We love the Red Pepper! I can't speak of many of the items on the menu, because we always get the fillet. It is excellent! The service is good and if a band is playing it is fun to dance outside. If the weather is nice it is their outside area for dining is great.

Dropped in with some friends to celebrate my birthday. Music provided by Anybody's Guess. Excellent! Food was tasty, a little pricey, but worth what you get. If you're looking for a fun place to hang out for a little while, The Red Pepper should be one of your choices!

First off, whatever you do, do not let them seat you in the very odd back of the restaurant that looks to have been annexed from the sewing store next door. Whole place had an odd setup with no personality or soul. Our food was a big let down other than the parmesan truffle fries which were excellent. Two of... More

We stopped in last evening (live music on Thursdays) and split a Cobb salad with a bottle of wine. It was cool (this being January) but they had the propane heaters strategically placed around the patio, which is covered with attractive tarps; it is covered, but it doesn'e FEEL covered. Our waitress, Taylor, was excellent, the music by Whiskey Run... More

A great casual spot for lunch or dinner. The food is good but the friendly staff make you feel like they're actually your friends. Laid back and if you choose a time when there's live music it's even better.

New menu, great service, altogether a great experience. Try the blackened chicken or burger. Finally a place in Aiken where one can get spice if you want it.

Aiken's best patio hands down! Eclectic and varied menu. Great service. Support those who have the vision and courage to not be a chain restaurant.
