I swore off the a Peerless a year and a half-two years ago. Lackluster food and lackadaisical service at best. Terrible! Tonight, my wife begged me to go to the a Peerless so she could a burger and salad. Against my best intentions I agreed to go. I got my socks knocked off. The service was great and very professional.... More

Walked in on a Friday night, the server was attentive but the food took a while to be served. Once we got it, it was very good.

We used to eat here and always enjoyed it. Hadn't been in awhile, took some colleagues for dinner. 4 people and a $331 bill for food most of us put in to go boxes. One of our guests noticed a strong taste of lighter fluid in his steak. For the price the quality just wasn't there tonight.

Went based on a locals recommendation. Glad I did. Filet was cooked perfectly, sides were good just not great. Sat at the bar and received good service. Bartender was helpful. It is a bit overpriced but for value received it was better than a lot of similar places.

Went to the Peerless for a casual dinner with wife. I had wedge salad (very good vinegerette) we then split an entrée and baked potato - very good. We ate in the bar area and were waited on by Ben who was friendly and attentive, but not suffocating. Total bill was $25. I have been to Peerless many times and... More

This place was supposed to be one of the best in Johnson City, TN. I visited the place few times; it was overpriced with low quality service. It seems that the management thinks that this place is the best and people are privileged to let them eat there. When I asked regarding making a group reservation for a rehearsal dinner,... More

We went there a couple of months ago to find out he had changed the menu and really raised prices. Jim worked had to build this place now, Gary is trying to make it like Knoxville and it is just not there. We went back after not going for a couple of months to find the menu the same as... More

We were told this is the place to go in Johnson City. A little pricey but great for special occasions. We tried it wasn't real impressed. So we tried it again, don't plan on going back.

The hostess(es) greeted us in a friendly manner. As we were being taken to our seats, some guy, who did not introduce himself or mention his position, asked us [essentially] if we felt we were being properly helped. The thing that bugged me about this interaction was the fact that he did not look us in the eye when conversing... More
