When people remember the past, it’s fairly common an outstanding restaurant or eatery comes to mind. Those are not so easy to find. I’ve heard several positive comments about the former Steer Inn restaurant. It was a steakhouse located along State Road 15 just north of Silver Lake in Kosciusko County. Steer Inn may have been part of a chain of restaurants. I’ve seen references online to restaurants of the same name located on the East Coast and Pennsylvania, among other locations. Another reference I saw said it was in Silver Lake from the 1960s through about the early 1980s. If anyone knows for sure, please let me know. Note the words “fine foods” on the sign, a remnant of the restaurant still standing. I’m not sure what the building is used for now. A once fine eatery that may have fell victim to the proliferation of fast food in America.
