This was our first visit and it was good. This is a 70 year old, country, un air conditioned smokehouse. As a Texan, I judge BBQ that can stand on its own without sauce. Peebles did a fine job. We ordered chopped beef sandwich platter...More

The restaurant is very rustic, three of us had ribs and they were very dry, tasted like they’d been cooked awhile, the little bags of bread were quite stale as well. Everything else was ok.

We found this place in between games at a soccer tournament at Lake Myrtle Sport Complex. It's been there for 70 years for a reason. Definitely worth a stop.

Great food but if you want fancy restaurant this is not it. Restaurant is very small and run down but the food makes up for it

Had lunch at Peebles in October. The BBQ ribs and pulled pork were great. The staff were very friendly, but a bit slow serving people. I would give this place 5 stars based on food quality if it were not for the building being horribly...More

I love this place. I moved out of Florida about 4 years ago. I was down for a visit and made my way to Peebles. Fantastic BBQ in an old Florida setting that you can't experience anywhere else. I live North of the Mason Dixon...More
