If you're looking for everything from a massive burger to a hefty steak, pizza, pasta or a grilled seafood dish, you'll find it all at The Quest in Schererville.

For the last two decades plus, The Quest has delivered a menu strong on comfort food recipes, popular entrees and sandwiches. Live entertainment has long been on the agenda as well.

The restaurant was established by Sabena Poore, whose mission is to cater to the local dining community with fresh, homemade fare.

"One of our slogans through the years has been it's a family (running the restaurant) and not a chain," Poore said during a past interview.

The Quest's menu, which features much to peruse, stars a variety of goodies from a full page of appetizers to burgers, sandwiches, steaks and chops, pasta, seafood, chicken and more. Daily specials are also featured.

Items that have been popular with local diners through the years include The Quest's famous Monster Stuffed Burger, which is filled with a choice of mushrooms, onions, green peppers, pepperoni, jalapenos and cheese; Baby Back Ribs; Stuffed Mushrooms; and cheesecake which is billed as Millie's Homemade Cheesecake, made exclusively for The Quest.

During a recent Saturday lunch visit to the eatery, we chose a half slab of ribs ($14) and lemon pepper salmon ($12.95) as our entrees.

Our meal began on a satisfying note with The Provolone Wheel ($7.95), considered a signature items at the restaurant, as well as a cup of homemade beef vegetable soup and a dinner salad.

The Provolone Wheel proved a decadent but flavorful choice as it was seven layers of melted cheese hand battered and served with garlic bread and a sweet marinara sauce.

The Quest's ribs were tender and falling off the bone while the lemon pepper salmon also received a thumbs up at our table.

Among other items starring on the restaurant's menu are Bruschetta ($6.95); Calamari ($8.95); Jalapeno Bottle Caps, ($1); Center Cut Pork Chops ($15); Smothered Steak ($16.95) Stuffed Eggplant ($13.95); Smelt ($12.95) Smothered Chicken ($12.95); Italian Steak Sandwich ($10.95); Stuffed Hot Dog ($5.95); Whitefish Sandwich ($8.50); and much more.

The Quest now serves breakfast on Sundays, which is available from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
