Great Lunch with a Group of Co-Workers

We went to lunch here yesterday. There were 12 in our party. The waitress did a terrific job getting all our beverages, appetizers and then entrees. The menu for lunch is much smaller than the dinner menu but we all found something we liked. The risotto balls for an appetizer is one of my... read more

Recently, my family hosted my surprise birthday party at Peppercorns and everything was perfect! Many of the guests complemented the food and especially the service. We are looking forward to coming back for brunch soon!!

3rd visit, very impressed. In spite of losing in site brewery, beer selection was undoubtedly the best in town. Food, excellent as always. Go for the calamari. Wished there was plain pasta dishes to order with their spectacular marinara! Burgers were top shelf!

We've been dining here for years. Last fall the menu changed radically. OK, half plates were eliminated and some combo dinners disappeared. But what has really changed is the terrible service. We dine there monthly and our last three visits have seen slow, inadequate service. From dreadfully slow, to a server disappearing midway through our dining and being replaced by... More

I went to peppercorns with my family the server was rude and nasty, she got our oder wrong twice and when we attempted to correct her she nastily responded in front of my children who she upset with her tone that we were wrong. My son 10 ordered a well done burger which was raw in the center pictures taken.... More

Having made reservations for an early dinner through Open Table, we were pleasantly greeted and promptly seated. Our server was friendly and experienced. We made her aware of our theater tickets and she promised to be sure there were no delays. Our order consisting of three different chicken dishes and one beef arrived at our table in an appropriate time... More

We used to work in Worcester and enjoyed stopping at Peppercorns on the way home for dinner as a treat. A friend was in Worcester performing at the Hanover Theater so we drove over to take him to dinner at our favorite place. My partner always enjoys the lobster corn chowder! My absolute favorite is to order "The Hand of... More

Peppercorn's offers imaginatively prepared pub food alongside one of Worcester's best beer selections. A little on the pricey side, the food never disappoints.

When in Worcester we have eaten several times at Peppercorns, using Open Table to make reservations so we can get a table (it can get pretty busy). This has been a very consistent "go to" restaurant for us. The restaurant has two major seating areas: bar and main dining. The bar gets a bit tight in terms of seating and... More

Had dinner at Peppercorns and the food was really fresh and tasty. My son had the "Hand of the Chef" which is whatever the chef wants to make. It was really good and smartly priced. I had the pretzel chicken was also tasty. Portions are large so bring a large appetite or bring home for leftovers.
