After a long day of youth baseball and fast food we were ready for a good meal. Two prime rib dinners were very tasty and the salad bar was fresh. On a night that was not very busy, the service was very slow. I find it hard to recommend due to the slow service. We wondered if our server simply... More

This is an ideal place for a good basic dining in the Cooperstown Dream's Park area. There is nothing fancy here, but the basics standout. Service, quality of food and dining environment provide for a solid dining experience. I had the New York steak which was tasty, tender, and cooked to perfection. The sword fish and rib eye were reported... More

Their claimed specialty is steaks... The prices indicate that they should have good steaks. The steaks were marginal. No flavor at all. Maybe they should use a "pepper mill" for fresh ground pepper as their name would suggest. Or at least offer fresh ground pepper. (normal salt and pepper shakers were on the table) Salad bar was good, but not... More

We were in Cooperstown for the DreamsPark baseball tournament and a few families decided to head out for dinner together. We heard some good things about the Pepper Mill so we decided to give it a try. Our party had 12 people in it, so we were seated in the area of the restaurant geared toward bigger parties. It felt...

Very friendly staff. Kept us separate from groups of ball teams. Salad bar was great but steaks were so so.

Went here for dinner while visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame. We ordered the fish fry. Fish itself was good, but the filet still had the skin on, which we don't like. Service was good. Ordered a cocktail which was $7 and minuscule.

Great food and you definitely won't leave hungry. Employees were friendly and warm. Soup and salad bar was large and filled with wonderful tidbits. All in all we were extremely happy with our experience there and will go back again.
