We decided to dine here after growing tired a low quality dining options. The food was great (minus the "Mac n cheese" on kids menu). Service was great. However, it's certainly not welcoming towards kids. My little ones are very seasoned restaurant diners but we received several looks of disappointment from host staff and other diners for eating here. My... More

We were only in Big Bear Lake one night and decided on The Peppercorn Grille based on lots of good reviews, and we're so glad we did! This is a lovely little place, and some of the best service we've had in a restaurant. Friendly, helpful but not overbearing - it really made our evening. This is a classic grill... More

It is nice with really good food but their prices sort of outshine the food and atmosphere. Every time I think of going again I remember the bill from last time

I live in Big Bear Lake and have had opportunity to visit most of our local restaurants. The Peppercorn stands tall above the others. An excellent menu with an outstanding presentation for your meal. The service is outstanding and the food is outstanding. You will not only be pleased but will be adding the Peppercorn to your favorites list.

Went to Big Bear, to escape the heat and because it was my daughter's birthday. We had been to the Peppercorn Grille before, so we decided to try it again, this time with a baby. The staff was very accommodating.The decor was pleasing. The initial wait to be seated was quoted as 20-30 minutes. It wasn't that long. The food... More

I made my reservation 5 days in advance and totally worth it. While we were there, you could hear people walking away saying they weren't going to wait an hour. The service was impeccable. Everyone was so polite and curtious. We were even given a few pointers of what to do this weekend in Big Bear and dead on. Perfect... More

Very nice atmosphere inside and outside (lovely sitting outside under the heat lamps). First rate food and service. Can recommend the warm bruschetta, rib eye steak dinner, and whole wheat pasta with vegetables. Large portions.

This establishment is excellent. After arriving late into town we were dying for something decent to eat. A lot of the eateries were closed or closing (it was around 9pm) and the great concierge here seated us without hesitation. We ordered the reef and beef which came with soup and vegetables. It was cooked to perfection and tasted so good.... More
