Good food, and you get to watch the trains roaring past along the old Rock Island line.

I always enjoy going to The Peppertree. The food's great and the staff's nice. It is definitively one of the best and classy restaurants in town! I usually get seated promptly but on busier nights it might take awhile which is understandable it's not like I'm at McD's. But the wait is always well worth it!

I was told that there was new management and that the ribeye was great. I was there for a business meeting in the bar area. The bartenders and servers were very attentive and I had a great ribeye, it tasted almost sweet! We had a very experienced server who even brought me a drink sample when I mentioned it as she had not had experience with it herself. Love all the glass in the bar area, enjoyed the occasional train going by (at the other end of the building so not disruptive to us). Enjoyed the outdoor seating prior to our meal. Highly recommend giving it another try if you have been there and was disappointed before.

This restaurant has two sections - a sunny, new area which is filled with flat screened TV's and an older brick, train depot section. The food is fine but unimaginative - our waiter was fantastic.

Just had a delicious lunch with a very minimal time wait today. Our server is a pro and has been a regular server at some of the town's restaurants. Word is that the service has been addressed by the owner and improvements made. Give it another chance. I know I will. This is a wonderful building and location and it would be a shame to see another restaurant fail. The food is really, really delicious.
