My boyfriend and I drove an hour and a half to dine here on Valentine's Day because we've always loved it. We assumed it would be busy, but had no clue it would be THAT busy. We embraced the wait, deciding that it wouldn't be the 2 hours that was quoted to us and realizing everywhere else would be busy... More

The only good thing about this restaurant is the above Boone standart service! The decor is so dated that one becomes nauseated! Salad Buffet is ok! We ordered 2 Filets and one was ok the other not eatable, looked like different cuts. The owner is even of going there since years not even able to wish a good evening and... More

Just, so not good. Dated decor, steak was so difficult to cut (ordered med. rare) that my fingers hurt. Server snatched my partner's plate away when he was nowhere near done (he was mid bite, i was mid sip) without saying a word. Totally rushed us out the door (we got there at 740 for an 8pm call ahead and... More

It's been years since I've dined there but I remember superior food and service. They're obviously still doing things the right way.

My husband and I travel over an hour to eat at the Peddler. They have the best steak and salad bar within at least 100 miles. Consistently great food and service!

This restaurant used to be a reputable steakhouse and it is sad to see what it has become. I used to vacation in Boone yearly during the early 2000 and always made it a point to dine at the Peddler because of the incredible French onion soup and the quality of the steaks. Today I returned to Boone after 10... More

We stopped in to get a good steak and we were not disappointed. The Peddler will come by your table and cut the meat right there in front of you depending on what kind of cut you choose and you will be asked how you like your steak cooked. The salad bar is included in the price and is always... More

I love this place. It is a trip back in time to a place where steakhouses had low lighting, friendly attentive staff, and a simple menu focusing on steaks. Yes, the salad bar is cramped in space, but it is the only salad bar that offers caviar, smoked oysters, and picked okra, not to mention a huge wheel of blue... More
