My husband had the ribeye and it was flavorful and cooked to perfection. The restaurant is located on the water at Back Lake and if you dine early the view are wonderful. The food was very good and... More

No where better to go for a nice relaxing dinner with large plates of very tasty food! Staff is very friendly and we were able to get in without reservations. Restaurant has a bar attached which overlooks the lake. If your in Pittsburg this is a stop that shouldn't be ignored

The food is outstanding, well prepared and tasty. The rustic ambiance with views of the lake complete the experience. The Rainbow Grill rivals any Five Star restaurant found in major cities.

We rented a camp near Back Lake for a weekend in the middle of September. The cabin owners highly recommended the Rainbow Grille so I made reservations for my husband and I to celebrate his birthday on Saturday night. I don't know that we've ever had a better dining experience. I wish it weren't so far from home!! The ambiance... More

We enjoyed our meal, we made reservations a month before as suggested for a Saturday night at 5:30 reservation. The whole meal was delightful. Appetizers delicious. Drinks good. Seafood fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend!

Terrific food up north, the location on the lake is breathtaking. Not cheap eats but if your looking for a great meal and friendly service check this place out.
