In November 2014 GlasgowLiving brought you the Top Five Steak Restaurants in Glasgow. After much pressure and anticipation from the public, we’ve delivered the sequel. Imaginatively titled. “Top Steak Restaurants in Glasgow Pt 2”.

As any lover of movies will be aware, in the sequel, inevitably the “steaks” are raised and usually as the storyline expands, there will be drama, shocks and almost always, more to the narrative than “meats” the eye.

Now let’s stop with these terrible bovine inspired puns and get on with the main “cattle”yst for this article. (Sorry.)

The Top 8 Steak Restaurants in Glasgow…

8. The Market Kitchen, West Nile Street


A relative newcomer to our list and to Glasgow, The Market Kitchen prides itself on the quality of product, being able to trace back their cattle breeds 200 years, whilst also having knowledge of the farms the free range cows were born and raised on.

Promising a 35-40 day aged cut of meat, The Market Kitchen promises that only the freshest slice of succulent meat will reach your plate.

7. Tiffney’s Steakhouse, West End


Another newcomer and relatively unknown, this little West End gem, has snuck onto our list for the top steaks in Glasgow. 35 day aged meat, the restaurant named after owner Raymond Walter’s great-grandfather offers a drop and dine service for all customers in the G11 and G3 postcodes. Literally picking you up before your reservation and dropping you off after your meal.

6. Alston Bar & Beef, Gordon St


Second appearance for Alston and another high showing for the restaurant in the village that never was.

Situated on top of Grahamston, a village demolished 100 years ago to make way for the creation of Glasgow Central Station. The dramatic settings are only equalled by the quality of the steak on offer, with a wide variety of menus to choose from, Alston offers high end and more expensive cuisine alongside the more modest of menus.

Everyone can experience dining in the most extravagant of Glasgow restaurants. N.B Cocktails are heavily gin based.

5. Hutchesons Bar & Brasserie, Ingram Street


One of, if not the, most glamourous of eating establishments in the fair city of Glasgow, Hutcheson’s prides itself on quality dining and dining in quality. Hutcheson’s was voted Best New Restaurant in the Scottish Variety Awards and when sitting in its ceremonious surroundings is similar to how a meal in Downton Abbey would seem. The Grade A listed building has been converted into a three floor restaurant of the utmost elegance. Expect to pay a pretty penny though

4. Meat Bar, West Regent Street

Although much more than simply a steak joint, Meat on Glasgow’s West Regent Street offers 40 day aged MacDuff beef from the Glens of Scotland. With emphasis on steak cuts of the day and chef specials, Meat in West Regent Street will provide you with one of the finest cuts of meat in the city. (Not to mention a funky fantastic, selection of drinks and cocktails.)

Prices are also on the friendly side, so Meat could be the beginnings of your night rather than the entirety of it.

3. Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, Waterloo St


Another newcomer on our list but quickly gaining a reputation in Glasgow for quality dining at pretty reasonable prices, The Ingot Hotel based Steakhouse is specifically tailored to the tastes of the original enfant’ terrible of the cheffing industry Marco Pierre White. A restaurant with the quality guarantee of a 3 star Michelin Award winning chef.

2. The Grill at the Square, Royal Exchange Square

Sitting looking onto Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square, The Grill at the Square promises dining in the heart of Glasgow’s modern day Renaissance. Boasting the luxury cuisine of a private members club without the extortionate fee and obligation of being an actual member. Grill at the Square is fine dining in Glasgow at its best.

1. Butchershop Bar and Grill, Sauchiehall St

Glasgow’s best steak bar, and still undeniably reigning number 1. Directly facing Kelvingrove museum, Butchershop Bar and Grill, offers the finest selection of steaks in Glasgow. The Butchershop menu has a diagram of a cow as its front cover on the menu. This cover allows the waiters and waitresses to show you exactly where on the cattle your chosen steak has being cut from.

Although at times Butchershop Bar and Grill can be slightly expensive, the quality you experience and the expertise provided by all levels of staff will leave you feeling as if you’ve received value for money, each bite tasting more succulent than the last.
