Julia Child said that the only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook! I think she was on to something… don’t you? I can’t go a season without visiting at least one of my favorite steakhouses in Loudoun County! Here are my top picks:
Quality, exceptional service and an unparalleled atmosphere have made Eddie Merlot’s one of America’s great steak houses. They start with U.S.D.A. Prime beef. Only 2% of all U.S. beef is awarded this superior certification. They age it naturally for a minimum of 21 days, to an unparalleled standard of tenderness and flavor. The chef then personally selects each piece for the optimum proportion of marbling and texture, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender and juicy steaks to your specifications.

DC Prime Steaks & Lobsters
At D.C. Prime they serve only USDA Prime Beef, (which is the top 1% of all beef in the United States). Their fresh seafood is sourced direct from North Coast Seafood of Boston, MA., their whole lobsters from the cold waters of Maine, and their Mero Sea Bass Steaks arrive overnight from Honolulu Fish Company, Honolulu, HI. Their wine list is extensive, featuring over 500 bottles. DC Prime has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Zagot Award of Excellence, Best Steakhouse in Northern VA, Top Ten Best Steakhouse of DC area (Open Table) and Best Restaurant (by Open Table diners).
