Northwest Indiana Steakhouses and Steak Restaurants

Northwest Indiana steakhouses and Steak Restaurants
      Our Comprehensive Overview of fine Northwest Indiana steakhouses and Steak Restaurants presents the top spots to get sizzling sirloin and fiery fillets – rare, medium, well — to enhance your eating out experience. It’s very common today, to go to a restaurant and someone in your party wants to have a steak and they don’t offer any choices.
     Below we have compiled this list for the steak lovers in your family. All of these places are open every day, except where indicated. And all of them have a full menu and a full bar, except where indicated below.
    We did include the National Franchises, which you will recognize the name and are familiar with their presentation, but many of these are locally owned or family owned and operated with their own unique style of signature entrees and atmosphere and usually the owner is also the cook! We have also tried to indicate those with outdoor dining. 
     However, in compiling this list we found that not everyone serves prime rib, so if that is your goal, this post is essential. There are only 13 places that serve prime rib.  (to find them click here) Have fun and enjoy your meal!
