Steaks & Game probably has the most unique array of meats to choose from, among all of the steak companies we reviewed. Sure, you can get the average flank steak, a decent ribeye, or a tomahawk - but why not add bison burgers, elk chops, or ostrich steaks to your order?
Online shopping experience hasn't improved
The last time we evaluated Steaks & Game, we found a lot of issues with their online store and hoped to see big improvements. That hasn't happened yet. First and foremost, we had a hard time finding the steaks we wanted in stock. For example, the Grass Fed Beef Prime Rib page said that no products currently existed in that category; under Wagyu we found a listing but it was out of stock.
Filet mignon is listed under the Tenderloin category; even there, the cuts were all just "tenderloin" and not "filet mignon" (there's a difference), and almost all of them were out of stock. And samplers? Forget about it: you'd have to mix-and-match something for yourself, assuming you can actually find enough steaks you want that are ready to ship.
Lots of mistakes
Beyond inventory problems, we once again found random typos (like putting "PHONEPHONE" in the returns section for their contact information instead of the actual company phone number, or listing ground shipping fees for orders under $70 as $110.99 instead of - we assume - $10.99). In the hopes of finding more in-stock steaks, we clicked on the link for "Best Sellers" at the bottom of the site; it took us to a completely different company's online store, no warning. Like we said before, that kind of oversight gives the impression that this steak company isn't really at the top of their game - ever.
Is anyone buying steak here?
It's still hard to find customer feedback for Steaks & Game too. BBB listing? Nope. Independently-verified ratings from customers on third-party sites? No again. Reviews on individual cuts of meat? Few and far between. And when a retailer doesn't have a clear satisfaction guarantee or refund policy, shopper feedback can mean the difference between clicking "order now" or searching for a different steak company.
Lowest recommendation among steak companies
As much as we want to like this company (what adventurous eater wouldn't love to try some grilling sausages made of pheasant or wild boar?!), we're always disappointed with the experience of trying to buy...well, anything here. You'll literally have to shop elsewhere for your steaks because it's rare (pun intended) that Steaks & Game will have what you want in stock.
It would be nice if we all had access to a nearby butcher with locally-sourced, sustainably raised beef at prices we could afford, but that's just not the reality for most people. But don't let that stand in the way of getting a juicy ribeye or a surf-and-turf package for your next special occasion or "just because" !
Buying steaks online is convenient, safe and reliable, often allowing you to choose cuts you can track all the way back to the farms and ranches they came from and right to your doorstep. You might be surprised by how customer-friendly some steak companies can be, often offering perks like free shipping, promotional savings, and loyalty points that can be redeemed for discounts on future orders.
And let's not forget about steak as a gift! Yes, that's right: you can send a steak, a sampler, or an entire meal to someone special - or to an entire team of people at the holidays. We can almost guarantee that a delicious steak will be far more memorable than another pen or boring gift card. Wouldn't you rather get beef too? You can always strike a balance and give a steak company gift certificate: you get all of the thanks and they get to pick a cut they prefer.
You should be forewarned that what you'll pay for an online steak order is sometimes going to be more expensive than what you'd spend at your local supermarket. After all, you've got to factor in the costs to package and deliver the steak so that it arrives in perfect condition. However, it's well worth the extra cost to get a steak that delivers an unparalleled, mouth-watering dining experience, right?
Where to begin? No two steak companies are the same, and there are quite a few of them out there! But, there's no need to get overwhelmed. Here are some ways you can differentiate among the online options and find the steaks you want:
