    We like to try out different restaurants for special occasions but if we want to go to a place close to home we choose Don's Pomeroy House. We can always count on the food and service to be excellent. We have never tried the patio but have gone to the Pub for a less formal meal and enjoyed it just as well.

    We recently met friends for dinner at Don's Pomeroy, which proved to be a great dining experience. Our server, Tammy, was the best! The food, ambiance and recommendations made by Tammy added to the enjoyment of the evening. Don's is always a consideration for celebrating special occasions or an intimate dinner.

    The food was ok, but not worth the price. The ambience was ok, but tables were way too close together for such a small dining room. It was very loud when we went. The server had no personality and didn't even smile each time she came to the table. I will not be back.

    We were pleased with the restaurant staff in general, and with the food. My only complaint is, I asked for a very quiet table and we were seated by a table with children. The young lady was well behaved but the young man kept getting out of his seat or bouncing up and down in it. Since it was later in the evening and there were other available tables I can't imagine why the hostess didn't make a snap decision and seat us across the room. We enjoy this restaurant and will be back.

    Hi there, We were a little surprised that our 30-dollar Scallop entrée only included 3 scallops and a dollop of mashed potatoes. When they arrived they were lukewarm, along with my aunts pasta primavera which had crunchy undercooked vegetables. My wife's lamb however, was perfectly done and the right temperature which leads me to believe the kitchen was not timing the meals very well. This is also the first time we have seen pasta primavera with 3/4" wide soup noodles...but whatever...? They did take the scallops back and warm them to a proper serving temperature, .....without too much of a loss in texture. They also offered us a complimentary dessert to help make up for the problems. This place needs some work to get 5-stars

    I always enjoy Don's but this time after I had eaten and got home, I became extremely ill. I think I must have eaten something bad. I have never had that happen before, but makes me wonder! Also I am in a wheelchair and I wanted to use their bathroom only to discover, the only way to get up the flight of stairs which was on a stair glide meaning that I would have to try and transfer and they would drag my wheelchair up and down the stairs! This does not solve the accessibility problem for people who cannot transfer on to the chair! There are better solutions out there!!

    This is one of our favorite seafood restaurants. My husband does not like fish but I do. So far we never had fish there that to him taste "fishy". The grouper was really good. They have excellent scallops. We liked their calamari a lot. Service is excellent.

    We celebrated our anniversary and husband's birthday. Requested a quite table (per reviews) and they sat us in a little alcove. It was very private but could still see out into the dining room. Presented us with a very large éclair as a complementary dessert for the celebrations. I had the scallops from the Simply prepared section and they were melt in your moth (no sand) good. My husband had the Strip steak and it was prepared perfect, Medium had a warm pink center. Would definitely return.

    Uninspired menu except for the Brussels sprouts app with bacon, yum. The charcuterie was very boring and light handed for the $16 price tag. Pork chopp good, but nothing special. If you want a nice place for masking an impression, this is the place. If you are looking for a foodie experience, keep looking. Service was wonderful.

    I love Don's Pomeroy House but our lunch there recently was just so-so. Service was sub-par. When I asked abut the specials she said she would find out. shouldn't she already know? When she came back she read the off a card and wasn't even sure what some of it was. This is just too nice of a restaurant for that kind of service. The food was okay. I have had far better there.

    We had not visited in several years. And that was a mistake. Don's Pomeroy House is, in every way, a superior dining experience, and we won't let any time pass before our next visit. The food was exquisite, the service impeccable, and it was nice to be able to hear the people at our table without having to shout to be heard. Quiet is a virtue!

    My wife and I have been dining at the Pomerroy house for a number of years. We like to celebrate special occasions at the restaurant. Sunday we went with our youngest daughter and her husband to celebrate her 1st 29th birthday. We had an early dinner 4:00pm, the restaurant was not busy at that time and were seated immediately. The appetizers of calamari and stuffed mushrooms were delicious. The French onion soups and the seafood chowder were a hit. We ordered steaks and seafood all wonderfully prepared. When discovered we were celebrating a birthday our waitress bought out a large eclair with a burning candle that was shared by the table. Our waitress and the entire staff provided wonderful service. Dons Pomeroy House is a home run!

    We ate at Don's Pomeroy House to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. It was our first time there. I had requested reservations through OpenTable. I indicated on the reservation request that we were celebrating an anniversary and would like a cozy table. When we arrived, the hostess wished us a happy anniversary which I thought was attentive and lovely. We were seated at a very private and cozy table which was perfect for the occasion. A surprise chocolate éclair complete with candle arrived after we finished our dinner. The halibut and walleye we ordered was delicious and outstanding, and our server provided cheerful and excellent service. We would recommend this restaurant highly, and will dine there again.
