The loaded nachos with pot roast meat was phenomenal.
The outdoor seating area was quiet and beautiful on a temperate day.

Wings were a big let down, dry and skinny... what happened?!? They used to be the best around.

The location is beautiful and the food is really good. That is the only positive thing I have to say. I had rather high hopes for this restaurant, good reviews and at a country club with outdoor seating.

I had reservations via open table and we were seated right away. I heard one hostess say to another Richard again? And a shoulder shrug was given. We were seated at a nice table outside but had to open the umbrella ourselves and it was slightly tricky. We waited 10 minutes for our server order drinks, soup and food right then and there.

The soup came before we had drinks, silverware even water. The server was NO WHERE in sight. I asked another server who was literally just standing there and it was as if I had asked for his first born. Then ad we are eating I recieved a phone call from the restaurant asking if I was still coming for our reservation. I told her, we are here eating in the patio, she apologized and just hung up.

The food then came out before we got the drinks. Luckily the food was good. We saw the waiter one more time I had to find someone else to take the check for payment who took it to my server and left me standing there.

We live 8 minutes away and I would have loved for this to become a go to spot but we will not be going back.

My family enjoys going here... the view out on to the course, the good beer selection, and the good food with good portion sizes. It's perhaps a little pricey but not outrageous. The chips and guac was good but you get lots of chips and nowhere near enough guac. I had a Prime Rib dip that was excellent.

Six of us in Itasca for the FedX BMW, and this restaurant was close to our hotel. The reviews were good enough to get us us to try this restaurant. Our experience was fine, food was good, our waitress apparently was fairly new because she left the table numerous times to get answers to our questions. With that said we would recommend this restaurant.

A surprisingly excellent place to eat! "Surprising" because as a non-member, I don't typically think of a country club as a place to dine. I'm so glad I did.

Definitely going to come back to try their other enticing menu items.

Our service was not what he should have been. Server never checked on us, we had to track him down for beverage refills and to check on food after a 45 minute wait.

I have no issue with the food or service, generally, but our last experience included a waiter dumping a tray of drinks on my lap and shoes. Accidents happen, for certain. I wasn't angry nor did I yell or chastise the server - rather, I told him I understand these things happen and not to let it worry him. Nonetheless, MINIMALLY we should have had our drinks covered (no alcohol, just soft drinks) and if it was my restaurant I would have made sure the person affected would have a free meal, too. That this did not happen, even with the manager/owner present and aware, we will not return to this restaurant. Very disappointed and my only recourse is to take my business elsewhere.

Got a break in the rainy weather and got to sit on the patio. Patrice and Johnna were our servers, and they were on top of everything, friendly and welcoming. Our food was great, no long wait and everything was delicious.

The only drawback to the patio is the cigar smoking, every time we're seated out there it seems the person next to us is smoking like a chimney. Wish they'd keep that to one corner or section of the patio, not the whole patio.

Wouldn’t allow customers to eat at the tables outside even though there were tables open, only because they wanted to fill seating inside. Even though I had a reservation and the restaurant was nearly empty

We had the opportunity to be seated on the large patio on a day that it actually wasn't raining. The service was a bit slow, a newer server, but otherwise a beautiful experience. The salads and the chicken sandwich were great and the portions are large. Highly recommend!!

Everything was great except for the 3 smokers seated next to us outside..thought that was illegal to seat smokers next to people that were eating or drinking? Checking with the Village of Itasca about this

I rarely like to go negative on a Restaurant, but after today‘s experience I can’t keep it to my self.

Let me begin by saying that the gentleman who served us was very nice and cordial. Unfortunately I walked out of there feeling empty and taken advantage of.
First, The food was excessively over priced for the quality they are serving. I ordered the pork belly tacos ($22 for three tacos) crazy right? Specially since pork belly is one of the cheapest cuts, but anyways, there was nothing in that plate worth that money. It was a big plate of shredded cabbage with three sad tacos served on some sort of a pita. I ordered an hanger steak for my wife (Mother’s day and all) again, got a 4oz $39 dollar piece of meat drenched in some sauce, overcooked asparagus and dry mashed potatoes. My kids ordered Man & Cheese, hard to screw that one up right?, well, they could not eat it, rare to see a kid turning mac n cheese.
At the end I was left with an expensive bill not worth even a fraction of what I paid. For that money we could have go to Mortons or Capital grill, which makes no sense.
I hate trashing a place like this, but people should know what to expect, specially since I look at 4.5 stars in the ratings and I can’t think how they got them.

Food was great! Service was great! Really great experience! Would definitely come back and recommend! Try the grilled calamari and Brussels sprouts appetizers. I had the crab cakes special entree, which was amazing. Burgers were great, salmon was fresh, overall amazing experience.

Our dinner was excellent. The price was as advertised for the birthday celebration. It was a little noisy but our table was right at the window overlooking the patio and course. We really enjoyed the evening very much.

I like this place but we picked a 60.00 bottle of wine that was terrible and the glasses of chardonnay were 15 each. We had salads (18 each) and nachos (17). Total bill 157 for an ok meal. Gotten to pricey for an overall ok meal. Won't be going back.
