Food was too salty, overpriced for the quality we got. It might have been a one-off, but atmosphere and everything else was fine.

We have been going to Cameron’s since they opened and have never been disappointed. The only negative thing I can say is that when they are crowded, it can be a little noisy. Their service staff is very professional and Keith, the general manager, always makes a point of stopping to chat with us. We are regulars.

While our meal was absolutely delicious- this was the first time in a llllong time that we’ve had to speak to management about poor service, which was not at all attributed to a staffing shortage. Our server was really “the absent minded professor”. We were an after thought from the time we sat down. Once our entrees arrived we were completely invisible to him. He passed our table 10 times (it became a game for us to count his attentiveness to other tables) while never saying a word to us, even when it was clear we were done with our meals. We had intended to enjoy dessert and coffee before asking for our check. But frankly we couldn’t get out of there fast enough when it was clear our server was not interested in serving us. Management was apologetic and gracious, and that was appreciated.

Excellent food. Everyone at our table was happy with what they ordered. My son ordered the steak, and let me try it. Wow! It was out of this world delicious. Our waiter, James, gave us awesome service. Definitely a 5 star evening!

There is no higher evaluation..... truly EXCEPTIONAL!!! The whole experience, from the waitstaff to the decor to the FOOD was beyond good. This was the first time we tried the signature Walleye dish and I have no idea why we waited - don’t miss this! The scallops are the best as well. And dessert.....creme brûlée!

The food was fantastic and so was the service by Mohamed. I feel the bread was even nicer, the sourdough baked bread was better than last year. I swear the Cameron’s Walleye dinner is better than before too.
I love this place.

Cameron’s has always been our favorite restaurant in the chain. It’s a hidden gem with loads of atmosphere and classic Cameron Mitchell high level of service.

But it is pricing itself out of the market. The Walleye dinner is now $35. Not a bigger portion. Comes with mashed pity and green beans. That’s it. I wish I had been keeping track over the years how prices have risen but recently it’s been a spike. I know the pandemic hit everyone especially restaurants, but I don’t think it’s worth the price anymore...or at least for a family or group. Maybe date night will be it.

Again, service is great but the prices have outpaced the product.

Haven’t been here since the pandemic, what a treat to return at last. Service was top notch. Food was perfect. Same menu as prepandemic but that is certainly understandable.

Two of us had scallops and two had lake Erie walleye. Both dishes were prepared perfectly. Our server Dawna is the best. She got our orders straight, she kept us well supplied with ice water, as we were thirsty. Two managers stopped by to check on us and check on our food (Keith and Renee).

This is a wonderful restaurant for any occasion. We were catching up with old friends. The restaurant is quiet so we could hear each other and carry on a nice conversation.

My boyfriend and I enjoy our dates at Cameron’s. This was our first date venue back in March 2020. Each time we get the opportunity to come back for dinner it is further reminder of a start with wonderful choices made, both in dating and dinner selections. James was our server, who has consistently greeted us with warmth and recognition and takes great care of us while there. PS, we are happy to see the sliced bread return. The rolls just were not the same.

A long time favorite restaurant that never disappoints. Three of us ordered the haddock and we all agreed it was delicious. My friend ordered the scallops, she’s had them before, and loves how they are prepared. Another meal with good friends.

Who would have thought that the most delicious fried chicken was at a Cameron Mitchell restaurant? My husband had the walleye and can't stop talking about it. This is definitely on the list of favorites!!

Spouse's birthday celebration. The Scallops and the Korean Braised Short Ribs were both excellent. Attractively presented as well as delicious. The complementary birthday dessert and acknowledgement was most appreciated, too. Always a terrific meal!
