Mr. B’s Steakhouse

This legacy steakhouse is the longtime go-to restaurant for fine dining and celebrations such as anniversaries, birthdays and proposals. Mr. B’s is an iconic name in Rogers and is located in an old house converted into a restaurant. Their menu is built to impress; think shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, baked potatoes, creamed spinach, stuffed mushrooms, walleye, salmon, pecan pie and more. Steaks are fresh, aged and hand-cut daily then rubbed with Mr. B’s special seasoning blend and seared and finished on a flat-top grill.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House

This well-known restaurant got its start 50 years ago in New Orleans and has locations throughout the country. It’s known for its signature 500-degree sizzling plates that stay warm through the very last bite, an award-winning wine list and steaks that are prime or choice cuts of corn-fed Midwestern beef.

Theo’s

This swanky restaurant and wine bar with lounge seats and a menu of creative steakhouse fare blends the freshness of coastal cuisine with the comfort of Southern cooking and hospitality for simple yet elegant food. That means you can start with oysters on the half shell, mussels or truffled deviled eggs. Main plates include salmon cioppino, pan-seared striped bass, filet mignon, pork chops and ribeye with sides of Brussels sprouts, sautéed mushrooms and more. It’s a popular place for drinks and appetizers early in the evening or formal dinners later in the night in the lounge or on the patio.

Bocca Italian eatery & pizzeria

This Italian restaurant with a classy yet comfortable atmosphere is known for its house made pasta, mozzarella, bread and sauces. Signature dishes include the little neck clams, meatballs, pappardella, lobster ravioli, chicken picatta, cacio e pepe and tiramisu. While you might not think of an Italian restaurant for steaks, Bocca has a following for its melt-in-your-mouth aged, hand-cut steaks seared to perfection in its thousand-degree pizza oven. But you won’t see it on the menu, so ask your server. Steaks and seafood are offered as specials almost every night. The wine menu here is thorough, with local craft beer and cocktails also available.

Crabby’s Seafood

Elegant and romantic, Crabby’s serves seafood, steaks and cocktails in a cozy interior and outdoor dining area. Appetizers include crispy fried alligator, sesame-crusted ahi tuna and seafood ceviche. Main dishes include snow crab legs, pan seared scallops, walleye, Mediterranean barramundi, lobster tail, hand-cut steaks with a house made sauce, pasta dishes and much more on their large menu. They also serve brunch, if you’re looking for a gourmet way to start the day.

Other popular restaurants that some consider upscale but have slightly more casual components include Bonefish Grill, Pinnacle Bar & Grill, and Capriccio Ristorante.
