Peter Luger Steak House

255 Northern Blvd
Great Neck, NY 11021

Won’t return.

Cash only, NO credit card.

I’ve been to this location a few times but was never impressed with their service. No impressed today, again.

Calling on a Thursday, asking for 1:30 but was given 1:45. Ok, they might not have enough bodies. It’s more than half empty when we got there. But have to wait till our third friend arrived before we were seated.

Then being ignored for a good 10 miniutes. I have to raise my hand to a couple of staff who were fussing with the empty table next to us, to possibly getting us menus and drinks, perhaps?

Cold breads – would be nice if they’re warm. Bathroom although clean but feels like McDonald’s or Starbucks’.

We only have rib steak, lamb chop which is a better choice than the steak; asked for mdium rare but came medium. The German potato (the founder was a German immigrant) and broccoli are ok.

A staff said it’s their tradition to accept cash. And the bill is hand written which I find quint and cute. And the chocolate, I used my calculator as not to be mistaken – they’re established in 1887, pile on 125 years that would mean 2012 – holly Molly, a well aged sweet.

Now, what do they do with all that cash?? Seriously. A sitting duck … ?


The bar is facing the enterance. Low ceiling, small, uninviting.
