Really enjoyed this restaurant. Had the "daily special " baked steak, WOW what a large portion and very good. The wait staff was a little slow in follow up to our table but the place was very busy. I would definately go back for another visit because they are supposed to have very good pies.

My husband and I stopped here for supper. My baked cod was hot and tasty. My California blend vegetables were perfect, they weren't overcooked or mushy. My husband had the Sunday night special of all you can eat fried chicken. It came with the salad bar, plus sides and a roll or biscuit. The waitress asked if he wanted more... More

Husband and I were in Wapakoneta for a long weekend. We had read the reviews here about the Lucky Steer and decided to give it a try for dinner on the Saturday night of our stay. We got there around 7:30 and there were several tables available so we were seated immediately. Quite an extensive menu with many different choices,... More

"The Steer" as it is locally know is a great local joint to get an awesome meal. Breakfast is probably my favourite meal there, but their lunch and dinner selections are just as good. Love their homemade chips and their omelettes!

Was driving across Ohio at sunrise and stopped at the Lucky Steer for breakfast. Was kindly helped through the menu by Sarah, the waitress. For non-Americans, there's an entire new vocabulary to ordering a US breakfast. Biscuit is apparently a scone like bread; I still have no idea what grits are, and sausage is a pork patty. All good fun... More

This was a place the locals go. Full parking lot for breakfast is always a good sign Sassy waitress and a table of eye rolling farmers who love her Big amounts of a regular American breakfast made right and delivered quickly. Just what we wanted So much better than the national chains

It was Friday night and the place was packed. No place to wait for a table except in the dining room which was a bit uncomfortable hovering over other customers while the ate. We stayed, thinking it must be a great place to eat. The food was disappointing. The staff worked very hard to keep up with all their customers,... More
