The wait staff was competent, but not wonderful. However, the food was delicious! 2 of us had meals from the Lobster mania menu. The lobster Mac and Cheese was fantastic! 2 of us had personal pizzas, which were very large, and tasted great. We did not get appetizers or desserts, so I'm hesitant to give a rating of "Excellent"

Arrived early for supper before a meeting - about 5. Bar was hopping but dining room was not. The server was prompt and friendly. In reciting the specials not on the menu she said the words "lavender salmon" and hubby and I knew what I was getting. first she asked if we wanted bread ( YES!) and brought a lovely... More

I'm a beer guy so anytime I travel to a new city I'm constantly looking for breweries, brewpubs, and good beer bars. My fiancée and I were in Worcester for my daughter's graduation and when I discovered where The Wormtown Brewery was we just had to have lunch at Peppercorns. First and foremost the beers were excellent. I would love... More

My wife & son had dinner with our granddaughter the night preceding her college graduation. The restaurant was her choice. Everyone ordered different entrees. Everyone was very pleased, This was our second visit in the four years our granddaughter had been at Clark Univ.

First time eating off the full dinner menu. The seafood risotto had a generous amount of seafood. The stuffed salmon special was great as is the bread. I would definitely return. They do need higher quality silverware.

I already wrote a review for this place for their fine dinners. I recently had my first brunch there, and it was out of this world!!! Again, generous portions and EGGselent flavor. I had the stuffed French toast and it was to die for. Peppercorns never ceases to amaze me....The eggs Benedict was great too!!!!!!

I chose this restaurant out of ALL of the places I could have chosen to spend my $200.00 for five people in Worcester. If you are looking for the type of relaxed "dining experience" that I enjoy...this is not the place, the server rushed us from the start. I made a reservation for a Sunday at 5:30 p.m. and upon...

I usually order take out pizza because of the thin crust and size of pizza - it's huge! Decided to make a reservation and try it out. Granted, it was a Friday night, but a reservation is a reservation. Our party waited over a half hour to be seated. Once sat, in the bar no less - our choice to... More

Hi, I am very sorry about your recent dine-in experience. Even though we were busy, you should have felt comfortable once sat at a table. It was concerning to hear this about your waitress. We spend a lot of time and energy in training, educating and exposing our staff to our menu items. Do you recall their name? I am... More

The food was great. Had dinner here on a recent "date night" with my husband. The atmosphere is a bit drab but we got past that. What we did not get past was the service. Our waiter was very friendly and made a dessert recommendation for my husband from the fixed menu that turned out to be a great choice.... More
