Year after year diners enjoy the reasonably priced steaks, ribs, chicken, and sides that have kept Pinnacle Peak as popular as ever. In a Pinnacle Peak signature tradition, if a guest is 'caught' wearing a necktie the tie is summarily cut-off with great fanfare and hung from the rafters.

Metro Restaurants - Our exhibition kitchen features delicious prime rib, pork chops and chicken roasted on the wood-fired rotisserie. Enjoy quality food thatís great to eat and fun to watch on the rotisserie! Gourmet pizzas from the wood-fired brick oven are a Metropolitan Grill specialty.
