Came for a good steak..

Steak was pretty good, I'd say I was more impressed with the homemade soup. Will return again. No issues. Prices were mediocre.

I was brought here by my new employer for a lunch with the staff. Everyone got a different kind of salad, and they were delicious. I personally had the salmon salad and would highly recommend it.

NYE, had a 7PM reservation. Seated @ 7:30. Not a big deal as it was NYE after all. Steaks were fine as was the rest of the food. Service was fine even though she was quite busy. My issue was after dinner when we moved to the bar for a drink and catch part of the MSU vs Alabama game.... More

This is an excellent restaurant. If you visit Houghton, you have to try this restaurant. Their steaks are the best.

I tried this restaurant when in the area for business in February; I was back this week and thought I'd visit again. The food was even better the second time around, in addition to being a great value for the money. I highly recommend Pilgrim River and I look forward to going back! I had the choice of the lounge...

Tasty food, nice atmosphere, and good service. We had the T-bone steak, New York Strip steak and the shrimp & linguine. All very good and filling, well cooked and not a long wait. Also, no TVs in the dining room! That's unusual nowadays. I hate eating out at a nice place and there is a TV blaring in the same... More

We were looking for a decent place to eat after leaving Keewenaw Peninsula. It was busy so it took a long time to eat but the food came out in courses and was well worth the wait. The prime rib special was 12 perfectly cooked ounces and came with soup, salad, bread, potato or rice and an amazing dessert. I... More

Had the prime rib. This was the best i have had in years. Lately it seems prime rib is overly fatty. Of course there needs to be fat in prime rib but when its 50% of the serving, forget it. This had just the right amount. It was cooked to perfection. The spinach salad with hot bacon dressing was wonderful.... More
