Murray's Steakhouse is one of the oldest and most beloved restaurants in Minneapolis. The steakhouse was opened by husband and wife team, Art & Marie Murray in 1946 and has been a fine dining staple ever since. After all these years, the Silver Butter Knife Steak is still the calling card of Murray's.
The Silver Butter Knife Steak is a 28-ounce, hand-cut Sirloin for two that is perfectly seared and tenderized and then finished in a special broiler that renders it so succulent and tender that you can cut it using just a fork. Murray's Steakhouse is not a one-trick pony though, the menu is one classic steakhouse dish after another. Murray's is one of the few places in Minneapolis where you can get a classic chateaubriand. Chateaubriand is a vintage French recipe where the center of the tenderloin is roasted and then carved tableside and served with a red wine sauce. Other local favorites include a decadent cubed sirloin in aged cheese sauce as well as the most popular item on the lunch menu, Murray's original steak sandwich made with sirloin, provolone, and bacon. While the proteins tend to get all the attention at Murray's the sides are just as delicious. Every table gets a healthy serving of crunchy Garlic Bread that is slathered in herb butter and the au gratin potatoes with cheese and sour cream are the perfect complement to the classic steaks on the menu.
Minneapolis is in the middle of a thriving and diverse food renaissance. Even with all of the new restaurants popping up around the city, Murray's Steakhouse has not lost any of its lusters. It is still one of the best places to grab a bite in the city.
