Nicely Tucked away in Big Bear Lake area. Peppercorn is a great place to go for lunch or dinner. It was refreshing to sit outside in the summer. The food is good and salads are enormous. Will definitely return for dinner next time.

Stop by with some friend and had a wonderful meal. I wanted just plain chicken and veggies with no oil. It was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent and willing to accommodate what ever we needed. I can't wait to go back.
