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.

Me and some buddies came to watch a game. Everything was awesome, great service, everyone was really nice and our pizza was incredible. Our server/bartender Cameron B. was affable, conscientious and kind. We all had a wonderful experience. Thank you guys so much.

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.

The food was great, however it was cold due to the slow service. Food took a lot longer than expected, however it was a holiday so we took that into consideration.

Appreciated the great options in sides, I was able to order three vegetable dishes for my meal. The cider suggestion by the server was good, I would have never considered it.

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.

It took a while for our server to get to the table but it was completely understandable with how busy they were! She was super nice and was working so hard! The food came just the way we wanted!

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.

They do a nice job of serving to a wide variety of guests. I will say that when we last visited, there was a family that had no control over their small children. Nothing you can do about that, just be prepared. They were playing Jenga and we never quite got over the crashing noise of it.

I made a reservation on line the night before. I was called by the restaurant 3 hours before my reservation and told they were not taking reservations for that evening, a mistake was made. They offered nothing. We still went, party of 4. There were 4 tables marked "reserved"
Although there always a handful of open tables, our service was mediocre, food took a long time.
