When the snow begins to fall and the holidays are in sight, Metro Detroiters take the cue to indulge in rich meals that match the celebratory energy of the season. While the local restaurant scene boasts countless dishes that fit the bill, there’s one meal in particular that many save for this time of year. Tender, delicious, and drenched in au jus, prime rib is perhaps the most iconic entree of the winter months. If you’re craving that medium-rare goodness, check out one of these elite establishments.
Considered by many to be Clawson’s premier dining experience, Clawson Steak House has delighted Metro Detroiter’s palates for decades. The classic, old-school ambiance, high-top bar and live entertainment complement a menu that has been refined to absolute perfection.
Amongst other exceptional steaks, chops, and seafood, the legendary prime rib has been awarded as one of the top five in the state and can be ordered in the house-cut size, or a larger double-cut. Be prepared for a lot of food, and look forward to the leftovers you’ll have for sliced prime rib sandwiches the next day.
Roseville is home to Mr. Paul’s Chop House, which has been serving up prime seafood and steaks since 1968. The 16-oz Black Angus prime rib comes charbroiled with two sides and, of course, doused in the house au jus. When it comes to a classic dish, you’ve got to trust the restaurants that have been doing it for years. Mr. Paul’s has you covered.

Known as one of the nation’s premier dining institutions throughout the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s, LCH holds a nostalgic place in the heart of old-time Detroiters. With a cigar bar upstairs, live entertainment nightly, and an exceptional menu of classic cuisine and fine wine, it’s the perfect destination to plan your pre-holiday family feast.
