I try to patronize local establishments when I travel and wanted to like Peerless, but must be candid. The dining environment was fine. Booths were reasonably private. Out waitress was a 3.5 out of 5. Not bad, but for a $75 meal for two was...More

OK, after traveling all over, who could imagine one of the best Ribeye steaks was going to be in Johnson City? I heard Peerless was a recommended restaurant so I already expected "good", but really did not expect "great". The Ribeye was not just great,...More

Wonderful food and service! The aged steak was divine; we were offered split lobster tails or cold water lobster in varying sizes, steamed or poached in butter. Very good Grecian salad; the steakhouse sauteed veggies were delicious. You absolutely get what you pay for here....More

Never disappointed. Been coming here since mid 80s. A relatively short time given it's history. Born in the 30s? Best King Cut Prime Rib ever experienced.

Had heard great things about this restaurant. Evidently it was from years ago. Seared scallops were too salty as were the sautéed vegetables. Prime rib was so so, initially overcooked , returned to kitchen & second time was better but still middle of the road.More
