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.

We used Open Table so were able to sit right down on a usually busy Friday night. We sat in the back part of the dining room, down the steps. It was a little noisy but not bad. Our server, Mike, was very friendly and attentive. We started with the Zhang Zhang shrimp. It came out hot with a really... More

Peppercorn's Grille offers such interesting specials that, sometimes, we forget to even look at the menu. From the draft beer selections (available in a flight of four for sampling), to the Hand of the Chef (a mystery dinner that you can't even get a hint at until it arrives at your table - if you don't have allergies, it is...

Me and my fiance really enjoy going to peppercorns. The pizza is fantastic. The risotto balls appetizers is amazing. The decor is very up to date and the restaurant is very clean. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I've eaten at Peppercorn's quite a few times over the years. I generally go there because of the location, not specifically for the food. The building itself is old and out dated. It's attached to a brewery/bar so I've never been a fan of the noise. That said, I had a groupon and we randomly chose Sunday Brunch there to... More

For those looking for one of Worcester's best local brews on tap, great food, and service, check out Peppercorn's. The staff is extremely welcoming and offer great suggestions as you review the brews and food. The restaurant offers great draft selections including Worcester's own Wormtown Brews, so if you are having a difficult time making a decision order a flight.... More

The restaurant is one of my niece's favorites, We were visiting her and went to dinner in celebration of the new coming baby. It was Saturday night, the restaurant was packed with families and youngsters having a good time. We started with a Chianti Rufino to enhance the cheery mood. As usual in cold weather I asked for a soup... More

I decided to have a group of friends meet at the pub area to celebrate my husbands birthday. due to varying schedules and people coming in and out, we chose the pub as its more flexible than a formal reservation and crossing bills/taking up hours of space in the dining room.

My son, husband and I went on a Friday and only a short wait. Greet staff were nice, place didn't feel crowded because there are different rooms to sit and have a meal. Menu offers a good variety. We had chicken and broccoli, stuffed haddock and steak dinner. All were plentiful and delicious, enough to have leftovers. Atomism here is... More
