Pinnacle Peak Steak house is a cowboy themed restaurant attracting local residents’ attention around San Bernardino with its cowboy décor, steak and reasonable prices.
For over 40 years, Pinnacle Peak has been serving steaks to generations of loyal customers.
“We are famous for our cowboy steak and T-bone steak…we also have amazing deserts,” said Pinnacle Peak employee, Tina Evans.”
These steaks are not only attracting local residents, they are also attracting some students.
“I asked for recommendation and they told me to get the T-bone steak. It tasted very good and the steak was a generous amount,” said student Ruheng Zhao.
“I ordered a ribs and chicken combination. I thought it might be some chicken and ribs, but it has half a chicken in this combo. I cannot finish it by myself,” said student Wenyu Jiao.
Pinnacle peak has a funny policy that says “NO TIES WILL BE ALLOWED.”
This tradition began when they first opened.
A customer came into the restaurant wearing a suit and tie.
They took offense (wanting to keep the atmosphere casual) and told the customer “Either you take off that tie or we’ll cut it off”.
The customer did not heed and was appalled when they cut off his tie.
Thus, the tradition began. In upholding this tradition, they have cut off tens of thousands of neckties from unsuspecting customers. People can find them in the rafters of the restaurant.
“This place is easy going but not when people wear ties and dress up. So we make them sing, and cut their ties hang out on the wall. It is very good,” said Evans.
They provide dining services such as birthdays, wedding receptions, anniversaries, retirement parties etc.
The banquet room can accommodate 300 people and it can play slide shows or hold band performance.
“We always have family meetings here. People bring their horses and the kids can ride it. Parents can also enjoy the food and they can see the kitchen through the transparent glass to know how their food is being made,” said Evens.
“If we have a meeting, I would think about this restaurant. The atmosphere is good, people can enjoy the meeting,” said Zhao.
People who are over 21 can dine at the bar and engage in conversation with the staff or better enjoy the performance they provide at night.
They also do happy hours both at lunch and dinner.
Lunch is from 11:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday thru Sunday, and dinner is 5 to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
They have two restaurants, one is in Colton and other one is at San Dimas.
Located at 2533 South La Cadena Dr, Colton, CA 92324, the restaurant hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday, except Thursday and Friday they close at 10 p.m
