My husband and I went for dinner to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. The waiter was helpful and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and unique. Overall Great experience!

The quality of steaks served along with the poor preparation are only made more unsatisfactory by the rudeness of their wait staff. Go to Logans or Outback for steak and don't waste your time with these snobby people.

I've had better steak for sure! Used to be a great place to eat but my last 3 visits, not so true. The only thing keeps me going back is the Grecian salad, fries and blue cheese dressing. Service was acceptable.

Came here Saturday Feb 11 and the food lacked flavor. I had the Steak Carbanara pasta and the steak was such a bad flavor that I could not eat it. My boyfriend has a NY strip which was good, but not worth the price of it. Too bad, because we were looking for a new regular restaurant for steak :-(... More

I usually love Peerless. The atmosphere is quiet, and warm and the soft lightening an usually excellent food and service has promoted this to be the go to restaurants for out of town company. But not this time. We had a party of 7 with reservations and were put in a back room ( which we had not asked for)... More

Lived in the area for over 4 years and have seen good and bad reviews for the Peerless. Decided to go for our 40th and was pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere. Quite a selection on the menu. Did the fried oyster appetizer, very good. We had the filet and prime rib and both were excellent. Mushroom side was very tasty. Overall,... More

We started our meal with the Peerless famous salads, always so fresh with house made dressings (I had their famous Grecian Salad) and we both had the Sautéed Seafood Medley (flounder, scallops and shrimp) - delicious! We love the Peerless and our wonderful memories there over the years.

We went to the Peerless last night for dinner, went in sat down to see new waiters and waitresses. Before I sat down, I saw Rich who has been there for a while now, and of-course he was very cordial as always. We ordered a meal which came and it was Surprisingly Really Good.
