Use to be one in OC now it's known as Brodard Chateau. I thought the place was decent and the big open pit grill as you enter was awesome.


So that's what the other Brodard used to be; Thanks for that tidbit, Bill. We drove past the San Dimas location when on Route 66 the other day-it is a similar architecture. Yes, quite decent food here-still.

Like the old rustic look! Do you prefer this place to Black Angus for your steaks?


Nice story Cathy! Thanks for sharing.....


The other Brodard looks like a Tudor building.


For the meat, definitely Pinnacle Peak, Soo...but I really like the table side salad they make for you at Stuart Anderson's Black Angus. I'm also looking forward to some of the appetizers and sides at Pinnacle Peak. The atmosphere of the 'original (to us) location was so comfortable and unpretentious.
It was an unusual introduction to our new neighborhood, as well as a memorable Thanksgiving Day, Kirk. Sort of surreal, since we never saw the free meal event happen again.
Yes, I've seen photos of it, cc. I'm thinking the dark interior is part of the Pinnacle Peak business model...and maybe Brodard changed (or added onto) the architecture when they moved into the building.


Brodard made the place classy but I sure missed Pinnacle when it shutdown. Only place in OC for decently priced steaks.


Now that we are driving around OC on a more regular basis, I noticed there are few American style restaurants, Bill. Steakhouses are few and far between. Pinnacle Peak was taken for granted.

Nice post. Great stories. And steak. Thanks.


Thanks, Ed. A good steak used to be a standard meal, now it's such a treat.
