Compliments to the Chef. The Lobster tail was Exquisite. Having had lobster tail, from two oceans and three different continents, the Golden Mast recipe was superb. Prime Rib was cooked rare and did not disappoint while the Oysters Rockefeller started the entire experience as a pleasant treat. Wine menu displayed many different satisfying wineries from different regions. Bottom line, great place and view.
I actually didn’t get to ear at Golden Mast for the second tine in a row. When we arrived the first time about a month ago. It was very busy and we waited FOREVER for someone to come to the front desk. When the hostess finally arrived she said we would have to wait at least 30-45 minutes for a table because she had so many walk ins. When I said we had a reservation she looked at me and said”I already told you, we had a lot of walk ins, what did you expect me to do? “. I was tempted to say “I think it is why they call it a reservation”but did not think that would get me anywhere.
Even though we were upset at how badly we were treated the last time, we decided to give it another go this week as we like the restaurant and eat there frequently. When we arrived, same thing! Waited forever for someone to pay attention to us at the front desk and when she did arrive told us we had to wait 30-45 minutes because they had so many walk ins. No apology, no sense that they gave a rip that we were getting horrible service again. I asked for the owner and she said I am the owner, what do you expect us to do? I said “I expect you to honor your reservation”. She looked at me as if I was some lower life form and said; “Let me guess, you made your reservation on Open table”. I said yes and she continued “I have been trying to shut them off since 4.30” I stood there incredulous that this had happened again and she just rolled her eyes and said again “what do you expect me to do?” I of course expect her to act like she is in a service business and carry on the service tradition of her family. Open table should take them off their website as they clearly have no intention of honoring Open Table reservations.
Food very good, service very slow and needs more attention to customer requests
Reservation online was very easy. We were seated right away. Mashed potatoes were hot very warm.
Prime rib was excellent.
We enjoyed our evening with the view and the food. Service was good.
Food was great. Great view overlooking the lake. Our 1st time there, and everything was good,
Terrific restaurant, food, and setting. Owner is engaged and kind to his guests. He assisted me as I was leaving with my Mom who was in a wheelchair. Excellent experience, Thank you!
We enjoyed our dinner very much. It was a Saturday night and we were able to book a table that afternoon. The Cosmopolitan Martini I had was one of the best around, just perfect! Dessert was also wonderful. Our waiter was very attentive. Wine was a bit pricy, but that was expected at a place such as this.
great food and portions. Great views and ambiance.
Even though the weather was not cooperative wit HEAVY rains, the place was great wit the exception of a loud party nearby. We were orimotly seated at a table overlooking the lake which was great!
The view and atmosphere was great. Went for Sunday brunch. Watching the omelet 'chef' was fun, as he did not appear to know what he was doing. Food went everywhere when he tried to flip the omelets. I also found it interesting that they had a great deal of trouble keeping the burner lit that they were trying to cook over.
The fruit plate that was brought to the table had one slice of each fruit for each person, which seemed chincy. As the courses came out, we gathered quite a large collection of dirty plates, as no one seemed interested in removing them from the table. Food was good, but not great. The bread basket contained products that appeared to be common grocery store items. The bagels that were included were mini sized, and again, one per person. The desert bar also did not appear to be anything too special.
Another thing that sticks out to me, was that I had made a reservation, and checked in on arrival. However, when they began seating people, they took whoever happened to be standing nearest the dining room, rather than going in the order of the reservations, or order of arrival. It was good I noticed this, and moved my party closer, otherwise we may have been the last ones seated, seeing as we generally try to stand back, and out of the way.
The experience may be different for a regular dinner, as opposed to the Sunday brunch. However, I am not in a hurry to test that.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. Great food great service. We love it!
Was able to make reservations online and request special seating for a special occasion. They selected a perfect location for seating. Ambiance, service, food, atmosphere were all great.
We made Saturday night dinner reservations to celebrate our wedding anniversary and our friends’ wedding anniversary. We requested a table for a party of 4 by the window with a view of the lake. There was a short wait for our table so we had drinks in the lounge. The live music in the lounge was so outstanding we didn’t mind the wait. We loved the Old-World German atmosphere at Golden Mast. Our server Stephan was very personable and knowledgeable. He was a natural with his German accent and background. He was attentive to our needs even though it was a very busy evening. Our dinner began with the small plates of Lobster Strudel and Stuffed Mushroom Caps which we shared. I would definitely order these again. For entrées two of us chose the Bay Five Salad with Salmon. Excellent choice as it was a wonderful blend of flavors. The other two entrées were the King cut Prime and Elk Medallions. Also great choices with tender meat done as ordered. We finished with a Strawberry Schaum Torte for each couple to share. We truly enjoyed our visit and plan to return next August to celebrate another Anniversary.
Always great food, service and ambiance!
Beautiful facility and great water view! Love it!
We went for our second anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. My wife is german and was a bit sceptical about wether the food would be authentic or not. She was amaxed at the wonderful job they did with the food. The ambiance was perfect and offered us the privacy we wanted as well as giving us an amazing view of the lake. The wait staff was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic getaway, or even just a fun night out. The cost of the food is a little high, but it is worth the price.
Our waitress was amazing. We had the surf and turf both with crab mine with p
The Golden Mast never disappoints! Perfect night by the lake to celebrate our anniversary!
The facility, staff and food are all excellent. Lot's of old world charm of a Germanic/Bavarian variety. Nice variety of dishes, with ethnic specialties. Food is excellent without being pretentious. All the wait staff are clearly trained to be attentive. All seats provide a lovely view of the lake.
Michael is the best waiter, so professional and kind. Always enjoy having him as our server!
We waited 45 mins even though we had a reservation due to them marking us down as being seated. We were told we could wait at the bar so waited until we saw others being seated 45 mins later and checked back.
We really came for a good steak and i was so disappointed. My med-rare $40 steak was close to well done. My boyfriends prime rib was too salty (and he loves salt btw) to even eat, most was not eaten and left. $120 later and we had just an awful meal. We are not the type to complain and cause a scene, we just won’t be back unfortunately.
I’m shocked a well known place could mess up meals this badly.
Wednesday night's in the summer are fantastic on the patio. Great food and music. Thanks!
The food was excellent, the service very friendly and accommodating, the ambiance is romantic...love all the wood work in the architecture and design.
Bartenders mix a very good drink. Wait staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient and paced our meal well. The Duck was exceptionally good as was the German combination plate.
Unique food, waitress we had wasn’t very welcoming or friendly, my guess is it was just a bad day.
We took clients from out of the country mostly for the food. The food is ok. The view is everything. I would go there for appetizers and drinks and sit on the patio.
Waitress wasn’t too friendly
All business, didn’t talk at all.
Slow service and the red cabbage was overcooked and sickly sour
Had a nice quiet dinner with my wife. Food was great as usual and the service was good. Have often recommended to friends.
Main course was poorly presented. French Fries were overdone. Shrimp were reheated and not freshly prepared. Salmon was ok, but spinach burnt. First time in over 30 yrs we experienced a less than satisfactory dinner.
It was an absolutely fantastic dining experience and the atmosphere was second to none!
Absolutely love this place! Great service, delicious food and loved the live music on the patio overlooking the lake! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect date night! Two thumbs up👍🏻👍🏻!!
We had father's day brunch there and it was delicious! Originally our plan was to sit outside, however, the weather didn't cooperate and we were pleasantly surprised to find they had moved our reservation inside!
Just love it here! Great food and atmosphere..highly recommend!
The Golden Mast is excellent! Food is fabulous and service is fantastic! Celebrated our anniversary there. Love the setting with the huge wall of windows overlooking the lake. Just beautiful. We both had the select your own surf and turf. This was really nice as you could customize your selections and steak size. Plus, it was delicious. Can’t wait to go again soon!
A very good restaurant which we always enjoy dining at.
It was well worth the drive. Something for everyone on the menu. Great service. Great food. Great Drinks. We were treated like we were part of the family ( in a good way). The worst part of the visit was trying to chose how much you could eat and not crawl out.
Save room for dessert! Better yet, maybe eat dessert first.
You can choose from full meals or make yourself a meal with starters, soup , salad and dessert.
My sauerbraten was excellent with the red cabbage and spaetzl; however, I regret to report that my wife's pork chop was rather dry and not too tasty. The recommended red wine was exceptionally good and the ambiance was great for our date.
The food was excellent. The restaurant has a great, relaxing view.
We ordered the German specialties, Wiener Schnitzel, and the combination plate, which included small portions of several German specialties. My Wiener Schnitzel and the accompanying spaetzel were somewhat too cool and dry. The vegetables were cooked and seasoned delightfully. The spinach salad with hot bacon dressing was very good. We were treated with a wonderful Schaum Torte for dessert to celebrate our anniversary. We had a table side window view of the lake--nice.
