Not even close to Luger's, but you get a huge steak.

At least the one in New Brunswick

I have been to Arthur's original location in Hoboken and it is reputed to be better than its offshoots by friends who have gone to their other locations. If you have a huge appetite and do not want to spend a ton of money, this is your place. the steaks come in two sizes, 24oz. and 48oz.

Ray, my partner goes there quite often with his girl. It's his top steakhouse pick.

lugers, IMO, is in a class by itself, with a close second, wolfgangs (which was started by the head waiter from lugers).

sounds like we need a road trip to judge steak houses.

Why do I feel like I'm going to get flamed mercilessly for this?

Not gonna get flamed by me, you're right.

IMO, Arthur's in Hoboken is a small step above Tad's Steaks in the city, or a Sizzler or Ponderosa for those familiar with those chains. Except the meat is better at Ponderosa or Sizzler.

I love steak, would gladly join in a roadtrip to any area steakhouse, but Arthur's does not belong in the same discussion thread as Lugers, Ben Benson, Morton, Sparks, Ruth Chris, Keen's, Smith & Wollensky, etc. I'll go there if we're deciding that we're essentially going to a place that happens to serve easily affordable steak, not "one of the greats"

Even Outback has better meat cuts than Arthur's.

As far as I can tell, the "allure" of Arthur's is that it *is* steak, and it is about the same price as going to any typical fast food on an ounce for ounce basis. You get to tell a date you're taking her to a "great" steakhouse. But unless your date is impressed by hot dog stands, your date won't be impressed by Arthur's.

The strong possibility exists that there is ongoing confusion. There are and have been two well known steak oriented places in Hoboken - Arthur's, which was cheap and easy to find on Washington, and Frankie & Johnnie's, which is expensive, good, and a bit more out of the way on Garden & 14th. Probably lots of discussions occured with someone saying "what's that great steakhouse in Hoboken?" meaning F&J, and somebody interjected the better known Arthur's resulting in "yeah, that's it". F&J and Arthur's are not in the same league.

To put my opinion in context: I've eaten at Arthur's in Hoboken no less than five times, spread out over about 5 years. I haven't gone in the last 6 months but don't think anything has changed. I've eaten at each of the above named steakhouses many times.

Price to quality to general appeal ratios, Keen's in midtown is probably the winner for those that categorically block any of the multi-location places.

Guys, count me in, if you'll have me, and add the River Palm in Mahwah (awesome cuts of aged meat, but it ain't cheap) and Houston's in the Riverside Square Mall (Hackensack) to the list.

Not a bad idea...ARFCOM get together?

+1 on the road trip.

There is an Arthur's about 2 miles from my home. I don't care for it at all.

Went to the Smith & Wollensky in Vegas last year. Best steak I've ever eaten.


Well if RBAD is 2 mile from the Morris Plains Arthurs and I'm 2 miles from the Morris Plains Arthurs does that mean I am RBAD?

The Willett House is good. Ruth's Chris Steak House at the Tarrytown Marriott is good too. Have you been to Frankie and Johnnie's in Rye? They opened up on Purchase Street about two years ago.
