We have been coming to the Peerless for years. Every trip has been a huge success and it's a lot more affordable than these reviews are letting on! The menu offers a huge variety and things always come out perfectly. You'll miss out if you don't give this place a try. There is a reason that it's been such a... More

I ordered a cheese burger and my wife ordered chicken tenders. Perfect! I eat here at least once a week. The staff is great.

We try to catch the early bird special when we go here because it's pricey. Steak is their specialty, and I've never been disappointed with mine. It's always grilled to perfection as it was on this visit. My only disappointment was ordering asparagus, and the serving was 4 spears. I won't do that again. You can't go wrong with the... More

I had heard mixed reviews about this restaurant and decided to give it a try at the urging of a friend. Location is good, and atmosphere was very nice. Wait staff friendly and tried to help. I ordered the lamb and was informed by my server that the lamb was "tough" and they would not recommend it.....I asked if this... More

We set in the back large dinning room. It was awesome. We were the only ones back there. The service was great and the food is always good. We love the Peerless. Great place for a date night.

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
