Yummy

Very good food. Decent service. Pricey. Not quite the quality that was once offered by Pepper's that completely warranted the price tag.

I used to be big on this place. It's local and has a good selection. But the food isn't as good as it used to be 4-5 years ago. And they are so slow to get anything out and it's never hot just lukewarm food.

So my reviews are honest on the experience I have when I go so here goes. When we arrived the person at the front seated us as soon as we we walked in he was very polite. Our waiter was around to the table in less then 3 minutes there were only 2 other tables in the restaurant with patrons.... More

My husband and I have always gone to Peppers because we knew the food would be great. When I was pregnant with ur first child I craved their carrot cake cupcakes (which are still delicious). However, our last couple of experiences have been below average. The lettuce was brown, we hoped it give our children fruit from the salad bar,... More

Prime rib sandwich, chicken fingers, and salad bar were really good! Beer selection was great, too-- a lot of local brews. We went twice-once for take-out at dinner time, once for lunch. Dinner was very busy, but staff were still very attentive and nice. We beat the lunch crowd and ate in the bar area, and service and food were... More

Drove in from about 20 miles; unfortunately, near closing (I think, about 9:45PM on Sat) - sign said "OPEN" - but upon going in told the main section was closed; would have to sit in the "bar" section. Didn't come for drinks, came for dinner -- 2nd problem - wanted us to sit on tall chairs, would have to climb... More

I love pepper's, one of the best bar & grills in town. Food is great, on the pricey side though. They just went up about 50% on all their craft beers. Food is always good.

It had been years since I ate here and it was just as awesome as before. I had the salad bar and soup. I had a friend with me and she got the same thing. Fabulous per both of us. It was a little pricey. $40 for those entrees for lunch plus 2 glasses of wine, but well worth it... More
