The reader survey results for “Best Steak in Portland” doesn’t have any big surprises except for Ringside’s second place performance. It shows what giving more attention and a new face to a restaurant can do:

Laurelhurst, really? I tried them three times but they could never get the temperature right, twice with steaks and once with a pork chop.
I’ve tried 6 different Laurelhurst meat dishes and they got the temp right every time, so at least they are batting .667 when you factor in both of our anecdotal evidence.

I find that one man’s medium is often times another man’s medium rare. It’s all kinda subjective.

The nice thing about The Ringside is that the prices are excellent too!
How can it be any other restaurant other than the Ringside? Best onion rings and steaks in town. Cooked perfectly EVERY TIME! Their wedge salad “yes, give me the ol’ wedgie”, hamburger, and special in-house salad dressing can’t be beat. Service is professionally trained and all the waiters have many, many years of experience. They are THE BEST in town!
Have you tried any other restaurants since 1976? There’s a new place called pf chang’s that doesn’t necessarily have steak but has simply the best chinese food outside of china.
Better than Panda Express?
