Moving into the Top Five Best Raleigh NC Steakhouses As Rated by… well, You!
Our initial three Best Raleigh NC Steakhouses from the first post are staples of the Raleigh food community. All three have a history of being independently operated and have roots right in the “Capital City.” While only one of the three fantastic restaurants we look at in this post is “Raleigh-born,” we think you’ll agree that the other two are likewise very popular and revered within the local community
Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse
8551 Brier Creek Parkway
Well, this ends any dramatics as to which of the next three of our Best Raleigh NC Steakhouses was Raleigh born and bred. Known as “the Triangle’s Only Authentic Brazilian Steakhouse, Brasa has become a local favorite known for its delicious menu top to bottom. Likewise, while technically a “steakhouse,” their unique offerings somewhat set this entrant apart from the pack.
In explaining those differences, we need to look no further than the official Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse website. Here it explains of this member of our Best Raleigh NC Steakhouses list the following. “Brazil is known for its tradition of handsome gauchos riding the vast pampas herding beef cattle.” They go on to tell of the unique methods of the traditional Brazilian steakhouse. “The churrascarias, or steakhouses, feature rodízio service. This is a unique style featuring roasted meats served by passadores (meat servers).” They finish their explanation saying as follows. “The passadores visit the table with skewers of various kinds of meat. These meats include beef, pork, filet mignon, lamb, chicken, sausage, and even pineapple.
All that being said, we once again turn to our voice of reason in naming the Best Raleigh NC Steakhouses. That voice of course is you, the public. One thrilled visitor to Brasa had the following kind words to say under their title of “Fantastic!” This female diner was visiting the restaurant with friends and had the following compliments to say.
“This was such a great night for us,” she begins. “From start to finish, our experience was fantastic. The waitstaff made this a very personable experience.” Speaking to the food itself, she went on. “The meat was just incredible, and it was a great opportunity to try new things. There really is not enough adjectives to describe how great of a time we had.”

Now, we realize that there are Sullivan’s Steakhouse restaurants in 12 other locations across the U.S. That being said, first, that is not very many for the entire country. Second, we should see that as a blessing, because since day one of opening its Raleigh location it has been a huge hit. Oh, what really matters to make our Best Raleigh NC Steakhouses, they certainly have covered. An amazing steak.
Just as we said regarding Brasa above, Sullivan’s is truly unique from all others on our Best Raleigh BNC Steakhouses listing. For one, they offer private dining options. Whether for a party, business meeting, or just an extremely large group, this is a great feature. Rooms with dining table seating for anywhere from 25-80 are available and many of the reviews we read gushed over the party or gathering they had using one of these areas.
There’s another popular feature at Sullivan’s, leading to it placing fourth among the Best Raleigh NC Steakhouses. This is the “Sure Thing” feature on their menu. This is a fixed price menu, giving the customer an amazing experience and meal for a very reasonable price that they are aware of even prior to ordering. Likewise, the “Sullivan’s Marketplace” has been a hit since opening. This allows a customer to buy hand-cut premium steaks to bring home and experience Sullivan’s at their own kitchen table.
All these things we are sure have been enough to lure you over for a delicious steak at Sullivan’s. However, we again turn to the words of an experienced Sullivan’s diner to conclude. They start referring to the experience as follows. “Excellent service and outstanding ingredients combined with cooking perfection.” The happy customer goes on. “The service we received tonight was simply outstanding in every way, shape, and form from the moment we entered. Four of us ordered three different types of steaks cooked to four different specifications. One of us ordered a well-done filet mignon. It is not a simple task to cook a well-done filet mignon that is juicy on the inside and soft as butter. Each steak was cooked perfectly. “
In conclusion this reviewer adds the comment below. “For various reasons, some people go to a restaurant for a steak, and they pay for it. If you want to do that, then I think that you’re going to be pleased with the food and service at this location.
