    Made a reservation a week ago on OpenTable and not sure why they don't take reservations on game nights. We ended up having to wait 25 minutes for a table.

    We had a reservation and our table was ready right away. It was 15 minutes before we were greeted. Ordered drinks, staggered delivery of those, pointed and ordered from happy hour menu for appetizers and specifically asked which beers were part of the domestic list for the happy hour pricing and ended up being charged the regular menu pricing- there was fine print at the end which was pointed out instead of when we ordered. The manager also came to the table & was condescending and unwilling to reduce the bill. It was the first time we ever had an issue.

    Unfortunately the food was cold and very salty. The amount of tv’s was ridiculous. I don’t think you can focus on one game or anything for that matter. Place was clean. Not a lot a people for a Saturday. We went there because it was the only restaurant that wasn’t completely booked on a Saturday.

    We live about 2 hours away but were in the area visiting something else. My 9 year old son chose this restaurant. We had a 6pm reservation however no one acknowledged us on took any part of our order for over 30 minutes. I finally went back to the hostess stand to see who our waitstaff was. She apologized & promptly got someone to take care of us. I believe it was just an oversight & realize these things happen occasionally, so I’d visit again in the future.

    Another enjoyable tasty meal at Peppinos. Love their variety of pizzas (Ultimate Meat is our fave), wraps, better-than-the-usual-pub-fare appetizers (fried pickles and mozzarella sticks were delicious), and selection of beers/drinks. Have had great service the three times we’ve visited since we moved downtown in April.

    This is the third time. I have been to pepper's in two weeks. This was the worst experience by far. I invites a friend to enjoy the pizza. The pizza came out a soggy disappointment. I also had the wings with turn out to be excellent. The waitress was a bit to familiar call me girl and other names you would call a friend. This was a complete turn off!

    The food and service was great! However, tables were not being seated 6ft apart and I don’t feel as if they following COVID protocols with the number of people in the restaurant. I felt very uncomfortable even after asking to move tables.

    After being seated by the host we sat for about 15 minutes without being greeted by a single other employee. There was a group of servers at the back talking amongst themselves and helping their other tables, and I had even made eye contact with a few and nobody came over to even say hi. There were quite a few servers and only 3 tables other than ours so it wasn’t that they were busy, they were just clearly being lazy. We ended up leaving and finding a different restaurant which is unfortunate because we were really looking forward to trying this place and will probably not return because of this. You would think people would be more interested in providing at least subpar customer service given how the restaurant industry is right now but apparently not. *no I am not a middle aged Karen either, I’m a 25 year old who was looking to just have a good meal and tip well just because people are struggling.

    The service was horrible and yet it wasn't busy. Took 20 minutes plus to get first round of drinks and another hour for food. We had a party of 8 with a very large tab. Very disappointed.

    Food was good, service was poor. Seems like it was server’s 1st or 2nd day on job. Waited long time for drink order and had to ask where our drinks were. When server returned told they were out, then our pizza came out incorrect and server said oh I didn’t hear you say no mushrooms. But after made correctly was great until bill. Tried charging for the drink they were out of a for a 2nd pizza. Bill was quickly corrected. Like I said pretty sure server was new as we have been here many times without any issues. Yes would go back again.

    I have been here a few times great food and people. This time we had a waitress that did check on us very often. Had empty drinks most of time. seemed like she didn’t want to be at work. Overall we had a good time wish we had a different waiter. Definitely will be back tho.
