Try Our Famous
Sizzling Steak

The Lariat Steakhouse has been serving top-quality steaks and seafood to discerning diners for almost 70 years now. We are one of the original restaurants in Peoria IL, and can still remember when it was a “drive” to get to our place. We are now conveniently located in the heart of Peoria IL, close to hotels and shopping.

Famous for our juicy one and a half pound prime rib, hefty 8 ounce hand-cut fresh salmon, and lobster tail (all tail, which is the tastiest part of the lobster)…

Among many other cuisine specialties to delight your palate.


Our History

The Lariat Steakhouse was built in the 1940’s.

It passed into the hands of the Kouri family 30 years later. Now it’s managed and operated by Dan Kouri, with the help of his brother Kenny, and other family members and relatives.

Lou Kouri purchased the restaurant in May 1970 and his brother Ed joined the business six months later. Since then, the restaurant has undergone four major renovations. The business is now run by the second generation and the third generation is helping out as well. So we’re a true, multi-generational family-owned business, with deep and solid roots in the Peoria area. We are diligent, some might say obsessive…
