I love corned beef hash and the menu said it was homemade. Some restaurants claim that their hash is homemade, but it's obvious that it came from a can when you can see the same sized potato nibs mixed into corned beef mush. The Pepper...Pot corned beef hash is without a doubt homemade and very good. I mean it's really really good. I tasted a slight smokyness which added another layer of flavor. The homefries were nicely browned, the scrambled eggs were light and fluffy, and I'd like to know the brand of rye bread that they use because it was one of the tastiest rye breads I've ever had. My breakfast was excellent and I can't wait to take my wife to the Pepper Pot.More

I haven't been to the Pepper Pot in awhile because the last few times I went to go there was a long wait. I love the Pepper Pot. You better come ready to eat because the portions are plentiful. My family of 3 would go...for breakfast and I would usually get pancakes and they are huge. The staff is good and always ready to fill your cup with more coffee.More

Sausage gravy and biscuits were excellent. Hashbrowns were great too. We went on Mother's day and they were packed. The staff is very organized and kept everyone happy.

This restaurant is very popular in town. Lines out the door all the time. I, personally, never have good luck at this restaurant! This time I had hair in my food. Servers were very nice and remade food. Surprised that they still charged me. Unfortunately...I will not be backMore

Pepper Pot has amazing food for breakfast. Pancakes are as big as their giant plates. The fruit is always fresh. Service is great. Always accommodate for big families.

This great experience started as soon as we got there. Arriving at 9:30 on a Saturday morning, at what appeared to be a full restaurant, and tables were rearranged and we were seated within 10 minutes. Drink orders were taken almost immediately and order taking...took place right away without the feeling of being rushed. The food was served quick, hot and freshly made. The serving sizes were huge and the flavors were all fantastic. I had the Mt Pepper Pot and the dish was fantastic. If you like large portions and fast, friendly service, you must make this establishment a priority when in the area!More

We were very pleased with our breakfast stop at the Pepper Pot restaurant. We were on time for their early bird special, including coffee, (pictured) which my sister-in-law ordered. My husband ordered a western omelet with cheese and I ordered the French toast. Both were...generous portions and delicious. The home fries were the best I've ever had!! The hometown feel is evident throughout the restaurant with a variety of large, local murals and framed pictures. We were greeted by our waitress, Diane, and offered drinks immediately. She was attentive to our needs even though she was very busy. There is a nice feeling the waitress knows all the locals who are regulars. We highly recommend brMore

We came here by chance, visiting from California for the first time with my Daughter and needed a stop along the way to our destination. Not only was the Food one in a million! My dad and I both ordered the best omelettes we have...ever had, but on top of that, they were so accommodating to our needs in getting my 8mo daughter taken care of, offering dishes while we fed her, water for her bottle...we will be recommending them to our entire family here in Connecticut!!!More

This is an amazing diner. Great sized portions, great food and friendly and attentive service. The pancakes are enormous (the size of a large plate) as are the omelettes. The loaded home fries are sinfully delicious. Service was friendly and attentive - coffee and water...glasses filled regularly.More

My wife and I can be found at Pepper Pot just about every Saturday morning. We are usually there before 9:30am because after that time the is always a line waiting for a table. The food and service is consistently very good. Many of the...waitresses have been there a long time and they get to know you by name. Most times as we are sitting down my wife's ice coffee and my regular coffee is already in our waitress hand and being placed on the table. Now that's service. My wife loves their pancakes which are about the size of a dinner plate. I on the other hand have a few favorite dishes. The make the best corned beef hash I have ever had. Their house scramble plate with diced sausage and tomatoes is excellent. Another one of my favorites is their eggs with Italian sausage. For toast I will ask for either their rye or Italian bread. The home fries that come with the breakfast are cooked perfectly with some crustiness and seasoned perfectly. Although the prices are slightly higher then other places, I am willing to pay the extra for the quality of the food and the friendly service. My wife and I always leave there full and satisfied and with a smile on our face.More

Love going to the Pepper Pot for breakfast. The menu selection is great and the food is consistently good. Never had a problem with their service.

The Pepper Pot is always good for breakfast. I think they are higher priced than some of the other places around the area. My biggest complaint is they will not seat you unless your entire party is there. Most people meeting for breakfast are there...within a few minutes of each other. So if you have a party of 4 and your 4th person is not there, they will seat a party of 2 at a table for 4 and you will have to wait until the next table for 4 is available. I find the staff to be rude as well. You just about get seated and are being asked for your order. I like time to look at the menu. Because there are always people waiting, I feel they rush you so they can turn over the clientele faster. If you do choose to dine here, definitely get the loaded potatoes. They are great.More
