Crescent City Steaks

For the Vojkovich family, the restaurant business is in their blood. For the last 85 years, the family has been behind one of the most famous steakhouses in the city: Crescent City Steaks, founded in 1934 by John Vojkovich, an immigrant from Croatia.

Nearly nine decades later, John’s restaurant still serves his famous New Orleans-style steaks in butter sauce from the same building on North Broad, complete with a vintage dining room with ceramic tiles, curtained private booths and an antique jukebox. Crescent City Steakhouse, which has been a staple for over six generations of New Orleanians, keeps its status among devotees thanks to John’s founding principles: quality and simplicity. They serve USDA prime beef, dry-aged in-house, in the sizzling hot butter style that John made famous in 1934, as well as some finely-honed classics, from crisp fried onion rings to desserts created by John’s wife.

As a family restaurant, the Vojkovichs treat the customers as they would treat family. Their loyalty to quality service and food provides a reliably delicious meal, and their loyalty to the building that has been a home for their business was what helped them to return after the flooding during Katrina. Locals know that all they need to do is look for the famous neon sign to enjoy a New Orleans classic steak dinner at the historic Crescent City Steakhouse.
