The service was outstanding, the meal was outstanding, and the price was normal. I cant think of anything I can say that needs improving. Maybe our servers memory as I had to remind her I ordered a glass of wine(lol). If in Big Bear, you have to go here.

This place is a beautiful Big Bear style upscale restaurant. It's an upscale restaurant that is in a outdoor/mountain setting. The restaurant decor is elegant but still reminds you that you are in Big Bear. It's classy enough for a romantic dinner, but casual enough that you can eat with friends and have a good time. The service is exceptional.... More

My wife and I just had dinner here. My steak was a perfect medium rare and my wife liked her fettuccini Alfredo as well. Wished that fewer children were there but we did have an early dinner.

Small and romantic place, ask for the lamb chops in mine opinion even greater than a french restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation prior.

I have now eaten on at least two occasions in the Peppercorn Grill. The food is always excellent and the service is attentive. The restaurant is conveniently located on Pine Knot Avenue in the center of the "Village" in Big Bear Lake. Highly recommended to any resident or visitor to Big Bear.

Peppercorn is a nice choice for dining in Big Bear. I have only been there for lunch. Great salads, excellent soups, pasta, sandwiches, etc. Nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff. Love the turkey, brie, cranberry sandwich! Great clam chowder! Sweet potato fries - yum! Desserts are delicious.

My grandparents, my cousin, and I came up to visit big bear for the day and decided to try out a different restaurant then we usually do. The Peppercorn seemed to be a newer restaurant to us considering we hadn't been here for a couple years. The decor and the atmosphere of the restaurant was well set up. It was... More

My family and I ate here in December 2013. We all enjoyed our meal and our experience. The restaurant is located in the Big Bear Village, and is easy to find. They have free parking in a small parking lot in front of the restaurant. The service was excellent, the wait staff were all very friendly and professional. The menu... More

Stopped here on a recent day trip to Big Bear Lake. Had the BBQ chicken pizza and it was really good. Service was very quick and efficient.
