It was good. Steak well cooked; wine bottle at 30 usd. Nice and quiet atmosphere; I would recommend this restaurant. My wife loved the raviolis.

There are several options for vegetarians- from pizza to pasta or salad. The spinach ravioli is delicious. There is a nice patio with warmers and you can bring dogs with you. Good service and view of Villlage street was lovely.

Went here for lunch yesterday - we were seated quickly and the place was busy. The staff was very nice but seemed like they were functioning in slow motion. We indicated that we were from out of the area and trying to get up to ski after a long traffic slow down coming up to town. This didn't seem to... More

We had a great experience eating there Christmas Eve. Make sure you make a reservation way in advance or you have to wait a long time. If you can't get a reservation, its worth the wait.

We had dinner on 12/26 during the hight of ski season. Parking sucked but once in we were met by friendly staff and seated almost immediately. I ordered the peppercorn steak, my son pepperoni pizza and wife seafood pasta. All enjoyed their meals and will go back the next time in town.

The bacon wrapped prawns were to die for, the filet minion was perfect. The tables were very nice, low lighting, excellent wait staff. Great for a nice dinner in the... More

This place isn't the cheapest. Cocktails range in the $20 area but the food is delicious!!! So I didn't hate the bill I paid. I had the ricotta and spinach ravioli with a side of sweet potato mash. Do yourself the favor and get the mash! I've never had anything like it. It's heavenly!!! The place is small and has... More

I had the spicy flat iron steak with the peppercorn sauce. It was one of the best meals I've ever had. Look forward to a return visit.

We eat here every time we go to Big bear. Their ribeye's steak is amazing as is their salmon and cheese tortellini. Great atmosphere and the waiters are friendly and quick. Highly recommend Peppercorn!!
