Dinner with friends

Evening dinner out with friends, menu selection was good for all of us, fish, chicken, pasta. Server was friendly ( Michael ), and provided good advice for our meal selections. We had an enjoyable and satisfying evening.

Sarah our server was probably the best I have ever experienced!! Explained everything, asked about allergies (we were with our boys), her recommendations on everything were spot on! Looking forward to my next visit to Worcester. Great local craft beer selection. If you love IPA go there!

I recently went to Peppercorns and loved the food. I had a chicken dish that was to die for. The chicken was so tasty and tender I would have to say this was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. My husband had the pot roast and raved about it. A few days later I went... More

I ate here with a bigger group and we all were satisfied with the food. Our meals were great and the service was average overall. The one thing I was not happy with at all was the prices. I guess for good quality food comes high prices.

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!!

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 favorites. We also tried the Zsang... More

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

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
