Great food, attentive service, welcomed our multi generation family group and arranged an off menu order without hesitation, even though the restaurant was packed and the kitchen must have been extra busy.

Very nice ambiance with delicious food options. Unfortunately we had a problem with our meal today as one of the steaks came out rare not medium as we ordered. Our server ordered another replacement, however we were not able to dine together. The server did not offer to buy a drink or dessert to make up for the mistake and the manager did not stop by our table. I would expect a better response from the staff or managers in this type of restaurant.

There wasn't any parking very close and hard to find.
There weren't many choices for vegetarians, except salads and appetizers.
The choices my friend and I made were exceptionally delicious. We had the Bruscetta and Stained Glass Salad an a Caesar Salad.

We went to Pepperwoods for my hubby's bday in July and then back in August for mine. Both times we had the absolute pleasure of being served by Gabby. She is personable and attentive and one of the best servers we have come across. I changed uo my dish a little and the chef was bery accommodating. The presentation was very nice and food excellent. Will definitely be back

We had a great time at Pepperwood. Our server (unfortunately I cannot remember her bame) was very attentive and gave her honest opinion of food and drink choices, suggesting a couple of craft beers we became very fond of. The ambiance was cozy with great music providing the backdrop. The food was excellent and brought out in timely fashion. We will be going back!

I ordered the Steak Frites medium rare and asked the server for extra crispy frites. She told me they weren't using their regular fry supplier and to try the ones they were using. The steak arrived well done and the frites were regular french fries under cooked and limp. I informed the server that the steak was overcooked and the fries lacking. She offered to take it back and get me a new one but everyone else at my table had been served and I didn't want to keep them waiting. They removed the meal from our bill, but that is not the point. Honestly, how difficult is it to grill a steak properly to order.

The food was good. Staff was kind however the service was extremely slow. We asked to have our table moved to the patio several times and they kept forgetting. It took roughly 45 min before we even got our drinks. Not the worst, not the best.

Pepperwood was awesome! We sat on the patio and enjoyed the great view of Lake Ontario, and loved the very large craft beer list they have both on tap and bottled. Food was very good and our server was very friendly. Highly recommend and we will be back!

I went here once quite a few years ago and thought it was alright, but i was seriously impressed when we went there on the weekend for a birthday. i can't stop going on about my tex mex burger and sweet potato fries i'm drooling just writing about it. Even though we couldn't et a spot outside our table near the back was super cosy and felt quite private i love the feel of the decor. i'm already planning on going back next weekend!

We went for Mother's Day brunch. I had no idea that you could not order from the regular menu and that brunch buffet was the only option. Their website did not specify that was what was happening for Mother's Day. Although everything was tasty, not sure I would have gone there as I have 2 small children and it was pretty pricy. For 4 adults and 2 children the bill was $300. Of course included in that was 5 alcoholic drinks but still. Would I go back? Yes but maybe not on Mother's Day but just for their regular Sunday brunch menu. Their eggs Benedict are really good!

Service was poor. Had reservation but had to wait 20 mins for table. Server did not give the soup of the day without being asked. Brought the wrong drink even after a discussion with her about it. Was not attentive except to say was going on a break and then was leaving wanted us to cash out so she could leave. FYI we had only been there barley an hour.

The service was awful, the salad was decent but the shrimp add-on was literally the price of the entire salad. We ordered mussels and most of the shells were empty so we were told they probably fell to the bottom of the pot... they didn't. The shells were just empty. I used to love this place and I'm becoming really disappointed with the service and food.

Pepperwoods has been around for a long time, but still feels vibrant and inviting. The food was excellent, although the pork chop I ordered was over-done. Service was very quick and the staff was friendly. There are a wide selection of beers on tap which is always great. I would definitely go back.
