A word from Bryant & Cooper Steakhouse
Bryant & Cooper opened in 1986 with big ambitions: to bring the top tier New York City "steak house experience" to Long Island. Not only would the very finest quality, hand picked prime aged steaks be served, but an ambiance would be created that makes everyone feel like they are part of a special private club. For membership...just make a reservation.

Founded by the three Poll brothers with two generations of restaurant ownership experience, Gillis, Dean and George learned at an early age that the secret of a great restaurant was to start with serving the very best.

That is why the steaks, chops and jumbo lobsters are selected on a daily basis, and only the freshest side dishes find their way to a plate served at Bryant & Cooper.

Over the years Bryant & Cooper has received superlative reviews for its entire menu. The New York Times has proclaimed it the "best steak house on Long Island."

  • $74 for lamb chops, really?

    I've been to expensive restaurants before but this not the city. Service was great I must admit, food was tasty but I got sticker shock when the bill came for the lamb chops that were not priced on the menu (shame on me, I should have asked before ordering). Seems like a neighborhood favorite with a regular clientele, a bit crowded but everyone seemed to be having a good time. For the price I expected a better experience.

    Everything on the menu is delicious and is always consistent. Best lobster cocktail for your dollar hands down better than anywhere else in America. Amazing mouthwatering side dishes such as cream of spinach and home fries and fried zucchini. And you can never go twin with either their porterhouse or their Cajun ribeye!

    If you like beef, and plenty of it, this place is for you. Excellent Martinis made to order. The rib steak was awesome and huge. My wife loved her sirloin. Pricey, in line with other high-end steakhouses, but great for special occasions.

    Although I know that Bryant and Cooper is great for dinner, I often avoid it because it is so crowded and noisy for dinner. this was the first time I ever went for lunch, and it was a great idea. Their 10 ounce filet mignon lunch was a great choice. If you go for a late lunch, you probably won't want much, if anything for dinner. Unlike steakhouse dinners, where everything is ordered a la carte, the lunch comes with a salad, creamed spinach, and lyonnaise potatoes, all for less than the cost of the filet for dinner.

    Portions got a lot smaller on most things we ordered especially on salad & crabmeat cocktail from last time we had been there. New York Prime was very thin, not quite the same quality however prices did not get smaller. We actually sent the steak back.

    Bryant and Cooper is definitely an upscale experience. The service is impeccable, and everything about it evokes classic steakhouse. The food is delicious, the selection is great, and I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone seeking a high-class restaurant. The attention alone from the staff is worth it. You don't even have to ask for something, they are so on top of it! Thank you B&C!

    We have visited this restaurant many times over the years but on this evening we had an horrendous experience. It was a Wednesday night and we were seated 25 minutes after our reservation. We ordered drinks and I was brought the wrong cocktail. I know I ordered a branded vodka and was given an inferior quality. The headache I had the following morning was a confirmation of this fact. Neither waiter or anybody in the restaurant was able to help us with a wine selection. One waiter was very apologetic and it appeared as though the other did not care. The food was fair but the noise level was beyond that of the cheers expressed at my the audience at the Super Bowl. Happy birthday to me :-(

    As usual everything was going perfect, except for my filet mignon. We were still eating our salads when the steaks were served. We told them we needed 5 more minutes. 2 minutes after the food was served, they asked if everything was ok. I hadn't gotten to the meat yet so we said it was. After 2 slices it turned out not to be medium rare. It was extremely charred and the inside was very dry with no pink in the middle. Unfortunately they never came back to ask otherwise I would have returned it. As always, the place it was packed and very busy. Note to self, check meat immediately otherwise it may just be too late. I ended up taking the charred steak to my dog who seemed to enjoy it very much.

    Big fan of all the Pohl restaurants and come here often. First time we had an issue with a meal. The order had to be sent back twice, and the diner was reluctant to do so, however the waiter noticed the issue. The service/staff were very kind and attentive. My dish, which i order the same thing every time (veal francese) was very chewy. A bit of a disappointing evening, but we will be back.

    Been here several times, it is always consistant-its delicious experience everytime. But, it is stupid loud in there. Very difficult to converse with people at your own table-its that loud. After 15 minutes or so you adjust or maybe its the cocktail that takes off the edge of a screaming room. I love it here though. One of my favorites.

    Party of 6, we had both sizes of the filet mignon, the prime rib, ribeye, and chicken. All delicious, really outstanding. But I must also mention the incredible staff: perfect combo of professional and fun, solicitous, made great recommendations, and made our 89 yr old dad feel like a king. Can't wait to go back. Yum!

    If you're looking for a great steak this is the place to go! But if you want something romantic, this is definitely not it. It is very loud and I could barely make out what my boyfriend was saying and it was just the 2 of us at the table. It is pricy so be prepared for the check.

    Most of the reviews are on spot for this. Went there for my boyfriend's birthday and the food is good, not amazing but good. We got the porterhouse for 2 as an entree, it didn't melt in my mouth. The crab cakes for an appetizer and a little better. We had the creme brulee and apple strudel for dessert, both were average. The apple could have been baked longer. Many people around us complained about the seating arrangements because it was tight. Tables are inches apart. This didn't really bother us as much. The service was fast and friendly. We were seated right away after arriving at 730 for our reservation at 8. Overall, it is a bit pricey for the food but all steak houses are.

Our meal was totally fabulous and the service was just as nice. it never seems to amaze me at how busy this place is. but the moment we dine there we remember why it's always so busy. the food is awesome. the environment is lively yet subdued, and the people are wonderful... it's a great place to go.

    If you want a calm, relaxing dinner - do not go here. The service is rushed - food is rushed - coffee too, because they have to get ready for the next table. It is extremely loud and close tables do not help. You are on top of the next table and almost feel that you are dining with them.

    First time diners for a special birthday celebration. Exterior is unimpressive and small from the street and parking lot. Interior offered us a gracious and friendly greeting and wait staff well versed with a long list of specials. We sampled the specials from fish to steaks, soups and sides. The Cajun Ribeye was huge and tasty exuding great flavor and cooked to order. Filets were enjoyed though more basic in taste. The Snapper plate received a great review. The sides were bountiful though basic with the main entree being the focus. Staff were attentive and portions plentiful. While prices are moderate plus we believe the value is there compared to Peter Luger's and other local steak houses. A place we will likely visit again.
