Been eating here ever since it opened. Food is always delicious and service is superb. It's always the place we go for special occasions or for a special treat. I know I have been going there for over 40 years. Never had a bad experience. Not many upscale restaurants in our area---but this one is perfect. Pricey---but I believe you... More

I grew up in Johnson City. I loved the old location. The food and wait staff were the best. Once the new location was built something changed. At first it was as good as the old location but then things started to change. The food was not as good. I moved away for a while but would occasionally eat at... More

This used to be a terrific restaurant. This had to be the worst experience I have had. We were there for a bridesmaid's dinner. I will say the wait staff was GREAT! I ordered the grilled scallops. The first one I bit into was cold. Needless to say, they weren't done. Sent those back. One of the ladies I was... More

Tucked away in Johnson City, TN is perhaps the best steak house around. If you love a great steak, the Peerless is the place to be. We have never been dissatisfied. The shrimp cocktail appetizer is mouth watering. This is our go to place for special occasions. Try it, you will like it!

Not sure about some of the negative reviews here, but I have dined at this restaurant for more than 20 years, and have never had a bad experience. Granted, this is Johnson City, and our restaurant choices are primarily the chain variety. This is an upscale, family owned and run place. The food is good, on the scale of a... More

Even though this place is considered a landmark in Johnson City, don't waste your money here. The prices are too high and the steaks are never tender

My husband and I dined here with another couple. We were seated promptly. The first problem was the inability to read the menu as it was really dark in the restaurant. My husband and I had the side salad which was nothing to shout about. Just a salad. We all had prime rib and it was good. Only offered one... More

Appallingly Bad. Yep I will say it. Horrible!! We mover to the Tri Cities returning to my wife's home town. She told me how growing up the Peerless was always the nicest place in town but her family could never afford to go there due to budget concerns. She remembered after church driving by and seeing the well to do... More

This is one of our more upscale restaurants in Johnson City. The steaks and seafood are very good. We do not think it is that expensive for the quality and amount served and our service has been very good. They have an early bird menu at 5pm and they have certain items available for that. We usually eat the seafood... More

I expected much more from Peerless. We sat on the restaurant for 20 minutes before being noticed. One server who wasn't in our section but was working very hard finally got us some drinks. Our server must have been new. She came to the table and said "sorry, they had me working the bar". Then she asked if we wanted... More
