Back Again to the Peddler

We had a wonderful dinner here on Sunday January 11. This is the time to eat at the Peddler. I called ahead and got a table at 7:20. We got there at 7:00 and were seated immediately. No crowd! The service was excellent. Agnieszka was our server and she is great. We ordered prime rib and it... read more

You HAVE to get the steak and shrimp combo if you like shrimp. The steaks are always great, but the grilled shrimp is the best I've ever had. If you call ahead, request river seats. They are certainly worth the extra few minutes wait that you might have.

I had heard about this place for years but had never been until a week ago. I found it just so so. There were 4 of us in our party and 3 of us got steaks. I found nothing special about the food. So I was disappointed. It was crowded and the decor need updating and refreshed. Doubt that I... More

No complaints, steaks are juicy and cooked to perfection. And the salad bar is amazing. Service was fast and friendly, but not rushed. They also cut your steak of choice at the table.

Would recommend asking for a table by the River always. This is a very busy restaurant and if you are not in the back by the river, the atmosphere can become a little tiresome. But, if you can sit with friends and enjoy the rippling water while dining it is a very pleasant experience. Salad Bar is Outstanding. . .... More

Great cuts and delicious stuffed potatoes. The steaks are a little bland sometimes, but the potatoes and salad bar make up for it.

If you like a steak cooked your way go here. It may be crowded with a waiting list but it's worth the wait. It's clean with good staff. I could go on forever about the food. All that needs to be said is try it for yourself.
