Okeechobee Steakhouse was founded as Okeechobee Drive-In in 1947 by the Lewis family. In 1974, son Curtis Lewis changed the name to Okeechobee Steakhouse to align itself with the restaurant’s main dishes and showcase the establishment as a true steakhouse. True to its roots, Okeechobee Steakhouse is still located in its original location. The family selected the once remote, wooded site as its location because the original Mr. Lewis predicted correctly, eventually everything would have to move west of downtown West Palm Beach.
This three-generation business takes pride in their legendary service and unforgettable hospitality, ensuring that traditions are continued. The Lewis family believes in their staff and trains everyone from the ground up. Their daily goal is to continue the impeccable service and preparation that the establishment has been providing for seven decades.
