Steak and Egg Eateries Not Going Away

Thursday, September 5, 2013

Rumors of the pending demise of Santee’s Pinnacle Peak Steak House and the Omelette Factory on Mission Gorge Road are premature.


Staff at Pinnacle Peak includes (L to R) Amber Rahlf, Sandy Wike, Toni Petroro (owner) Katie McBride, Anthea Cullington, Christina Nelson, Brian Hoffman, Amir Adieh, Stuart Pollmann

and Cody Bennett

The two restaurants on Mission Gorge Road are open for business and should continue satisfying hearty appetites for months to come.

Some folks have apparently misunderstood the ramifications of the City Council’s vote on Aug. 28 regarding a conceptual redevelopment proposal for two properties totaling 3.76 acres where the restaurants are located.

The headline in the next day’s newspaper said: “Two longtime restaurants on their way out in Santee,”  and, unfortunately, people got upset. 

The council’s action gave the property owner,  Hattie Davisson Properties L.P., permission to apply for a rezone from neighborhood commercial to medium-high residential  and authorized city staff to evaluate the request.

That action does not forecast how the council will ultimately decide the issue, it merely signals the start of a review process that could take up to a year to complete.

Toni Petroro, owner and manager of Pinnacle Peak, said she has assured customers she will find a new location if the rezone is approved. She’s concerned that loyal customers will think she’s closing and drop her eatery from their dining routine.

Pinnacle Peak has been in Santee the past 30 years and the Omelette Factory has been in business since the early 1990s.
