OMG...I live in Okeechobee and hadn't tried this restaurant until recently. Partly because it is in what looks to be a small run down building on the edge of the city accross from a gas station attached to a bar....but mostly because I work all the time. But, I am glad I finally made the time to go and try... More

From reading the reviews it sounded like we would be pleased. The exterior is a dump! Surprised anyone goes there when you see the outside. The inside was dark and dingy. We thought the prices were very expensive, considering the atmosphere. Ordered a 10 and 12 oz sirloin. The onion soup was not hot - just warm. Our steaks were... More

First of all, The Speckled Perch has no fish on its menu, it's a steakhouse. I also thought it odd that the decor seems to be focused on duck hunting, when the local sport is fishing on the Big Lake. Oh well, that aside, the Speckled Perch is a very down-to-earth steak joint, don't expect anything fancy, 'cause you won't... More

This restaurant is hard to find unless you know someone in town. This is down home Okeechobee, where you'll find local ranchers and just about anybody who's anybody in town. If you sit at the bar, it's dark, nothing fancy, but the rib eye will be too big for your plate! If you're looking for beef where the locals eat,... More

I was surprised to find out that this restaurant does not serve any seafood at all :o. I know that a restaurant can not serve speckled perch but I thought they would at least serve catfish or frog legs. The steaks and pork chops were good and the service was great. I will be back again.

Not sure if it was a one night thing but tonight the perch got it right. It's been a while but the food was great. 3 steaks cooked to the right temperature. 2 French onion soups that were as good as expected and service was great. Hope they keep up the good work.

Expensive restaurant, good food, beer in recreation coolers on the floor, no salad available. Maybe it had changed since our visit. It was a busy place with good steaks served with veggie tray.

Delicious Ribeye and grilled homefries. Just a little hole in the wall kind of place but I like those. Bartender's are friendly and the drinks are good. Pricing is fair too!
