    One of the most genuine places I've ever been to. The steak (Porterhouse) for two was excellent and the waiters made our dinner a fantastic experience. This needs to be your first stop in NYC.

    Best steakhouse in NYC. the porterhouse is the way to go. Don't miss the bacon appetizer. if you're lucky enough to go for lunch, get the burger. It's made from their dry-aged beef and it's only $12!

    A historic atmosphere and a convivial crowd are always present at this packed Williamsburg stalwart. Customers in the know order the porterhouse for two…and always with a side of bacon. Read more

    The best steak in all of New York City. Yes it's expensive and cash only. You have to make reservations far in advance but it will be the best steak you've ever had. The burgers are also fantastic.

    Bacon is a must, must, must. Tomatoes and onions are huge. Porterhouse for 2, can't go wrong. Been ordering these dishes for the past few years.

    It was founded in 1887 when Williamsburg was a city onto itself, and some say Luger is the greatest steakhouse in the world. Even if we can’t go quite that far, the steaks are damn good. Read more

    Best steak in my life so far. Nice beerhall atmosphere. Just get the steak for x people.

    Come for the burger during lunch. Otherwise, go nuts on their house dry-aged steak for two or however many people you have. I like mine rare/medium rare, it's that rich in umami. Make reservations!

    Amazing. Get "1" steak less than your party. Trust me. 3 grown men, 3 steaks, 3 sides left us aching, highly satisfied, and knowing we only needed 2.

    Try the lunch time-only burger and you won't be disappointed. The onion rings were pretty awesome as well, as is the special Peter Luger steak sauce.

    Over-priced and over-rated. Steak is good and juicy. Salmon was over-cooked. Skip creamed spinach and German potatoes for onion rings and fries. Bacon steak and salad with blue cheese appetizers best!

    Needless to say, this place is amazing. To not waste your time, obviously the steak is top notch. With that being said don't miss out on the Canadian bacon as an appetizer!! It's a must!

    Everything from the butter-bathed porterhouse to the creamed spinach to the onion-sweetened home fries is, in a word, prime. Read more

    Probably under order for your group if you're getting sides. We did steak for 4 with a group of 6 and it was the perfect amount. Must order sides: creamed spinach and bacon

    You will be admonished if you order your steak anything other than rare, so it's best to just let the kitchen take control. For sides, creamed spinach, onion rings, & German fried potatoes are a must.

    Thanks to the decadent bacon, the delicious cheese, the not-too-creamy creamed spinach and the renowned Luger Sauce, Peter Luger Steakhouse's burger is one of the best. Read more

    Peter Luger's burger is no frills & all flavor. It offers a thinly charred exterior to a precious pink treasure of its juicy, dry-aged core.Topped with onion, American cheese, & a thick slab of bacon.

    Often overlooked for a prime rib, their burger patty is over ½ lb of dry aged, juiciness, which is topped with raw onion, some classic American cheese, and optional bacon (do it!). Read more

    The hamburger on the lunch money is what I go back for all the time. And of course the ice cream sundae. Sharing with the kids proves problematic. I have to order my own.

    It’s unclear what can be said about Pete Luger that hasn’t already been said. It’s a New York institution, and the steaks are damn good. Order the porterhouse.

    You definitely want Canadian bacon. You definitely want some sort of salad. You definitely want the steak for two (rare or bust). And you definitely want to end with the holy cow hot fudge sundae.

    Do yourself a favor & get a the Luger-Burger for lunch, with cheese. Get tomatos & onion, bacon, and fries for the table. You won't be disappointed by the best burger in the city. Make a reservation.

    Worth the trip into Brooklyn to get to this Mecca of steak. Porterhouse, creamed spinach, and a potato, and you'll be happy. Cash only, or get the house credit card (it's free) to look smooth.

    I've been to many steak houses and no one beats Lugers. Not only is the steak good but the salad, bacon and bread are just as good. Everything is delicious.

    No New York experience is complete without a hunk of spectacular steak. No one brings it better than Peter Luger. No need to even ask for a menu! Just get a steak!

    No need for a menu at this Brooklyn legend. You’re going to want the butter-basted Porterhouse for two (which, honestly, serves three), some thick-cut bacon, hash browns, and creamed spinach. Read more

    You MUST get the bacon. The steak portions are large so be careful how you order, Steak for Four easily feeds six people. Don't forget to leave room for apple strudel with schlag for dessert!

    Steaks are okay nothing special, their homemade steak sauce is one of the best I've tried. No matter how full you are you have to try the pecan pie with whipped cream, its perfect.

    Been to this place when I was a kid with my mom and stepfather. The place is a great place for tourist who vist NYC, especially the Williamsburg. Brooklyn area. If you love steak, hashbrowns, potatoes
  • Jane P.
    in 2013 I was obsessed but I went last night and my opinion has changed. The steak at Strip House + BLT are (dare I say) better; the vibe and prices are better. I did LOVE the hot fudge sundae tbh

    start with the bacon, and don't fill up on the onion rolls. get your steak one level less cooked than you normally would; you can cook it more on your 1000 degree plate. oh, and do NOT ask for a menu.

    Doesn't matter where you come from, if you visit NYC then visiting Peter Lugers in Williamsburg Brooklyn is a must, short cab ride from LES, you wont be disappointed make sure to bring your wallet

    No matter where you are, let us tell you that this is worth the trip! Order the porterhouse that gives a large portion of juicy and absolutely flavorful meat – a taste you can’t stop thinking about.

    Bring some money and give it to the matridee to skip out on waiting for a table. Order the bacon, creamed spinach, and a steak for two. Also use the steak sauce on the bread!!

    Really nice burger! Ask for the bacon also. If the line is too big, get a place on the bar, have your meal right there and have a nice talk to the bartender. Make a reservation.

    This burger is only served at lunch, until 3:45 p.m. daily. Toppings include thick cut bacon or cheese, but lettuce and tomato are not suggested. It's all about the meat. Read more

    Dry-aged porterhouse for two is a work of carnivorous art. The steaks are every bit as good as they're said to be. (Prime Meats, Porter House New York, Minetta Tavern, and Prime House New York.) Read more

    Maybe the best meal in NYC. Start with the bacon and the onion and tomato salad, get the steak rare, some creamed spinach on the side, and finish it off with a hot fudge sundae.

    Everyone should go here once in their life. Amazing place to have a steak, bacon, tomatoes and onions. Bring CASH and good luck with the reservations.

    I crave the bacon with their special tomato sauce at least twice a week, a must-go to restaurants at least once in your life. If you're in Manhattan it's just a short train ride to Williamsburg. -Alex

    Insane. Everything was off the charts. Don't order too much. Start with the steak and order sides as needed.

    It's a must-go steak house in Brooklyn. Porterhouse , bacon and tomato are must have. You might be able to get a table If you go to the one in Great Neck on weekday night without reservations.

    Even with a reservation there's always a wait but enjoy's all part of the experience. Get the bacon. And order your steak rarer than you like - it cooks even more on the plate.

    Friendliest people in the world. We're regulars here, and every waiter stops what they're doing and greets us. Every single one, even just in passing. How are you doing? Welcome back. Its amazing.

    Have had the burger&bacon, but not the steak. I'll vouch for the burger: it's a sizable, juicy beast, with pretty good flavor. Loved the thick cut bacon.
