In no particular order…
Best Steaks in Montgomery – Charles Anthony’s ‘The Pub’
‘The Pub’ trends on the upscale while still remaining affordable and delicious. They’ve got a traditional, white tablecloth approach that isn’t overbearing or too professional. In fact, for a restaurant with ‘The Pub’ in the title, they are actually a pretty good candidate for date night – and the steaks are to die for. Check out our extensive list of other great date night options past this link.
Best Steaks in Montgomery – Central
While Charles Anthony’s caters to the casual diner, Central plays no bones about its place atop the pile of upscale restaurants in the River Region.

Best Steaks in Montgomery – Firebirds Wood Fired Grill
Here on Central Alabama Weekend, we do our best to stay away from chains – we like to bring you the local flavor that makes each region of our beautiful state so succulent. However, we can’t ignore the steaks that reside inside Firebirds Wood Fired Grill out in Eastchase. The destination is a popular hangout spot for people of all ages, and the food is absolutely delicious.
Best Steaks in Montgomery – Longhorn Steakhouse
While we’re on the topic of chains, let’s go ahead and talk about Longhorn Steakhouse. I understand that local flavor is important and all, but it’s hard to ignore this one. I mean, it’s literally called a “steakhouse.” They’ve got to be doing something right, or they wouldn’t have made it this long. Head down to Longhorn for good eats.
Best Steaks in Montgomery – Itta Bena
Itta Bena is a Montgomery staple of fine dining. They’re located inside the Montgomery Wind Creek Casino, and provide a great stopover in between your jaunts into the gaming space. And what’s better than tearing into a delicious steak on one of these breaks? Hardly anything – especially if you’ve been on a roll. Don’t miss Itta Bena next time you’re visiting.
Best Steaks in Montgomery – TASTE
TASTE rides the line between upscale and fine dining in a way that few others can. They give customers a taste of the best delicacies around – and I mean it’s in the name, so how can you go wrong?

Best Steaks in Montgomery – The Cork and Cleaver
The Cork and Cleaver is a time-honored favorite among those of us here at Central Alabama Weekend. They’ve got a varied-but-not-too-full menu of delicious items to choose from, and all for great prices; we even made a video about them, which you can find right here. They offer one of the most delicious steaks you can find in Montgomery.
Honorable Mention – FIRE
I can’t officially put FIRE on this list because they are located in Wetumpka. But we’ve been so impressed with their food in the past that we can’t leave them to the wayside. That’s why they and their steaks find themselves in this honorable mention spot. If you’re heading into Wetumpka for a little gaming and get hungry, you know where to go.
