Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse’s new owner offers unique dining experience in Antioch

By Allen Payton

Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse has been serving up homemade hand tossed pizza in the greater Sacramento area since 1987. Last year Pete’s expanded with a new location in Antioch with a few partners, including Jasminder “Jaz” Kaur. Having experience in the hospitality industry, owning a hotel and RV park for the past 16 years, she decided to buy out her partners and has taken the reins of the restaurant.

Jaz wants residents to enjoy a unique dining experience in Antioch, with the best architecture, atmosphere and ambiance in town, and most importantly the best food. From their signature and build-your-own pizzas, salads, like the delicious Pete’s Steakhouse salad, soup of the day, pastas, burgers, sandwiches such as their tasty hot pastrami, flatbreads – the Mediterranean is a favorite, and appetizers like their unique Famous Knots.

“Customer service and keeping people happy is our focus,” Jaz said. “We encourage everyone to join us for lunch or dinner and experience Pete’s, again or for the very first time. We’re sure you’ll be back.”

They’re currently offering lunch specials for just $6.99 every weekday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.: Half Sandwich & Soup on Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Wing Wednesdays, chicken strips and fries on Thursdays and a personal pizza on Fridays.

Pete’s also offers 46 beers on tap and a variety of wines to go with their great food choices, which can be ordered to go, or enjoyed on their outdoor patio next to the fireplace.

Located at 2709 Hillcrest Avenue, off Larkspur just off the Highway 4 on- and off-ramps, near County Market, Pete’s is open every day 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. For reservations call (925) 522-2222. For more information visit their website at and “Like” them on Facebook.

    She has to do a whole lot of improvement for me to ever go in there again. Have everything that is on the menu. speed up service, educate the wait staff, have better food and make sure it is hot when it gets to the table. That is just the beginning. Good Luck!

      Wow – it must have been bad. The worst is hiring. No one knows how to provide customer service. The problem, the younger generation only knows how to relate to a phone or computer – people are a whole new concept. Good luck on taking over. Keep it fresh and simple.

      • used to be a regular says:

        Make sure the restaurant is open the posted hours. We went at 8:15 one night — the sign on the door said it was open until 9:00pm. The doors were locked, the chairs were on the tables, and the lights were off. There were a few people sitting at the bar — the woman who was tending bar ignored us when we tried to open the doors. We went to BJs instead that night and had a delicious dinner, great beer, and great service. We WANT to like Pete’s but your employees need to do their part.

      • Just a thought says:

        Follow the lead of Tender Greens, Tomatina, Lemonade, True Food or Jack’s Urban Eats. They have fast, simple concept. You order at counter and take your seat. This eliminates the need to interact with those complete dolts. Yet, the focus is on the food and that’s what Antioch needs. We can all tromp on down to Appleby’s and Outback but to get good, real food is another story.

    Been there. Food is nasty to mediocre. Will never go there again. sorry Antioch but way better places in Brentwood or Concord in regards to taste, quality, and money.

    Wait staff is terrible. Asked about beers on tap and answer was “I’m not a beer drinker”. Had to discover what they had on tap by going to the bar myself. Waiter never came back to the table. We left after 20 minutes. Incredible.
