“Good food with a good view”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We try to stop in at the Steak Pit for dinner when we're in the area. The food is really good (although pricey). My steak last night was prepared exactly as I ordered it. The salads are good too, with lots of greens (not those iceberg lettuce salads that so many restaurants serve). They bring about 6-7 different dressings to your table with your salad. I've seen complaints in other reviews about the atmosphere or decor, but I personally like it. It's a supper club, and it has that supper club look and feel. The place is clean and comfortable and seems well maintained. The restaurant overlooks Chequamagon Bay. Very nice view! The service is friendly and attentive. We like it and as long as it's still around, we'll be back next time we're in town!

“Average ”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Been here three times, the service and view are greAt. But the price is way too exspensive for the food. The steaks are no better then any other average place, last time there they screwed all
Our orders up in regards to rare well done and medium rare. Too Pricey for just average food.

“Good Service, Cook ok, Steak fair.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Atmosphere is great. Went for Birthday. Had pleasant meal but, was not happy with steak. Did not really feel it was the cooks fault but rather the quality of the meat. Ordered medium rare rib eye steak was cooked as asked but was very chewy. Thought cook could have trimmed some fat because there was a lot. Also had shrimp egg rolls, they were good and the sauce is very good. The bread that comes with the meal is very good. Salad had quite a large selection for dressing. Dessert, strawberry short cake was good but a little dry. Will order sea food if I go there again.

“Great View, Great Service, Great Food...”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Dined here last night for my birthday. We stumbled upon it and took a look at the trip advisor reviews and decided to go. The waitress was told that it was my birthday so the fantastic server, Diane, brought a birthday balloon to the table. Then we had a great greeting by Diane as she explained the menu and specials. She had a great attitude and zest for life and one of the best waitresses I have ever had. We had a great seafood, ribs, and chicken meal and the food was plentiful and good. Prices are very affordable. They could even serve me a pina colada which are very hard to find in the apostle islands area. Then as a special treat on my bday, Diane brought a cupcake with a candle in it, The cupcake was actually more like strawberry shortcake. Amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant and ask for the server named Diane.
