    A friend and I had lunch at Pepper's and both our meals were delicious! My friend had a Jean Lawson with potato salad and I had the lite plate with grilled salmon. Both meals cooked to perfection. Parker, our waitress, was extremely personable and offered great service! Thanks Josh and Peppers for another wonderful experience.

    My family and I ate at peppers on our vacation. We all agreed that we will not be back. Food took a long time to come out. I didn’t mind this since I know staffing can be an issue for most restaurants. However, I ordered the steak and taters. It was supposed to be medium rare and it was charcoaled. My husband ordered meatloaf and he did not like it either. It’s a nice place and could have potential but food needs an upgrade.

    Made reservations for Valentines dinner..and was seated promptly by 2 sweet hostesses, ordered drinks, then went to order our dinner. We are then informed we can order off the sadwich side of the menu but the kitchen is not making any more entrees, nor are they serving any more of the Valentines special...which I why made the reservation 🤷‍♀️ not to have a burger or sandwich. Left and cooked at our rental bc everything was full (understandably hence why I made a reservation). Night ruined Thanks.

    Unfortunately the experience was very disappointing The server was very nice and tried here best to salvage things as they continued to escalate. The most disappointing aspect was the quality of the food. Hopefully this was just an off night for the entire team working that night.

    Flash fried okra to die for. Only other restaurant I’ve had them at was in Tampa. Excellent French Onion soup. Noise level was to be expected in that atmosphere. Wait staff had issues but that too was expected with the labor shortage. Will go again.

    Normally good, but problems this visit including sandwich left out ingredients, burger had enough salt for several, soup not delivered. Service was less probably because they also were bartenders. If an automatic gratuity had not been billed (party of 6), it would have been less. In the long run, we recommend.

    Super welcoming staff! We were all impressed by the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. We had a part of teen and the accommodated us almost immediately. Food was good. Nothing really stood out as superb but everyone seemed to be satisfied with their choices. Portions are more than adequate. Onion rings app was just ok.
