A Local Favorite Since 1985


The Backyard Steak Pit is a dining landmark in Lake County. Our family happily welcomes guests to our steakhouse to eat, drink and be merry. At the heart of The Backyard Steak Pit is a one-of-a-kind charcoal grill right in the dining room.  Besides steaks and chops we grill to perfection, our menu features a wide selection of appetizers, sandwiches, seafood entrees and luscious desserts.

With a classic American Steakhouse cuisine, The Backyard Steak Pit provides a comfortable and relaxed setting for first-timers as well as our loyal regulars. Whether enjoying cocktails in the bar, a dinner in the dining room or hosting a private event, we strive to exceed your expectations.

We look forward to serving you!
