Steak, it's what's for dinner. And 10 Best is guiding those craving a great steak to the best on Oahu. From casual to formal, and from traditional to a steak with a Pacific twist, Honolulu has no shortage of awesome steakhouses. Those looking to mix it up can deviate from the norm with a calamari steak, or  for something more traditional, try a tried and true ol' steak and potatoes. Either way, hungry travelers won't go hungry in Honolulu. Steakhouses are always an ideal place for a big group get together, and Honolulu also offers smaller steakhouses that are perfect for an intimate date or celebration.
