10 Erté
Hints of Art Deco style can be found in Erté's playful decor, which features seat covers fashioned from black button-down shirts, leopard-print patterns, and prints of the namesake artist's elegant, linear works. The wallet-pleasing steakhouse not only serves affordable cuts of meat, but it also offers superb fresh seafood. Prime sirloin and a petite filet are highlights of the beef selection, while halibut, trout, and scallops are representative of the seafood options. Even with stiff steakhouse competition nearby, Erté's lighthearted atmosphere and varied menu set it apart. (612-623-4211)

9 Wildfire
Evoking the ambiance of a 1940s-era steakhouse, this branch of the small Midwestern chain is a hit with locals thanks to hearty portions of meat and potatoes — of course, a hip martini bar doesn't hurt either. Baked goat cheese and crab-crusted stuffed shrimp are tempting starters, but save room for the main course — salads, sandwiches, steaks, fish, seafood, chicken, and barbecue are all appetizing. For a change of pace, try a blue cheese-crusted filet or honey mustard-glazed St. Louis ribs. (952-914-9100)

8 J.D. Hoyt's
Attracting patrons of all ages, this well-appointed addition to the Warehouse District earns its popularity with juicy cuts of meat, knowledgeable servers, and the winning combination of a quiet dining area and a lively bar. Retro relish trays and garlic cheese bread are delicious preludes to a tenderloin filet, T-bone, New York strip, or prime rib prepared to your specifications. A 24-oz. Cajun double pork chop is also a serious contender. Peach cobbler, apple crisp, and strawberry shortcake are simple yet sinfully good dessert choices. NB Sunday brunch is served family-style.

7 Ruth's Chris Steak House
Elegant Ruth's Chris sits in the heart of Minneapolis and seduces diners with incredibly tender steaks, including huge slabs of beef prepared with butter for mouthwatering richness. Among the more popular cuts are a porterhouse for two, a cowboy rib-eye, and a petite filet served with New Orleans-style shrimp. Side dishes include fried onions, lyonnaise potatoes, and sautéed mushrooms. (612-672-9000, 888-722-4398)

6 Kincaid's
Thanks to its location in an office building, Kincaid's attracts a business crowd who relishes its well-executed, straightforward cuisine. Kincaid's specializes in Nebraska corn-fed beef, chops, fresh seafood, and pastas, and it's known for its mesquite grilling and homemade breads. The large bar is an added attraction, especially when the workday is over. Sunday brunch and incredible service are added draws, as is outdoor dining when the weather's warm. Reservations recommended. (952-921-2255)

5 Murray's
A celebration of glitzy, 1940s-era establishments, this swank, curtained restaurant is family-owned and -operated. Specialties include hickory-smoked shrimp and heavenly Silver Butter Knife Steak, while fan favorites include bacon-wrapped filet mignon with mushrooms and a salad made with thin-sliced beef, baby greens, mushrooms, walnuts, and capers. Save room for strawberry pie or devil's food cake. (612-339-0909)

4 The Capital Grille
The Capital Grille, part of a national chain, is one of Minneapolis's most popular steakhouses. If you're looking to impress a potential client, this place delivers. The interior sports lots of mahogany, dark green hues, welcome privacy, and a predominantly masculine decor. The famous porterhouse is 24 ounces of excellent, dry-aged beef that will leave you swooning. For dessert, why not try the mouthwatering flourless chocolate cake? Reservations are suggested. (612-692-9000)

3 Gianni's Steakhouse
Gianni's atmosphere is sophisticated for a traditional steakhouse, but you should feel no need to dress up. Getting lots of attention is the Delmonico rib-eye, which is actually big enough for two. Diners who don't have a taste for steak can indulge in Gianni's pork, chicken, and seafood dishes. Side orders, too, are well-portioned, and Gianni's cheese-stuffed hash browns are a \"must-try.\" On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday a magician performs. (952-404-1100)

2 Bloomington ChopHouse
Perfectly charred and beautifully presented, the Bloomington ChopHouse's succulent steaks and chops more than make up for its location outside of Minneapolis proper. The muted green walls and and red-orange booths combine with lively clientele to produce an invigorating dining experience. (952-830-5200, 952-830-5272)

1 Manny's Steakhouse
This appealing steakhouse, reminiscent of an old-fashioned men's club, serves USDA-certified, dry-aged beef and does so in portions that are certain to demand a doggie bag. The menu changes daily but often features a mouth-watering porterhouse or New York strip, along with lemon-pepper chicken, shrimp, salmon, tuna, veal, lamb, and pork chops. The typical crowd dresses in everything from rhinestones to blue jeans. (612-339-9900)
