Best Steak in Ann Arbor?

Where can you get the best steak in the city? It's my husband's 40th and we'll be in town for his b-day!

It's a bit subjective. If you're looking for fancy big-time steakhouse atmosphere (and prices), people like the Chop House on Main. And plenty of people say it's way overrated.

If you'd like an old-time, wood-paneled, smoke-filled steakhouse, I highly recommend Knights. It's on Dexter near Maple, and the only sign outside is a knight, like in chess. No name on the building. They're closed Sundays, but if you're there any other day, give them a try. The steak is delicious, and the calves liver is the best I've ever had, if you like that sort of thing.

A bit more upscale would be the Gandy Dancer http://www.muer.com/ Not just steak, but great seafood also.

Best bet and one of the finest restaurants in the whole state is the West End Grill on Liberty just west of Main Street. I believe there are five or so steaks on the menu, get it the way you want it. Best service you will have in town also. (Personal opinion, don't waste your money at the Chop House.) And let the West End know what you are celebrating there's sure to be a complimentary something in it for you. Don't wait though to get reservations. It is almost impossible to eat there without them, the place is that good.

You got that right! And Knight's is great if you like a little cigarette smoke with your dinner.
