Good but very expensive

Peel is a very high end place in Edwardsville, but great for special occasions. Their food is good, but expensive for what is served. If you have a special occasion, or are just looking to go out to eat, this is a good place. Expect a wait, they are usually very busy.

I live out of town, and have been wanting to eat at Peel for a couple of years. They don't take reservations and the place is small, so always a long wait. This time was a Friday afternoon so no issue. First a great selection of draft beer both local micro brew and unique ones. I like the Kona Longboard... More

Great food! Pizza and wings both had unique and wonderful flavor. Casual attire was okay. Will return with friends.

They have their priorities. I look forward to going out to eat super bowl Sunday because there is no crowd, the fact they were closed then and open on Easter is reason enough I dont have to eat at this snooty restaurant again.

My husband & I stopped here for lunch - amazing! We each had a pizza & side house salad. Salads were so very good, and were a large size. They are tossed with dressing but it was just enough to give it flavor without being anywhere near soggy. The pizzas were SO good. I had the buffalo & my husband... More

Finally tried Peel Wood. Very good pizza. Fresh ingredientes... mango tasted like mango. A little skimpy on the jerk chicken. I did not find the jerk taste as very pronounced. The pizza was spicy. Beer was very good, and very expensive! $10 for a glass (less than a pint). I did get a shock with this. Ask before ordering.

I have loved Peel for a while now, but I recently had their Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese and it's without doubt the best Mac & Cheese I've ever had. I think it may just be my new favorite food. Other than that amazing dish, the pizza is terrific too. I recently had one of their brick oven sandwiches and... More

Lots of beers on tap to choose from. Delicious salads and awesome pizzas - including a "flavor of the day". Desserts are good as gourmet.

I do love their pizza, appetizers and desserts. However, it is a bit expensive for what you receive. We usually go for special events, rather than everyday. Another consideration is their seating. In several areas long benches run along the wall with tables set along. Some people do not like sitting so close to people they don't know and feel... More

I love all their food, but they did not eliminate my favorite: the wild mushroom chicken lasagna. I constantly craved that, but it is off menu now. It is quite noisy inside, but the service is good and the food makes up for it. The new spaghetti and meatballs do not even come close to the chicken lasagna.
