Steitz’s is considered a landmark on the Chain O’ Lakes and has been in business since 1938. The third-generation, family-owned restaurant, bar, and marina is located conveniently on Bluff Lake in Antioch and can be reached by car or boat. This is one of the oldest family-owned businesses on the Chain.
Steitz’s offers a wide variety of services for boaters: cleaning, maintenance, storage, and more – all found on the marina page of their website. There is also an RV Park located right on their lakefront property covering 12 ½ acres of land.
The inside of the restaurant and bar area is covered in pieces of history from the years Steitz’s has been in business. It is a comfortable lodge atmosphere with a large dining room separate from the bar. The bar area offers video gaming with a view! The large windows at Steitz’s show off the best view of Lake Bluff on the Chain. There is also outdoor seating on the spacious deck that leads down toward the waterfront and the dock.
Steitz’s menu has American fare as well as homemade German cuisine. There is always a delicious Friday night fish fry and weekly specials. Signature dishes include the homemade Weinerschnitzel, the Ribeye Steak Sandwich, and Garlic Baked Shrimp. There is also a 50 ft. wrap around bar serving ice cold beer and dozens of cocktails to choose from, including a selection of German drinks.
Stop in at Steitz’s for a friendly atmosphere, great food and drinks, video slot machines, and hometown charm.
