    We had our "last meal" at Peppercorn's before all the restaurants were forced to close for indoor eating and move to take-out only. We chose Peppercorn's because it is reliably very good, and it didn't disappoint us this time, either. The Monday night $7 appetizers were a great bargain; we got the loaded potato skins. We also shared a bowl of onion soup gratinee, which was very good, and for our main course we got penne carbonara with chicken, which was excellent. The penne isn't on the current menu, but if you order it, they'll make it for you. It was weird and sad to see so few people eating in the main dining room. I hope the take-out business will keep them going.

    Friendly reception at hostess station. Immediately seated. Server (Devon) was prompt and pleasant. She was right on top of our orders and drink refills. She was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks menus. Four entrees were generously portioned, flavorful and relatively inexpensive. Desserts from Bean Counter were delicious. It was our first visit but we will cheerfully return and recommend to others.

    The staff was friendly and welcoming. Our server was polite and knowledgeable. The service was timely. Our food was yummy The Chefs special dish was well worth the surprise I found the table to be very uncomfortable, the leaf angled down and wasn’t even with the table. It felt as though everything was falling forward onto my lap. Overall a good place and nice experience

    Thank you very much for hosting my Mom’s birthday - the food and the service was excellent and the whole party had a great time. Additionally, I have to call out the mushroom appetizer, it was PHENOMENAL, and we would return for that the next time we are in Worcester!

    First and foremost our waitress was fantastic. I ordered the new burg and tips and of the three tips all were over seasoned and very salty. One of the three was very fatty and tough to cut as there was a line of grizzle in the middle. The new burg sauce was good and the piece of fish was cooked well, but I was disappointed at the bay scallops, I would have preferred 2 or 3 deep sea scallops to the bay scallops of which there was only a small quantity. The dessert was fantastic and my coffee was very good and hot. I enjoy Kim Crawford and found the price per glass slightly expensive, but just the same I was pleased. The restaurant was clean, staff friendly.

    Peppercorn's never disappoints. The food and service are excellent. It's a no-frills operation but you'd never know it. The room can get a little raucous especially if it's crowded. Bread is by "request" only. That is not really made clear by most of the wait staff (although I think it might say so on their menu), which can come as a surprise to newer clients.

    This was our first time dining at Peppercorn's Grille and Tavern so we didn't know what to expect. Sometimes finding a restaurant that makes our family of adults and young kids happy at the same time can be a challenge. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was great for a date night or dining with children, and the services was above and beyond. When we are in the area again we will be returning to this great restaurant!

    WE had a party of 6 for dinner. Overall the food was good. I think the prices were high, especially since they do not bring bread to the table and you don't get a salad with your dinner. Our waitress was just ok.. She brought over a dessert tray and never described what they were. She also took forever to bring over and then collect our check. I will not be rushing back.

    Both entrees were excellent. I had the special au gratin haddock and my wife had Chicken Fontina. Both were delicious and brought to us piping hot. The service was terrific. The restaurant was very busy but people were moving in and out and there was no wait for service. One issue that may impact whether I return is the parking situation. The lot was full and there was no street parking. I eventually found a spot about a five minute walk away and it was a little sketchy. They used to provide valet parking. It was sorely missed this time.
