Great Steak!

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!

We had dinner here during graduation weekend, which may have been why it was so noisy and the service was inattentive. However, the food was good and the portions ample. There aren't many options in Houghton so I would give this a second chance.

This steakhouse should close its' doors. The prices were off the board for the area and the quality of the food was poor. The waitress was also bad, snotty, gruff, lazy--you name it she was it. I can't fathom a person that works for tips would be so nasty but she was. When you have a business in an isolated... More

Stopped for dinner with our daughter a Tech Student. Device was very friendly and quick. Great timing on appetizer salad and entree. Restaurant was clean and well lit. French fries are some of the best I've had in a restaurant.

I eat out all over the world. This was the best porterhouse I had in years. Better than the sixty dollar steak in Houston a few weeks ago. Loved the spinach salad too with bacon dressing.

The food and service always excellent but a little pricey for the area. A great place for a romantic dinner, celebration or business dinner.

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
