CHICAGO STEAK COMPANY

Chicago Steak Company is a provider of gourmet steaks, seafood and desserts. They offer corn-fed USDA beef from cattle raised in the Midwest. The Chicago Steak Company allows their meat to wet age for a minimum of 28 days to maximize tenderness and enhance the flavors. The selection of steaks and gift options are significant.

Finding a gift from the Chicago Steak Company is easy. You simply click on "Gift Selections" category to review a number of options. You may choose from several nice combination boxes with hamburgers, steaks, chicken, and more all packaged in nice gift boxes. You may also select a box of steaks, a steak of the month club, gourmet meat, seafood and desserts. Gift certificates are available from this site and all purchases come with grilling tips and a suggested temperature chart for better results.

In selecting a steak, you may choose from three different qualities of meat including premium choice, black angus, and USDA prime five star reserve. While the selection of cuts and quality are abundant there was some limitation with buying your size of choice. For example, black angus filet mignon are only offered in the 10 oz size versus other sites that offer 4 oz, 6 oz and 8 oz sizes. Steak prices range based on the quality of steak selected but were generally in the middle- to higher- range of the companies we reviewed.

In the event that you aren't satisfied with your purchase from Chicago Steak Company they will replace the purchase or refund your money - whichever you prefer. We found several accounts of happy customers that loved the taste of the meat and the entire shopping experience with this company.

Chicago Steak Company offers a wonderful shopping opportunity for those looking to purchase quality meat for friends and family on their holiday list. We appreciated the customer service at this company along with all of the gift options available. If you are looking to buy steaks you should definitely consider Chicago Steak Company for all your needs.

HARRY & DAVID

You may already be familiar with Harry & David as prime source of gifts for all occasions. Especially around the holidays, you might have had some of their famous Moose Munch or received a shipment of seasonal fruit. But, did you know that their partnership with Stock Yards allows you to order top-quality beef, aged for 21-30 days, for yourself or for your gift-giving needs?

Harry & David's is part of a larger brand family that gives customers access to a wide range of products, from flowers to chocolate and much more. That also lets you take advantage of an exceptional guarantee across all of their partner companies: love what you receive, or get a replacement or refund, no questions asked.

So, what mouth-watering goodness can you find with Harry & David? Look under the Stock Yards Steaks tab and you'll see a total of 30 items ranging from New York Strip Steak to Chateaubriand Tenderloin Roast and much more. Is surf and turf more your style? They've got that too. You'll also find options for extras: look for the button that says "Add Something Special" to add in wine, savory finishing butters, seasonings, and other items that can enhance your Steak or Seafood choice.

Unlike most of the Steak retailers in our review, Harry & David takes gift-giving to a new level by offering monthly subscription clubs: Stock Yards Club and Steakhouse Club. Yes, you read that right: a club for MEAT! Now, as you might expect, these clubs don't come cheap. Both offer the option to have monthly deliveries for 3, 6, or 12 months, and you can choose the month that your membership begins - either the current month or one of the following two months.

The Steakhouse option ranges from $349.99 (three-month) to $1,299.99 (12-month) and features USDA Prime and USDA Choice cuts of "steakhouse-quality steaks, chops, and more". Previous selections include four 10-ounce filet mignon, rack of lamb, and spiral sliced ham. If you'd prefer to spend a little less, the Stock Yards Club retails for $199.99 to $749.99 and includes many of the meat selections from the premium club, along with some lower-cost options like steak burgers and pork roast. Club prices do not include shipping fees of $9.99 per delivery.

While there is a Celebrations Passport program that allows shoppers to get free shipping and other perks for a year, all for a fee of $29.99, be aware that the shipping discount would only apply to your a la carte order, not to either of the Steak clubs. But, if you're planning on ordering several gifts over the course of 12 months - flowers for Mother's Day, chocolates for Valentine's Day, popcorn for Christmas, and so on - you should decide if the Passport membership might be worth the investment.

Overall, Harry & David is a solid choice for Steak, and their two membership clubs give them an advantage over some of their competitors.

Whether you're shopping for your relatives, an important client, or a barbeque buff, finding the right gift can be a challenge. The internet has brought us access to a number of great choices for gift giving. One practical and welcomed idea in today's economy is steak.

  • Gift Giving Options. Does the steak company cater towards the gift giver? Do the packaging and services create a wonderful gift? How many gift giving choices are you provided? Can you choose from steaks, combo packages, and gift certificates?
