Loved loved prior location in santee off Mast. The original location had memories of dather in law, engagement and many family dinners. The new location just isnt the same. If i drive out to lakeside ill continue giving it a shot. Food and service as good as usual.

Pinnacle Peak has been a staple steak place since the original location of Bradley/Magnolia in the 60's. Over the years, it was always my favorite place to go! The quality steaks, fresh beans, and sides were always appetite quenching!! My favorite steak is the Cowboy...back in the day, the Cowboy was the porterhouse cut, and Cowgirl was the T-bone. My...

First they moved from Santee to Lakeside. The restaurant is smaller. Nothing to buffer the noise. If this place was full, you wouldn't be able to talk to each other. Thankfully it wasn't even half full on Mothers Day..that should have told us something. The prices for what you got were high. 3.50 for a baked potato?? It wasn't even... More

Unfortunately, pinnacle Peak's restaurant has permanently closed. This was done several months ago to make room for some new development.sometime ago this was a wonderful restaurant but has failed drastically in the last few years. Sincerely, Brian Fulton.

I haven't been to the restaurant in many years but we went for a family birthday. The food was VERY good and the service was EXCELLENT. Siouxsie was very friendly, personable, and on top of her duties. She helped make it a really enjoyable experience. I had the ribs with no BBQ sauce and it was delicious!

I have been going to Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse for years and found out they moved to Lakeside. Went to give it a try and the place is super different. The décor looks like any other restaurant. Not western at all. You used to see the steaks cooking on the large grill and now you don't. I don't even think they... More

Very good place to eat. Very open atmosphere. Good selection of entree's that are fairly priced. Recommend the cowboy (or cowgirl) steak! They will be moving to a new location in the town of Lakeside. Wear a tie if you dare, but be warned - you will be making a 'donation' to their tie collection if you do. Very nice... More

The steaks are good, but the extras are lacking. The bread is boring, the salad just iceberg lettuce. Go for the steak only.

Was a long time fan and customer. It is with-in walking distance of the house. Used to take business associates there for a great steak and atmosphere. I have at least six of my neck ties hanging in the place. The last two times I took out of town relatives and friends there I was stunned by the deterioration of... More
