1. Doe’s Eat Place, Greenville
What originally started off as a grocery store has transformed into one of the state’s top restaurants, especially when it comes to steak. Doe’s specialty, the porterhouse, has won numerous awards including being named “No. 1 of the 100 Best Things to Eat in America” by Men’s Journal and landing spots on Bon Apetit Magazine’s “Best Picks for American Eats” list and the Travel Channel’s “Steak Paradise 3 Travel Guide.”
2. Dempsey’s Steak and Seafood, Kiln
In addition to amazing seafood and Cajun-inspired dishes, this Kiln favorite is known for serving up mouthwatering steaks, which range in size from 8 oz to 16 oz, and according to customer reviews, are always cooked to perfection (and your preference).
3. Como Steakhouse, Como
Attracting people from all over Mississippi and even Memphis, there’s bound to be a crowd at this popular restaurant, but the mouthwatering steak is so good, it’s definitely worth the wait. Consistently grilled to perfection, the premier choice steaks have even been referred to as “the best in the south.”
4. Shapley’s, Ridgeland
The ultimate in fine dining, it should come as no surprise that this Ridgeland eatery has earned a number of accolades, including tying for the title of “Best Steak” in a recent ranking by Mississippi Magazine. And once you’ve tried the steak, you’ll definitely agree with the magazine’s decision - the prime cuts of beef are cooked to perfection then drizzled with just the right amount of steak drippings and a choice of succulent toppings, such as lump crabmeat, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts.
5. Tico’s Steak House, Ridgeland
Tying for the title of “Best Steak” in Mississippi, Tico’s is a must-visit for any steak lover. The interior may be a bit laid back, but the restaurant is serious about its mouthwatering steaks, which include everything from filets to rib-eyes to porterhouses.
6. Gibbes Old Country Store, Learned
An old country store may not be the first place you’d think of when looking for a great steak, but that’s just because you haven’t been to this Learned treasure. Gibbes first opened its doors in 1892, serving as the local general store. Eventually, long family-style tables were added, creating a makeshift restaurant. Before long, Gibbes gained a reputation for its amazing food, which, of course, includes out-of-this-world steaks.
7. ROCA Restaurant and Bar, Vicksburg
Once a part of the Vicksburg Country Club, ROCA is known for its award-winning fare, and that, of course, includes delicious steaks.

8. Two Rivers Restaurant, Canton
This “upscale yet laid back” Canton restaurant boasts an extensive wine collection, succulent seafood, and delicious steaks, which didn’t happen by accident. According to the restaurant’s owner, Two Rivers uses only the highest quality meat, resulting in a filet mignon that has been named one of the best in the state by the website “Eat Jxn.”
9. Table 100, Flowood
Among the restaurant’s “Euro-American bistro fare” are some amazing steaks, particularly the filet mignon. Named one of the best in the state, Table 100’s Certified Black Angus Beef filets are lightly seasoned with coarse salt and pepper, topped with rosemary garlic infused olive oil, grilled, and then allowed to rest for several minutes before serving, resulting in a steak that is nothing short of perfection.
