Enjoyed the dinner. The filet was well done with great sautéed mushrooms. The steed veggies could be better.
My waitress was friendly but a bit distracted by the bar responsibilities.
Overal a good place. Worth going back.

Went here after Naval graduation. We were looking for a steak place, but not a chain. What a great surprise.The food was excellant. The lobster bisque was fantastic. My husband and son's steak was cooked to perfection. Reasonable prices for a great meal.

The place is bigger than it looks and well worth a stop to eat there. Have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. All the food is good especially the ribs. There is a small bar that you can eat at as well or have a drink while you wait for your take out order.

Although it has been here for years, and so have we, we never think about the Backyard Steak Pit. And that's a shame. It's such a nice change of pace from all the chains in the area. A darker atmosphere (dark woods, dim lighting) makes it very inviting. It's the kind of place where you feel right at home, probably why it has so many regulars.Your meal includes the salad bar, which is nothing out of the ordinary, but still nice and fresh. My husband had a Ribeye and I had a Porterhouse. Both were perfectly cooked, with lots and lots of flavor. Although a bit pricey for the location, the food was fresh and tasty and we will definitely be going back because I've gotta try the ribs, the chicken and the BURGERS. They all looked wonderful! Oh, drink were great too. Awesome bartenders! Give it a try!

Gurnee doesn't have many family owned and operated restaurants, so it's nice to have the Backyard Steak Pit. It's been around for a while and has only improved. The salad bar, although small is filled with crisp, fresh vegetables. Even the salad dressings are homemade. I had the ribs and they were excellent, very meaty with just the right amount of sauce. My husband had the steak and lobster and his also was good. This is a place to go for a good meal. Although we went on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was full the service was very good.
