Awards - Best Steak House in America

Thank you Knoxville for voting Ye Olde Steakhouse as the "Best Steaks" winner in "Who Rocks In Knox 2019"! We are excited to be your favorite destination for steaks. There were more than 121,000 votes and you can see winners in dozens of categories, from best bakery to best mortgage company and of course, best steaks, all of which can be found here.

In 2014, Ye Olde Steakhouse was recommended as one of the top "10 Classic Steakhouses to Visit Soon" on Yahoo! Travel. Yahoo Travel sought out America's famed institutions of dry aging and in-house butchering. As one of these famed steakhouses, Ye Olde Steakhouse serves cuts with appeal as only achieved by the open flame grill. The standout cut: The filet mignon. It’s your choice of 6 or 8 ounces. We insist on Iowa grain-fed beef sourced from a local purveyor for every cut.

Ye Olde Steak House was voted the best restaurant for 21 years straight by the Knoxville Metropulse. Allow us to quote MP’s former Gourmet Nose on the subject of Ye Olde Steakhouse’s beefy brilliance: “Generally using grain-fed choice-grade beef rather than the more fatty prime, the kitchen turns out consistently tender and astonishingly flavorsome cuts with effortless sangfroid. One highlight is the 20 oz. porterhouse. The meat proves sinuous yet delicate and has the comforting taste of luxury. The rib-eye is deliciously juicy, hearty without being heavy, with touches of marbling that lend the meat a rousing, indulgent piquancy.” Sure, he wrote that in 2008, but it’s still all true—just as it’s been for 43 years. Sometimes, consistency really is a virtue. (R.K.) Courtesy of Knoxville Metropulse - May 12, 2011
