If you want a great steak, this is the place to come. Either come early or if you go at dinner time, you might have to wait a short while, but it's worth it. Really nice inside, but a little dark...that's ok, it's romantic! Wait time on food is about normal....Enjoy!

Best steak place in the area. Super nice decor and great service. Parking is not paved space is plentiful. Reservations for dinner are a must.

Great Service! When visiting Houghton, we always take our son, who is a student at MTU, out for a steak dinner at Pilgrim River Steakhouse. Tradition.

This restaurant was wonderful! The service was great, and the food was fantastic. It is a little pricy, but well worth the cost.

Completely by chance, I ended up here twice..once for lunch, and once for dinner....on the same day during a recent business trip. In both instances, the meals were good, and the service was very good. For lunch, I went with a buffalo chicken salad, which was excellent. The salad was large, and the bufffalo sauce hot, but not overpowering. I... More

Stopped by this steak house on the way out of Houghton. It is very casual but does not lack for attentive staff and welcoming hospitality. I had a soup appetizer, the sweet and sour cabbage soup, that was very flavorful and hearty. I followed up with a small fillet, baked potato, a generous sized slice of chocolate cake. All accompanied... More

We had a delightful evening here with our family. Not many restaurants in Houghton will take reservations for a large group. We made a reservation for eight the weekend when students were reporting to Michigan Tech. Glad we did as we walked right past many hungry folks who hadn't thought to make reservations. Good steaks and sides. I liked my... More

We had dinner at this roadside steakhouse following a visit to Isle Royale National Park. The fare was fairly standard steakhouse material, apart from a gargantuan and fascinating mixed drink incorporating ice cream(!) that served my wife as both dinner beverage and dessert -- we've forgotten the name, but it was unique to Pilgrim River and vastly better than it...
