We had a fantastic meal, great service and atmosphere! I had the filet and shrimp combo and my filet was melt in your mouth good! The smoked oysters on the salad bar is a major PLUS! We visited here 23 years ago and just now made it back but I remembered that salad bar and the food is amazing! Dessert... More

We came to the Peddler to eat for my sons birthday. It was wonderful. We had Chocolate Cake for dessert and waitress even put a candle in it. We did the call ahead seating and we seated in no time.

I had been here years before when my kids were small. We loved it then and love it now. They've always had the best steaks you can get. They will let you pick which cut of steak you want. Just love this place.

The Peddler has good steaks, great salad bar, prices high compared to others. Call ahead seating is terrible. After 15 minutes of busy signal and then finally getting through to get recording to call back later, physically went to site to get name on list for 3 hours later. Seated in side dining area, which is nice with windows, but... More

Group of 15, ended up being 17. Waitress took care of problem with no worries. Probably the best large group server I've ever seen. Polite , professional, and no mistakes. Peddler is a favorite , and will continue to be.
