I eat at one once or twice a year, and rarely regret the visit.
Just my opinion here but... the problem with steak is it's just not that hard to prepare yourself, the quality/cut are what is paramount to a good steak. I almost never order steak at a nice restaurant in the US.
That being said, I am guilty of ordering the flat iron steak at Sammy's Woodfired Pizza & Grill on occasion. It's priced in the $20-$22 range and really good for the price. (They also have lamb chops with crisp Brussels sprouts and a balsamic reduction sauce in this price range, but I digress.)
I hear really good things about Silverado at South Point and Sonoma at Sunset Station from people that frequent the upscale/pricier places. There seems to be a fair amount of agreement that these places have a much better QPR than the big name places and that the big name place are indeed, overpriced.
FYI - Sammy's has some killer mini duck tacos on their menu.
