The pesto cream sauce that smothered my mushroom ravioli was rich with real butter and cream. The serving was very generous, and it came with an unlimited fresh salad bar. The ranch dressing tasted homemade. My husband's portion of meat loaf was far more than he could eat. He enjoyed it as well as the garlic mashed potatoes. Dinner for... More

We were able to walk here from our motel. Great atmosphere. Good all American food. We both had burgers - juicy, tasty, perfectly cooked. We also had awesome onion rings & steak fries. The apple pie with sour cream filling was delicious. Wine was pricey.

Stopped in recently for lunch and we were very satisfied. They have an outstanding menu and everything we ordered came out just as advertised. The wraps are outstanding and very full of flavor. Do yourself a favor and give them a shot.

They have the best french onion soup bar none. They also have the best blackened chicken Caesar salad. Their croutons are awesome. My husband had the Reuben and it was great. Oh yeah..they give you these little scissors to cut the cheese strings... awesome!!!

Went with a large group. I ate off the bar and was impressed by quality and selection. Those in the group that ordered off the menu bragged on their meals. Our waitress was helpful and friendly. Food was worth the price.

This place has the BEST french onion soup we have found. The bread is toasted enough to still have a bit of a crunch. They give you a little pair of scissors to "cut the cheese" with.also, their onion rings are to die for.... a must visit place every time we go to Boone, NC.

I usually rave about this restaurant however on Saturday l was disappointed in the salad bar and food. Some friends came into town and we decided to eat here; our waiter was good(drinks refilled/if we needed anything), however the french onion soup that l order was cold and did not taste like it usually does. Another complaint the salad bar... More

My husband and two other friends had a fun meal at Pepper's. This is an unabashedly local restaurant where people bring their families, have different ranges of Burgers, beef, spaghetti, all for a reasonable price and huge portions. If you are looking to go to a place where children are discouraged or sitting around quietly, this is not your restaurant.... More
