Again, always a superb meal.
Again, always a superb meal. We went for a family dinner. I split the "hand of the chef" and a tenderloin special with my son. Both were so delicious! Everyone also enjoyed the different beers from Wormtown Brewery which makes it even more fun. Something for everyone,from vegie burgers to gourmet tenderloin and ricotta stuffed chicken (which was the hand of the chef). The chef even made a chicken marsala for my husband and it was not even on the menu! Over and above, always!

Our waitress was very attentive, lively and cheerful. Menu was good and attractive; food was delicious. We had a well-lit table in a quiet spot. By the time we left, the "joint" was hopping.

The atmosphere in the restaurant
The atmosphere in the restaurant is not very pleasing. Looks and feels like a banquet hall; no ambiance.

Dining Experience with Family
Excellent in all, the steak tips were mouth watering although I had some done to rare and the rest were finely cooked. I would give Peppercorns 5 Stars-Excellent!

Food and service were both
Food and service were both great on Saturday night. We had the stuffed mushroom appetizer, my husband had the seafood risotto and I had the chicken piccata. The wine was very good as well. I like that they serve half portions of many of their dishes so I can actually finish my meal and I dont have to carry food around if we go somewhere after dinner.

Friday lunch buffet a winner!
We brought our friends from Canada for the buffet lunch on Friday. They have never had such a wonderful buffet! Five to six entrees: stuffed haddock, salmon, corned beef, chicken cordon blue, the best lasagna I have ever had, pesto ravioli...on and on. Really a treat and the price is right! We will be back most Fridays for lunch.

WPI's Baccaulaureate celebration
We love Peppercorns' We go there every time we come to visit our son at WPI. I get the lobster mac and cheese every time and it is delicious. Even if it's at lunch and not on the menu I can still order it. We'll miss the place once he graduates.

We were looking for a place to meet with coworkers out of town coming from Springfield, Providence and Southern NH and picked this place on a recommendation for a Clark University graduate. Not super expensive or super cheap. They have a good variety of menu items and all 5 members of our group enjoyed the meal completely. Great experience.

The food was excellent, we
The food was excellent, we had a party of 7 who all loved their meals! Thank you for making our graduation celebration so nice.
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
My fiancé and I love going to Peppercorns. The food is creative and great tasting. You should order the Chef's Hand and let the Chef decide what meal you will eat.

Great Value, Great Food
We had a graduation lunch there. Great kids menu, and we had a nice three course meal for 10 at an extremely affordable price. The menu was varied, and everything was tasty and well prepared. The only downside to the restaurant was that it is very dim. All of the windows had curtains on them which were closed, and even the windows themselves were tinted, creating a nighttime atmosphere that didn't seem appropriate for a sunny weekend lunch.

All Around Great Spot
I've been to Peppercorns for appetizers in the bar and lunch and dinner in the dining room. Excellent each time. Great food, drinks, and service. Reasonable prices for good portions. Wormtown Brewery is an added benefit. Love the Pro Am Porter.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better than Advertised
The staff was attentive and very friendly. The food was excellent for all five entrees...so good! The fresh, delicious "Wormtown" craft brews were a very pleasant surprise. I recommend for all occasions.

Father's Day Lunch
We chose the restaurant because it was halfway for us and my daughter's CT family. Pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. Nice menu variety with very reasonable lunch prices. The Lobster Mania specials were very enticing. My wife enjoyed her Lobster Risotto, although it had a bit too many tomatoes. My Pasta Bolognese was excellent, as was my daughter's Seafood Risotto. The Wormtown brews available added to the overall excellent meal, accompanied by excellent service during a very busy time. We will return to Peppercorn's soon. I recommend it highly.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Returned to try some more of the Lobstermania menu; lobster risotto last time was delicious. This time the Baja salad was just as good...it is going to be a very good lobster summer a t Peppercorns!

Name seems to suggest a beer and burger type bar, but is anything but. They have a small brewery attached, but that is a nice add on for the beer lovers. Wife and I were surprised by choice and quality of food. She had the special pork tenderloin; loved it. Says it had the best mashed sweet potato she ever had. I had the chicken special with mushroom ravioli which was grilled and had grilled portabellas, peppers, onions in a spicy tomato sauce that was really very good. I took half home!
My cousin and his girl had the "Hand of the Chef" special. It a special designed for the adventurous foodie. They won't tell you anything about it other than you will love it. This time it was a fish dish designed to look like the USA Flag! They loved it!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had never been here before. Staff was attentive and knew the menu. I didn't make it past the lobster menu. I chose the lobster ravs and they were excellent. I loved the Wormtown Brew beers also. There were children in the resturant that were enjoying themselves and were very well behaved. I love the fact you can make a reservation as I hate waiting for a table. The noise level measure above is difficult. i would say it was between quiet and moderate.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great local microbrewery
Great local place, always has new brews on tap to try. The food is fantastic, atmosphere is great. If you've never been, gotta go.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My family and I love Peppercorns. The food is always good and they have a wide varitey of micobrews. Very reasonable prices.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Peppercorns never fails to impress us. Their Restaurant Week and Lobster Mania menus gave us so many delicious options. Their is always someone that orders the "Hand of the Chef" entree and it always receives high praises. Our group considers themselves draft beer snobs so the beer list is a definite plus.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
fun date night
enjoyed sampling many Wormtown brews...great server...and fun to try the mysterious "hand of the chef" dish which was delicious! reasonably priced and easy to get a reservation day before. definitely noisy, but not in a bad way.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great deal
Dinner for two after work because no one felt like cooking means we're tired and just want to snarf something fast. Haven't been to Peppercorns in a while so we gave it a shot as a change from Shrewsbury Street. We have to remember to go back more often! Seated right away, specials explained, orders taken drinks arrived then dinner. I had meatloaf, quinoa and asparagus wrapped in prosciutto - awesome! We'll be back.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food at a reasonable price
Our group of 4 enjoyed a wonderful night out at Peppercorns. They have interesting drink selections, such as Bananas Foster, which was better than I expected. The meal selections all looked wonderful! The tortellini Matthew was terrific. Service was quick and pleasant.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would highly recommend this restaurant. I chose it online to meet an old college buddy and it was halfway. I'm so glad I did and the next time we get together we will come back here. The food was excellent and the service beyond great. It was a very nice family place and seemed the place to be on a Sunday afternoon.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service with a Smile
From the time we pulled up to meet the valet we were treated very well. We came in for our 7:30pm reservation and were met with a smile by the front desk area the GM. We explained we were first timers and he made it point to explain the menu and give us his recommendations. They did not disappoint. The wait staff was prompt and friendly which included the bus staff. I would highly recommend as the food was fantastic but the service, which may be a lost art was very prevalent here. Great job Peppercorn Grille Team!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent thin crust margherita pizza. Well presented imaginative entrees, not iovercooked. Excellent beer on tap. Knowledgeable and friendly server.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great, service impeccable. We will be going back again. Highly recommended!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Appetizers, entree, wine, and service were all great. This was our 3rd time here and haven't had a bad meal or service yet. The appearance is not that great though. It is a 45 minute drive for us, but worth the trip.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of several specials for the evening was a lemon-peppered swordfish served with their own version of a deliciously crispy potato pancake. Both were spectacular. I've eaten at Peppercorn's many times and always been pleased with my meal, but this time it was even above the very-high previous standard of my earlier visits. All 3 people dining with me were pleased with their meals as well. This was a very busy Saturday evening but nevertheless, the service was friendly and efficient. I really love this restaurant!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose Peppercorn's for a birthday get together and had a great evening. The entire meal was very good, from appetizers to dessert. There were 6 of us and no one had a complaint about the food or service. The portions were large. 4 of the 6 of us went home with doggie bags. It's been a while since I'd eaten at Peppercorn's and I know I'll be back soon.

Monthly get together
Went there on a Tuesday night wth family, no children. Had a very good dinner. Server was wonderful. Food was great!

Great Night Out
I recently brought my wife out to Peppercorns for our anniversary and had an awesome time. The food was excellent, the service was great and we will definitely be back! And soon! The dessert menu was my favorite. I can wait to go back next month when we go to the theater.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great value
The quality and quantity of food exceeded my expectations for the reasonable prices. I also liked the wide selection of wine, all at $23/bottle. The atmosphere is quite casual but the food is fine dining, a perfect combo for me. I'm looking forward to returning for the steak tips and Neuberg soon!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good and reliable
The 'corn is near to my home so its a regular dining spot for us. The brewery is right there so the are always many beer choices as well as wines. But the food is far above typical pub fare. It has a well rounded menu with many Italian influences. All in all,very dependable.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Made my reservation on Open
Made my reservation on Open Table, asked for a table in a quieter area as my husband is very hard of hearing and a lot of background noise is problematic for him to carry on a converstion. We arrived 15 mins early, as traffic was not as bad as we had anticipated. We waited the 15 mins, then were escorted to a table at the entrance of the dining room, the most bustling, noisy area in the entire room! Oh well, didn't want to make a big deal.
Wine and beer selection was good, husband had the beer sampler. 1 of his choices was not available, he did enjoy the 4 he tried. Pasta bolognese was AMAZING, chicken piccata a little bland. Panzanella salad excellent. Service was very attentive. Will wait for a more satisfactory table next time.

Pleased every member of our group
We went to peppercorns to celebrate a family birthday and diners ranged from 86 to 26. The food was fantastic - everyone was pleased with his or her meal. I had the hand of the chef after seeing it on a nearby table - the chicken stuffed with goat cheese and spinach was cooked perfectly and the accompanying marscapone mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious. The asparagus wrapped in prosciutto was also a nice addition. Other diners had pasta, fish and chips, and steak tips and most plates were clean by the end of the meal.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Each time we have eaten at Peppercorn's the food has been excellent. The prices are reasonable and the service is good. Great place to go in Worcester.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is always great, the wait staff very professional. I have been here many times with friends and relatives and it has always been a great meal and atmosphere along with very pleasant and efficient wait staff.
