I was visiting in Handcock, MI and was recommemded to dine at Pilgrim River Steakhouse. My daughter and I ordered a $22 steak and shrimp meal. Both of our steaks were full of fat. I had rice with mine which was a bit hard. The four shrimp were the best part of the meal. The meal came with soup and... More

After a poor steak dinner in town a couple nights before, this was a truly nice surprise. Nothing great and not sure I would go here if it was in my town...but, the service was great. The steak was cooked perfectly, the wine list was decent. You get a lot of food...so make sure you go hungry or pack up... More

This is one of our favorites, with consistently good food and service. The prime rib is always good, you can't go wrong with the spinach salad, and the soups are always hearty and tasty. You get both soup and salad with your entree, so you won't leave hungry.

Low key dining with great food and service! Food was excellent and the staff very helpful. The place was easy to find and had parking - always a challenge when you get 80+ inches of snow by mid-December. The beer was good, the wine was good - dinner was not rushed - all in all a relaxed and easy atmosphere... More

It was a busy weekend in Houghton with Michigan Tech's Parents Weekend in full swing, so we felt lucky to get a reservation here at the time we wanted…prime dinner hour. And we did have a nice meal, but it just wasn't anything special. There were five of us…3 ordered the rib eye, 1 the lake trout, and 1 the... More

We were in Houghton visiting our daughter at Michigan Tech. We took her out to Pilgrim River for a nice meal while we were in town. The prime rib, both the roasted and grilled which was the special that night was very good. It was very tender and had a good flavor. The only gripe I have about this restaurant... More
