As for having your name carved into your t-bone steak, it gets old really quick when the check arrive!

I wanted to check it out at least once but I thought the prices were comparable to good steakhouses in the city, is it more than 45-55 bucks for a cut? I can live with that for a splurge, seeing that the ticket to the game will be like 2 bucks on sh lol

I went for my 20th birthday two years ago. the yankees were playing the mariners in a day game. me and my family left the game around the 8th inning and made it in time for the lunch menu. we watched the rest of the game on tv and the food was great. the steak sandwich was fantastic, along with the nyy steak 151 volcano which was on the house. i want to go for dinner but the menu does seem crazy. but if you ever wanna go to check it out, def go for lunch.

It's not cheap but every time I've been there, it has been very good. I wouldn't go there 81 times per season but as a splurge or special occasion (as my brother-in-law and I did before game 3 of the '09 World Series) it has been worth it every time I've gone.

We went once, had a very nice meal. Actually used it as a break for Old Timers Day, we watched all the intro's from our seats, went to NYY Steak during the Old Timers Game, and then returned to our seats for the regular game.

How many people going to a baseball game without having a fitted cap on? or some kind of hat?


Unless you are a fake-ass-corporate-type who go to the game because your corporation gave you free tickets, then being in your three piece suit is okay.


This is another reason why, more fans willing to wait an hour and more for a table at Hard Rock Cafe - and it is NOT a fast food place.


I went with a group of friends - and the person who will be picking up the check is just a normal guy (in fact he is not), he was offended when they TOLD him he as to removed his fitted hat before they can sit the group of eight. He just laugh and then tell them to cancel the reservation and we just left. We end up having a good time at hard rock cafe without a fuss.

That place is really good. Lots of people talk about Keens, but I personally don't like it there. NYYSteak is one of the more memorable meals I've had. Awesome service, ask for Maureen to be your waitress. I go once a year, always has been one of my best tasting meals.

The last time I check, I dont see anyone in LEGENDS were told to remove their hat!


And Legends food are a whole lot better then NYY steak.


As for the final cost of both - they are the same, but at least Legends give you better food, better service and best view of the game - without the hassle of removing your hat at a STADIUM event.

Yes, it is that good and more.

And if you are lucky enough, you might have your food cook by a five-star chef. You can check for guest-chef on the yankees website.

Be really hungry so you can eat as often as possible. Save a little room for those sweet deserts.


When I have legends access - I will go and eat every 3 innings! And in between innings, I might run and get something quick on the plate head back to the seats and enjoy the game.


Why would I paid for the same amount and getting less by going to NYY Steak? If you are planning to spend at NYY Steak, you might as well getting yourself a legends seat.

But those redemptions would cost me a couple more season tickets so I guess it is not worth the "price of the admission".


Or if I use the hookup within the restaurant for free meal - that would cost me boston/mets/playoff tickets - thanks but no thanks.

If it were not at Yankee Stadium or any other baseball park, I could understand some fussy restaurant that's of the "jackets only" policy requesting a removal of hats. However, in this case, I can't see the reason for this.

Sooner or later, the restaurants will need to adjust to the likely clientele, rather than the other way around.

They have more than enough on the spot "cancellation" due to this BS - which is why there are ALWAYS spots available for walk-in. They used to be "reservation" only during game day. Now you can just walk up and request for a table and they will be glad to find you one.


In the meantime, for Hard Rock Cafe - during game day, you will have to wait for an hour or so, and the waiting list is at least 20 people long. And the people on the waiting list would not mind the wait/

I went to Legends once and found the food to be very good. In terms of food I've purchased at an athletic/concert event, the best. Would I pay $800 on up? No but for the $300 I spent I would do it again coupled with where the seats are.

On an off day they're pretty good. My mother and I ate there for lunch before a tour when the Yankees were on the road. It was maybe 20-25% full and the prices were lower than game days and the food was good.

edit: of course, the menu was a bit more limited.

They actually didn't plan for there to be a second restaurant. They put the Hard Rock there kind of last-minute since they had unplanned extra space.

I guess that is a good mistake for the stadium then - Hard Rock Cafe generates more revenues on game day basis than NYY Steak. If NYY Steak learned anything from the last couple years in loss, they should eliminate the strict rule that should not apply to baseball fans along with the ridiculous pricing. Yeah, it is cool to have your name "scratch" onto the the steak you are having, but that wears off quickly once the check arrived.

And the attitude of "we are better than Hard Rock Cafe" by NYY Steak's greeters, that should change also.

I'm actually surprised by this since NYY Steak is modeled after the Council Oak steakhouse in Tampa- same management I believe- and that is also within a Hard Rock Cafe. You walk through the Hard Rock and Casino to get to the restaurant.

I've never been to the new Stadium, but I went a few times to the old one. The FPs here got me started on that.

If you have the corporate types who make a living as bankers or corporate raiders, then they won't likely be wearing baseball caps. Then again, maybe.

A typical baseball fan will look like the guy coming into a bar wearing (what else?) a baseball cap and shooting pool. Purely blue collar, working class. People like that aren't going to want to remove their cap, and they don't want fancy prices.

I can't believe that their staff claims to be better than the Hard Rock Cafe (which I've never been to, including its various incarnations on 57th St, then on 43rd or so St in Times Sq. Still, which real restaurant has their staff claiming to be "better" than another place? Serve the grub, let the customers decide for themselves. Otherwise, a place sounds petty and hollow.

If I could record the conversations I had with some of them - during their break and see the big crowd waiting for HRC, while they have empty table in NYY Steak.


Even though NYY Steak greeters are a "easier on the eyes" but that alone would not encourage me to eat there again. I still like the pretzel bread, though. Cool concept.

It escapes me as to why a casual chain restaurant like HRC is being compared to a fine dining experience like NYY Steak. These are two completely different types of eateries with two completely different target audiences. Just because they are both at the Stadium does not mean the clientele and the "rules" will or should be be interchangeable.

If one doesn't understand why they need to remove their hat/dress a certain way, then that place is clearly not for them. It's called being respectful to others around you. If I am paying 60 for a steak, I don't want to be looking at some slob in a hat. Sorry. I'm paying that much to get away from casual dining. It's rude.

I dont know which is worst --- dudes and ladies with nasty-ass hair sitting next you while you have your fine dining or people wearing their hats and covered up their nasty hair!

Fine dining is one thing -- but flying hair from your neighbor into your food, now that is another thing.


To each his own I guess! I choose not to go and so many others who willing to spend the money for the overpriced food. If I am paying, I want to be comfortable.


I was there when it first opened - that was fine dining where people were prime and proper. But it all went downhill from there!


PS. If you think NYY Steak is fine dining, you have not been out much then.

PPS. There are a couple non-posting members on here who work for NYY Steak, you know who you are. Why dont you post something about your experiences or is it too closed to home to comment?

It's called etiquette. Greasy hair doesn't generally draw the attention that a hat would. Hat hair is even better than a hat. Be respectful of where you're going. That's basically it. Not everyone will do that (be respectful) but that's hardly an excuse for myself to be disrespectful. And, your interpretations of fine dining are clearly different than others. Don't ruin it for those who chalk up to what NYY Steaks does for others as "not fine dining". If you have the luxury of eating nicer, go for it. Just don't assume that wearing a hat at a place like that is okay because there are "better eats".

Also, I have been to many wonderful restraunts. I have seen people get refused service over things like casual ties or shoes that didn't match. I don't know of it was legal, but if a place is charging $60 for an entree, clean up a little.

That's what I heard from a manager. It's the reason you can't order "to go" -- there is a limited amount of kitchen room and they can only easily serve seated parties with slower turnovers.

Maybe the plans weren't for Hard Rock specifically at that point, or maybe it was originally for NYY Steak, but plans changed afterward. Also remember the Stadium was being planned for years, well before even February of 2006.

It is one thing to have some standards of dress and it is another thing to be ridiculous about it. Once the guy was seated, no one was going to be able to see his shoes anyway. He may have very well spent some serious cabbage that, as it was, they never saw and likely will never see as he isn't likely to come back (at least I wouldn't).

NYY Steak has had an identity crisis since day 1. The first year, they had an enforced dress code and would turn people away in jeans, Yankee jerseys, etc. Not sure if it was the complaints, common sense (its a baseball game..expect Yankee jerseys), or the owners decided that anyone willing to drop $65 for a steak in the South Bronx can wear what they want, but they relaxed the restricition to the point where they now advertise "Yankee Gear welcome"

The fine dining concept does not work at the location. If you do go after a Saturday game for example, some people may be dressed nice, some may be sweating through their clothes form sitting in the hot sun all game. It makes for a weird dynamic

Clearly they are not making enough money to turn people away. The off day hours have been drastically cut and they closed the place in the winter, except for the bowl game. They survive purely on game day crowds, who wear caps and jeans.

If I were the Yankees, I would expand the Hard Rock into the current NYY Steak space, and move NYY Steak to where the Mohegan Sun sports bar is and make it a game only restaurant with views of the field.

The first year, they had an enforced dress code and would turn people away in jeans, Yankee jerseys, etc. Not sure if it was the complaints, common sense (its a baseball game..expect Yankee jerseys), or the owners decided that anyone willing to drop $65 for a steak in the South Bronx can wear what they want, but they relaxed the restricition to the point where they now advertise "Yankee Gear welcome"

The fine dining concept does not work at the location. If you do go after a Saturday game for example, some people may be dressed nice, some may be sweating through their clothes form sitting in the hot sun all game. It makes for a weird dynamic

Clearly they are not making enough money to turn people away. The off day hours have been drastically cut and they closed the place in the winter, except for the bowl game. They survive purely on game day crowds, who wear caps and jeans.

If I were the Yankees, I would expand the Hard Rock into the current NYY Steak space, and move NYY Steak to where the Mohegan Sun sports bar is and make it a game only restaurant with views of the field.


The talk already started last year AFTER they looked at the bottom line - and HRC did a whole lot better than NYY Steak.

Most likely, they will convert the current spot into HRC and NYY Steak will have to find another place to make money.

Mohegan is under contract - they are not going anywhere.


If anything, they might try to merge NYY Steak with Legends.

For the record, brown shoes with black pants are indeed atrocious.

That said, NYY steak, though it usually would command a decent dress code, the fact it's in a baseball stadium should give it some leeway. Even then, I could definitely understand no shorts, flip flops and no hats.

No matter what anyone thinks of NYY Steak, I've been in there quite a few times and have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. I've always had great service and an excellent meal. If I were concerned about how much it was costing me, I wouldn't go at all. Whenever I've gone, it has been for more of a special occasion or to introduce someone else to it that hadn't been there before. I've been in Hard Rock Cafes from Boston to Hawaii. They are what they are but, in the end, they're all pretty much the same.

Obviously the Yankees are concerned about the bottom line and the NYYS concept might not be the best fit for a stadium on game days but until such time as they close it down, I'll continue to go when the occasion calls for it.

I know the place is packed when there is a ball game, but does anyone know how the place does on non-game days? They market it as a restaurant for a business lunch to impress clients, but most businesses of that sort are in Manhattan where there are tons of great restaurants in the same price range that fit the bill. Why schlep to The Bronx?

It is like a ghost town during non-game day. The Yankees are trying to save it by bundling Lunch and Stadium tours together.

It is still not working.

In the meantime, HRC still have a decent crowd for lunch and so forth - most are lawyers who work their cases at the court house nearby.

Last time I was at NYY Steak last year, I overheard someone saying he needed a hot fudge sundae for Jorge Posada. I asked him who he was and he said he was a Yankee clubhouse attendant (I forgot his name, but he was mentioned often in Clubhouse Confidential...). He said the restaurant and stadium was designed so poorly that there is no dumb waiter or elevator to get food directly from the restaurant to the clubhouse.... instead the attendant has to make multiple trips from the clubhouse to the main floor, switch to the HRC elevator and then to NYY Steak... really bad planning. I'm surprised the sundae doesn't melt by the time he gets it back.

I'm not sure why you think this is bad planning. Why should the Yanks be concerned with the ease of access between their public restaurant and the clubhouse, when they're in the restaurant business to make money, not to cater to the players.

I've eaten at NYY Steak, and don't get me wrong, they serve a very good porterhouse, but no better than Palm Steakhouse and certainly not as good as Peter Luger.

With all the great steakhouses in Manhattan (and Lugers in Brooklyn), why would anybody in their right mind go to that section of the Bronx to eat steak on a non-game day? I'd imagine that most people going on the Yankee Stadium tour on off days are not executives but tourists who would probably rather eat in a casual restaurant like HRC.

Peter Lugers right by the Williamsburg bridge - has to be one of the best steakhouse I have ever eaten in. The porterhouse there - can easily be divided for two persons, but who would want to? When something is THAT good especially with the house's sauce to go along with the sautee mushrooms --- now that worth every penny!

Agreed, but you would think they would want the attendant in the clubhouse at all times... Adding a dumb waiter to get food from the 200 level to the 000 level wouldn't have been too hard.

There are many ways to look at it. Sometimes on Friday and Saturdays, I will want to go out drinking after the game. That means I have to alter my outift for the game. I'm obviously not wearing a cap, no athletic shoes, maybe some black sneakers or loafers, no jersey...basically if you saw me at a lounge in the city, you would have no idea I just came from a game. I think the same mindset should be used if you plan on going to NYY Steak. If you know you will be having a sixty dollar steak, you should dress accordingly. I am assuming if you were having a sixty dollar steak, you would know beforehand. Who goes to a baseball game and randomly says, you know what, I think I'm gonna go eat some overpriced beef right now; and if you are one of those people, just take the damn cap off.


Lugers is good, I personally like the rib eye at Del Friscos in midtown. At Quality Meats in 58th, they make the steak sauce right in front of you at your table. Ben and Jacks has a great porterhouse for 2.

I don't care where you are, when you sit down to eat you take off your hat. I make my kids take off their hat at McDonalds. Its a matter of manners and respect. It was what I was taught, its what my Dad was taught, its what I teach my kids, and its what I'm sure they will teach their kids. I'm not a rich upper class guy and neither were my parents. They grew up in El Barrio. I'm a teacher and everyday I see a disregard for common manners. Not many of them take their hats off upon entering the building (they always need to be told) and those same kids put them on before exiting the building. If they had their druthers they'd wear them in the cafeteria, I'm sure, if we didn't make them put them in their lockers. It all starts when they are young and they aren't taught simple lessons of common manners in the home. Next thing you know they're wearing hats in expensive restaurants. Que jibaros!

That being said I have not been to Lugers yet but the best steak for my money so far is Benjamins. The porterhouse for one or two is simply amazing!

Last year, before one game, we went to Katz's, got a couple of pastrami sandwiches to go, and brought them into the Stadium.

The bag smelled like crap, but, boy, what a treat. Yankee baseball and succulent pastrami; it doesn't get better. Everyone around us was drooling and said that's what they're going to do the next time they go to a game.

For the record I've never been to NYY Steak or any of the steakhouses mentioned on this thread. If I ever do go, I will without hesitation take off my hat. Speaking of generations, I'm sure if there was a fancy restaurant in the original Stadium men would have had no problem taking off their straw hats and fedoras. I guess as generations change, it seems as though the amount of class people have change for the worse

When you have conversation with "friends" who have access to the bottom line .. it is not that difficult.


And they have heard the same complaints many times before and they are trying to change it.


Another thing, there are plenty of "non-posting" members on here who are part of the organizations. They all have a job to do which is find out what make the fans tick and how they can better that.


I am very vocal about this because if I was running the place, it wont be as strict since it is built to serve baseball game's attendees. And instead of waiting for walk-in to fill up the place, reservations would have been even better served.

NYY Steak used to live on "reservation" money and walk-in is bonus. There were no need to branch out and so forth. Before, walk-in was non-existence. But now, if you are in the mood to spend and dont mind the strict rule, they will accept your money.
