Not bad

I was here on a quite Saturday night in May (Mother's Day weekend). We sat at the bar. The food and drinks were pretty good and the service was fine. I would definitely come back when I'm in the area.

Another one of my favorite places! I adore the tables out front that are actually swings that you can rock back and forth, like a glider. The broccoli cheddar soup is some of the best I've ever tasted. The mascot for the place is a big foghorn leghorn looking animal who calls himself Big Pecker, hence the name of the... More

Stopped by on New Yrs. weekend for a bite and a beer. The town was fairly busy for January, as was Big Peckers. We sat at the bar and got surrounded by locals who were all having such fun, it was infectious!! Lots of interesting characters to chat with, and great bartenders made for a great time. Add in the...

We stopped recently as both our previous visits last year were very good. What a disappointment! We ordered the burgers again and they definitely were not worth going back for. The burgers were not cooked properly (well-done) and were very pink in the middle. They tried to correct the problem, but still didn't get it right. The service was good,... More

Geat outdoor seating wooden gliders with umbrellas. Food is average, but pretty good. Staff is friendly. Nice place to take older kids for outside dining.

Once again, I left completely full, with leftovers, and money still in my wallet. The outside eating area is really nice with it's swinging tables and fountain. The staff is very kind and actually take the time to talk to you. BP is now a staple in my OC visits!

We have stopped here in the past for drinks, decided to have lunch this time. The portions were generous and the sandwiches delicious. My only complaint was I ordered a cup of soup and was brought a bread bowl of soup. They did acknowledge this but still charged me for the more expensive portion.

Average restaurant at best. Gift shop didn't take any credit cards or debit, no notice posted except at cash register when paying. Staff sat at table having their lunch and chatting while we waited for them to check on us. Food was ok, but nothing spectacular!
