Exceeded expectations on service and ambiance, a perfect choice for a romantic date. The food portions are generous, a lovely presentation & most importantly: delicious! Service was efficient, attentive and expedient. I’m a New England Clam chowder snob, theirs is nothing short of amazing!

We really enjoyed our dining experience at Peppercorn. We sat outside with the heaters going and it was pleasant though the view is nothing really. Food and service were great.

Fast and friendly service. Food was good. A bit "quite" to have 2 kids but we made it work. They didn't offer a kids menu so the kids split the burger. But i would go again.
