Raleigh Area Restaurant for B-day

Hello to the folks in NC,
I'm looking for recommendations for a nice restaurant in the Raleigh area to take my hubby for his birthday this weekend. He would like a really good steak. We live in Apex (but are newbies to the area - been here 6 months). It can be in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Durham.... a great special occasion restaurant is worth the drive!

Thanks for any help you can provide! Paula

The best steak I've eaten in the Raleigh area is at Ruth's Chris in Cary. Granted it's been a few years. Angus Barn is nice for the ambiance, but not as good a steak.

Not quite on the same level, I more recently ate at Firebirds Rocky Mountain Grill in North Hills in Raleigh. It may not be as nice as you'd like for a birthday dinner, but I really enjoyed the steak. Maybe that could just be a date night at some other time for you guys.

Paula - when my DH made a reservation last weekend at Angus Barn they asked him if anyone was celebrating a birthday. It seems like they make a big deal out of celebrations. The place is huge and he said there were lots of balloons at different tables and a lot of celebrations going on. He said the steak was good, not great, but they gave them tons of food.

Birdie - Thanks. Yes, we have been once to the Angus Barn, and yes, they do make a big thing out of celebrations, but I have to say, I have had better steaks for less $$ at other nearby restaurants.

GoTravel - Thanks again for the recommendation!! We went to Margaux's and the food was excellent. It was a great birthday celebration. Paula

Sullivans downtown along Glenwood South if you want a more urban feel and a really nice restaurant. Also, JKs in North Hills is suppose to be very good.
