The Peddler has good steaks, great salad bar, prices high compared to others. Call ahead seating is terrible. After 15 minutes of busy signal and then finally getting through to get recording to call back later, physically went to site to get name on list for 3 hours later. Seated in side dining area, which is nice with windows, but... More

Group of 15, ended up being 17. Waitress took care of problem with no worries. Probably the best large group server I've ever seen. Polite , professional, and no mistakes. Peddler is a favorite , and will continue to be.

Love this place!! My 3rd visit & every time it has been great. All friendly staff. Always keeps drinks full & plates cleared. Well worth every penny & the wait! We always call ahead. Highly recommend!

This is the best place we ate at during our stay. The atmosphere was great, they had a fantastic all you can ear salad buffet, and the steak was cooked perfectly!

Great experience but for the price--not really worth it. Glad we were able to experience once but really just average to me AND need to update restaurant to be considered fine dining. Salad bar is excellent but I am thinking Salad bar at a fine dining establishment?

The food here is amazing. You do pay a hefty price for amazing. The servers were very nice. I wasn't impressed by the "peddler" he was kind of gruff. Otherwise they have great food and an expansive salad bar. Do the call ahead seating to avoid the wait.

The salad bar here was the only thing that was even remotely decent! The service was awful and the food was grossly undercooked. We will not be back.

Went on a Saturday night and used call ahead seating. But were not seated until an hour and a half past the time we were given. If we hadn't been waiting with such a nice group of people, we probably would have left. So I suggest you think about NOT going on a Saturday night, especially one so close to... More

Made our 20th Anniversary very special! The atmosphere, the service, and the food were all incredible. Didn't know if they would live up to the hype, but it was above and beyond my expectations!
