They even let us leave our table during the fireworks show, then when we came back, they re-warmed my son's steak!

We arrived after the fireworks on the 4th, it was late but we were promptly greeted and able to sit outside. The crab cakes & spinach salad were delicious & the cheesecake is a must have. Great food, service and the atmosphere was elegant but casual. Would recommend and will return. Thank you for a great experience.

When we are in Big Bear, we make a point to have our "special night out" at Peppercorn Grille. It has never disappointed. A lovely ambience with cheerful, gracious, attentive waitstaff, and excellent food. Reservations are definitely necessary on the weekends! Only 2 things could make it nicer........a dress code that required collared shirts and long pants AND warm bread!

We had pizza and an apple salad. They were both very good. We got the chicken pizza with pesto sause. We shared it with a salad and still had left overs.

Very good food and service in an upscale environment. This is as close to fine dining as you will find in big bear. The menu has unique dishes including steaks, seafood and some wild game. Prices are a bit steep but worthwhile for an occasional nice dinner.

I liked this restaurant. The wait staff was extremely friendly. Their food was good and it was right in the middle of the Village.

We came here for a Thursday night dinner. The service was very friendly and attentive, but unfortunately there was really nothing impressive about the food. It was pretty average. I had halibut with a mango salsa and fresh vegetables. The vegetables were not fresh, but the fish was all right. I would come back and try the burger, but otherwise... More

We had to wait a little for a table even though we called ahead to get our name on the list, but it was worth the wait. The service was excellent and the food was amazing.

My husband and I had lunch here on our last trip up to Big Bear Lake. We both had the Apple Walnut Salad, it was amazing. It was one of the best salads I ever had and the portion is HUGE. Their Apple Honey dressing is delicious and I believe house made. Our server was awesome as well. We sat... More
