After numerous visits to steakhouses across the Peoria area in the past dozen years I find my husband and I always returning to The Lariat. It offers other great main dishes too, the catfish, pork chops to only name two cannot be equaled. Anytime we want to have a nice group celebration or a quiet dinner for two this is... More

If you want the best steaks in town, Lariat's has it. I don't go there very often as it is quite pricey. However, the quality of food justifies the prices. This steakhouse is conveniently located and has ample parking space. It is usually very crowded, so it is best to make reservations to avoid a long wait in their lobby.... More

This family owned Steakhouse is so amazing with all it dinner choices. It is hard to find any place that serves better steaks, chops or fish. If you're not a meat lover no worries try the pastas or salmon they are unbelievable. Go there for a special celebration or a big group either way you will be well satisfied and... More

I know this is a steakhouse, but I decided to get the ribs and they were good! I prefer "knife and fork" ribs that I don't have to pick up and gnaw on, and the meat fell off the bones. They told me that they cook them all day, and I believe it. I also had the French Onion Soup... More

Sent to celebrate grandma birthday. Food was short of terrible. I ordered a Ribeye medium rare. To best describe, it was blubber and was not cheap either. Grandma ordered fried chicken, it was a thick coat of batter with overcooked chicken. Wine was expensive. Apothic red available at Walmart for $7:99, was at $28, that is a 200+% hike for... More

We spent a day in Peoria and wanted to finish it up with a steak dinner. Looking through the list of steak places, we settled here. Upon arrival, it seemed that there was an issue seating us without a reservation. The hostess disappeared to the back of the restaurant twice. We deliberated leaving and I joked about getting the table... More

A group of lady friends met for lunch at the Lariat Club. Everyone ordered some sort of a beef sandwich. All 10 lunches were a big disappointment. The beef was dried out and tough--no matter which sandwich we ordered. We all agreed never to return to this place. Server did not check back with us to see how the meals... More

The Lariat used to be a special place, the kind of place executives gathered for meetings, and dates looked into each other's eyes while the metal plates sizzled louder than their love. Returning after a 20 year move out of town, I found the restaurant less than half full on a Friday night, more families than adult diners, and an... More

I went with a group of family and friends for New Years Eve. We started off alright getting our drinks. The real problem started with the food. The waitress was very rude and getting things like refills took forever. When the main course arrived, which seemed to be an eternity, my fathers medium was 5 minutes short of being beef... More

The Lariat has been a Peoria staple for steak since the 1950's. The original interior area is pretty much just as it was 60+ years ago. It has been expanded several times but I must say has never lost its base, which is, in a word, steak. My wife had a small filet, I had a top sirloin as did... More
