Oh and Metropolitan is a wonderful place to eat as well in downtown Springs and the restaurant on the north side by the same owner of Walters Bistro called International Plate is wonderful.

Sorry for so many posts, I remember the restaurants so I post them lol

I have to say this here, I think having the Boradmore's Penrose room in Southern Colorado is such a gem! They are the states ONLY 5 diamond restaurant, not Denver or Aspen or Vail can top that! I tell everyone I know about that place! Even the Pueblo Chieftain, who rarely talks about Colorado Springs in a good light, has given them many front page stories!

For Senior Prom, we took our dates to the Antler's Hotel to dine. I had the Pheasant, but I'm sure a decent steak could be had as well. So I guess it's Radisson's Antler's hotel or something like that now. How's the food/service/price of a room these days compared to the /Radisson version?

Speaking of Aspen, how's yours? Oh, I mean, I ate at Little Nells. Not too shabby. And the Flying Dog had a mean French onion soup, but back to steak...

The Famous ought to be your top choice, with Peppertree close behind. Then Steaksmith, and maybe the Stagecoach. Stagecoach used to be better under previous owners (the bison was great), but I hear it isn't up to the old standards. MacKenzies is good, but I think they're overpriced.

I'll admit, though, that my advice here might not be the greatest. I rarely get steak out. If I want a good steak, I'll buy a top quality cut of meat, and cook it myself on the grill. That way, I always get it just the way I want it. If I'm gonna pay for somebody to prepare a meal for me, I want them to do something I can't do just as well myself.

Please read this seriously, because I'm completely serious, but The Pepper Tree was the single greatest meal of my entire life.

I think it may be impossible to be more expensive than the Famous!

I agree, Steaksmith, Mackensie's (sp?) and Saltgrass up in Chapel hills are the best, and not too expensive. I Love the Saltgrass too for their bar. Can't beat the happy hour specials.
