I'll start with a positive, everyone was super nice and helpfull. Food was no way worth the price and I've had better steak at a Ponderosa or Quincy's for $8.95. I've eaten a lot steaks and I'll have to say this was absolutely one of the worst. I don't believe the steaks they are dishing out would make the "on... More

Have eaten here multiple times since my last review a year ago. It just never, ever disappoints, and our opinion is as good as it was last year, it is even better now. My pork chop was the juiciest I have ever had and though not on the menu if you ask for the deep fried cod (my wife did),... More

I feel fortunate to live so close to a place that does steak this well. Very cozy and a great place to bring a date. I feel for the quality of meat you get it is priced fair. Fresh salad bar included with your meal and the Texas toast on the grill is a nice touch, I like to order... More

We dropped in for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was pretty quiet at around 5:45, but it picked up rapidly. We were seated in the west dining room - a long room with a lot of tables. We sat down and had prompt service. My wife had a martini, and it was fine. It was time to order... More

We were recently here with a business group. Felt welcome as soon as we entered the door! We enjoyed some good drinks and we both ordered ribeye. The ribeye was excellent. Couldn't eat it all ~~ have leftovers the next night! Even as leftovers it still had that awesome flavor!! We also enjoyed the chocolate-chocolate cheesecake. That was totally tasty... More

We had great service for our anniversary dinner. Our waitress Sarah was very attentive to us and came by frequently enough for drinks and food orders as well as during our meal. She asked if we were celebrating and came out at the end with some ice cream and sang with other staff. The steaks were pretty good for the... More

This is a true "on the river country steak house" at its best. Everything from my rib-eye to Kathleen's shrimp scampi to Paul's NY strip steak to Julie's gyros were great. From the bar to the table the service was over the top.

Whether it's a day trip from Chicago or a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Oregon is less than 2 hours away from Chicago and offers many outdoor activities. Its a great place to visit. The Steakpit offers amazing hospitality and awesome food. Specializing in steaks cooked over an open charcoal pit. We also offer a fresh fish of the week. We have a different fresh fish flown in every week. (Call and ask what our fish of the week is, if you are a seafood lover) The Steakpit has been a staple in the community for over 3 decades. We are known for our steaks but our menu has a lot more than just steaks to offer.
