Why does it seem traditional to eat steak on Valentine’s Day? There can be several reasons. Despite the current high price of eggs, premium cuts of beef are generally more expensive than, for example, chicken and other groceries. Eating a juicy steak may seem like more of a treat than other proteins. Thus, the perceived value lends to a sense of opulence, a splurge, for a romantic Valentine’s dinner.
So, as Valentine’s Day approaches, nothing is better for some couples than a nicely marbled seared steak surrounded by as many goodies as possible. Luckily, many popular steakhouse chains offer meal-for-two deals that combine the best steaks with the decadent sides everyone loves.
Ruth’s Chris, Morton’s and other popular steakhouses offer several places to eat great steaks with savory and sweet sides. Several offer deals for couples dining all week. You can’t help but love it! Here are the best deals for two at your favorite steakhouse chains.
Morton’s is a familiar place to most steak connoisseurs, known for its premium USDA Prime wet-aged steak and impressive fresh seafood. The special Valentine’s Day menu is made to impress and is full of treats to celebrate the night.
This 3-course meal is for lovers, at least for the hungry. It starts with the Love in Bloom cocktail, a rosy-hued blend of Tito vodka, Cointreau, hibiscus and Prosecco. The steak entrée is a Chateaubriand cut with an extra for lobster tail or crab cakes, but there are plenty of choices for soup, salads, sides and dessert.
Morton’s is known for its decadent meal-ending sweets, like the legendary sundae for two, an old-fashioned concoction of chocolate brownie, vanilla ice cream, caramel and fresh whipped cream.
From February 10 to 14, $179 for two.
This restaurant started as a bet. Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to invest in a 60-seat restaurant called the Chris Steak House in 1968. She dreamed of a restaurant named after her and now owns 150 Ruth’s Chris Steak House, the culmination of her goals. Since dreams come true at this must-visit steakhouse, it’s a great place to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
The special Valentine’s Chateaubriand is made with 22 ounces of hand-carved filet mignon, enhanced with a rich cognac sauce. The rest of the prix fixe choices are just as delicious. With a choice of two salads or soup and salad, garlic mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and chocolate cake, you won’t leave this romantic meal hungry. With wine, cocktail and champagne pairings, every part of the meal is curated to be an over-the-top experience, just like Valentine’s Day should be.
February 10-19, $160 for two.
The atmosphere is what makes Sullivan’s a perfect nightspot. Always full of jazz or swing music and a vibrant, friendly staff, each location makes the most of its area by adding a bit of community flair.
Sullivan’s menu offers a bit more choice for the main course, especially if your partner doesn’t like steak. With boneless and boneless cuts of beef, herb brick chicken, and seasonal fish, there’s something for everyone. The fixed price also gives diners the option to choose several upgrades for their steak, such as compound butters, crab and shrimp choices, and different sauces. Options span many sides and salad choices, as well as a la carte specialties to add to the meal. Finish with homemade key lime pie or New York cheesecake.

Perry’s began as a family-run butcher in Houston in the 1970s, eventually becoming the steakhouse chain less than twenty years later. The chain stays true to those roots with table carving of its best USDA steaks. The goal is for every guest to feel included and special at every meal.
For Valentine’s Day, try the Candlelight Filet Mignon Roast for Two topped with Béarnaise, Truffle Merlot or Roasted Peppercorn Sauce. Better yet, add two steamed lobster tails topped with a special lobster butter melt. This feast for the senses includes two salads, two sides and half a dozen chocolate covered strawberry kisses. I think the word is “love”. If you prefer Valentine’s Day in pajamas and save a few bucks, you can get the same takeout meal for $40 less.
