Love this place. Food is great and atmosphere is unique. Shrimp and grits are delicious. Steaks are great as well.

My wife and I ate at Peak City Grill and Bar last night. Our waiter was very pleasant. We ate upstairs in a very comfortable dining area. My wife had the roast shank and she thought it was wonderful. Matter of fact she liked it more than the Chef and the Farmer's pork shank. I had their are scallops. It... More

My husband and I have had several delicious meals for lunch here, thus the 3 star, but for dinners they fall short of good service and decent prepared food. We decided to have dinner there with our visiting daughter who wanted to take us out for a great evening. Short story, I ordered duck and it was raw! Bloody raw... More

I am so sorry that your anniversary was a disappointment to you. I am aware of the problems with the lamb chops and, though I know the manager had them brought to your preferred temperature, it still should have been right the first time. I have no idea what happened with your reservation--we have an electronic system and you should... More

This past weekend we had to travel to Holly Springs, NC for a family wake and memorial service. Not a fun weekend by any means. After checking in at the Hampton Inn we inquired about a place nearby to eat. After several chain restaurant recommendations the receptionist suggested the Peak City Grill and Bar. She said "it was a little... More

Found this on trip advisor. And glad we did. We were passing thru for a funeral. I had sheepshead special with a wedge and wife had seabass. We both liked our dinner. Great spot friendly people and good service. Park across in public parking spot

Third or fourth time I've eaten here. Clam chowder is excellent, but pass on the shrimp & grits. Scallops I ate last trip were excellent. Service is just so - so.

Steve--I am sorry the Shrimp & Grits were not to your liking. It is tough for me to tell if that is your personal taste or if something about them was wrong. In any event, I am glad you liked our scallops (from a previous visit) and I agree that the clam chowder is always excellent! Thanks for coming and... More

If you don't want to cook on Thanksgiving or certain other holidays than Peak City is the place to go. They put on a fantastic buffet 3 or 4 times a year that appeals to those who don't want to cook. All the food you can think of. Turkey of course, ham, roast beef, a number of sides and salads,... More
