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.

We were visiting family in the area and they suggested Red Pepper for a nice lunch. Good suggestion! The menu has something for every taste. Service was good. We chose to sit inside but the outer area looked inviting. Hope to return.

I have been a critic of The Red Pepper in the past. Here Friday night for a friends birthday, they have a band playing. I actually was warming to this place, the atmosphere was nice with the band, patio area, and the dance floor. And that is where the problem lies... many of the servers are dancing to the electric...

They offer a large room inside and outside seating is also available. The variety of food choices also helps when meeting with a larger group. The wait staff and the atmosphere are always pleasant. The food is... More

My wife and I just returned from a late lunch at The Red Pepper. The Bistro Fries are outstanding and are large enough to share with your table. Their BLT's are prepared perfectly on toasted rye. As previously stated, the pickles have a unique flavor and are made at the restaurant. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and... More

I just enjoyed the best sweet pickle I've ever had. Christina made these. What a comfortable elegant place to enjoy time with friends. Excellent meal and service. They love what they do and they do it well. Get the pickle. It's. The. Best.
