Great food - Friendly service

Found this restaurant after our mainstay restaurant in L'Anse was closed. Really a nice restaurant and was glad to find it. Food was excellent, drinks were great, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Would go there again!

Went at 4 on a Friday. We were only one of four groups in the whole place. No one seated us. One surly employee responded that we could sit anywhere. Then, the three waitresses ignored us for 15 minutes as we sat without water or menus. After 20 minutes we left.

Great atmosphere, great restaurant, great staff. Steak of course is their specialty. Somewhat pricy but worth a splurge. Love their tenderloin and ribeye. ... and carrot cake.

Can't go wrong with Pilgrim River Steakhouse. Excellent sandwiches, salads and dinners. But my favorite is the burger (although they call it by a fancier name). It's grilled to your liking, huge and comes with their delicious homemade fries. So good!

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.

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!
