“I can see why the locals love it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012 via mobile

My family ate breakfast here while staying in Cherokee. It is located right on the road next to the river. The food was delicious and the price is great for what you get. The place was BOOMING with business, many locals eating here. Our poor waitress did a great job considering she was one of only three waiting on about 20+ tables during peak breakfast time. They only had two people cooking at the grill (you can see it when you walk in, just like a Waffle House). One cook was doing her job, the other was chatting with patrons at the bar. I would hate to see what happens during peak visitor season if the owner does not staff any better than he did today. Overall, food was good, it was clean and other than waiting a little longer than usual, we left full and happy.

“Definitley "a breakfast worth crowing about"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

This place is situated right on the river and has a few tables in the back that over look the river. The decor is a bit dated....well a lot dated, but the food is great. Try the backpacker pancakes if you are hungry. The servers are very friendly but they do tend to get fairly busy. They only serve breakfast and are only open until 2. Definitley worth trying.

“Best Breakfast in Cherokee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

I have been going here for breakfast every time I have visited Cherokee Harrah's Casino for about a year now. Have tried other places for breakfast and none compares to Peter's. Prices are reasonable and staff very friendly. I recommend to try this place if you're in Cherokee!!

“Good Food - Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

The food was a lot better than one would expect. I wouldnt say this should be the Number One restaurant b/c it is a value breakfast place. With that said,

1) Breakfast was Great!
2) Price was Right for the Food

I do agree with other reviewer that servers were more focused on regulars/locals and maybe need some polishing up on service skills -
example - You will have to ask for lots of things - like refills - where most places they are automatic!

“Not good”

The food was bland and had no taste, our server was not overly effective nor polite...except with the locals.
