Steak Street's extensive dinner menu offers classic American steakhouse fare (hand-cut steaks and fresh seafood) that's infused with creative flavors. The house specialty, a bourbon filet, is a juicy meateor infused with gentle bourbon flavor and doled out in 6-ounce ($27) and 10-ounce ($34) portions. Grilled voodoo shrimp ($12 for appetizer) and voodoo lobster tail ($20 for appetizer, $18 for side) charm taste buds, while the lemon-butter-basted Old Savannah grilled chicken ($20) gambols gently across mouth meadows. Steak Street also supplies a lunch menu and a bistro menu from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Steak Street's dining room, awash in a tender yellow and complete with ivy hanging from the ceiling, indoor window panels, and wrought-iron balconies, offers diners a romantically Tuscan ambience. The exterior's sleek wood paneling, selective lighting, and classic brick embellishments accent a secluded outdoor patio for stargazing or cloud-clobbering. To further facilitate an enchanting evening, Steak Street offers live music most Friday and Saturday nights from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

- This is it folks. If you're a lover of steak and you're in high point this is you're wailing wall. – Bernard S., Yelp
- The steak was absolutely TO DIE FOR! Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned -- I couldn't have asked for more. We all shared an order of the "voodoo shrimp" which is a house specialty -- and rightfully so. – Carolina_Nikki, TripAdvisor
- The whole ambiance and setting in this restaurant is incredibly romantic for such an evening as ours. – catherine w., Insider Pages
Filled with wrought-iron railings, murals, and a stone fountain, Steak Street's decor exudes southern charm. One seating area evokes the spirit of New Orleans' French Quarter, whereas another section calls to mind the streets of Charleston.
A Trio of Culinary Concepts
- Consciously and Locally Sourced Ingredients: All of the burgers and hand-cut steaks have something in common—they are made of grassfed, humanely raised beef from Guilford County ranchers such as Summerfield Farms.
- From the Carolinas to the Crescent City: Chefs draw inspiration from the Carolinas all the way down to New Orleans, which leads to menus with house-smoked pork ribs and spicy jambalaya with shrimp and andouille sausage.
- A World's Worth of Wines: The wine list showcases American producers. However, the selection also includes bottles from around the world, earning a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.
Bar and Bistro
In addition to the main dining area, Steak Street includes separate bar and bistro sections. With a vintage fielder's glove and baseball bats hanging on the walls, the lounge-like bar channels Cooperstown, New York while guests sip from the southern beers on tap, including several from North Carolina breweries. The bistro features a private patio sheathed by wisteria vines and a retractable enclosure that offers indoor or outdoor seating depending on the weather and number of meteorites expected.
