The Capital Grille in Seattle, one of a high-end national chain, stands out for its charming setting inside the landmark Beaux Arts Cobb Building downtown. Chandeliers, plush seating, and warm mahogany inside complement the historic venue, as does a menu that sticks to steakhouse classics prepared with care. Steaks are dry-aged in house for over 18 days and carved by an in-house butcher. The signature appetizer is pan-fried calamari with hot cherry peppers, and popular side dishes include Vidalia onion rings and lobster mac and cheese.

An old-school downtown institution, The Metropolitan Grill claims a top spot on virtually every list of the best steakhouses in Seattle. Its drinks program is acclaimed too, with the signature smoky Met martini winning Seattle's Annual Martini Classic and the wine list claiming Wine Spectator's Grand Award. Diners entering the restaurant, housed in the circa-1903 Marion Building, see a glass display case of available beef cuts, among them corn-fed, dry-aged USDA prime beef from a Washington ranch and American wagyu from Idaho. The mashed potato side dish is a firm favorite of critics and regulars, as is bananas Foster flambeed tableside for dessert.

The Grill From Ipanema, a Brazilian steakhouse in Belltown, offers a la carte entrees for lunch and dinner, but the real crowd-pleaser is the all-you-can eat rodizio option. Costumed passadores parade by the tables, stopping to dramatically carve custom cuts of steaks, chicken, pork, fish, and vegetables from sword-like skewers. Slow-roasted over a traditional charcoal rotisserie, the meat options are juicy and eminently tempting. For dessert there's whole, grilled, cinnamon-dusted pineapple. The rodizio dinner also comes with unlimited access to the array of cold options at the Mesa de Frios. Friday and Saturday night diners enjoy live Brazilian music.

Daniel's Broiler is a popular local chain comprised of four steakhouses and a bakery. All boast great views, but those from the original (since 1980) Leschi location are hard to beat. The restaurant occupies a converted 1919 boathouse on a historic marina on Lake Washington, affording diners a stunning panorama of the Cascades and Mount Rainier from the main dining room. The award-winning menu and wine list compete admirably for patrons' attention, especially the prime, corn-fed steaks broiled at 1800 degrees, along with decadent sides like truffle fries and lobster mashed potatoes with bacon. Regulars know to come for happy hour appetizers as well as special-occasion dinners.

Joule, in Wallingford, opened its doors in 2007, specializing in creative, boldly flavorful Korean-Pacific Northwest fusion fare. In 2013, Joule revamped as a cheerfully decorated steakhouse, and soon after Bon Appétit called it one of the best new restaurants in America. Four steaks feature on the dinner menu, all with Asian flavors such as the grilled kimchi with the kalbi-style short rib steak and the spicy peanut oil over grass-fed rib eye and beef belly. The menu also features a variety of tempting rice, noodle, and vegetable dishes that encourage mixing, matching, and sharing. Steak-seekers are also pleased to find both a steak salad and a steak dinner with charred vegetables and anchovy toast on the happy hour menu.

Critics and regulars praise JaK's Grill for its reasonable prices and friendly, unpretentious vibe, but what really keeps them coming back is the food. The stars of the menu are serious contenders for the best steak in Washington, cut from corn-fed Nebraska beef and aged in house for over 28 days. Dinnertime patrons should aim to come hungry — all steaks come as full meals with a salad course, vegetables, warm sourdough bread, and a choice of potato (baked, mashed, fries, or potato pancakes). A few lighter options are available, but the lunch, dinner, and brunch menus all lean to the side of decadence.
