Peppercorn Grille is my families favorite spot! The food is creative, and always prepared to perfection. The menu has something for everyone and the patio on the main drag of Big Bear is the perfect place to people watch and enjoy a great meal.

Everything was awesome. Steaks cooked perfectly. The menu is pretty expensive, and there's no kids' menu, at least we didn't see one. Service was excellent. It was hot in there, though. I had to step outside to cool off.

Great service! The warm bruschetta appetizer is SO DELICIOUS! My five spice pork tenderloin was lacking in flavor and a little over cooked, spicey rice was dry and not tastey. My dining partners seafood pasta entree was excellent.
