Peppercorn's Grille and Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Arrived on an extremely busy Sat. Night - glad we had reservations. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time, in a nice, comfortable booth. My husband likes to order the beer flights, and he was happy with his choices. Wine for me - basic wine list.
I ordered the stuffed haddock, my husband ordered "hand of the chef" which is a surprise entree. My meal was delicious and flavorful, accompanied by mashed potatoes and julienned fresh summer veggies, but his was spectacular. He had crab over haddock over fresh pasta, newberg sauce over all. Amazing!
Service was wonderful - friendly and attentive. Food came out in a reasonable time frame - surprising considering how busy the place was. I. guess there's a reason why Peppercorn's is so popular. Will be back again and again.
Danielle, our waitress, was quick, professional & all courses of our meals were seamless. Our drinks were delivered in timely fashion & delicious. The meal choices were diverse & sounded scrumptious. We always are disappointed with one aspect of s visit to a restaurant but all 6 of us had nothing but glowing words.
Excellent and varied menu with some seasonal surprises and creative selections. Food and service are consistently good. Dined twice in one week. Lively atmosphere but a bit too loud for quiet conversation. Overall would recommend as a great casual option. Thanks.
Clark students arriving on campus and a new summer seafood recipe made for a festive and tasty late dinner for these out of town visitors. We enjoyed the Chef's flavorful take on our lobster roll and shrimp pasta dinners. Local craft beer rounded out our enjoyment of this restaurant.
This was my husband and I's first visit to Peppercorns, I enjoyed that they had gluten free options and he loved his Tips & Newberg! Although I didn't ask, I assumed the gluten free options had gluten free breadcrumbs as many of them were "breaded" so I was slightly disappointed when my buffalo chicken tenders came out without any crunchy breadcrumbs. Overall though the quality was still good and delicious. The best part was the gluten free dessert! I drag my husband to alot of different restaurants to try new gluten free menus for myself, and he loved Peppercorns in comparison to some of the other places I have taken him. We also received very good & prompt service which added to our whole experience!
The last two times at Peppercorn's have been disappointing. Prices are high compared with other places. We were seated next to a table with five noisy toddlers. Perhaps with a group like that, a more removed place could be given. The food is generally good but getting pricey. I doubt we'll go back.
Very few people at the restaurant when we visited. We were there a bit before the evening rush. The food had wonderful variety, and the two entrees we got were great, and as would be expected with a nearly empty restaurant, the waiter was attentive. Their beer selection is very good as well. We got a build-your-own flight of four beers that enabled us to try what looked interesting.
I've never been to Worcester so we weren't sure what to expect but the food was out of this world!! We went for Father's Day and started with risotto balls (amazing) the mimosa flight- pear, mango, and pomegranate (pomegranate was the best). My brother got the Hangover Calzone from the brunch menu, it was huge and very filling. My mom had the blueberry cheesecake french toast which was succulent but not too sweet; we aren't huge pecan fans but liked it nonetheless. From the regular menu my dad got the pretzel coated chicken which had an awesome mustard sauce on and it the croquettes it came with were his favorite part. The ambiance is very relaxed and family friendly- definitely not fancy by any means- but still good for an occasion.
We were 15 minutes late for our reservation and they could not have been more gracious about it, although I am sure that was a pain. We have been here 2 or 3 times (it's not very close to home) but have loved it every time. Steak tips and newburg was awesome, and the sides were just as good.
Problems with acknowledging OpenTable reservation, server seemed very spacey, or even under the influence, mixed up drinks and meals, brought us another tables leftovers, aside from this service was good, light above table was far too bright and left my vision blurry. Food was good.
I think they took on too many reservations they could handle. It was a graduation dinner (6 of us). We noticed other tables had bread and oil, when I inquired they said "only on request" if it's your first time how do you know to request?? Also they had a "secret chef special" which they would give zero information about - it was A "surprise" what if you had an allergy? This is a bad idea.
Our server was not attentive and didn't seem like she was invested in providing a good experience at all. We found the food to be ok but not exceptional. We will not be back.
The only reason the noise level was so high was because it was graduation day and the day before Mother's Day. I've been here before and it wasn't at all like that. The service was slow, but we totally understood and were visiting with family/friends anyway.
We all enjoyed our lunch dishes and it so happens that two of us have a date with friends in a couple of weeks and I'm sure they'll enjoy the experience as well!
