Scottsdale you’re all but guaranteed to find a Juicy, Super Tender Steak to sink your teeth into

While Arizonans don’t tend to get as caught up in long dry aging, the products surrounding the steak are likely to be as delicious as you’d find in other fine restaurants, from the produce and desserts all the way down the wine selections. Like any other city, steakhouses are always going to be the go-to option for an elevated dining experience that’ll please a crowd, even nonmeat-eaters. It’s not hard to sit down in front of a tasty steak in this town. Upscale options abound, with prices that quickly reach into the triple digits once you tack on a side of asparagus and that all-important glass of red wine. So what’s a hungry carnivore without big bucks to do when the red meat cravings arrive in full swing?

While the city isn’t as renowned as New York and Chicago, Scottsdale has its fair share of great steakhouses. While steak and Scottsdale may not go together like the city’s more celebrated health-conscious restaurants, that doesn’t mean there’s a lack of steakhouses for the city’s carnivores. The beauty of the Scottsdale dining scene is that it offers a variety of food choices, which includes the options of steak lovers as well.

Scottsdale is home to a multitude of national chains like Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Morton’s, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, along with local chains like Mastro’s and local favorites like Don & Charlie’s. What links these different restaurants together is one common goal: to have the best cut of meat possible. Many of these places succeed and hence, are on our list of the best steakhouses in Scottsdale.

Here now, the 17 essential Scottsdale steakhouses, presented in no particular order.
