Service is great. Rarely ever need to wait to be seated and even if we do wait, there’s a nice bar to enjoy a drink. Salad bar is excellent and food is always delicious!

Blackhawk Steak Pit is our favorite place to dine when staying at White Pines. Across the Rock River from the Blackhawk Statue, you are greeted with a slice of warm almost garlic toast and every entree comes with either a mashed potato or wild rice...More

We all had excellent meals. My rib eye was done to perfection! The desserts were to die for. I had an excellent craft beer. We will definitely be back.

Enjoyed the layout but felt the prices were to high for what we were served. Plastic tablecloths not so nice and salad bar could be way better for the price of the meal.

Were traveling the back roads of Illinois and stumbled on the black hawk steak pit and were so glad we did. The entrees were excellent, something you wouldn't expect when you first walk in.

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.
