The Peppercorn Grille is probably the finest dining experience Big Bear can offer. I dined there recently in September 2016 for a birthday dinner. Making a reservation online at Yelp was very convenient and the hostess even sent me a text message if I would like to bump up our reservation earlier. The waiters were attentive and the menu is...

The service and food were very good at a reasonable price. Great atmosphere sitting on the patio and enjoying a quiet dinner on a Sunday night. Make reservations as they are needed.

From the moment we arrived I was very pleased! Great greeting from the hostess made me feel welcome. Our server was great and recommended the calamari appetizer that was prepared using giant squid that was by far the best I've ever had. Being from Florida I had never heard of Ballast Point Brewery but I took our servers suggestion and... More

Had a nice birthday dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Vegan pasta, filet mignon, fish and salads. Great garlic mashed potatoes! The lava cake for dessert was heavenly! Waitress was not too friendly, but it was late (9 pm) once we were seated (a 1 hour wait). We shopped in the cute village and was texted when our table was ready.

My wife and I went there for dinner on a Tuesday evening at 5:30pm. It's located in "The Village" and was a short walk from our hotel. We didn't make reservations and just walked in. Reservations are recommended but we took our chances. They have outdoor seating but we chose to be inside. Our server was very attentive and helpful.... More

There were options for the kids, and for vegetarians too. Of course, my hubby was happy with his non-veggie high quality protein choices as well. The waitress didn't blink an eye when we asked for my son's custom pasta either. The hostesses were friendly, and servers all helped one another. The kitchen is on point with modern flavors, and we... More

Got to get there early to get a table. Usually they are booked solid. Wait staff was very attentive, food presentation was good. Artichoke dip appetizer was terrific.
