Where do you go when you’re craving a steak dinner and you don’t feel like cooking? While our larger cities are full of decadent dining options, some of our small towns also have some hidden gems. These small town steakhouses are always worth the drive.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib, 614 S. 1st St., La Conner
Since quite a bit of our food is grown in the Skagit Valley, it makes sense that there are quite a few restaurants that use local fare. This spot is no exception -- and the steaks are wonderful.
2. Frasers Gourmet Hideaway, 1191 SE Dock St., Oak Harbor
Frasers Gourmet Hideaway opened in 2006, promptly becoming a hometown favorite. Chef Scott Fraser brings over two decades of culinary experience to the table, and it shows.
3. Mozart's Steakhouse, 829 Front St. Upstairs, Leavenworth
Leavenworth is more than bratwurst and schnitzel. This European steakhouse is a true hidden gem.
4. Huntington's Steakhouse, 95 Main St., Klickitat
Don't be fooled by its dive bar appearance. This place is known both by locals and visitors for serving some of the best steaks in the state.
5. Squeeze Inn, 611 1st Ave., Zillah
Although this eatery has been open since 1932, it served as an event and catering space from 2008 to 2014 before reopening to the public. The famous slow roasted prime rib dinner remains on the menu, and it's incredible.
6. Masselow's Steakhouse, 100 N Hayford Rd. #104, Airway Heights
Located inside the Northern Quest Resort & Casino, Masselow's offers a fine dining experience in a casual setting. All the beef is USDA Prime grade, Midwest raised and corn fed.
7. Michaels Seafood and Steakhouse, 117 B East 1st St., Port Angeles
Owner Michael has been in the hospitality industry since 1978, and he opened this charming eatery in 2001. Ingredients are sourced from local organic farmers, foragers and fishermen, and absolutely everything is delicious.
8. MaMa Vallone's Steak House & Inn, 302 W 1st St., Cle Elum
Located in a turn-of-the-century building, this European inspired steakhouse never disappoints. Come see why so many people drive from Ellensburg and Yakima to enjoy it.
9. Walla Walla Steak Company, 416 N 2nd Ave., Walla Walla
Located at the historic train depot, Walla Walla Steak Company is a new restaurant that has already become a local favorite. The steaks are prepared on a custom charcoal grill and wood-fire oven, and they're outstanding.
