“Easy bike ride from MTU”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We used it as a destination on our bike ride. Just cross the highway and enjoy some lunch. Pick up the bike path at MTU and head east toward Nara preserve.

“Great place for a large group !!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

WE arrived in the Houghton area about 6:30 p.m. on a Sat. night. We rode past the Pilgrim River Steakhouse on our way into town and noticed the parking lot was quite full. We could also smell the food cooking and after a days ride we were curious about the supper club. We were with a group of 19 on motorcycles and were looking for a good place to eat and we found it here. At our motel they had a menu for the Pilgrim River Steakhouse and that was all it took.
They got our group in at 7:45 and the service was top notch. Even though they were quite busy. Drinks were very good and after they arrived the waitress took our orders. They have a very nice selection at a very fair price for a supper club in a vacation area. I had the baby back ribs, They said in the menu a plate full and they were not kidding. You also got a very tasty french cream onion soup and a spinach-bacon salad and warm bread. My wife had shrimp and she said they were some of the meatiest she had ever eaten.
Everyone in the group was very pleased and I'm sure we will return the next time we visit the area. It is a GREAT place with a wonderful north woods atmosphere.

“Always reliable!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Steak caesar is my favorite. Great atmosphere for casual, north woodsy dining experience. Good for lunch or dinner with friends or guests. Can't go wrong with just about anything on the menu

“disappointing”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We went to this restaurant on a Sunday evening, and there were only about 6 cars in the lot. there was about a five minute wait for the hostess to show up and finally seat us. The soup was outstanding, and we probably should have stopped there. The spinach salad was mostly limp spinach rather than fresh appearing. The waitress did not know much about either the beers or the entrees. Specifically, she did not know the difference between the two fish entrees on the menu, or what type of seasoning was on them. The fish I ended up getting was somewhat fishy tasting for a fresh white fish. Overall, OK but would not go back.

“Great Dinner and Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My husband and I just had a great dinner at the Pilgrim River Steakhouse. When we arrived the hostess was extra accommodating and went out of her way to make sure we had the best table possible. I ordered the Salmon Salad and Turkey Noodle Soup and both were delicious. My husband had a steak dinner and it was cooked perfectly.Our waitress was a pro in very way. Topping it all off, the atmosphere was super comfortable and inviting!
