The Steak Inn is the best place to have steak in this area. They serve a very generous cut for the price, and it is always very fresh. Their salad bar is also plentiful and they make home-made french fries. I would highly recommend, but go early as this is a very popular spot and they usually have a waiting... More

Great local steak house in very unique setting. Fun salad bar and a nice bar service. Varied menu with a good selection - we come here often.

Atmosphere and food are wonderful! I love the walleye dinner and the salad bar has many items to choose from. Nice gem in small Shell Knob by the lake.

I have eaten here many times since I am a local. The steaks are seasoned well as and cooked as ordered. The salad bar is small, but has good items including couscous, a large block of cheddar cheese you can cut off what you wish and VERY good blue cheese dressing. They have fish and chicken dishes as well. They... More

We went here years ago when the lobster tail was $40. Now it's $70. It was good, but not worth $70. And what's up with places serving lobster not understanding what "browning the butter" is? (Simply heat the butter on high to get it brown and oh so good!) Steaks and salad bar were good, server was crabby.

This was recommended to us in our cabin notebook and we were not disappointed! They have an amazing menu and are willing to combine different items to allow you to try exactly what you want. The steak and stuffed shrimp were amazing! My husband said the salad bar was great, but I thought it was pretty standard. Its a cute/converted/added... More

It's ok really the only steak place in the area which means it's a tourist trap. Salad bar has a big block of cheddar cheese big deal, that you could visit one time trip. Like I said just ok.
