Petes Tavern and Steakhouse

Love the steak salad there. Hubby gets something different all the time and enjoys whatever he gets. Great prices. I would call for reservations on the weekend. Just in case.

A coworker and I went for lunch. He ordered a cheese-steak, I ordered Fish & Chips. I also ordered Mozzarella Sticks as an appetizer. I was busy walking around enjoying the nostalgia, old movie posters, 45 vinyl records, metal signs, jukebox, etc.. When I returned, I THOUGHT they brought the Fish, but didn't see the Chips. I was wrong, these... More

Good sandwiches, nice breakfast, great value. (Do not confuse with Pete's Tavern in Hamilton which has a bar.) I'll be back.

This great restaurant has fantastic lunch items, cheese steaks, pig wings, burgers, and specials every day. Great quality cheese steak sandwich and the price can't be beat. Great portions too!

This is your typical "Cheers" type bar. Many locals. Even though I'm local, their locals are even more local. I don't know how their steaks are, but their wings are pretty good. I ordered the hot with the double hot sauce on the side.. They sent the wings with the double hot sauce instead. I like hot spicy foods, but... More

I usually visit Pete's when I go to visit family in Trenton. They moved to a bigger location with a full bar. Feels more like a bar atmosphere with a few dinner tables rather than the old Pete's that was like a small diner with an open grill where you could watch the magic happen. I think the menu has...

We live in town and have visited on a number of ocassions. The breakfast is normally verygood, with the service always attentive. My son's favorite is the New Jersey standard pork roll egg and cheese sandwich.

Went to Pete's because they will serve eggs at midday. The bacon was tasty and crisp, eggs were supposed to be over easy, but were patchy brown crusted. Potatoes were raw. Seemed a very long time before food arrived and it wasn't busy at all. Very pleasant wait person. Okay experience overall, but I won't rush back.
