“A quaint roadhouse”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is a quaint roadhouse located on hwy 49 between Nevada City and North San Juan. Because it is not close to much of anything, it has had a hard time making a profit. It is currently under new management after being closed for an extended period of time. A good place to stop for a beer on a hot afternoon dayl.

“Great food, great service, great value, rustic ambiance - back to the "good old days!"”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

We first visited Peterson's Corner on our way home from staying in Downieville CA - just up the road. Now we make Peterson's Corner a destination. We've never had a bad meal.

They are very friendly, the restaurant has a bar and pool room for casual eating and a dining room for more family oriented seating.

We visited them on St. Patty's Day 2012 and when we walked in, they immediately offered us appetizers (for their St. Patty's Day celebration). We ordered the beer cheese soup and a reuben with onion rings - they were absolutely great and there was so much food, we took half the sandwich and onion rings home. And when we received our check, we were very pleasantly surprised - it was less than $15 and we had ordered a Coke too.
