The Pell City Steak House is a landmark restaurant on U. S. Highway 231 in Pell City. It opened in 1948, and was bought by Joe Wheeler, its current owner, in 1967. It seats 175 for lunch and dinner, and serves no alcohol.

Along with Wheeler, other long-time Steak House employees include waitress Barbara McBurnette, who came on board in 1967, kitchen manager Shirley Posey, who started in 1969, and cooks Peggy Robinson, Elaine Sanders and Ruby Smith, who all started in the 1970s.

The restaurant's neon sign is shaped like a T-bone steak. The interior is decorated with Wheeler's hunting trophies.
