Waitress may have been new...had to wait quite awhile for drinks..then told us to go to salad bar..then our soup came...had to ask for bread...prime rib not as good as usual...there was a bus load there so put the sub par service down to that. We will not let this keep us from going again...

We have been going to your restaurant for 28 years.the food and servers are amazing,but Saturday night was a terrible night our experience was nothing that we ever thought we would encounter there.it was a50th birthday party they were loud and drunk.using inappropriate language.we didn’t even stay for dessert,we payed the bill and left.in my opinion the party should have been private.

I have been to Gulfs many times and this time the food was just ok, which is unusual. They need to change up the salad bar abit and definitely should have labels on things. I don’t eat seafood and one of the salads ha shrimp which turned me off my plate entirely.

Went to Golf's for a nice birthday dinner for my friend. We had heard it was a good restaurant and were excited for the dinner. We were absolutely blown away by how amazing it was, the food was amazing, our waiter was kind, funny and surprised us with the most delicious cheesecake that is homemade. We are planning another visit here soon!

This is a nice place with good food. Prices are very reasonable for what you get. The view is awesome, the service is good too. Food comes with bread and a salad bar so you can't leave hungry. The only thing I didn't like was a rather large and loud gathering in the other room, cheering about something every few minutes. It ruins the ambience of this otherwise nice and rather quiet places.

We made a reservation for our wedding anniversary. I requested a quiet romantic table by the window. We got anything but that. We were seated in a room that had 2 large parties there - full tables of over 10 people each. It was so loud we could not even have a conversation with each other sitting across from one another. That was extremely disappointing. That being said the food was very good and our server was excellent - very friendly. However, the loudness of the room we were in overshadowed the good - especially when we only get out for a nice meal the 2 of us without our kids rarely.

Delightful! A wonderful Father's Day meal was enjoyed at Golf's. I have enjoyed brunches, lunches and dinners here. Great value for the money, the scenery is lovely and is perfect for special occasions. The only disappointing issue is the two sets of stairs facing one at the entrance. This is awkward and difficult for older patrons with mobility issues.

The food quality was fabulous however the tables were very close together and it was noisy and extremely busy ~ we had to wait in an extended line-up (on every occasion) to access the food tables. Although the wait staff was friendly and outgoing they were very busy and we had to wait for drink service and food clearing from the table.

Last time we dined at Golf’s the food was excellent...this time not so much. My husband ordered the prime rib and felt it was not nearly as good as the last time he had it. He did not want the potato so the server recommended a broiled tomato with parmaesan on it. I have never seen parmaesan that looks just like marble cheese in bot colour and consistency. He had the escargots as his appetizer and it seemed to be covered in the same cheese as well. I ordered the beef tenderloin on spinach specifically because of the spinach...my dish arrived and the meat was served on leafy lettuce greens with grape tomatoes. I asked the server where was the spinach and was told, or sorry we don’t have any spinach right now. I would have preferred to know this at the time of ordering. I also had a very disappointing shrimp cocktail to start....it was served in a martini glass, no plate and the glass had a dirty stem, plus the shrimp had a “ just thawed” taste. Needless to say it was a disappointment. Golfs is a K-W institution but it has become tired in both it’s decor and based on our last meal, its food as well. Would not recommend.

The occasion was our 68th Anniversary which falls just days before my 88th birthday. This may help to explain why I goofed when paying the bill and ended up adding only 10 cents as a tip instead of the $10 which was my intention. The very special young lady who served us (Operator: Missy 3) went out of her way to produce a second bill for $10 which I was happy to pay. Unfortunately there is nothing on the Customer Copy to indicate that this was an intended tip, and I can only hope that Missy was able to ensure that she was rewarded for the excellent service she provided.

so certainly not terrible, however, a few things worth noting,,,salad bar is very disappointing for an establishment of this calibre, the french onion soup flavor was perhaps something the chef might enjoy but neither my date or myself liked it (very odd indeed), the irish coffee not up to their previous standards and both my date and I felt very rushed by the staff,,, that said both the rib steak and surf and turf were good and done as asked

Visited twice within a eight days. First time I had the pork special (Thursday evening), it was delicious. The second time I had the Prime Rib special (Friday evening) and the beef was very difficult to cut and even more difficult to chew. I mentioned it to our server and she replaced the cut with another. It was only slightly better.
