I can’t go a season without visiting at least one of my favourite steak houses in Victoria!
Julia Child said that the only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook! I think she was on to something… don’t you?
Here are my top picks for the best steak houses in Victoria:
The Keg Steakhouse offer 2 locations in Greater Victoria; Saanich and Downtown Victoria with amazing seating arrangements and great vibes. It is an absolutely fantastic steak house..with steaks always cooked perfectly and your choose of potato (I always go for the double baked). This place is always busy so you know the food is great. They are the best at singing happy birthday and probably the best of all is you always leave with a full belly and a smile on your face!
Nautical Nellies is know for amazing flavourful steak and brilliant seafood; menu was full of tasty options and an expansive wine list. It simple is a wonderful place with a warm atmosphere where you’ll experience a very pleasant, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Nautical Nellies also offers great daily Happy Hour specials for those more on a budget. This location offers a great view of the harbour with a patio seating.
Fireside Gill located in the heart of Saanich is a great restaurant with excellent service known for it’s beef short ribs. The ambience is fantastic with a huge open dining room; yet it still feels cozy and intimate with a lovely heritage home feel. The building is a gorgeous heritage Tudor building. The menu is varied and delicious and there is an extensive wine list sure to please anyone. It is a child friendly restaurant with booster seats, a kids menu and crayons. Fireside Grill has the ability to accommodate large groups and also offers an amazing buffet style brunch. The patio in summer and fireplaces in winter make it appealing and you can always count on the good food.
