The service and food were both atrocious. Four of us walked in shortly after the place opened. There were 2 other tables occupied. We ordered our dishes and waited and waited and watched as others received their dinners, ate and left. We received our lettuce and a tomato wedge dinner salad and then it was a waiting game We asked... More

This place is deceiving from the outside. It looks like an old warehouse from the road. With the name being Speckled Perch, we thought there would be fish on the menu, but there was not. The menu is fairly limited. The salad was lame, but the steak we ordered was great! We had the 12 oz. ribeye. Tender and tasty!... More

The New York strip was good, not the best that I have had. Service was okay. They stick it to you on brand name cocktails $11.00 for a Beefeater martini.

We ate there two days in a row. There were four of us one day and five the next. T Bone and ribeye steaks were the choices. They come with two sides and all of us selected potatoes and salad or soup. First, the steaks. They were cooked exactly as ordered. The steaks are great quality and cooked without MSG... More

The name is deceiving - there are no fish on the menu. But there are different steaks and chicken. Absolutely delicious - steak was perfect in every way!

Casual atmosphere, short menu but outstanding rib eye steaks. Nice grilled flavor, baked potato, crisp salad and veggie appetizer with dip. Great service even though they were packed for Valentine's. Weird name for a Steak place, but food was great! We would have ordered a dessert, however there were many folks waiting in line for seating.

Very small menu. But, it is a steak house. Steaks are what they serve. Seasonings are amazing. No steak sauce needed here. I always have tidbits and potato. They always have a couple of desserts. Most are homemade pies. Yum! I go about 1 time a month. A local favorite.

Visiting the speckled perch is worth the trip from Chicago. The steaks are seasoned to perfection! A perfect stop for fisherman from the Midwest in the winter!
