Our Story

Pepper's Landing is a restaurant group with multiple locations currently spread through Maine and New Hampshire, with its newest location being established in Old Town Maine. Pepper's Landing specializes in locally sourced, sustainable, Maine seafood, as well as other local favorites from the land. Pepper's Landing was named in honor of Pepper Martin, the grandfather of co-owner Morey Highbarger. Pepper was the kind of man who left people smiling, inspired and hopeful. He was always seen as a larger than life individual with all the humbleness needed to befriend countless individuals. Pepper was an icon to those who knew him in the state of Maine - he was a craftsman, hunter, fisherman, brewer, water skiing legend and an avid boxer to name a few things he was known for. Pepper's Landing is known for its fresh quality seafood and excellent service. Pepper's Landing is unique to many restaurants in its aspect of sourcing and supply chain. Morey Highbarger, co-owner, also founded and owns a wholesale seafood distribution company, which allows Pepper's Landing to control the supply and quality of the products it serves. Only sourcing of the freshest local ingredients. Pepper's Landing takes great pride in being an establishment that provides a space for guests to feel welcome and comfortable, all while being able to be a place to celebrate any special occasion. Pepper's Landing becomes involved and a part of every community it resides in. Our customers instantly become regulars once they experience the quality of food and service that is provided.
Our Ambition

*Interior improvements - The Old Town Location took an existing restaurant that was in need of new life, located in the heart of Old Town Maine on Main St. The interior improvements will represent the branding and color scheme of PL, and improve operational and customer experiences. *Exterior Patio improvements/expansion - The outdoors are an integral part of the brand, having outdoor seating and cooking experiences will provide a great way for guests to enjoy themselves and the picturesque views of the Penobscot river all while enjoying a well prepared meal. The current patio will be expanded for additional seating. An outdoor smoker and lobster cooker are being added to create the Pepper's experience. *Entertainment/ AV equipment - The purchases of these items will help to round out the experience Pepper's wants to provide. Providing live music from local soloists and bands, inside and outdoors, as well as video experiences that have documented the life of Pepper Martin, and amazing video of Marine life and nature.
