Great local pub and restaurant. Love the bar pies and burgers. Low priced bar drinks and always great service. Busy on weekend nights but there are lots of tables and wait times mive fairly quickly.

We stopped in recently to our favorite spot, and I tried the SOTD Artichoke & Asparagus soup! I have to tell you, I've always be a huge fan of the daily sausage soup, but this was so awesome, I am trying to get a recipe for it!! Just about the best steak sandwiches, bar pizzas and all food on the... More

We had an occasion to be in the area and did not know of any place to have lunch. We just happened to drive by Pete's and decided to try it out. Upon entering, we could see that this was a "local" favorite - for the time of day, there were many customers. At first, it seemed just like any... More

Overrated. Nothing special about this place. And, It's not a "steakhouse", from what I've seen. More of a pizza and cheesesteak place. The only difference between Pete's and dozens of other similar places is the availability of beer.

Good food and VERY reasonable prices. After being seated we waited at least 15 minutes for our waiter. Once she came by she was good though the food came out fairly slowly. Don't go to Pete's if you're in a hurry. Plan to have a drink and enjoy the company of whoever you go with and you'll be fine. Oh,... More

Cheese Steaks and Fries! There's a cheese steak with bacon called the Margie Sandwich. My fave! A quick lunch on a snowy day is just the ticket at Pete's!

I've been wanting to try this place for years but never had the time. Tried it for the first time today and I was pleased with the food. The place has that 50's decor and the waitress's are very friendly. The amount of food they give you is worth the price. Will definitely try to come back again.
