I am glad I gave this place about a month to simmer in my brain before I did this review. I walked out of there.....well, let's say a little confused. Though I had seen the menu online, I was still not sure what to expect. And after leaving, I think I was still a bit in the dark. But let me say, it interested me enough to definitely go back sometime.
Knowing that Peter D's is definitely associated with the ownership at Demo's, I had to quickly get it out of my head that it was the same good food for a good value as Demo's. It is hard to not and try to make comparisons. But let's face it, it is their goal to give us a completely different experience in a locally created restaurant that has the feel of larger chain restaurants.
The restaurant from the time you enter with the pennies on the floor is interesting. The fire burning. The whiskey barrels hanging. They are doing what they can to put you in a certain environment. We sat at a booth by the wall. I was facing a direction where I did not see a lot of the restaurant well, so I will have to definitely try to sit somewhere different next time to get a different perspective.
The menu is unusual. My girlfriend and I decided to get an appetizer ("Get Things Rolling") and then share a sandwich. We went with the Nachotizers with Buffalo Chicken. I was not totally impressed with the dish as I didn't get much chicken. The blue cheese on this was potent at times. Let's suffice to say that this was interesting. We then shared one of the "Hand Held Cows", the Panko Crusted Blue Cheese Burger with fries. This was a big burger. The blue cheese was literally panko crusted and fried and placed on the burger like it was a tomoto or something. Very tasty and interesting. After leaving Peter D's, I had a strage taste in my being. I think it was because of all the blue cheese. Next time, I will not order that as it seemed to "fire back."
However, I have to note one thing on the menu. I did not get it, but a dude at the table beside us had what I think is called the "Three Pigs and a Chicken." This was the largest sandwich I had ever seen. Pork chop, bacon, ham and an egg on a bun. Heck, next time I go I just want to order it so everyone can go "what the heck is that?"
One issue. I had read that coke products were provided in the tiny 8 oz. bottles, so I opted for water as we had been to Uncle Dave Macon Days and was very thirsty. Little did I know is that they gave you an EXTREMELY small glass with ice. Then they brought you a small glass container to fill your small glass. It was like they brought you this and you were playing at a little kid's tea party or something. Come on Peter D's, give us a real glass of water. This might look cool, but it is sooooooooooooo impractical.
So my honest assessment. When I left last month, I didn't have any intention of going back anytime soon. As time has transpired, I have softened a bit. I want to go back and try something different. And maybe this time I can go in not trying to compare Peter D's to Demo's.
