Let $G$ be one of the groups $\operatorname {GL}(n,q)$ or $U(n,q)$, and let $H$ denote the subgroup $\operatorname {GL}({n-1},q)$ or $U(n-1,q)$, respectively. We show that the restriction of the Steinberg character of $G$ to $H$ equals the product of the Weil character and the Steinberg character of $H$.
