The Peak City Grill & Bar is owned by local Apex residents Julie & Steve Adams.
There is much more to the grill than the current building. It has a rich history, which began with its construction in 1905. One of the bricks in the wall is stamped with the date “May 8, 1905”. The bricks at that time were made on site. The building has served as a hardware store, a general store, and a feed and mill store. Mules used to be sold in what is now the parking lot. It was built and owned by the Seymour family, still local to Apex, until purchased by the Adams’ in 2004.
The church pews which provide the seating for the large booths are from a 100 year old church in Warrenton, North Carolina. They were sanded down from years of accumulated paint and varnish, and then covered with a “paprika” stain and polyurethane.

Peak City Grill & Bar
Fantastic, chef crafted food in a magnificently restored turn of the century (19th) hardware store. Fabulous granite bar, great art work, 16 ft. high original tin ceilings, and incredible food! Full service bar to complement all dining options.
Excellence & charm since 2004
The current look is the work of a restoration over one year in the making. The original tin ceiling is still in place, with beautiful wall treatments and faux finishes by local artist Michelle Ishihara.
Only the best ingredients for our dishes
Our menu changes frequently, so we can provide fresh ingredients in our seasonal dishes.
