I came with a friend. Neither of us was drinking, so we ordered tea - to say that the water was tepid is not going far enough. Tea has to be made with boiling water, and this water was cool enough to wash my hands in. When we mentioned it to the server, she said something about liablility if a... More

We've been here several times and except for last night, we've always had an excellent experience worthy of "5" ratings for both food and service. Last night was a birthday celebration before attending the theatre. We gave ourselves plenty of time to dine comfortably so we wouldn't need to rush. Unfortunately, our waitress was not attentive and seemed to be... More

Celebrating my 70th birthday with 25 friends, apps and wine were excellent but not inexpensive. A good time was had by all.

We went out for an impromptu dinner to catch up and had a great time with Gabrielle as our waitress. She was very friendly and it was nice to be able to chat with her as well!

This is a great place at the waterfront to sit outside and enjoy the weather of if you like people watching. Service is not too bad, but a bit pricey for my taste. It is packed in the summer time especially when they have bands at Spencer Smith Park. You can see almost everything. Good place to visit in the... More

This is a wonderful spot for lunch or dinner. A little elegant, but not fussy. The food is good and the service is excellent. Try the salmon. It's my favourite -- moist and flavourful. The pizza is quite good, too. Whatever I order, I always have the Heritage Blend salad. On Sundays, there's live music. And on warm summer days,... More

On a nice day, there is nothing finer than sitting on their patio enjoying the view of the lake (across the street in Spencer Park). The food is served nice and hot and there are a variety of dishes to choose from. We have enjoyed breakfast lunch and dinner at the Pepperwood and will continue to do so when we... More

Came here quite a number of times. Just the right atmosphere for couples and an adult family gathering. Great selections of local beers and drafts on tap. Will return.

I was joined by about 25 colleagues from Compassion Society, food bank and more, at our annual dinner celebrating the hard work and accomplishments of our many volunteers. Rarely have I experienced such friendly and efficient service for a group this size. The servers were excellent and we thank them profusely. As usual, the meals were excellent, especially my salmon... More

This place is on the Lake and facing beautiful Spencer's Park. Its always busy along that street with lots to look at. Sometimes you can see a Ship go by. Its a lovely place to people watch or just relax and have dinner.
