    Diner 1 had a salmon salad which was very good. Diner 2 had a burger that was very good. Diner 3/4 had the taco special which would not be purchased again. Margaritas were not very tasty.

    We ordered the lamb loin (medium rare)with squash as a veggies and smashed potatoes. It was great. Of the two entrees, one was cooked perfectly to medium rare. The other, however, was cooked medium. The spumoni bomba for dessert is always killer!

    Earlier dinner (5:15 pm) with window table view of the golf course was perfect. Prompt service from our waitress. Ordered Brussels and Ahi Poke Nachos appetizers for dinner which was just right and very tasty. Very pleasant ambiance and not loud at all.

    VERY disappointed as they advertised for the special of Corn Beef and Cabbage on Saturday night and when we arrived for our 7pm reservation they had already run out. Why not plan on making MORE than enough especially since the following day was St. Patrick's Day and I'm sure they would have sold any remaining. This happens a lot with the "Specials" there over the years.

    Excellent experience all around. Delicious food (seafood pasta, fig pizza and cheeseburger). Good wine and mixed drinks, using house brands. Our server was very friendly and efficient. Unlike many restaurants these days, the noise level was perfect and allowed our party of 4 to enjoy our conversation without having to raise our voices.

    We ordered the Salmon Wellington. It was perfectly cooked and delicious. We also ordered the 14 oz. Rib-eye Steak au poivre which was very tender, well-marbled, and delicious. Just a little too much pepper and could use more of the sauce, but still delicious. The only criticism is that the loaded baked potato could have been warmer. However, it was delicious too!

    I gave an extra star because the waiter was upbeat and did his job well. But, I ordered the Ahi and it came with artificial grill marks and tasted like it had been precooked, frozen and then thawed and reheated for the plate. I can’t prove that was the order of operation but that’s what it tasted like. Sent it back and got pizza. Didn’t go to Adelina’s to get pizza but that’s what happened.

    Four of us ordered. The baby back ribs were excellent! The special portabello mushroom entree was very good. The chicken medallions with mushrooms were excellent. My ribeye started out good and lean and tasted great. Unfortunately, I began getting a lot of grizzle. By the time I finished the steak, there was a pile of grizzle equal to an eighth of the size of the steak. It was inedible. At $55/ steak, I expected more. Service was excellent as usual!

    I really can't review most things because after standing at the podium next to the sign that said "please wait to be seated" and being ignored not only by the restaurant staff but by some woman manning the desk to the club house, I finally left. The bartender and waitress saw me but did not acknowledge me in any way and no one came over We ended up going to the restaurant at the golf course where the staff is always welcoming and had a terrific meal. I've heard good things about this restaurant but that experience leaves me with no desire to try again.
