The Words from the (Manager): I am sorry but the thermostat on the grill is broken so the temp goes from High to Low and we have no control. So you are potentially you are serving a health hazard. That will be my next call. The servers!! those young ladies were awesome, The meal was a total disaster, out of... More

Between 4p & 6p, The Peerless offers an early bird special of buying one entrée, get another half-price. This is only for certain entrees but there's a wide selection to choose from. My husband and I both choose the 10 oz. prime rib. It comes with one side. We each chose a baked potato and I opted for a side... More

I took my wife for dinner over the past weekend for her birthday. the service was good, but the dinner was not as ordered. ordered two rib-eye steaks and received one rib-eye and one new York strip. the quality has gone...

In business since 1938 this is a formidable restaurant. The menu is comprehensive. Crab cakes with an outstanding remoulade, baked potato, slaw, hot rolls and a great local stout made for a memorable supper. Service, by a very young lady, was enthusiastic but not very knowledgable. Being called "Honey, Sweetie, Darling, Dear, etc" was trying. Even so, I enjoyed my... More

If you love steak, chops, burgers, and seafood then this is where you will get the best you ever ate. Their salads are always fresh & crisp with all dressings home-made. The menu is extensive and there is a full bar. Private rooms are available which seat up to 10 and are perfect for a special occasion. My family has... More

When I'm craving a good steak I know I can count on Peerless. Be sure to order the Grecian salad. All the steaks are cooked to perfection. This is a great place to take special guests, too. The wait staff are knowledgeable and service is simply top notch. Head on out to Peerless fog fine dining in Johnson City.

This was once the best restaurant in East Tennessee. My how the once great have fallen. The Grecian salad remains superb, but the quality of entrees has really fallen.

My wife and I have a love/hate relationship with Peerless. We like the food very much, especially the steaks, prime rib and the Greek salad, and we often run into friends there. The hate part comes from our experience with the wife of the owner (he recently passed away). She actually kicked us out when our girls were younger. They... More

We had a wonderful dinner. Hannah took very good care of us. We had the Grecian salads, filet mignon and baked potatoes. Everything cooked to perfection, topped off with a shared coconut cake. Great dinner.
