Not worth it! – Peak CIty Grill seems overpriced for the quality of the food. Our cream of broccoli soup and lobster roll starters were good as was the ice bleu wedge. After that, not so much. The 10 oz. porterhouse pork chop was more like 6 - 8 oz. It was also very dry and a little tough. The sides are sold a la carte for $4. They are not served a la carte and for the prices of the entrees, the sides should be included. The asparagus came out and there were 5 pieces on the plate. The sirloin steak was well prepared. We dined upstairs and it was so warm and uncomfortable, we could not enjoy our meal. The bread served before the meal was tasty. For $84, I'll go elsewhere next time. Sorry!
Not worth the $$$ – Keep in mind we went on a Tuesday night....not a weekend. We were originally informed by the hostess it would be 20-30mn before we were seated. After 50mn I asked the hostess how much longer to which she responded "you're the next table". No problem. After two more tables are seated I approach the hostess station and the manager tells me those were reservations waiting to be seated (still doesn't explain the 1+hr we've been waiting). The one brightside is the bartender saw our frustration and comped some drinks. Ordered steaks which took 30+ mn to arrive. What was suppose to be bone-in steaks have no bones. Waiter's response to this is "huh, guess you got the wrong steaks". Nothing is adjusted on our bill. Bottom-line is I could think of better places to spend $100 and 3hrs of my time.
Will not be going back – This restaurant should be good. It is beautifully designed and decorated and even with great outdoor space. Unfortunately, it is over priced with terrible service and so-so food. Latest experience, will be last. Asked for items several times without ever receiving. Advertised specials were not available. New menu is weird and not tasty. I'm not surprised, as this has been the 'norm' for this restaurant for awhile, just disappointed. I want to like it, but I've completely lost faith. I'll be surprised if it is open May 2011. Try any other restaurant on Salem Street for a better experience.
Incredibly Poor Evening – I made reservations for the first time with this restaurant. My time was 8:00 p.m. on a Saturday night. We arrived at 7:50 and were told that our table would be ready momentarily. Finally at 8:30 we were seated and that was only after standing in front of the hostess demanding that things hurry up. When we were seated, we were beside a table of 20 who had young kids that were moving from seat to seat. The prices on the menu are not cheap and had this place been a burger joint, I would not have minded the atmosphere at all. However, for these prices, I think more consideration should have been given to our seating. I did not stay to order, leaving after we had eaten our appetizer. If you want to go just hang out a drink a beer, this place is fine. If you are looking for a nice intimate dinner, stay away by all means!
Overpriced, poor quality – Small portions and poor quality food. Lousy service. My meal was prepared incorrectly.
My steak was overcooked and too tough to eat. i just paid the bill and left. Went down the street for some great pizza.
Save your money and go somewhere that really cares about food preparation and what the customer wants.
i see this place out of business in about 6months.
One of my favorites – This place has changed for the better in the past six months ! I remember it was sorta slow and ritzy last Spring, but the last time I went there there were a couple of great dinner specials, even a free wine tasting that night, and a very *friendly* staff. OK, so they took a little long to get my second drink...Anyway I heard from the bartender that they now have a new head chef and he is GOOD I have tried several of the new dishes ,, wow!. so I love going there now especially for stuff like a getting together with a couple of friends looking for a place we can actually hear ourselves talk and know we can get what we pay for.
Questionable substitution – On Friday, April 10, four of us went to Peak City for dinner. The food and service was good throughout the evening until dessert. My husband and I ordered a tawney port. What was brought to us was dark purple and very grapey in taste, NOT a tawney. I questioned the waiter, who took my drink back to the bar. When he returned, he said, the bartender says we have no tawney port so gave you a port and did not think you would notice! I could not believe that he admitted this, but at least the waiter was honest. This made us wonder about the bartender and owner.
Pretty pathetic buffet – My family and I just went to the Easter Sunday brunch buffet. Half of the buffet was emptied out of food, and never got restocked. Prime rib was sliced as thin as sandwich meat. We paid over $20 and felt like it was worth $8.95. Lots of low priced items, grits, potatoes, muffins...well what was not already emptied! Could have done better at any other restaurant for a fraction of the price! There were no busboys, so hostesses were cleaning tables, at a very slow pace...we waited almost 30 minutes for a table when we had a reservation. This place really falls apart when they get busy!
Easter Brunch – Similar to Golden Corral, except for the lack of efficiency and good food. The workers were trying but they were way over their capacity to effectively serve customers. Long lines, empty buffet trays, below average food, high prices. They probably made a killing on Sunday, but lost many potential long term customers. Very disappointed and I won't be back.
Great Service Great Food – I came in Monday for the first time. I ate dinner at the bar since the dinner room was busy. The bartender I believe his name was Patrick was very friendly and knowledgeable
of wine and the menu. The food was excellent I did not except to find a place like this in Apex. It is certainly a hidden gem.
