Great meal. Portions are large. Hostess and waiter seemed to have a bit of an argument about table sizes when we checked in. Service was great until time to pay - took a long time for the waitress to come back - would have just left the payment but we wanted a bag for our three containers of leftovers (finally another waiter came by and saw right away we needed a bag without us asking). Have one of their many chocolate martinis - yummy!

Our experience was mediocre. Slow service because i believe they were understaffed that day, steak had no flavor and was tough even though it was medium rare... really loved the ambiance though

I love a restaurant that offers healthy meals not only for myself but for my children as well. Not all kids want to eat chicken fingers or mac and cheese, my children loved the steak and salmon options!

I made a special request to have sweet potato fries when we arrived because my girlfriend just loves them. And they actually made them even though they didn’t have them on their menu. Great service!

New Years Eve 2018 Delightful Dining experience, Waiter Jim exceptional with menu and specials for the evening, service was the best, additional servers for water bread and anything else one might need. Cocktails Choc Sig Martini's ridiculously scrumptious as always, Appetizers tasty and fresh, salads just as good, main courses could've been HOT rather then not coming direct from the kitchen to the table, noticed that with several other diners however the quality of the product was very tasty. Low noise even though at the lodge overnighters with small children were quiet. Waiting line out the door for seating, reservations recommended!Repeat dining experience sure to return and hopefully get JIM! Excellent Waiter!
