Nothing fancy, but very good bar and restaurant. Good burgers and salads. I wouldn't order one of the more expensive specials or dinners.

Peppercorns has been in business forever. It has the perfect niche for its location. I have been dining here weekly for at least 20 years. The food is consistently excellent as is the service.

I was quite surprised we went there on Saturday night expecting to be crowded and there was about 5 people sitting at the bar and all the bar tables were open and the dining room had a small handful of tables maybe 4. We went there with friends who frequent the place and said it's always like this. For a... More

I started coming here for the happy hours with their delicious Buffalo Wings and great selection of beers. Then I returned for business lunches when you can get awesome, rich and tasty salads for a very reasonable price. Finally I started coming here for dinner, enjoying the great selection of American style dishes. I was never disappointed! I would definitely... More

Stopped in for lunch during a 100 degree plus heatwave. The air conditioning was running full blast and the bar had a small crowd of 6 watching the Olympics from Brazil on TV. The seating area was about 1/2 full. We had the flavored ice tea with Philly Cheese Steak and Ruben Sandwich. Service was quick and the food was... More

I was told this place was a wonderful place to take my wife to eat and so we went. I was not impressed. Service was very slow. The food was ok at best and the decor left much to be desired. Its ok for lunch, but skip it for dinner.

We've been going here since it opened more than 30 years ago and even further back when it was called the Bear's Nest and we lived a block away. Although the dinner menu is limited, it is a great place for a quick lunch. I especially like the CLT and my wife usually chooses the Cobb Salad.

Went with a couple of co-workers for a quick business lunch. Food was pretty good. Service was just ok. A little on the slow side but it worked. Only issue I had was the serving of the beer. Entire table waited because on person ordered a Guinness which had to have special attention. Not good when the rest of the... More
