We love Pete's. Great burgers and fries. Very good service. Great downtown Danville location. It's a bit loud inside but some call that lively. There are tables out front on the patio when the weather is nice, this is the place to be. It's family friendly. It's one of our go-to choices when we are downtown.

This place has been around for years, and is still a great family spot. Tons of sandwiches and salads, plus daily specials include soups, sometimes Mexican or Italian dishes, and rotating beer taps. You can track the beers you've had and get your name on the wall. Bar available with TVs. Large tables available. Best part is you can substitute... More

Pick a seat, enjoy a brew from one of several taps and relax browsing the extensive menu of "good eats." Enjoyed the rib eye au jus with a side salad and fries. Good portion, good flavor & great bun. Better than expected at a reasonable price = value. Friendly, fast service. Enjoy the communal tables or grab one for yourself... More

Pete's always deliver a great experience - the food menu includes something for everyone at very reasonable prices while the beer menu is the jewel in the crown. They change it daily - sometimes twice - and always have a wide range of beer types plus the occasional "brewery takeover" where all beers are from a single brewery.

A co-worker who knows I love fish and chips, recommended Pete's Brass Rail & Car WASH for fish and chips. She said they are the best and I can see why. They serve large pieces of fish and great tasting chips to go with the fish. I now have a new favorite place to come for my fish and chips... More

Great spot for beer and burgers. No long wait and the food was good. Love the garlic fries and flank steak sandwich.

Great beer selection, good service and food. Outside seating is very nice but there is ample indoor seating if weather is (unlikely) unsuitable for outdoors. Very effective waitstaff and a good selection of salads, sandwiches and side dishes. If you really love beer, this is the place for you. Coming from the Pacific Northwest I am appalled by the limited... More

This is a fun, gregarious, somewhat loud, active place to eat in downtown Danville. The food is good and reasonably priced.

This restaurant is a casual fun sometimes noisy place with everything from the classic burger to mexican selections and in-between some great fried/steamed shrimp selection. Prime rib is a Friday night special. Service is great with waiters and bus people working well together. Excellent at turning over table. They have an outdoor patio to enjoy in great weather.
