Diner Reviews
  • "I went to brunch on Sunday at 11:30am with my son for my birthday. The weather was nice and we were offered inside or outside seating. We chose to eat inside. Since it is summer their brunch crowd is not very busy. There was no need for a reservation. The buffet had a nice pasta, ham tetrazzini with pastry puffs, the usual ham, bacon, sausage. Scrambled eggs- mashed potatoes and a few hot sides. 4 really unique cold salads- a variety of fruits- pastries- waffles with topping and a very good prime rib with horseradish sauce. And their yummy crusty salty bread with butter. Not a ton of variety but what is offered is excellent food and interesting taste profiles. Great place to go instead of the chaos of larger buffets. Highly recommend."

  • "Everything from my fresh squeezed margarita to the kale salad I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. These days it's challenging trying to find a place that's worth spending the money. This was spot on!! Service was a but slow but we weren't in a hurry so it was nice."

  • "My husband and I have gone to The Turf Room quite a bit in the past for birthdays and our anniversary. Unfortunately, this last visit was very disappointing compared to the other times we were there. The ambience and cocktail menu were great. The food on the other hand was not good. We ordered the lobster bisque soup, like we always do, expecting it to be amazing as always and it just wasn't. We mentioned something to the waiter and he mentioned there is a new chef. :( We also ordered the filet and even though we ordered them medium rare they were hard to chew and the demi glaze was not good. I never write reviews but I felt I really needed too after this most recent experience. Would love to know where the previous chef went!!"

  • "We were at a table that was close to corner, separated by curtains from other tables. Table in corner was extremely loud - lots of drinking. Couldn't hear waiter when he first came to table. I complained, but he said they would be leaving in a few minutes. Extreme loudness continued throughout our meal and that party finally left as we were paying the bill. Waiter did not want to talk to them. Our appetizer and pasta dishes were average at best. They had fairly extensive drink menu, but without prices. Had a little surprise when we got the bill - $15 for each beer. I should have asked before ordering. I usually pay around $10 for this beer at other restaurants. Adds up fat"

  • "We have frequented this restaurant many times and always enjoyed our food. This weekend we took family from out of town and were quite disappointed. The air conditioner vents from above leaked on us the whole time and when we asked to move they said that all the tables were having the same issue. Real great to see dirty water leak on your plates and yourself. Then my husband ordered the bubba chop after the waiter made it sound so delicious, it was ordered medium and it came so well done and tough my husband didn't even eat much of it. The only thing that was good was dessert, French toast was yummy. All in all though I don't think we will make the drive again."

  • "Pros: Food, service & ambience were awesome! Had short ribs which were tremendous! Cons: Very loud patrons tho which put a damper on our evening. Need to dampen acoustic sound somehow."

  • "This is my husband's favorite restaurant, so we go back again and again. The service is perfect every time, the bar is fun, the dining room is intimate, and the patio is just perfect. This time, we had our two year old with us; my husband was nervous they wouldn't be built for kids, but they have a great kids menu with special trays just for the meals. Warning- they put a big cookie right on there, so if that is going to make dinner difficult for you, maybe ask them to hold off. The wine list is extensive and great, and the signature drinks have not disappointed, either! The one and only thing I would change here would be the dessert menu. Doesn't measure up to the dining menu."

  • "Sat outside with two other couples. Service was OK till food came. Couple # 1 was served food about 3 to five minutes before other food was served. Sat there looking at food getting cool while waiting for others to get their sandwiches. One hamburger ordered med rare came out bloody. A bit expensive..a Reubens and ice tea was just under 16. Doubt I will go back"

  • "The friend of us has recommended this pace. We choose it primarily because of location - ~5mins from our house. The service was very fast and just in the right time, no annoyance. The food was very good and the portion size was just right. It would be good to have noise level somewhat lower, but, oh well, the place was crowded... We like this western style, definitely will come again."

  • "My wife an I arrived during happy hour, the happy hour wine was different but good. We decided to try a couple appetizers, they just didn't cut it. The margarita flatebread was burned and very oily, the parma ham had more than enough proscutto but only 3 tiny figs the size of peanuts and a very small scoop of goat cheese not a good balance of product. We thought before dinner we should try something else thinking if it turns out to be a 3rd strike we are out of here. Unfortunately it was we ordered the Ahi Tuna Tacos, 3 very tiny little shells apeared with a few shavings of ahi in each, bearly a bite size each. We left at that...I will note our server, Kristie or kristal in the bar was very attentive, fun saved the experiance."

  • "I was at the Turf Room on Saturday 6/21 with my family to celebrate a very special birthday. It was the first visit for all of us. 1) Front desk - We were met by an extremely rude hostess who barely greeted the dining party. 2) Seating - Our reservation clearly stated a party of 5 and we were taken to a 4 top while the waitress figured out how to seat us at the four top. While we waited for 10 minutes, another gentleman came along and seated us at a table for six. 3) Food and dessert - Short ribs came with a potato side that tasted like grease at best, mashed potatoes tasted like glued powder, and meat loaf consisted of 3 bite sized slider portions of meat loaf. The best part of the entire experience was the waiter who was quite nice."

  • "We've been dining at Turf Room for years. We love both the patio and the fireplace. We enjoy the food and would eat there more often but the non-meat choices are very limited. (My daughter is vegetarian, no fish and limited cheese and I don't only eat red meat). However, what is offered is very good (just wish there was more of the good stuff!) Thank you for another lovely experience :)"

  • "Our dining experience was so great that we asked to speak to a manager and let him know. (We never do this!) The server did an excellent job explaining the menu and since it was our first time there, he gave some excellent recommendations! The food was great as well, I had the flat iron steak and it was cooked perfectly. I usually have the filet mignon, but thought I would save the $10 and I'm glad I did!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "A great restaurant that has fallen far & quickly. The prime flat iron was neither prime or a flat iron cut. The garlic mashed potatoes were bland. The lemon on the asparagus just wasn't there. The worst was the chicken filo. The chicken tasted old and institutionalized. It's sad to see such a great place go this way."

  • "Didn't even know this place was there but heard about it from friends. The food was very good. My husband ordered the filet and it was cooked perfectly. I ordered the duck and my only negative comment is that they didn't get the fat rendered on the duck so it was a bit chewy and had to cut if away before eating. Huge wine list, lots of options especially if you eat in the Wine Room. The blue cheese stuffed tempura mushrooms are ridiculously good. We really enjoyed our meal and loved the ambience."

  • "Made it a good time, hated the table could not see the TV that I asked to be seated by to watch the Belmont Stakes. When asked if there was something they could do for us, the Hostess was very rude and did not want to even try to accommodate us "said you can try to move if you want" unacceptable in the service industry, people like that should not be in that job. If you are this type of personality DO NOT be in the service. I too worked in service for 15 yrs. and no matter how busy or the stress your under, always be friendly and accommodate your customers. If not for customers you would not be in business and you would not have a job. "

  • "describes the beef filet. I gasped when I saw my partner cut into his filet with the butter knife! THAT is tender, and perfectly medium rare- no charred outside/raw within! Flatbread was exquisite! Scallop app was interesting but not notable. Lobster bisque flavorful but too tangy for my taste. I prefer the "sweet meat" flavor of the shellfish.Shortrib was tender and I could sub asparagus for carrots but the potato "thing" was charred beyond edibility.Stick with garlic mash. Terrific poached pear salad,enough for 2..Sorry, NO room for dessert!! any wonder?"

  • "The turf room changed many menu items and took several off. Destroyed salmon and sea bass - where are the lobster corn dogs , rice or baked potatoes? and really upping your martini prices to the cost of a six pack? We've been long time a Turf surfers but with not happy with all changes. Fox fire in Geneva becoming our top pic. "

  • "The Turf Room has been one of our favorites-for several years yet we ate there in April and were disappointed. We decided to try again and the experience was better, but still not as good as when the previous chef was there. Not sure where he went, but some of those dishes are missing from the menu and we miss them. Again, as in April, our server neglected us, but the restaurant was very busy. It appears there are plenty of support staff, yet we still had long waits and no refills for our beverages. "

  • "Great food, excellent appetizers, and great service. The only thing we would have improved was to turn the lights up a bit. The lights were dimmed to help create ambience and make things perhaps more romantic, but it was so dark my wife and I could barely see the menu. We ended up using the light on her cell phone."
