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

We were six people and four of the meals were cold or cooked wrong when the meals arrived. The prices are on the high side for what you get ($$$$). The beer was reasonable but the mixed drinks and the wine by the glass was way over priced.

This restaurant really surprises me. We ate here 2 times in the last month and seriously considering never coming back. This should be a top notch restaurant, but in my humble opinion I do not feel it lives up to its old reputation. The fajitas was the worse my wife ever had. They do not understand how to prepare these.... More

Had not returned to Peerless in about a year. Ordered filet & Grecian salad. Both were super. Unfortunately, my wife and friend had the ribeye - these steaks were below par. Service was very good - once they realized we were there. Food still seems to be "hit or miss."

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.
