“Not what it use to be”

Back in the day the Perch was the best place around for a great steak. Now you can't fund a really good steak in okeechobee. Well I haven't yet found one

“Great Steaks, good service, old school family place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

I've eaten at the Speck many times over the years and they put out a nice piece of meat, good quality steaks, cooked right and priced attractively too! While the exterior isn't anything to write home about, don't be put off, the food is great and on Saturday night, the big seperate bar really gets going! If you find yourself in Okeechobee, swing by the Speck and have some red meat, you'll be glad you did.

“Good but not like it use to be...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

Have eaten there many times as a local. Still a good place to go but not quite up to the standards of a few years back.

“Don't let the outside scare you away!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

This place has a great steak. Although their are in a concrete block building behind a liquor store, they do a good job. When you get inside it is nothing special, but the food will make up for the lack of location and decor. If you are looking for a steak while you are in the area, this is a place you want to stop!

“Best Ribeye Steak in Okeechobee!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Wow! The ribeye steak was cooked and seared to perfection. A Perfect 10!!!!!
The restaurant reminds one of the great Wisconsin supper clubs!!! There are two rooms to dine in and a bar area with a juke box and TV. We chose to eat in the bar area and the bartender highly recommended the ribeye. Great service! If you want the best steak in town-come to the speckled perch--you will not be disappointed after a hard day of fishing on Lake Okeechobee. Our crappie fishing guide, Tim Gibson, highly recommended the speckled perch as having the best steak dinner in town. 10 stars ********** for the steaks and the price is reasonable, too!!!
