best good steak, affordable price, exceptionally friendly food, bad service, warm salad, not like great steak, not romantic meals
Attention: budget minded steak lovers.. This place is for you, huge slab of t-bone at a very reasonable price (under $20 dinner). Granted, can't compare their steak (sub prime meat) with the premium steak houses', but for the prices you would pay, nobody should complain. Order steak and not much else. My wife's pork chops (good size tho) were way overcooked (very dry), so stick with steak and you should be fine.
Definitely worth the trip.... Loved it! Service was excellent! The order for one person in our party was delayed so the waitress said she would bring her something to nibble on in the meantime - and brought her a baked potato and and half rack of ribs! My "Cowgirl" (Porterhouse) steak was tender and delicious. The sides are no big deal - but the steak is definitely worth the trip.
Go home satisfied. I have been going to Pinnacle Peaks in San Dimas since 1964. It is one of the only restaurants from which I come out satisfied. I always think I won't be able to eat it that big of a steak, but end up eating every last bite because it is so good. The price, however, has gone up tremendously in the last few years. I do think that if they are going to charge these prices, they should have a better selection of side dishes.
Ok so the sides are not to die for,but the steaks are delish.
The steak portions are generous portionsand the price is reasonable.
DON'T BOTHER. We had seen on Food Network what a great place this is. So when I moved to CA we tried it. What a HUGE disappointment. The steak was ok, but the sides were ridiculous. The salad was wilted and only had tomatoes and generic dressing, the sides weren't anything I would even want, and the service was bad. Our waitress was rude and they don't accept Discover Card. I don't know if anyone has heard of Lone Star, but if you have one near you, try that instead. Better food, better prices, better atmosphere.
I have eaten at all four of the Pinnacle Peak restaurants in CA (Colton, San Dimas, Garden Grove, and Santee), as well as two in AZ. The CA restaurants and AZ restaurants are different owners but same style and quality. I have found slight differences in the atmosphere, but the food, service, bar, and price brought me and anyone else I could bring back again and again. They only serve dinner, open at 5pm, and you can watch them cook the food over open flame grills with real mesquite coals.
Anyone that doesn't like the food either doesn't like meat, or wouldn't like a great steak if it bit them.
It is definitely worth the drive. (We try to get there before 6:30 pm). Reservations are not accepted.
cheap price cheap quality. We dined there couple of years ago. I can't believe this place made it among top 10 steak houses in LA. If size of the serving is the single most important factor to you, then this place is for you. They have huge size steaks for very cheap price, but that's all there is. Quality of food is way below average. My wife ordered her steak well done and I ordered mine medium rare. We couldn't even tell which one was which since both were same as rubbery.
Aged meat, too aged 4 us. The steaks are aged way to long for me and my Wife's taste. Sorry, as we wish we could eat there, we have tried 3 times, but their aged meat we can not eat. Just our personal taste. Every thing else is great about the place.
A Great Steakhouse. Definitely at the top of all the steakhouses on my list. The food has always been excellant, as is the service. So what, you might have to wait a little while for a seat. Go early if that's an issue. It's worth the wait.
BEST STEAK EVER. I've sampled numeous steakhouses all over the world during my many years of travel and the finest steak and service that I have ever encountered was from Pinnacle Peak. I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good steak. Be sure to tell your friends to wear a neck tie when dinning there, it makes the event more memorable.
