If you eat meat, chances are good you 1) already frequent a favorite steak house, 2) indulge occasionally in a traditional meat-fest with proper sides and attentive service, or 3) would like to, but are waiting for a deal. Well, this one’s for you.


These three multi-course steak dinners are available on O‘ahu right now. They’re listed from the newest, just a few weeks old, to one that’s been around a while.



Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, Waikīkī

The deal: Taste of New York
Cost: $49.95
When: 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily at the bar
What you get: This classic chain from New York celebrates the Big Apple with a 12-ounce New York sirloin that’s delivered sizzling on the platter, sides of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, and house-made cheesecake. You’ll need a New York-size appetite to finish.


2301 Kalakaua Ave., (808) 922-3600, @wolfgangswaikiki



Basalt Waikīkī

The deal: $50 Prix Fixe
Cost: $50
When: 5 to 8:45 p.m. daily
What you get: DIY menu includes a first-course choice of lobster bisque or mixed green salad and dessert choice of liliko‘i crème brûlée or Grand Marnier chocolate mousse cake. Of the two entrée choices, the miso black cod is actually the more expensive option on the regular menu, but Basalt’s grilled 10-ounce strip loin with black pepper sauce, bleu cheese and Hasselback potatoes is highly worthy.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Waterfront Plaza

The deal: Prime Time Special
Cost: $54.95 to $69.95, depending on which entrée you choose
When: Monday to Thursday from 4:30 to 6 p.m., Friday to Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m.
What you get: While this early bird deal has been around for a while, it’s still a solid choice. For $54.95 you get your choice of a salad, stuffed chicken or an 8-ounce petite filet, a side of creamed spinach or a starch, and dessert of sorbet or a personal-size cheesecake. Note this special is only available at this location.
