BR Prime is one of the many fine restaurants at Beau Rivage Resort and Casino, and it just so happens to be the most expensive place to dine in Mississippi. So what hikes up the price so much? The chateaubriand clocking in at $100 is certainly not cheap, but it’s the 2-pound lobster stuffed with crab and the 40-ounce tomahawk rib-eye — both at $125 — that give the restaurant its expensive reputation.

> Price of filet mignon, 12-ounce center cut: $67.00
Located in Kansas City’s Union Station, Pierpont’s is the most expensive restaurant in Missouri, but not by much. Close behind is Le Fou Frog where the most expensive meal is $62, just $5 less than the priciest meal at Pierpont’s. The most expensive entrée at Pierpont’s, however, isn’t necessarily the most expensive item on the menu in this case. The Royal Siberian sturgeon is 1 ounce of caviar served with crème fraîche, capers, and crackers that is priced at astonishing $99.
