Was my go to place on vacation for a decade. The food is incredible but table service keeps getting worst. On my last visit we waited 25 minutes to place our order.We knew what we wanted when we walked in. 20 minutes for drinks and 45 minutes for food after the 25 we waited to order. The server avoided us... More

5 of us had a birthday dinner here and enjoyed the casual country décor. The service was excellent. The menu was a little small but covered all the basics and elegant choices. The mushroom soup was as good as homemade. My steak was huge and cooked perfectly as requested. The sides were fresh locally sourced and a great compliment to... More

16 of us stayed at the Red Umbrella Inn, and they recommended the Pepper Mill Steak & Pasta House for one of our dinners. We reserved a table there on Monday, Sept. 26th & were pleasantly surprised with the comfortable interior. They had a waitress for us which was very attentive & pleasant. A great variety of meals on the... More

Unfortunately it is now so noisy that I found myself shouting just to be heard by my table mates. The service was quite satisfactory though just a... More

I think to call yourself a steakhouse you half to offer more than 2 kinds of steak, (NY strip and flat iron), and more than one kind of pasta. Salad was only an ice burger lettuce salad with shredded carrot, one grape tomato and one slice of cucumber. The NY strip was flavourless, thin, over cooked and HEAVILY seasoned with... More

The food in this restaurant is terrible. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. To bad though, they are right off the highway.

We have driven by this lovely restaurant several times but have never stopped by. For my mother's birthday we decided to go here for dinner. We were told reservations can only be made until 6pm. So we arrived with our reservation at 6, by 6:10 the restaurant filled very fast and the waitress told us you can wait up until... More
