I was in visiting from Ohio, found this restaurant online. Wanted to go for my birthday. When I saw it, it didn't look the best from the outside just looked like a rundown house. But don't let that fool you, it is very nice inside. The food is a bit pricey but it is very good. I would highly recommend... More

Been living in Summerville for about 25 years, drove past the restaurant all the time, but never stopped to eat. My daughter started working there as a server about two months ago. She would tell me about how good the food was, so when my sister was here last weekend, we went for dinner. I got the shrimp and Scallops... More

We have driven past The Red Pepper for years and tonight we finally pulled in. The service was great and the food was delicious. Prices just right for a family dinner in Summerville. We will be back to try the lobster ravioli very soon.

Alyssa was very attentive as my server & very personable. The entire staff was delightful & welcoming. I especially enjoyed learning more about the food & wine from owner Fred. The chef is to...

Get the fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp and scallops , so delicious . Great atmosphere , nice wine selection and the menu made it difficult to choose . The cook is a friend of mine and he suggested the Alfredo platter and it was so much food I brought half of it home with me .

In town for just one night and chose this restaurant based on previous reviews. Small, locally owned. Giving customers a solid value in a friendly warm environment is obviously important to the owners. Waitress Maryann was great. Meal was excellent. Give them a try. They were even able to provide a gluten free pasta for my wife.

We had a reservation for 5pm. A party of twelve. It took us two hours to complete our meal. Service was extremely slow. When we questioned the staff they blamed it on our party size. Again, we arrived at 5pm. We were just about the only customers at that time. Food was good, but not worth the wait to be... More
