The RingSide Experience

Recognized as the leader in Portland steakhouses since 1944, RingSide Steakhouse has been serving our community for seven decades with the same family ownership. At the steakhouse most guests begin their dining experience with RingSide’s legendary world famous onion rings - James Beard once claimed them to be… ”the best I’ve ever had.” RingSide Steakhouse Uptown has been perfecting the steakhouse experience over the past 70 years. Set in a one-of-a-kind brick building in the Nob Hill section of Portland, Oregon, this venerable landmark has its own civic identity.

From their first steps into the RingSide experience, guests are taken care of. Congenial valets will gladly park cars in the restaurant’s safe and secure parking lot and parking is complimentary. Well informed, long-in-service wait staff, some of whom have served at the restaurant more than 30 years, use their expertise to make the meal the best it can possibly be. The warm and welcoming fireplace along with the formal tuxedoed service signal to guests they are in a comfortable, venerable establishment.

Choose a steak from a menu offering a variety of USDA Prime and Certified Angus Natural Beef selections that are aged a minimum of four weeks. Steaks are hand cut on the premises and dry-aged steaks are aged in one of Portland’s only on-premise dry-aging rooms.

Entrée selections beyond steak are available. Diners can count on the finest in locally sourced lamb, pork, chicken and seafood; the twin Maine lobster tails are an event in luxury dining. To accompany one of these fine dining choices, pick a wine from a list of more than 700 labels. Wine Spectator, the magazine for devoted wine lovers, has recognized RingSide Steakhouse with its "Best of Award of Excellence" since 2001.

RingSide Steakhouse Uptown has been recognized with significant awards and honors, including: Tom Horan’s America’s Top Ten Hall of Fame; Great Steakhouses of North America; Wine Spectator’s "Best of Award of Excellence" and the much coveted DiRoNA Award of Excellence – from Distinguished Restaurants of North America.

The Chef


Born in Fort Bragg, NC, Beau Carr relocated with his family to the Northwest at the age of eight. After years of working in various kitchens in the Portland area, Beau found himself at Huber’s, the Portland landmark restaurant, serving as Sous Chef. Upon graduating from Western Culinary Institute in 1990, Carr was named Chef de Cuisine at Northwest Restaurant, and was also tapped as Executive Chef/Owner of Chalet Swiss. In 1998, Carr joined the RingSide family as Executive Chef where he oversees the full culinary program at RingSide Steakhouse Uptown.

Beau’s love of food came early in life: his favorite meal as a child was a beefsteak tomato sandwich picked fresh from his grandmother’s garden. His mother’s specialty was their annual Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. When not in the kitchen at RingSide, Carr enjoys boating and the great outdoors.

Best SteakHouse



2165 W Burnside St. / 223-1513

Ringside has been serving steaks to Portlanders long enough that the late James Beard himself is said to have called its onion rings the best he’d ever had.  Oh, and the steaks? Dry-aged, glazed with butter and cooked to perfection.


Feast Portland 2015

SATURDAY, SEPT 19TH  6:00PM - 9:00PM

Don’t call it a cookout! The festival’s newest marquee event closes out the weekend with a sizzling celebration of animal, vegetable, fire, sea and forest. Featuring top masters of the flame from Portland and around the country, this event will stoke your appetite for everything flamed, grilled and free-ranged. Set to the tune of bold Northwest wines, classic cocktails and an epic view of the Fremont Bridge, Smoked! is ready to spark things up with live fire and some of the best bites of the weekend..


One of Portland's oldest family-owned restaurants and still the city's best traditional steakhouse, RingSide at 70 has a clubby, Rat Pack-era charm, quality steaks and some of the city's most on-the-ball servers. You won't find bavette steak, pork secreto or other trendy cuts popular at modern meat houses. RingSide stays on Main Street with juicy rib-eye steaks, thick pork chops and fat lobster tails, all seared to order and delivered with a smile and a fluffy baked potato...You're better off leaving your budget (and your diet) at the door.

No. 1: RingSide Steakhouse

You know you’re doing something right when James Beard proclaims one of your dishes to be “the best I’ve ever had.” That’s what the champion of American cuisine once said about RingSide Steakhouse’s onion rings.

Craig, Jan and Scott Peterson are third-generation owners of the restaurant their grandfather bought in 1944. While the restaurant underwent a major remodel in 2010, it has maintained its old school personality, and a loyal clientele and staff.

Chef Beau Carr has been at RingSide for 16 years and a handful of other employees have been on staff for more than 30 years.

We talked with Craig Peterson about what’s kept RingSide Steakhouse thriving for 70 years.
