My husband I enjoyed a great meal. The service was good and the drunken scallops excellent.The presentation very professional. The bar was filled with patrons having dinner.

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

Good food, but a bit overpriced. Some of the staff are not as friendly as I'd expect, especially from an establishment located in the lovely town of Apex NC.

We are sorry to hear that you felt the staff was not welcoming and you found the food overpriced. As I am not sure the specifics of either, it is difficult for me to respond.

Amazing pastrami on pumpernickel sanwich. Sweet potato fries were also amazing. Service was excellent too.

Thanks Mac for the great review! We make that pastrami in house! Keep coming back and try us for dinner sometime as well, if you haven't already. And if lunch is your thing, I encourage you to try the "Not Your Mama's BLT". It is my favorite sandwich on the menu with fresh roasted turkey breast, Lingonberry preserves, and bleu... More

We have had a few wonderful experiences here. Welcoming staff and owner, delicious creative items like the shrimp hush puppies. Somewhat inconsistent but never bad, just not always stand out. A bit pricey, but can be a great experience and meal.

Thank Christopher S
foreverforward, Owner at Peak City Grill & Bar, responded to this review

Thanks Christopher, for your nice comments. We will certainly work on the consistency--though the next time you're in, please provide me with some specifics. It is a large menu and we definitely are aware of the need for consistency in everything we do. I like to know where we fall short in that respect. We look forward to your return! More

We were in the area running errands, and decided to stop at Peak City Grill and Bar for lunch. We've been previously, but it was many months ago. Today we opted for sandwiches, and they were delicious. I had the Chicken Salad on Sourdough with homemade chips. My hubby had the pastrami and swiss on rye. Both were excellent, and... More
