The food is what you would expect in a pub. They have a nice variety to choose from and the service is good. The beer selection is wonderful. For hard core beer fanatics this maybe your place. You can even settle in for the long haul and have your name painted on the wall where your name colors will change... More

My rating of very good is driven by the beer selection (I don't eat there very often) Pete's has a rotating draught beer menu that always has lots of great options. There is also a beer club you can join (try 100 beers and get your name on the wall.) The beer is always good. The food is standard bar... More

A really fun and friendly place with really good food. The club sandwich is yummy, also the BLT and salads. Always a bustling place with locals.

Have been going here for years, have never seen the brass rail, car wash or Pete, but have always had a good lunch at a good price. Hubby and I share the Fried Zucchini and split the Fish and Chips, let's not forget to add a glass of Pliny the Elder if it's available. The place can get noisy and... More

Like to go in the warm weather when we can eat outside. We find it much too noisy to eat inside. Like the very causal atmosphere.

Couldn't get my car washed or find Pete but I found Danville's best burger selection and craft beers. What a great place to hang without any pretentiousness. Th plastic surgery brides tend to steer clear. Just honet food and honest service an a fun crowd. Just go a little later if you want to avoid the younger kids.

A fun place to have a salad on the front patio and watch the world drive by. Good food, lots of noise and tons of beer!

I've been going to Pete's for over 20 years. You won't find a better spot to meet friends or enjoy a family dinner in an entertaining and enjoyable environment. Servers treat you like family. Good food and great beers. Not for you if your looking for a quiet, low key dining spot.
