Got together here for a family lunch on a Sunday...a little busy, but were seated quickly. Has large screen TV for viewing sports. Food was delicious, many menu choices.

Always love the Peppery! It is our go to place for lunch or dinner. We have never had a bad meal or even a so so meal here. The wait staff are always fast and efficient! The specials are always good and their French fries are the best!

My hubby and I stopped in on a hungry whim. We have passed by many times and observed the lot nearly always full. This day it was cold and rainy and the parking lot was not full, so we decided to give it a try. Parking in the lot can be tricky as most parking is uphill. But parking is... More

I've only been once but want to go back. I had the gumbo which was a little disappointing but not bad. It was extra thick like it was the bottom of the pot.

Nice independent, casual restaurant. Many items are hot or peppery, hence the name, but there's plenty for tender tongues too. I had the seafood linguini and it was very good, with a very generous serving of seafood, scallops, prawns and baby shrimp. Very reasonable prices, only downside might be the house wine wasn't very good, but in fairness was very... More

The service is great, food is great (big variety) any plate is good....The food is always fresh and steaks are consistently tender and well cooked. Waitresses are attentive and pleasing. Service is prompt and waiting is very short...I highly recommend this place to anyone passing through or living in the area.....

Thank JOSE P
