Going out for steak this week (someone else's dollar) and trying to decide between Mahogany and Pryhme. The reviews for Pryhme were very mixed when it first opened.  Someone people said it was great some demanded their money back. The mixed reviews on Urbanspoon reflect this as well.  I'm wondering if the restaurant has become more consistent and what the general consensus is now.  I've been to Mahogany several times but never Pryhme and I don't want to disappoint my out of town friends.

I have been a couple of times and had good experiences.  Most of the people I know who have been had either an extremely good or an extremely bad experience.  Mahogany is probably the safer bet since you are entertaining clients.

I've had good experience at Prhyme. Their risotto is amaze-balls.

I would choose Mahogany as well.

I've heard more and more positive reviews of Prhyme last few weeks.  The space isn't very big, so make a reservation and expect it to be a bit noisy.  Also, don't get the most expensive steak, get the cheaper ones and you'll have a better experience.

Have any of you ever been to the Spudder?

It is at 50th and Sheridan and has a pretty good steak. The decor is a collection of the oil business and the prices are mostly reasonable for a quality steak. They are only open for dinner and closed Sundays.

Menu and pictures are here...

Here is a video when the Man v Food guy went there...

Spudder is more of a family place.  I wouldn't take clients or anyone I wanted to impress there.

I was turned off by Mahogany. First of all, it is a chain and I prefer locally owned. They are owned by the same people who own Krispy Kreme, Louie's and Redrock Canyon. Secondly, I was surprised that my $40 steak came with no sides. Side items prices ranged from $7 to $13 extra.

Finally, I thought the service was overpowering. When our party of four received our steaks from our two waiters, four extra waiters whipped out flashlights to shine on our steaks and waited for each of us to cut into them and let them know if they were cooked to our liking. It came off to me as odd and kinda creepy.

With a couple of drinks and tip our bill was $400.

I hadn't thought of The Spudder in forever.  It's sort of hidden and they rarely do any advertising.  I suppose they've got that much of a loyal following they really don't need to advertise.

I've never tried Mahogany's or Flemmings.  MC has and she assures me what we grill at home is on par with either place and we'd be wasting money by going to either one.  Either I do that great on the grill or she's just great at making me feel good about myself.  A place I do enjoy is McGills if I'm going to get a steak when I'm out.

That's well above my threshold of enjoyment for a steak dinner.

Steak coming with no sides is pretty standard at premium steakhouses.  It appears to be the same at Phryme, whose prices are comparable to (if not higher than) Mahogany.

Have you thought about the sizzler...

Of your two, Mahogany. They have an appetizer sampler that is outstanding. I would also consider going with Flemings or even Bluestone (I'm a southie)

The lobster escargot at Mahogany will make you slap your mother with a brick!  I'm also partial to their wild mushrooms.

Premium steakhouses are ŕ la carte.  Mahogany, Phryme, Flemings, Ruth's Chris, Capitol Grill, Red Prime (OKC) just a few I've visited in last year or so that were all ŕ la carte.

The service you received is also fairly typical.

Yes, Mahogany is a "chain" with three locations owned by Hal Smith Restaurant Group originally based in Norman.  Their original concepts are Louie's, Charleston's, Redrock Canyon Grill, The Garage, Upper Crust, Hollie's Flatiron Steakhouse (which I believe was heavily damaged in last week's tornado), Hefner Grill, Boomerang Grille, Toby Keith's and a few others that I can't think of off top of my head.  Most of their concepts have less than five locations.  They are in process of opening a Kevin Durant signature restaurant in Bricktown.  They are the Krispy Kreme franchisee for this area.  I don't really consider Mahogany a chain, like I don't consider McNellie's a chain.  Hell, once the McNellie's opens up just around the corner they'll have more locations.

I believe he also owns and operates his own cattle ranches for his meat, in Oklahoma an Nebraska.
