Always great food

We always stop by Pepper's when we're in town. The French onion soup and fried mushrooms are a must! The wait can be long on game days or weekends during peak leaf seasons so I recommend lunch on the early side. While the food is great and it's a family favorite, the service can be slow.

I had the pasta and my husband had a sandwich. The food was good, but nothing special. Better if you are going out for a very casual meal. I had their famous carrot cake too. It was good, but not over the top. Service was a little slow. The interior was a bit dark too. Had to move tables because... More

This restaurant is in a shopping center and has been there for locals a long time. Rustic inside and down home. Good salad bar and a variety on the menu. The reuben was excellent.

Good food and great atmosphere. First time my son had been here and he loved the kid's pizza. My daughter had a great chicken wrap and my husband and I enjoyed half sandwiches with the salad bar.

This restaurant has been an institution since I was in school at Appalachian State. I never come to Boone without eating here at least once. It was the first time for a friend of mine, and he wanted to go back again!

I recently met friends (who really LOVE Pepper's) for dinner. The last time I had met them, a year or two ago, I had (very much) enjoyed a "Baseball Steak" that was perfectly cooked and served with some very well-prepared fresh vegetables. I was looking forward to having it again, as it was the best food I had ever had... More

This is one of a few restaurants in the high country that serves gluten free bread and buns. My daughter had a turkey sandwich on gluten free bread. She recommends the bread toasted. I had a burger on a gluten free bun. I found it hard to distinguish the gluten free bun from a regular bun. The other two people... More

We ordered an app the spinach dip it was ok. They messed up my grilled cheese which, how can that even happen? Too expensive for bad food, will never go back. Will have to say service was excellent.

My husband and I visited Peppers after our guide on our raft recommended it-We had been wanting catfish, and this totally filled the bill-not only did it come with salad bar, but also 2 delicious sides as well. The Mac and Cheese about the best I have had--all for a reasonable price!

In general, the product is always amazing, but the wait time. GEEZ. Don't go before work, unless you have up to 20 mins to burn. I just feel like they need about 2 more workers to comp the load of the morning rush.
