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

We had a meeting of about 20. We all ordered off of the menu. The service was above average and Mercedes did a wonderful job of taking care of all of us. My steak was a wonderful surprise. I was going to take a picture of the plate, but was not thinking of pictures when it arrived. The size was... More

The food at Lariat was just amazing. The location is unique in that it feels like a combination of both modern and classic. It is definitely a favorite of the locals as it was very busy when we arrived, but we were able to get right in. Our server took great care of us, and, since we were there for... More

Not overly impressed with the food, but if you are looking for a great option on a place to host a meeting or event, this should be on your list. Staff is really nice to work with and cost-wise it's impressive.

Went to Lariat Steakhouse with a group of about 15 people. The sampler appetizer was very nice! Loved the shrimp!! I ordered a rib eye steak grilled medium-well and it was perfect! Service was good. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family!

Last time my salad was almost wilted. The Parmesan cheese crumble, that I always look forward to, was STALE and chewy. Very disappointing. The server just said she was sorry and did nothing else.

If not for the attentive, helpful, patient and courteous service by the waitress Joann, I would have rated this restaurant even lower: the main course (grilled tilapia) was bland, tasteless and even looked very unappealing (to say the least). I had to ask the waitress to change apple sauce because it wasn't edible. Clam chowder was pretty good, though. The... More

Went here for our anniversary dinner (#48) using a gift certificate. We used to eat here YEARS ago for special occasions and have not been back for several years. We were not disappointed in any way. Our waitress was super nice and helpful and answered all our questions. The steaks were outstanding and done to perfection. We ordered filets and... More

Been here 4 times now (every time I've been in Peoria) and every time has been absolutely fantastic! Great atmosphere and even better food. Will come back my next visit to Peoria for sure!

I had not been to the Lariat Steakhouse for a long time. Recently, my husband and i were looking for someplace different in Peoria for lunch. The first visit I had the grilled tilapia and it was fantastic. This time, I tried the fried tilapia. It was wonderful. I also tried their homemade potato chips. Both times, my husband had... More
