Fodor's Expert Review The Peddler Steakhouse
It's not every day you walk past an 80-foot-high tree that's one of fewer than a dozen in the world, to eat at a riverfront steak house comprising five historic log cabins. And it's probably just as unusual to have your steak brought table-side and custom cut before being sizzled over Texas hickory charcoal while you graze on hot homemade bread and items from the salad bar. Chicken, shrimp, salmon, and fresh boneless English mountain trout are also on the menu, along with desserts like hot blackberry cobbler or Peddler's version of strawberry shortcake. A casual atmosphere, full bar, and reasonably priced children's menu make this a good family option. Call-ahead seating is available one hour before opening.
