Nothing says “I love you” quite like a delicious steak dinner—especially on Valentine’s Day. And the easiest way to raise the bar is by ordering a steak delivery from a specialty butcher (since they tend to be higher quality than the standard supermarket cut). With that in mind, we scoured the internet to find the best mail-order steak boxes and subscriptions to order this year, including for your upcoming date night in.
Whether you prefer your filet mignon hand-cut by Chicago butchers or have secretly been wishing for a curated box of grass-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free steak in several cuts, there's an online steak delivery service that fits the bill. The best part is that most of them offer one-time and monthly subscription deliveries through the mail, meaning you won't need to run to the local butcher every time you want beef for dinner. Without further ado, here are the 12 best online steak delivery services that ship top-tier meat directly to your door. All you have to do is prepare it…and wait for your S.O.’s rave reviews.
The Best Online Steak Delivery Services to Order in 2023, at a Glance
- Delivery Time: 1 to 3 days
Not only does Holy Grail Steak Co. offer some of the best Waygu steak selections on the market, they also sell premium Wagyu burgers, salmon and more, starting at under $20. You can shop based on your mood, whether you're set on a half-pound Wagyu burger or, our favorite, a Santa Carota Carrot-Finished Strip Steak. Stock up for the month or order just what you need for your upcoming dinner party.
This subscription box is every grill master’s dream. Choose from four different boxes, some of which contain pork, fish and chicken. But since we’re talking steak, we have our eye on Butcher Box’s Custom Box, which scores you 20 percent more meat than the curated boxes and can include everything from New York strip steak to chuck roast. And, FYI, all of Butcher Box’s meat is grass-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free and humanely pasture-raised by trusted farmers.
- Delivery Time: 5 to 7 days
Chicago Steak Company is a purveyor of hand-selected, Midwest-raised Premium Angus USDA Prime beef. Each steak—from filet mignon to the dry-aged tomahawk to Kobe Wagyu ribeye—is hand-cut by Chicago butchers that have an impressive five generations of experience. Standard shipping is five to seven days, but express and overnight options are also available. (P.S. You can’t go wrong with the Best Seller, which boasts filet mignon, boneless strips, top sirloin and ribeye.)
- Delivery Time: 1 to 3 days
FarmFoods sells everything, including seafood, pheasant and even elk, but we’re big fans of their grass-fed, sustainably-raised beef that’s free of antibiotics and hormones. The meat ships to you on dry ice that can last more than 12 hours, so your steaks are safe even if you’re not home to unpack them the moment they arrive. While you could add just enough for dinner to your cart, the Rich and Full Flavor Grass-Fed Beef Pack is quite a steal for more than ten pounds of beef, ranging from chuck roast to flat iron steak. (It includes free shipping, too.)
- Delivery Time: varies by location
Crowd Cow sources its grass-fed meat from independent, sustainable producers, including a mix of family farms and co-ops. While you have a ton to choose from (including an impressive range of American and Japanese Wagyu), we’d opt for the boneless ribeye come date night. It’s prized for its marbling and tenderness without being too pricy. Shipping time varies based on your location, but many customers receive their meat in as little as two days. You also have the option of making your order a recurring delivery, so you can set it and forget it.
Make this your one-stop shop for beef, lamb, chicken and pork, all pasture-raised and grass-fed on family-owned farms. (The meat is also free of hormones and antibiotics.) The steaks are dry-aged and hand-cut at Porter Road’s own facilities, and unlike many other steak delivery services, most of the meat is never frozen. Instead, it’s vacuum-sealed and wrapped in biodegradable insulation, which is super effective at keeping it cold. The Whole Bavette is great for Valentine’s Day because it’s thicker and larger than a skirt steak (go big or go home, right?), but more importantly, it’s dry-aged for at least 14 days, so it’s incredibly tender and flavorful. Expect your order in three business days or fewer.
- Delivery Time: 1 to 3 days
Ever met a butcher who invented a whole new breed of cattle? We didn’t think so. That’s what makes family-owned Snake River Farms so special. They first bred Wagyu with high-quality cattle in the ’80s and have been perfecting their meat’s unique marbling and deep flavor ever since. The best part? You get to choose your delivery date. (Oh, and the filet mignon two-pack has date night written all over it.)
This family-owned company is world-famous for a reason. Omaha Steaks was founded more than 100 years ago in Nebraska, the cattle capital of the U.S., and that’s where the steaks are still sourced from today. All of them are grass-fed, grain-finished and aged for at least 21 days for tenderness. For Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with the special Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignons. And if you order with standard delivery, expect it in five business days or fewer.
Shop beef, poultry, pork, lamb, game and seafood from some of the best suppliers in the world via Meat N’ Bone. The beef in particular is sourced from family farms in the Midwest, besides some Wagyu cuts from Japan and Australia. Why don’t you and your honey cozy up to a classic surf & turf on date night by sharing a juicy porterhouse steak and an Australian lobster tail? Shipping takes about three days on average, but rates vary based on your location.
- Delivery Time: 4 to 7 business days
There’s no shortage of steak to choose from on Harry & David’s online store. But the Stock Yards steaks are the cream of the crop. The USDA Prime and Choice cuts are aged for 21 to 30 days, so they’re guaranteed to be super flavorful and tender. We’d suggest the Kings and Queens collection, featuring two USDA choice filet mignons, two center-cut New York strips and a tin of epicure seasoning.
- Delivery Time: varies by brand
You can get just about anything shipped to your doorstep with Goldbelly, a curated marketplace of artisanal foods and snacks from local restaurants and food producers all over the country. And it truly doesn’t get more convenient than the steak dinner for two kit from Old Homestead Steakhouse in NYC. The iconic resto has been in the Meatpacking District since 1868, so it’s safe to say they know a thing or two about beef. The kit includes a trimmed filet, a dry-aged New York sirloin, creamed spinach, a sherry potato cake and a bottle of marinade, so all you’ll have to worry about is dessert.
- Delivery Time: 3 to 5 days
This New York staple has been slinging some of the country's finest beef since 1887. Named best steakhouse in NYC by Zagat since 1984, a Peter Luger delivery will definitely impress your dinner date. Included are two 36-ounce, dry-aged porterhouse steaks, along with two bottles of Peter Luger's signature steakhouse sauce, milk chocolate Luger coins and a reusable cooler.
