-7345
Visit Website

Even after generations, Mancini’s is still the spot where families gather to celebrate all the big occassions with a char-kissed steak. The menu here is blessedly brief. Best to go steak or maybe surf and turf. The meal starts with a tray of pickled vegetables and crusty bread. Steaks come with salad, choice of potato, and a reminder why of how a classic becomes a classic. Still family owned, don’t be surprised if you see a Mancini grasping hands and calling patron after patron by name.
