Peer-reviewed and scholarly are terms that are often used interchangeably, but they do mean different things. View the videos and resources linked to this answer.  In the HELP section of each database, you may find how the term is defined for that specific database.  For instance, CINAHL recognizes four different types of peer-review; while PubMed does not provide a way to limit to peer-review.  You can also go to a journal's website and view its Instructions for Authors or Editorial Review policy.
