Stopped here for lunch on our last day in OC. The kids loved sitting outside on the swing. Food was good. I got the shrimp salad wrap which was very tasty but huge - be prepared! Reasonable prices, plus good selections for the pickiest eaters.

Our family has gone to Big Peckers for years. The kids love to sit outside in a swing. The burgers are big, juicy and tasty. We also love the fries and the Orange/grapefruit crushes.

We stopped for lunch on a beautiful August afternoon and had the chicken tacos, which were wonderful--particularly when sitting in one of the outside "gliders." The beer selection is very large, too. Service was prompt, the staff friendly, and prices reasonable. Check it out!

We actually went here twice during our week in OC. Once for lunch an once for dinner. Food was really good. We loved sitting outside on the gliding tables. They also have a water mist system installed which is great for the hot days. Would definitely recommend!

Went on a friends recommendation. Not a bad place. Food was very good. Staff was super friendly. Very busy for off season times but that just shows how good of a place it is. We had BBQ pulled pork which was great. French onion soup was bland. Grilled cheese for my 4 year old was perfectly cooked. Mozz sticks were... More

We go to OC every other year. This was our 7th trip, and we've been to the Big Pecker every year. Our group is anywhere from 8-12 each year. There is always a wait whenever we've gone. However, not having to sit at the same table, speeds the wait up. Because of the size of our group, we usually can't... More

I really didn't expect too much going in. My 13 year old daughter and I really couldn't agree on a place to eat and we drove by, saw the sign, and parked the car. Inside was dark and dingy. Family friendly. Plenty of big families in there. Big Pecker's also has outdoor seating in really cool looking gliders but we... More

Well known for its half pound burgers, but there are other menu choices also. Not fancy, but well made and ample portions. Service is great and very attentive. They can handle families and large groups easily.

My family and I make a stop here each year when we vacation in Ocean City. They have the best burgers and we crave them all year long. Nice and big, juicy, great flavor. I do think they've made them just a bit smaller than in previous years. I did finish mine this year and generally I can eat only... More
