Description: Step back in time as you step through the door into our beautiful, tiled dining room where New Orleans’ original sizzling steaks have been served since the doors opened in 1934. We offer prime, dry-aged beef that is cut in-house and cooked to your desire as well as seafood options such as broiled lobster tail and salmon to name a couple. Our commitment to quality does not end in the kitchen. Our extensive wine list consists of over 130 bottles from around the world. Our bar offers a wide array of quality liquors and liqueurs including single malt and blended scotches, bourbons, whiskeys, vodkas, and gins to name a few. We even have a specialty cocktail list which includes the Crescent City Martini, a Vojkovich family favorite that is made with a delectable, Croatian liqueur. Crescent City Steaks has been owned and operated by the Vojkovich family since Mr. John first opened the doors over 75 years ago, and his spirit lives on through the essence of family that transcends everything we do. It is our tradition to treat and care for our customers as family, and what better way to do so than to provide an exceptional meal in an atmosphere that rivals the comforts of home. So, come in; have a seat; and, become part of the family at Crescent City Steaks, the home of New Orleans’ original sizzling steak.

“Great New Orleans food”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

It's the original sizzling steak restaurant. The reason they are still in business is because they continue to provide 4 star meals. Of all the steak restaurants in New Orleans, this is my favorite. The prices are very reasonable compared to all the others.

“An excellent steak at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

There is something different about Crescent City steaks and I'm not sure what it is. They are very fine and I always enjoy going there, but the steaks do not taste the same as in other venues. Just an observation, maybe not all that important, but pay attention the next time you go there and see if you agree.

I went with a distant family member who is a foodie and a Crescent City devotee. They pulled out the stops for him, so our service was outstanding. We had the big Porterhouse for two and I put away a lot of food. My relative is a skinny guy and I could not believe how much steak he consumed all by himself!

This is not a place for tourists. The neighborhood is nowhere you would want to walk in at night, but the parking lot is well-lit and spacious.

There is great value to be had at Crescent City and I recommend it without reservation.

“Great Steaks. Sides could be improved. Old School atmosphere.”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Over all the servers and bus persons were very helpful, attentive, and charming. They were friendly and laid back. They made us feel comfortable and at home. Ordered our steaks medium rare as is the correct way to order them and both came out perfect sizzling in butter. We had a Strip and a Ribeye. Cheaper than most steakhouses running at about $25-$30. Our sides were good, but could use a little jazzing up. All a la carte running at about $5 each. They were hearty, but fairly basic. Fairly inexpensive wines by the glass and cocktails.

**This is a great old time steak house of New Orleans, when going here, one must know that it is a mom and pop type a joint so don't expect perfection. They have been doing this for 70 plus years and must be doing something right. Some reviews can be a little too critical. The atmosphere is inviting and full of families carrying on the tradition of steak dinners. Overall great place. Highly recommend. The food may not be perfect, but the experience is.

“NICE SURPRISE!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

My parents gave my husband and me a gift certificate to Crescent City Steak House for our anniversary. Neither one of us had ever eaten there before last Saturday night. We were very pleased with the service and the food. We arrived at 9:15 and were done by 10:15. The sides were delicious and so was the steak. We both ribeyes and they were fabulous. We will visit again and have already recommended it to friends and family. The only negative thing I can say is that the restaurant closes too early for a Friday night.
